    Could someone please explain what dissection with cadavers means? And also what do unis who don't do a 'full body dissection' do? I've always been confused about this.
    Leicester offer Cadaveric dissection: each group (of 7-8 students) is assigned a designated body for the entire year.

    Most of us tend to make a right mess of our Dissection (apart from a select few gifted individuals) so Leicester also have Prosection material (e.g. pre-cut upper limb and lower limb) so we can see what things should actually look like.

    At my newcastle interview all the guys wore a suit! I think the general consensus is to go with a suit, so I would suggest that!! Also, might as well go in a full suit and then remove blazer/tie if overdressed (I'd rather do that than go without and realise that everyone else is in full suits!)

    I am pretty sure there are about 2 minute breaks between each so there is time to move to each station and read the task so add another 16 minutes

    Congratulations! How are you prepping for it?

    Thank you! I'm honestly not sure where to even start. I guess just researching Leicester as a university as well as a medical school, and tightening up my answers to questions about personal qualities (and making sure I have examples!) Do you have an interview?

    This is what I was wondering! I got my AS Level certificates today but only have the originals, and I'm guessing since there was no mention of them we don't need our GCSE ones? I'm so unsure

    ...oh ok. This is well and truly the marathon of all interviews!! (My newcastle one was barely 30 mins !)

    The roleplay is gonna be really interesting (if they do it)...no idea how I'll do on that :L
