    20 mins walk. Although that depends how fast you walk. My bf can make it in 10 mins but we usually walk together so it's longer.
    Thnx!!

    Hey guys!!!
    Just booking accommodation and The ensuite at university park is full. Bit confused whether i should go for ensuite at jubilee or shared ensuite at university park? Is jubilee far from the medical school?
    Depends where abouts on Jubilee. Newark/Southwell is about a 15 min walk, can be less if you walk a little faster (I'd say I'd do the walk in 10)

    For those of you who still haven't heard...
    I phoned this morning and was told that not all updates have been made on UCAS yet, but now the admissions manager is away until Thursday, so those of us still waiting won't hear before Thursday.

    The lady on the phone didn't really say... I did ask whether all offers have been given out. She just said that not all decisions have been put on UCAS yet, and they have to wait for the admissions manager before these are sent out.

    I'm only speculating, but do you think it's possible that they haven't made a decision about our applications yet? Seeing as they're waiting for the admissions manager, it could be possible that final decisions need to be made about offers/rejections, and maybe we are on hold until they work out how many people firm?

    There is no full-body dissection until after Christmas.
    After Christmas, you have one 3 hour session per week (usually on a Thursday or Friday).

    In terms of importance, 10% of the 'SF1' module is scored from an 'in-course assessment'. This includes the quality of your group's dissection, the score you get in your dissection session for the question you get asked, and the average score for your group's questions as a whole.

    The quality of your group's dissection each week is marked out of 5; this is scored on whether you've shown the different things on that week's criteria (for example, specific muscles, nerves, arteries etc).
    Over about 15 mins sometime in the last half hour of the dissection session, everyone is asked a question relating to that week's anatomy scored out of 5. That also contributes to your in-course assessment score. How your group perform in the questions as a whole also contributes.

    Sounds a bit daunting but if you calculate it, each week's scores don't count for much overall at all! It's just the med school's way to make sure you keep up with the anatomy because there's quite alot of anatomy to learn, it'd be really difficult to cram it at the end of term for exams!

    I know people that highly enjoy dissection, and others that aren't great fans but they cope alright Any other questions?

    That's really thorough and helpful, thanks! What can we conduct our BMedSci research on and where?

    Hey,

    which catered accommodation would you recommend for medics on University Park? Thinking about firming Nottingham and would like to apply for accommodation as soon as possible.

    Thanks!

    You can't choose a catered hall, you just apply for the room type you want and get randomly allocated a hall. Hope this helps!

    Good to know,

    I looked at the room types, but would you say that ensuite is necessary? I live in a boarding school at the moment and share one bathroom with about 20 other guys and it works well. Is it very different in that case?

    There's actually no ensuite rooms left on campus and I filled out the form on Monday night! I mean it's up to you but I think you share it with much less than 20. I've gone for single study

    My daughter is in a single study on Uni Park, shares a shower/toilets with several others - hasn't had any problems, you're never more than about a 10 metre walk from facilities.

    I am not entirely sure, sorry! I'll worry about it when I get to that stage :P
    But I do know you can do research from a wide range of medicine. I'm out at the moment but will look it up for you some more when I get in

    Hey guys, I got an offer a week back. My offer for the IB is 36 points 6,6,6 at higher level but this does not include the three core points. Did anyone get a different offer? Or thinks that the offer is 36/45 and not 36/42. thank you
