    Blimey. This thread scares me. My CV looks so, so, SO bare. I really need to fix up and start getting things done.
    Jesus lord mercy. This thread has given me nightmares.

    Thanks Jamie.

    Does anyone know if theres only a maximum of one point awarded for getting a national undergrad prize? Or is it 1 point per prize?

    And do prizes at conferences count for anything at all? And on that note, do posters/presentations qualify for any points?

    Thank you in advance for any advice

    Did we come to a conclusion about whether getting distinction in finals/honours (provided the standard qualification isnt MBBS Hons!!) counts towards anything?

    Thinking about ACCS EM. I'm not finding much useful information about the application process other than "apply via London deanery".

    Questions for anyone who has gone through the application process or just knows more than me:
    1. Do you apply to a deanery and only once successful rank individual hospitals?
    2. Do the three ACCS years tend to be in the same trust or do they move around - if they move is there an element of choice?

    I know it varies between deaneries probably but I'd be interested to hear what other have experienced or know.

    1) Yes, though some deaneries (e.g. London) are subdivided into smaller "schools" and you will be asked to rank the schools prior to interview.
    2) I think that the first two years are usually at one trust and then the third at another, but this may not be true everywhere.

    Guys, does a re-audit (some else's audit, but you did the intervention and re-audit and presentation of re-audit) count as closing the loop?

    If people need advice about applying for ACCS EM then let me know - PM me.

    I applied for 2015 entry and got my top choice - but when I was applying I struggled to find ANYONE else applying or significantly able to help. I'd be really happy to help.No hesitation - just ask.

    Why would I help? The unique thing about EM is that it's in our interests as a profession that we get as many UK consultants as possible for it to work at all. For me to have a sustainable career in the future I need YOU to be successful.

    Has this system changed at all since this was posted?

    Looking at this now has me scared. I've been mucking about and just faffing around so much at uni :nooo: Don't regret it at all tbh as I'm really happy but I don't like the fact I sometimes lose sight of what I'm doing this degree for and maybe have compromised work a little

    It's only the end of your first year, don't sweat it at all. It's far more important that you enjoy your time at uni for now.

    Hey guys,

    I've just got a question about prizes. I got a 3rd prize in a poster presentation at a national conference - does this count as a "national prize related to medicine" and can I claim the 8 points for it? I just remember someone telling me that only first place counts but this doesn't seem to be clear from the application forms.
