    Does anybody know if UCL has a non-smoking rule for medical students? I was a bit confused as to why they asked us if we smoked on the health questionnaire. Thanks

    I could probably do June but not May because of exams! Let me know what date and I'll see if I'm free.

    As far as I know, the only real opportunity is the electives in year 6, although you could go during your summers.

    I know lots of medical students at UCL that smoke. Not advisable because patients can smell it on you when you see them, but they do allow it.

    Would 5A* 5A's and 1 B hinder you from applying to UCL for medicine. Would it put you at much of a disadvantage?

    I wouldn't apply I'm afraid. For 2015 entry, UCL says this:

    "All UK candidates, or those who have received their secondary education in the UK, must offer GCSE (or IGCSE,
    O-level, IB or EB equivalent) at grade B or above in both English Language and Mathematics."

    That's the requirement so I don't think you'd be successful with your application if you applied. Sorry

    What was the B in? Otherwise, yes, I'd think you'd be fine with that Just do well in AS/A2.

    The B will probably be in drama, I'm trying to see if I can push it up to an A though. Will that be okay?

    If you could get a B or higher, and then do well is AS/A2, then you definitely stand a chance I'd think carefully though since it might be a bad idea to resit GCSEs during A Levels as it could compromise your A Level grades which are more important. Maybe take a gap year; it might help a lot

    I'm sure a B in drama will still allow you to get into medicine, especially as it's a GCSE

    Yep. Everyone has to have it. If you can't get it through your GP then you'll get it at UCL anyway. Very costly though for anywhere you get it. It costs about £180.

    Hi,

    I have questions about the Health Questionnaire and vaccinations. Can I send in my health questionnaire whilst leaving the Hepatitis B, and Varicella sections empty as I haven't received the necessary vaccinations for them yet? Can I do this knowing that I can receive the vaccinations (for a price) at a later date (like after the deadline for the questionnaire)?

    Can I send the health questionnaire in, as long as I've had the routine childhood vaccinations, without fear of having my questionnaire returned to me on the basis that it's 'incomplete'?

    Thanks for your help anyhow!

    Hi I'd write "did not receive" in the boxes that you haven't had the vaccines for. As long as every box has something in it, they won't send it back.

    I sent mine in with nothing in the Hep B section, and all that happened was that I received an email from them stating they'd seen I hadn't had a Hep B vaccine, but if I had started it since sending the form in, or planned to start it soon, that I didn't have to reply to the email, but they did say you could get it done there

    Hey just wondering, Im thinking of applying to UCL next year and am pretty worried about getting my A* prediction in chemistry for a2 ( my school predicts an a* only if you get above 275 in AS chemistry) because i messed up my EMPA but i think i should definitely get predicted an A grade ( and will get an A at AS) and i am pretty confident that i will get a* predictions in my other subjects ( maths, bio and economics). Given that everyone on this thread has been predicted 4 a* at a level, would it be unwise to apply to UCL because of this? i.e. not doing myself any favours by applying to a place which is pretty set on high a2 predictions?

    Of course i still need to do the BMAT and there are a plethora of things that determine the strength of your application but will this situation with my academics hold me back? ( btw got 8a* and 2.5A's at gcse)

    Thanks
