    what are your AS grades this time around?
    BDE I'm retaking one unit of the D to pull it up cause that unit pulled my overall grade down, one unit from the B, and both units of the E. Teachers said they'll probably predict me around ABB/ABC/BBB

    I'm not trying to be mean but if you got BDE second time around, do you think you will be able to cope with medicine? You already retook the year, will retaking it again help?

    I've heard they only look at predicted grades and final grades?

    Hi,

    I decided to post this thread for the BM6 medical course. It feels very competitive as there are only 30 places. Does anyone have any advise, experience or handy tips for the selection process, interviews or personal statements?


    Thanks
    Hey

    What were your as grades?

    Where would I mention my reason? on my personal statement?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    No, your teacher should write it in your reference. You can mention it in your ps if you really want to though it is not recommended. When you call them ask if they'll accept an additional letter from you explaining the situation.

    :yes: Usually yes. As you're asking for extenuating circumstances they might look at your AS grades but I've not head of them doing it before. Then again people usually apply after doing 2 years of A2 rather than 2 of AS.

    It wasn't on this year, but as next summer is so far away I doubt they've decided whether or not it's on or not yet!
