    I'm genuinely surprised I've got offers. Everyone else's CV is amazing and yet mine is just a bit crap comparatively.

    Yeah, but you're obviously a modest decent guy. Stuff like that comes across at interviews (that's the whole point of interviews basically TBH)

    There is a Facebook page for class of 2021 started by some of the current first year med students who can answer any questions you have about the course etc.

    Depends as to whether you believe in the alphabet system they are potentially using.

    My opinion (could be far from correct) is that they are currently working through Scottish applicants and are around the M-O mark.

    If the offers continue at this rate I would presume mid next week for the RUK/ other applicants.

    TSR makes it out like you need years of volunteering etc to get in. In reality hardly anyone actually has it

    I'm a current 4th year at Glasgow. Well done to everyone with offers but don't be downhearted if you haven't heard yet, quite a few people in my year got in at the last minute as not everyone takes up their offer and conditions are sometimes flexible.

    In terms of choosing which uni to go to I wouldn't worry too much as studying medicine is unlike any other degree as everyone gets integrated through medic events pretty early on.

    For anyone who is unfortunate this year, just persevere and reapply for next year. If you really want to be a doctor you've got to be committed to it.

    Any European heard anything yet?

    I am curious to know, how do Scottish universities fare with English ones when it comes to international recognition. Say for example that I would like to work in Australia or New Zealand (since I do have some family ties there) after I finish foundation years (or even a bit later down the road, during core training). Does it make a difference?

    Same thing with foundation schools. Does it make a difference?

    I have several friends that all graduated from Scottish Universities and had no bother finding jobs in Australia and New Zealand. The majority of UK universities are well respected for the quality of their medical graduates.
