After trawling through some of the older threads, UCL give out quite a few pre-interview rejections in early February and BSMS put a lot of applicants on a reserve list in late January. You can't really predict it though - in the 2008 cycle, King's rejected a lot of applicants before the Christmas holidays yet left it till early January this time round.

I think February will prove to be a relatively active and crucial month for a few of us.
Thanks !MEna. Yeah, better off not trying to second-guess these admissions loonies I suppose..

As long as UCAS doesn't try and break my heart again during these Jan exams, I'm ok with not hearing anything. Then maybe I'll think about crossing February's bridge when I get to it

Are trawling through threads and searching for lil hope that there is left just like me?

Im guessing UCL hasnt come to my application yet, otherwise i would have been rejected by now.

Bristol ... *blank mind*

Im waiting on SGUL..the drama queen...


Hows revision??
Yeah, I do it a lot too! It's fun looking back at those threads since everyone's sig is now like "omg medicine '08 fresherrr!" yet their posts back then depict exactly what a lot of us are going through right now. Touch wood it works out for us both too!

Revision is slowly progressing. I tend to focus on my first exams rather my last ones so I'm quite prepared for Chemistry and one Biology module. I'm relatively certain I'll end up resitting CPT4 and BYB5 in June but to be honest, I'm determined to get Unit 4 (chem) and BYB4 out of the way for good. They're the important ones right now so I'm not too fussed about the others.

the majority of us would have heard the outcomes of our application in 12 weeks time which seems like a milestone away but n reality it is actually quite near

May be its good that I dont hold a medicine offer yet. Otherwise, i would be day dreaming, oh so happily, and only aim to meet the offer or just thinking 'i will do it in due time'...lemme get more of this daydream :P: and planning what to take to uni LMAO. But, now this zero offered me can only think of achieving one thing : grades.

I do realise the waiting isnt really helping me either. Nightmares as opposed to daydreams. Haha.

That's the one thing I didn't like about it! I've already dropped a subject at school! Seriously, get as much work done as you can before you get an offer! Then your A levels will be the last thing on your mind!

erm...im confused...you didnt like my statement?

May be i didnt make myself clear.

Its good that i dont have an offer yet as it would limit my aims. I would only aim to meet the offer just about, when i could be doing better. But, right now, im aiming for the maximum as Im not given a limit (AAB or AAA) and also to secure myself just like you said .
