    Absolute non-story. The tables look really sedate actually.
    Look's pretty much par for the course as far as medical student activities go.

    Seen this? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...worry-all.html

    Daily Fail being sensationalist again...
    Lads :rolleyes:

    The likelihood of GMC and the med school getting involved for all in the pictures, I guess quite high? :/

    Trivia:
    - "The student rugby team" is not, in fact, the student rugby team. Lazy reporting or successful trolling on the part of the Daily Mail.
    - One of those guys at the top is, in fact, an absolute mentalist.

    Don't know about the GMC, but the med school will almost certainly get involved.

    My logical reasoning from another thread:

    Who the **** had such an agenda as to send in photos to the Daily Mail? :lolwut:

    - Local residents?

    - Concerned freshers/parents from the new intake?

    - Some fiendishly clever troll from UCL? (or maybe even GKT, though that's pushing it :awesome:)

    Yes, med school in first instance. They don't need GMC.

    It read as if a reporter was physically there, acting as a student, and therefore may have taken the photos themself?

      More likely its a student from imperial. Or bar staff sick of such disgusting antics.

      Because lets face it, its juvenile and its rank. Chunder buckets. Seriously.


      Most of us did it at med school and grew out of it. It was a right of passage
      But its still grim.

      And the fuss won't last long. Just like it didn't for St Johns or St Catherines.

      But usually the colleges come down HARD on all the sports/drinking socs.

      Hi. I'm also applying to King's for physiology (as well as Leeds). I don't expect to get in though. My year one grades were pretty average.
      (Original post by i'm no superman)
      Yeah, for now I think I'll try and get onto studying a broader based subject for my intercalated degree. Your choices are way too specialised for my liking - I have no idea what I want to do when I graduate!
      I'm clearly too thick for the King's iBSc - the application form is confusing me. For the module selection bit, presumably you put in the ones it lists on the website for your chosen subject, but how do you pick the optional ones? Cos it says:
      And one option..examples of which include

      •Oral Biology (30 credits),
      •Anatomy Dissection (15 credits),
      •Biology of Ageing (15 credits), or
      •a language option
      Does that mean I can only pick from those?

      Yeah I think you need to select your optional modules from that particular list.

      How many credits do the core modules form?

      I agree with Nick Jamie.

      I just hope that Reynolds isn't shut down amidst the fuss - it was already walking a fine line as I say.

      60, then I have to choose between a normal research project (30) or a long research project (45), which obv decides how many credits I need from the option list.

        Depends on the college.

        THere was a great bar in Tommies hospital that was a big part of med school life.

        then hospital wanted to build evilina, having a bunch of people vomiting outside a kids hospital wasn't on so they waited until they had enough evidence of hideous drunkeness (with a few ED admissions as well) and they shut it down.

        The one with all the signatures on the ceiling? We used to rehearse for the musical in there occasionally when I was in first year - after it was shut down, obviously - it's a bit of a sorry sight now.

        Cool, who knows - we might end up in the same class this time next year! :p:

        Have you looked at the application form? I'm actually surprised we have to fill in our A-Level grades. I averaged about 74% in first year but I hear they place more weighting on centile rankings, which doesn't do my marks any justice. I came 26th (first quartile) in the clinical sciences yet 73rd and 79th in CPH/PPD and the OSCE respectively, which was in the third quartile. I feel inclined to say that CPH/PPD shouldn't count. :shh:

        Edit: There's about 140 in my year.
        I'm actually fairly similar. My overall year ranking was lower second/upper third quartile, but in the knowledge papers I was about 35.

        Year of 130.

        You apparently do after you sit Mocks in 4th year. Here's hoping mines will be decent.

        I would have been in the top quartile 1st and 2nd year, second for 3rd but bugger knows for this one.

        I need to know it next month for intercalated application... there's no way I'm top quartile anyway.

        How did mocks go, btw?

        Interesting. I think perhaps the Admin lady, Penny, would be helpful. I think she helps work them out or at the very least has access to them or would be able to put you in touch with someone who does know how to get it for you.

        Mocks, went meh. It wasn't an obvious disaster nor was it a clear winner. A large proportion of it could have went either way, and now I am just sick of waiting.

        I've been dwelling on it so long that I haven't arranged my elective, which has a deadline of Jan 14th. Le bugger.

        Penny is away until 4 days before my deadline... I emailed Ms D and am waiting for med school to return from it's extended hibernation.

        When are results out? Ooh elective Where'd you wanna go?
