    Hi guys, I'm currently in year 1 of Medicine at Keele. I'm a graduate with a BMedSc and an MSc but it took me 3 goes at getting into Medicine and I nearly gave up! If any of you want advice about the interview process or the course in general just shout, happy to help

    More like can I copy and paste a sentence from my PS? They really don't give us a lot of room on this form, do they? I've got 171 words for one section!

    Yes, they interview the top 100 applicants based purely on academics. To achieve full academic marks, you need 7 A*s at GCSE and 4 As at AS. But if you have achieved A2 grades, you need 3 A*s at A2 and an A at AS for full marks.
    Rickstahhh, this is not entirely true, I had no where near the grades you have stated and got an interview and an offer within a week! Keele place a huge amount of emphasis on work experience and patient interaction - it is right up there with good academics. Obviously it is unlikely you can study Medicine without having good grades but no one should give up as I got ABC at A Level and I've still managed to get there and a lot of people in my year aren't straight A/A* candidates They follow this through on the course, we have 'EL' sessions every week which focus on communication skills and exploring questions such as 'what makes a good Doctor'.

    I hear what you are saying.
    But, I am talking about the 100 people they interview based purely on academics.
    They interview a further 300 maybe 400 depending on R&R and other factors.

    Can I ask what u spoke about in ur roles and responsibilities form, obviously not to plagiarise ! However I did work exp at a hospital and hospice, both of which involved a lot of shadowing, I also work at a tutor centre but have never really had the opportunity to go above and beyond my expected role as it's just helping young students with maths and English. After looking at the website, it seems they want examples of outstanding activity

    When you fill out the form I've noticed the maximum limit for characters for each section is 1100 characters yet it shouldn't be for the last two sections should it???

    I noticed this too! I'm unsure what to do,whether to stick to the limit that they say or to go up to the 1,100 character limit....
    The extra characters sure would be useful, but I don't want it to get cut off when they receive it or something. I'm gonna email them to ask so hopefully they will reply tomorrow

    Nope, but at least you know they are considering you! Did you put any of your university module grades on your UCAS form?

    Did you put all your module marked from 2nd and 3rd year on UCAS? Cos they could just be asking for that reason.

    I'm a grad and out all my marks down and I haven't been emailed.

    You do not have to use all the experiences stated.
    Just use the ones you think are appropriate for each section. So you can use the same one for all 4 if it seems to fit.
    Thank you!
