    Hey guys, I have received an offer from Liverpool of AAA, but I also have a higher offer of A*AA from another uni.
    I was wondering if anyone knows whether you would be accepted on the medicine course if you put it down as your Insurance choice? So if I put down my higher offer of A*AA as my firm and Liverpool AAA as my insurance, and ended up achieving AAA, would I be guaranteed a place on the course? Or would it be dependant upon the number of places available after people who have previously firmed to achieve their grades, just like clearing?
    My school was unable to advise me on this, so I'm hoping that someone on here can
    The offer is non-redactable. Thus if you match the offer, you will have a place at Liverpool. Your bigger problem will then be that you will struggle with accommodation and pre-enrolment checks.

    Does anyone have any idea about the leniency with grades for Liverpool eg. The likelihood of still being accepted if you get AAB as opposed to AAA. I basically have 2 med offers (both AAA) and a kings biomed offer (AAB) and I don't know what to firm and insure. I've always thought though that Liverpool would be more lenient than others as they are more personality orientated?

    Hey
    For those currently in year 1 or above at Liverpool, what books are a must have? I'm aware that some of the books are available for borrowing from the library but I prefer having my own copy. Can you recommend any websites? Also, I'm not quite sure how much maintenance loan I need; how much do you usually spend per week?

    Yep same boat, so how are you studying at the minute and juggling it all?

    Especially the transition metals stiff at the end of unit 5?

    My biggest problem is I just straight up forget stuff, I'm not used to having to retain a year's worth of knowledge, I've never had to and here I am for the hardest exams I've ever sat and we have to :O

    3 letters will define everything kinda scary

    Omg transition metals is the worst topic and I know I'm not the only one who thinks dat nearly everyone I know says that transition metals is so hard :/ tbh wat I'm doing at the minute is using these Easter hols to full on get thru all the stuff I cnt do and wil do lots of practice questions and past papers and then after Easter go over the stuff I can do how about u ?

    Are the crown place rooms going to be tiny since they're the cheapest? Also, if you get a double bed, is the room the same size as a single bed ie you'll end up with less floor space in a double?

    The curriculum is changing majorly for years 1 and 3 next year so no one will be able to really give you an idea as no one will have gone through it yet. Don't buy anything until you get here though they will brief you on which textbooks they recommend when you get here.

    Please see the OP. Whilst Kaylain speaks rationally, the books one uses to study are unlikely to change (after all, the content for medicine is the same; only the methods in learning it will be slightly different). You will find the unofficial book list in the OP.

    Well actually Years 2 & 4 are remaining the same for the next 12 months, only Year 1 and 3 are changing in September.
