    All year groups have been 'trialling' aspects of the new system.

    Exams remain the same: mocks in January with summatives in summer.

    There is no clinical work in 1st year (not worth mentioning anyway).
    Thank you for this!

    Yh the 25 mark essays

    Try not to worry about unit 5 biology- I thought it was the most difficult out of all of them, but I ended up getting my highest mark in that last year! The essay is basically a chance to get you as many marks as possible... I didn't even finish my essay last year and I got ums for that module in the A* boundary. Just practice as many essays as you can and brush up on your AS knowledge, as the essay is synoptic so that would gain you marks

    Thank you! I did absolutely awful in unit 4 and the practical assessment so thankfully biol5 got my UMS up :teehee:
    If I'm being honest, I reckon I got lucky with the rest of it. I don't know if you've done the June 13 BIOL5 paper, but the majority of the questions were "how science works" and interpretation rather than testing actual knowledge, so I was able to figure out a lot of them anyway.
    However I found notes off getrevising.co.uk that were very specific and concise- I cant remember which ones they were exactly as I haven't done biology since last summer, but they were much more useful than the textbook (I thought so anyway).
    Good luck!

    Hi everyone

    Congratulations to those who have secured places for September. I am a grad medic starting in September and am about to sign for a 4 bed flat in Kensington (big rooms and cheap rent) but unfortunately the 4th tenant is dropping out since they've recently learnt that they will be able to buy a property instead. Therefore, we have a spare room we'd like you to fill. If there is anyone out there who is starting in September, or already at Liverpool that needs a room and doesn't want to go into halls, then let me know and we can arrange for you to come and view the house.

    Thanks!

    Hey- Does anyone on here know how feasible it will be to work on Saturdays while studying, at least for the first 3 years? From personal experience, stats or hearsay?The curriculum will be new but I expect the work load to be more or less the same. Btw I plan to work not out of necessity but for continuity and balance.
    Thanks.

    Should be doable, I think if you manage your time ok then you'll be fine. I've not worked myself, but I have met others at Liverpool and other medical universities who have managed to work and study at the same time - and they have been fine.

    How often do Liverpool accept people who achieve AAB? Im finding the maths exams very difficult this year even though I've worked hard for them... It's very possible I'll end up with a B in maths instead of an A.
    I'm resitting too. If I don't get into uni this year I don't know what I'm going to do

    There's a few AAB students around but it depends on a number of factors, such as how many student meet the entry requirements and if they have any spaces left. If they did have spaces left, I think they'd rank the few AAB individuals considered, according to their interview score. This is just what I think though, might be completely different. I do think if there were AAB students being considered, they'd be first timers and not resitters.

    What about if they have extenuating circumstances
    Do they get considered after those who do better on results day ?
    Really hope not :/

    Hi I have an unconditional offer and I am on my second gap year I'm kind of worried that I will not be able to follow anything after two years of down time. Does any of the current students have any suggestions as to what I should read before September.

    The curriculum will refresh your memory for any essential science in years 1 and 2. If you are worried and really really bored, go over your human biology notes and if you are super-keen and on the verge of suicide from boredom, try some of the recommended anatomy/physiology books in the first post here (for year 1 students).

    Can someone please shed some light on this? Although I've read the new curriculum I still don't quite understand it. Will PBL be completely scrapped or reduced? Or will the amount of PBL sessions remain the same while the amount of lectures/plenaries increase? If 'yes' to the last question, does that mean the new year one timetable will be more packed than the previous year's? Not that I'm complaining.
    On timetables, does anyone know when we will be getting it?

    PBL, in name, is being scrapped.

    The positive aspects of PBL will carry over into CBL on top of additional things you mentioned.

    The timetable as it was, was hardly daunting. If anything, a little (not a lot) more work might actually benefit students in the future.

    You will get your timetable during induction week (which is usually the first week of university). Keep an eye out on your university e-mail address.

    Do you think, as a Liverpool med student with this new curriculum, students will have time to have a part-time job? My student loan doesn't even cover the rent and (if I even get the grades!) I'm really worried about not having much money to live on. Any advice please?
