    What's the Manchester area like? I couldn't go to the open day but people were saying that the campus is amazing but there are lots of dodgy areas in town. No you did so well 👏🏽 be proud of yourself. I got 713 and band 1 hence why I'm applying to Kings and only 1 bmat uni. Yeah I live in London 😂 Everything's so expensive here tho 😭
    I think Manchester is really nice as a whole, some parts are dodgy but it's like that in London too as I'm sure you know I loved the campus though and it was so nice how could walk outside the campus and be in the city! And thank you so much that means a lot😘 well done with yours as well! What are you stats like for Kings then especially as I know they want quite a lot of things 😂 I would really love to live in London but like you said it's very expensive which is a bit dodgy when you got to live off student loans alone 😂😂

    No worries! You'll definitely get an interview as long as you fill out the form properly and make it somewhat decent 😂 what GCSEs and predictions do you have is what I meant? At least you'd save lots of money by staying at home though for 4 years!

    Yeah haha, will be disappointed if I don't 😂 Medicine is all I want to do. Ohhh- A*AA predictions and 5A*s 3As and 1B for GCSEs unfortunately went to a **** school for GCSEs so hoping everything else will make up for them. What are yours? That's true! Gonna have so much debt 😭😭

    I think we are very similar if not the same person😂, I have the same GCSEs but A*A*A predictions! Medicine is all I want to do as well like I do have back up options but just don't see myself being completely happy in them

    Woah, think we'd get along very well 😊 What are your A* predictions in? Yes exactly, medicine seems so fulfilling 😌 What did you put as your 5th choice

    Bio and Chem! What about you? And I didn't put anything as if I get rejected I'll have a gap year and try again, then if that doesn't work I think I'll do pharmacy as I can't afford post grad route! What about you?

    Hey! What I did was I put a date in June 2017 when I know I will stop - so you could always put a date in the future if you know when the volunteering will come to an end

    Manchester don't score/look at GCSEs after you've met the minimum right? Purely based from your UKCAT and personal statement etc?

    As soon as you meet the minimum academic criteria, step 1 is done. Your academic history is then thrown out and not looked at again. Then they check your UKCAT. As long as it's over the cut off, you're through and step 2 is done. UKCAT is thrown out.

    Then they'll check your Non Academic Info form. Not your PS. A few will be rejected after looking at this form but the majority will be through to interview.

    Hope this helps

    I can just imagine me being overjoyed at meeting the UKCAT cut off and then all of a sudden I get a rejection because of my form 😂 I'm on word rn with no idea how to go about it, this is so much harder than the PS😭
