    I'm just finishing up my Biomed degree at Newcastle; applying to stay here for my medical degree. I'm pretty well versed in all the admin procedures/policies so if you've got any questions about that or about the uni/med school/anything else then just ask! 🙂
    Awesome! I'm a Grad applicant also - but in Year 2 now. What sort of work experience/volunteering do you have? And what sort of societies have you joined at uni? you can PM me if you like so we don't derail this thread!

    Does anyone know whether the number of places will increase as Durham university transferred its medical school to Newcastle?

    Not dramatically; but eventually they'll gradually increase. Ncl med is starting up a pharmacy course in the next few years too so the entire faculty In general is gonna be expanding. Not like we're already packed in like sardines or anything 😂😂

    To be honest it has nothing to do with the national average. It's all based on the scores of those who apply to Newcastle...if everyone who applies has 800+ then the cut off will be 800+ even if the national average is 500. Obviously that's a hugely exaggerated number but you see my point.

    Just chill out and make your own decisions; don't listen to fear mongering and speculation and remember that most people on here who are willing to post their score have a high one. It's all in the lap of the gods really 🙂
    Think they were talking about the average of the pple applying to newcastle

    Could I apply here with 683 UKCAT band 1
    I'd say it's worth a shot, you could put it down as your "risk choice"

    What does sat in one sitting mean? Does it mean no re-sits or at the end of year 13. I did my maths A-level in year 12 so don't know if I should apply.

    I'd imagine you have to complete all the necessary a levels in two years, no resitting A2.

    Email them, or ring up...

    I think it's both, so they would want you to do 3 A Levels at the end of year 13 on to it the maths a level you did.
    I may not be correct, though

    Jeremy Hunt needs to go!

    He's after you and wants a show

    to dishearten everyone in his control

    and make us doctors cry and fall

    until we give in and give him his private goal!

    When I say 'us doctors', I mean to be of course
