    Would an Armani watch be too flashy? I bought two of them in the Summer (Dad said they would look nice) but now I am thinking it may be over the top a wee bit.

    Tbh, that's the only questions I have about what to wear to interview. You girls really do obsess over fashion!!!
    Naaaa go for it and why do you have so many accounts

    You meet the requirements it seems for southampton but fall short on nottingham for GCSE grades.
    There is always Plymouth but obviously relying on one uni leans towards a very low chance of getting in. To the OP if you have the criteria for widening access then you may as well try for medicine if that's what you really want to do, and have your 5th as pharmacy. Just try and find out online how competitive it is and most importantly what entry requirements they want.

    You can always figure it out when you get an interview lol. Aww, that's a shame. But are you from Scotland? Just asking cuz you've applied to only Scottish unis and I was gonna apply to Glasgow but my UKCAT wasn't good enough

    Yes exactly lmao

    Yeah, Inshallah it goes well for you. x

    Yes, I'm from Scotland and my UKCAT isn't great but I like the uni too much. Plus I'm not hesitant about taking a gap year - if I don't get in first time.

    Ah right. That's really good of you though! Not many girls have the confidence to pull off something like that so nice one tbh.
    Plus it means I probably am more anxious about my hair as a guy than you are as a girl!!! XD




    Hahahaha niceeee
    Haha, don't worry I'm sure your hair will look great lol.

    And why thank you that means a lot.

    Bruh, are you a millionaire or something?? Lol the other day you were like your parents are going to be you an Audi and you've got not one, but two flipping Armani watches!!!

    And I don't know, it really depends, I think it depends on the interviewers and how they take it tbh. Wear something that's you but not too casual. So if an Armani watch resonates with you then do it, but if you're not sure I'd patch it.

    And bro, I really don't like come one, I can't afford clothes from any high end shops like Topshop or something, so I was really splashing out with that blazer that cost me £18 from Matalan XD - bloody hell! It's not even got sleeves, but it is nice tho - I think it's the best piece of clothing I own tbh. XD



    Note: after posting this I googled armani watches and I think it'd be okay and not too flashy XD

    Insh Allah same for you.

    Ahh I get you, I really liked the uni as well but it wasn't worth the risk cuz I'm already apply to 2 risky unis. Me neither, but I'm still gonna try this year, what will you do in your gap year if you take one?

    I was thinking of getting the Ronaldo kind of haircuty style (really wanting this) but my mum thinks the interviewers will judge me as a junkie :/
    Would this be a bad idea? I can't get it too short anyway because I will get suspended from school so it wouldn't be extremely short.

    Ahahaahahahhaha nooooooooooooooooooooooo. But I do appreciate how much my parents do for me

    I think I could pull it off tbh. With my type of swag, the watches would look like nothing ahahaha

    I'm sure you could afford clothes that you want! Ask your parents, I am sure if it's for looking presentable at an interview then they would be more than happy.


    Thanks for the advice btw

    Really? Most girls that I know who don't wear just don't want to wear it tbh, I've seen many girls at my college start wearing the hijab and others who stop wearing it, but I do see what you mean because a lot of them just want to fit in.
    And haha, dw, I stress about the fact that the point on my scarf isn't perfect XD

    Are you in college and applying to UG Medicine?
    Yeah that's what I mean.
    (Original post by nomophobia)
    Idk, depends on colour, size and whether you genuinely think it's too flashy - if you're leaning more towards the side of it being too flashy, it probably is. But also, wear it if you want to because interviewers aren't gonna look at your watch and be like "show off" haha.

    Haha, of course we do, i'd feel weird not stressing about what to wear haha

    I guess that;s true.

    No offense, do what you like, but I'd agree with your mum looool. I'm sure they don't mind your haircut as long as it's tidy tbh. Your school is extra if they'll suspend over something like that, smh.

    Tbh it's not a matter of affording, I'm sure if I asked I'd get what I want, I just don't like asking my parents for loads of things but that's just me lol. ANYWAY that's a different topic.



    LOOOOOL YOUR SWAG ALRIGHT LMAo

    Sorry just have to make sure your head doesn't swell into a balloon. And no worries.

    Won't be applying until 2018 but was wondering on peoples opinions as to my chances of getting in to somewhere like Kings

    Levels 3 Acces HE in Nursing D36 M9 (Predicted)
    Level 3 Access HE in Medicine/Dentistry (yet to start)
    Level 1 Qualification in BSL (British Sign Language)
    UKCAT Band 1
    GAMSAT (not yet taken but will be attained)
    GCSE Maths B
    GCSE English C
    Voluntary work within Maternity Ward 3 Months / 3 Months A&E (currently)

    I'm a mature student (will be 25 upon 2018 entry) and currently doing everything I can to be able to study medicine and further my knowledge in preparation for university. Are there any suggestions as to what else I could be doing?

    If I did the IBDP and I have a good UKCAT score (2110) -> avg 703. If I just meet the admission requirement for IB score or miss it by 1 point will they consider me? o.o I couldn't perform to my max potential due to a mitigational circumstance (I underwent a surgery which cost me 2 months of classes)

    Sorry I don't know anything about applying to medicine as a mature student, but if you're applying in 2018 you won't have ukcat band 1 (well at the moment). You'll have to resit the ukcat in the same year as you apply.

    Thanks for taking the time to reply. I obtained my UKCAT at the beginning of this year but my application route changed and therefore will be resitting when I come around to uni, Im hoping for the same result hence why ive kept it in there.

    I'm sorry I'm not familiar with your academic system. You'll have to contact the uni and ask or maybe someone on here might know!

    And even if it doesn't work out, it's for a reason.

    Really? Is it quite difficult to apply to your strengths if you're only choosing Scottish unis?

    Probably work as a Health care Assistant in the hospital I haven't really thought about much else, but I have no idea what I'm gonna do if I end up with AAB on results day? Do you?

    Yes, everything happens for a reason. x

    Yeah, I kind of had to choose Scottish unis because I don't think I'd be allowed to go that far away tbqh. Plus Higher education is free for me so that's super convenient.
    Im aiming for AAA in my advanced highers but if i flop them then im going to try graduate entry into med. And if i keep failing after like 4/5 attempts I'd probably go into psychology, optometry or pharmacy, wby?
