    Do you know the international statistics for liverpool? e.g. no. of applicants last year?
    Nope they don't really release numbers like that. And I don't think it's much harder or easier than for home students

    I was applying individually and had to put it in the referees section, so yeah, if youre applying through your school then your referee shouldve done it

    Thanks a lot. Should I email the admissions department to let them know? I think thats the best I could do in this situation as I can't change ucas now

    Better to email both ucas and the admissions departments. ucas will update your application.

    Hey guys,

    I have had a large number of queries about personal statements and the interview at Liverpool. Although it has not always been possible to reply to every person, I am offering a one-to-one interview skills session over the phone; this will make sure I can talk about your worries/questions individually. I can also do a mock interview over the phone lasting 15-20 mins based on a typical medical school interview.

    I have had years of experience with mock medical school interviews through the TeachFirst organisation; for the small cost of £9.99 I am willing to do an interview skills session via telephone (Including the interview 15-20 mins plus feedback)

    PM me if interested!
    Thanks

    Quick question, it says on the UofL website that A*/A = 2 points and B= 1 point so if i got 10A's would that be no different to getting 10 A*s? Or would they not look at points and check grades? It seems too simple to get as many points as someone who got 10A*s…. Thanks, would appreciate a reply

    10As = 10A*s for the purpose of pre-interview points score.

    But bear in mind they only count your top 9 GCSEs anyway so it's 9, and not 10...

    Hi, was wondering exactly how similar liverpool and Lancasters application process was? Because I received an interview for lancaster but still waiting for Liverpool. Which would be considered more difficult to get an interview at? Thanks.

    The two are in the process of separating and Lancaster therefore becoming an autonomous course. For example, I believe (check it) that Lancaster do MMI interviews now. I'm not sure what other changes there have been but expect more to come, if they haven't already.

    Hi to anybody from this thread who has just finished their 1st year at Liverpool Medical school.

    1) Are there any books you recommend buying? Is there a first year reading list, and if so please could I have it
    2) What topics do we cover in first year?
    3) Is there any equipment we need to buy for 1st year?
    4) Would you recommend brushing up or reading anything before we join, and if so what?
    5) How many files ect would we roughly need?
    6) Is the workload intense? Would I be able to get a Saturday job?
    7) Is chemistry a large part of the course, basically will I struggled with not doing chemistry? Or is the bio chemistry in alevel biology enough?
    8) What was your timetable for your first year?
    9) Are there exams throughout the year or just at the end?
    I know these are a lot of questions and I would be extremely grateful if you could answer them. Any extra tips would be hugely appreciated.Thanks in advance
