    Worth looking into 'non-essential' surgery after the news of the boom in cosmetic procedures e.g. should the NHS fund non-essential surgery.

    I've had all my interviews now - such a relief to be able to forget about the intricacies of medical ethics and to take an eye off the BBC Health page!

    Do you think saying nurses to 'what profession inspired you from the mdt' is an answer that warrants straight fail?

    For some reason I didn't want to say docs because I felt they'd feel like in just sucking up lol

    They did ask why not nurse next and I feel I gave a decent answer

    You are applying to study medicine not nursing so it's not surprising that you were inspired by the doctors at the MDT meeting. However it's also important you appreciate that nurses are very valuable to the team.

    Yeh I agree, just thought it would be blindingly obvious that I was inspired by doctors and wanted to say something diff from other 800 odd applicants, hopefully the point I was trying to make was understood

    I don't think you can prepare for the data interpretation really, its about maths skills GCSE level.

    General studies won't matter. All they want is 3a's and some schools a b/a at as. So if you have a in bio chem maths and a in say physivs at as, and then your general studies d it won't matter.

    Read the note on the website. It's been stopped because they ended up copy/pasting and linking to other websites for most of their articles. No original content-> website not of interest.

    Yea thanks for that but I think bbc was really imp. Coz they used to simplify things so used to be a good way to start reading up on a topic... Sad to see it go
