    Ohhhhh, now I get it, I don't even care about football so it doesn't bother me but I do know you instantly become extremely unpopular if you even think about supporting Liverpool.

    Well, yeah but I think you could totally get 4 interviews if you've applied to safe unis - I hope you do!! Haha, me too! (But Liverpool would be the absolute dream)
    Aww thanks!! I hope so too! And same for you, you've defo worked really hard for this.

    Hmm, I'll probably find it incredibly boring then, with books, after a couple of pages I'm out :lol:
    That's awesome!! It's pretty good that you've already had the practice and haha, if we only we could have unlimited free courses. I'm assuming you're not going on a paid course?

    Oh yeah, football completely goes over my head. I do, however understand the offside rule now!

    Thank you! I'm sure Liverpool will want you, also!
    We all have :yep: But I like think some of us have worked harder than others (AKA us )

    Ooh, really? I love to read! That said, I don't much...
    I think my head of sixth form is planning more, which is good, but she's a bit hopeless so you never know :lol:
    No paid courses for me! What about you?

    I handed in my ucas on 13th of Oct, I think.... maybe 12th
    My interview was on Jan 6th but I changed to Dec 7th (the day after my birthday!) due to internal mock exam in school.
    I hope I get interviews from Kings and Bristol

    I think it's because of the football teams, it's a bit silly in my opinion, but oh well (woo, Manchester)

    Well, I think they're as safe as you could get for medicine, so there's still that risk. I would be so happy at any of my choices, though, so as long as I get one offer, I'm fine!
    I'm sure you'll get more interviews, though! You're totally worth it! :yep:

    It was interesting, I think it could be a bit confusing at times, but it's only cheap, so I think it's worth getting, if only for an interesting read!
    That's so good! My school brought some Doctors and other healthcare professionals in for an MMI practice, which was good, although I could definitely do with another one!
    Basically the same as you, really.

    Good luck to you too!


    Thank you so much! :dancing:
    I'm glad I've helped! Honestly, this forum did so much to help me, it's just the least I could do! :yep:
    Thank you, I'm sure you'll be getting loads of interviews soon



    It should definitely be by the end of this week
    But yeah, Wednesday is manageable. If it is Wednesday, and I get invited to interview, I would be so happy, though. I'm going to see my favourite band live that night, also, so it would be epic! :lol:

    Yes, I did! :woo:
    Thanks!



    Oh stop it, you're embarrassing me :blush:



    Obvs Manchester is better. By at least 3 miles. At least!

    Thank you so much!
    Hope med school is going well for you currently, also!



    They haven't released it yet and will only do so at the end of the cycle, sorry
    Yeah I imagine around then.

    Manchester is one of my favourite cities in the world!!!

    Home to old trafford and it's such a dynamic city and it has motorways. As a car and football crazy fanatic, that is like my dream driving to Manchester on the M6!!!!!!!!!!

    With C/D at GCSE you won't get into any UK Medical School, almost all require Maths/English/Sciences at grade B or above.

    EDIT: I mean for standard undergraduate entry, i don't know if GEM has the same requirements.

    I'm not even gonna lie cuz it's going to be very difficult as most uni's want at least a b in maths and eng language and oxford def wants a certain number of a*s as do some other uni's and a levels isn't going to be easy so don't underestimate it. I'd say to aim for foundation medicine which is just an extra year but it's mainly for ppl who have studied the wrong subjects (in which case you'd probs be asked to still get AAA) or have mitigating circumstances like living in a poor area or having low family income etc. (Do some research on these uni's). There's also the option to go through graduate entry but it is known for being more expensive as well as more competitive.

    So basically it's not going to be easy but i wish u gd luck

    THANKS!!!

    Haha, that's great to hear! I don't even know what an offside rule is lol.

    We'll have to wait and see! (Literally, their first interview dates aren't until end of January)

    AND we've used our common sense and applied to safe unis. I met a girl the same age as me while volunteering and she got a UKCAT score of 1700 and applied to Newcastle and Manchester! :eek: like I'm not judging or anything but when I asked her if she met the cutoff score she was like "no, but I thought I might as well apply there" and she applied to 2 BMAT unis so she hasn't got anywhere that's safe.

    I used to love reading when I was younger l used to read like 11 books in a week haha. Now I can't finish a book, unless it REALLY grabs my attention. But yeah same, I don't read much anymore.
    Haha! Is your school subsidising the cost then or are they getting it for free? And me neither! I've already spent so much money on UKCAT, BMAT and UCAS as well as other resources I don't see much point in throwing more money away.

    Oooh, I wish! Cardiff and Leicester were my 2 safe unis - Lancaster uses the BMAT so they can't even do anything until end of November and Liverpool is personal statement heavy so both are risky but I'm happy with 2 interviews
