    Seems to be a lot of lazy, procrastinators applying for Medicine! (myself included)

    I think my interview answer is that I put too much pressure on myself to exceed and I'm highly competitive (mostly with myself!). This could be considered a weakness but I think it's also strength because I thrive under pressure and perform my best when challenged...This is actually true. For example if I have one deadline at uni with 3 weeks to do it and I happen to get it done early (rare occurence) I will get a lower grade than if I procrastinate and have 5 pieces of work and 1 week to the deadline!

    Violent pornography. But I wouldn't mention that in too much detail, just slip in it, like in a list effect. See if they're REALLY listening.

    I'm very slow at learning maths. Mainly maths only though, everything else I'm fine. I always seem to get something wrong in maths at first unlike most people in my classes; but i always seem to be one of the only people who scrapes an A*. Its confusing, they all seem to know it in class then when we do mocks everyone gets B/C and occaisionally D but i would get an A.

    In conclusion, maths a level for me is going to piss me off. But so many uni courses require it so I guess I have to.
    What? You do not have to do maths for medicine, anywhere. Don't put yourself through it if you're going to find it hard to pick up and annoying - it's very different from GCSE

    My greatest weakness is that I'm REALLY self-critical, and have a really low opinion of myself. Do you think thats something that shouldn't be mentioned if they ask this question?

    It invites the thought, if this chap doesn't think he's any good why should I?

    For geography at top unis it is recommended, and required at cambridge. Geography is the subject I want to study at the moment. I did exaggerate though, most of its fine, just at the moment I'm not understanding much. Its the bloody factorising stuff (most people on here would probably laugh at that, considering how easy some TSRians find that kind of stuff) that pisses me off at the moment, I'm not really good at guessing like that.

    Also, I don't want to study medicine. How much harder is A level maths than GCSE?

    This is the medicine forum, hence lekky's comment about maths not being needed for medicine.

    Well I can now factorise in my sleep, it's pretty much a basic skill you need. GCSE stuff just becomes basic skills you can't even question to tackle harder things. For me the transition was quite easy but I was always naturally good at picking things up fast. It's a lot harder I'd say.
