    What should I ask myrefree to mention in my reference.
    I know he should mention my qualities but I'm asking what is the common stuff to include.I'm a EU applicant and none has applied from my school through ucas so my refree doesn't know how to write.:eek:
    Can anyone be willing to pm me they reference so that my referee can use it as a giudance?
    Any special points to mention?
    guys I need your help.

    Get him to include your qualities, why you will be good for medicine, he should show that you are devoted and hard working so you won't drop out, he should mention any positions of authority you have had, he should mention anything you weren't able to fit into your own statement.

    Search 'UCAS reference for medicine' on google and i'm sure you'll get many results..

    Where did you get Manchester's? Or to be particular is there anymore to it than the section in the application statement:

    In the second stage of the process trained selectors will check the personal statement and reference for:
    • Insight and reflection on a medical career
    • Work experience in a caring role
    • Interests/hobbies and linking these with ability to cope with stress
    • Evidence of teamwork, leadership skills, and communication skills

    Any applications rejected formally after the second screening will have been re-assessed independently by a senior member of the Admissions Team.
