    Well, I'm being realistic as I know how competitive Medicine is, so although I love Bristol I'm not sure if I'll apply there as they do seem to be very selective. My line up will probably look something like this:

    Bristol (Maybe, not sure )
    Southampton
    BSMS / maybe Barts?
    KCL,
    I've been on open days to all these last year when I was thinking of doing something else, so I've yet to look at the proportion of PBL they have etc but I just liked these places in general
    What about you?
    Yes I know same, I was considering Oxbridge until I finally decided medicine.

    Nottingham
    Newcastle
    Birmingham
    Sheffield

    I may change though.

    Ahem. Hello....big country north of Newcastle....

    No fees for Scottish students here, only living costs. And anyone from England, Wales, Northern Ireland gets charged around £1800 pa.
    Ooops, I meant in England.

    But after 4 years of studying, the NHS tuition fees bursary kicks in, so we save £9,000 or £18,000 depending on if you intercalate or not

    (Because I think the student loan company only give out student loans for 4 years, so the NHS pays the rest)
    Oh really? Sounds good

    Chem question

    When an alkene has more than 1 double bond, do you put a di before the ene?

    CH2=C=CH2

    So would this be propene, or propdiene

    CH3CH2CH=CHCH2CH=CH2


    Would this be Hept-1,4- diene

    or

    Hept-1,4-ene

    Only £1800 pa for tuition fees for unis in Scotland? :eek:
    Then why isnt everyone from England charging to Scotland to escape the tuition fee rise? :confused:

    They do/are/will be. Most are put off by the distance and there is a far larger selection of unis south of the border

    1. Prop-1,2-diene.

    2. Hept-1,4-diene.

    If there is more than 1 double bond, it is not an alkene, as an alkene only has 1 double bond, general formula = CnH2n.

    Oh righty-ho...
    So is there going to be a big rise in applicants to Scottish unis??
    I was considering Edinburgh, but I think theres already a huge applicant : places ratio... so if its going to rise even more I might be scared off..!

    Well I think everyone is expecting that. It will vary between courses.

    Which is why you should come to Aberdeen

    Yes i'm still debating it tbh.. I don't want to regret it one way or the other. Also, I've seen on some succesful applicants profiles this year, some only have 4 A*s at GCSE for Medicine, which surprised me. (Though then maybe that means they did very well in the BMAT... )

    Does anyone doing AQA Biology use any websites for revision? I have a text book and class notes, but I want something different to read from? I find with AQA biology you need a broader range of knowledge :/

    Well since 80% of people get rejected, I doubt there are many people out there studying medicine 'regretting' that they didn't choose Oxford.

    For Oxford??

    I thought they love the GCSEs, but Cambridge love the BMAT (and 90%+ UMS scores of course :rolleyes:)
