    Not that I'm aware of, although some colleges require you to e-mail them 3 topics of interest in the field of medicine; should one qualify for interview that is. Got this info from a tour of the university from my friend

    You deferring then? My friend was looking this up for me and apparently it's harder to get offers if you defer. :puppyeyes:

    Okay thanks! I thought it would be hard otherwise - the last essay I did was for my english GCSE! Also just remembered, I guess they have the BMAT for the essay...

    Well, I'm gonna double check at my chosen unis about their gap year policies. Then make a choice to either apply for deferred or apply for 2012 then 'suddenly change' after hopefully receiving an offer

    I've looked at the websites, some say they even encourage it (provided it's well spent) but it might be an unofficial thing just because the calculations for 2013 entry would be so much harder to make.
