    Cool.

    Maybe Oxbridge, not decided, Cambridge will depend on my UMS. Newcastle and Kinds dependant on the UKCAT, then Nottingham and maybe Leeds. It's so hard to pick, especially as PBL crossed a few potentials off the list.

    UKCAT is going okaay.. didn't do any today either but have done quite a bit of the 600 Q book, still have a month ish though. I've done a rough PS but finding the first para so hard to phrase!

    Oh right fair enough, and is that an average of 90 UMS over the AS subjects? And will apply if UMS are fine

    Haha yeah Why didn't you book it early Sep?

    I get what you're saying, is it that long or what?

    It's about a month away - yours?

    Hmm.. not really, it will depend on my UKCAT. High score I'm thinking Kings and Newcastle, maybe Sheffield.. Otherwise Leeds and Nottingham. You?

    I don't know - do they accept an average, or do you need ideally 90 in all? What's "fine" UMS for you?

    Because I'll just have got back from holiday, so don't want to spend all the time on holiday revising, lol. Plus I'll finally be able to relax on holiday for the first time all summer! (Well except results day, haha).

    No not that long, just hard to structure, not sure how much to write on each point etc. :P

    Ain't booked it yet, family is on holiday, living home alone and I am skint. My dad comes back in a couple of days so I will ask him for some money because at the moment all the money I have is for food and emergencies like if I accidently burn the house down (which I nearly did).

    Same I would add Liverpool to the doing **** in UKCAT list.

    Also what is your GCSEs if you don't mind me asking?

    Ah okay, haha.

    I don't want Liverpool though, as it's PBL. :/

    8 A*, 2 A's - how about you?

    I think I read somewhere that PBL students learn less than traditional learning students whilst at university but then after university the PBL learn more.

    I got 1.5 A*, 5 A, 3 B.

    Pretty crap compared to other med students. I'm worried that, my GCSEs will let me down.

    Hmm maybe that's true. I think I'd prefer to learn more at uni though - surely that's what it's for, so then afterwards I can focus on applying the knowledge.

    It's not bad though, they meet the requirements of pretty much all medical unis.

    Oh, I know :P I just feel like I should have started if everyone else has :B

    My UKCAT also seems to be rather late compared to other people - 31st August.
    That said, in my school, I'm the only 2012 Med applicant to have booked it. Maybe I'm not so behind.

    Psssh I'm sure you can make up for those "crap" GCSEs with A-levels etc.

    I want everyone on here to get in (including me!) so we can all talk about stuff and have "2012 Medic" in our sig.s... I mean so we can start helping people....
