    What I understand of it is that they want at least 15 points from your GCSE scores... so they take your top 9 GCSEs including english language, maths and science(s) and award 2 points for an A*/A and 1 point for a B. You need to be predicted AAB or AAA or something, I'm not sure tbh. And they look at your PS:

    Well if you have 5 A*s and 4 As it's ok, as they are ranked the same and use the top 9

    they probably discount bull**** GCSEs though

    It probably depends what your Bs are. As I said, they take 9 GCSEs, A*/A=2 points, B=1.

    Sorry, then, my bad.

    My most ideal uni would be Liverpool tbh! I'd also love to go to Manc or Glasgow, but they have pretty high UKCAT cut offs. I just want to live in a big city and go to a PBL uni. What about you?

    Tbh, that sounds perfect for Liverpool... it would get you full marks on the GCSE section, I think.

    I went to my careers adviser and college, sat with her for an hour while she rang all the GPs in my town and got a call back from one who arranged a week for me.

    Incidentally, I quit after the first 2 days

    well from a young age ive always been in love with imperial, but back then i was young and i was only in love with it because if the look the power the name and the thought of saying to someone "i go to imperial" lol. As i got older i went there and actually feel in love with it, like i felt at home. Then i checked the course and fell in lov with that too. Then i checked the entrace test and saw....BMAT. I heard we have to apply before we get our BMAT scores so i dunno if i want to risk it. My other ideal uni would be HYMS, Sheffield, Nottingham, Kings, UEA, St georges, basically a lot of places lol i cant decide. I really like intercalated (traditional mixed with PBL) but i also really like PBL and wouldnt mind too much in the end as long as i get an offer lol but im so scared!

    You?

    I know what you mean, are you doing the real one and what topic is it? brings back memories this does
    It's real, and the topic is the coagulation of milk- only vaguely related to enzymes. It's those random as **** questions that get me, the ones you cannot revise or prepare for, no matter what you do.
