    Hey, congrats on your offer at St Andrews. That's where I want to go too. Hopefully we'll be colleagues next year.

    As a Romanian, do you need predicted grades? Or do you just send your current year averages (mediile)?
    you need predicted grades on BAC and afterwards they'll emailing you asking for a School Transcript (foaia matricola). They'll take a look at your biology grades, as Chemistry and Maths have predicted grades on BAC.

    I know what you mean, although if it was more interesting, it might make it harder. what do you think?
    But atm it doesn't even feel like proper science, I much prefer the interesting things which require understanding rather than the stupid 'learn these ridiculous facts' type of spec. :sad: haha and I had a look at the A2 course for Bio yesterday, Unit 4 seems so awful

    Same. I can properly revise for my exams, now my biology and chemistry coursework is (nearly) out the way.

    First things to revise for? Biology and disease for biology, Totalitarian ideology for history and Women in Athens and Rome for Classical Civilisation.

    Just out of interest, how do most of you go about applying for work experience? E.g. phone/letter/email etc.

    A lot of the biggest hospitals have actual work experience application forms-
    I sent two e-mails to different hospitals (one replied saying they were full, the other didn't reply at all), and sent out one application form (and i was offered a week work experience)
    kind'a excited for it

    Both emails and phone calls. Most of them email replies I got were literally the same attachment about work experience information :facepalm:
