    FWIW I've just viewed it (mod powers, don't worry.. only mods/supermods can see it) and they sound like douchebags atm, if you want to rant privately I'll lend an ear, but don't let them bother you and for the other thing you're a TSR medic applicant.. you'll be more prepared and I have faith that you should do well :yep:

    Now I've tried not to talk too specifically about anything, but so that you realise what I'm on about but if you want any of this post removing let me know and I won't mind :nah:

    I've been there
    thanks, but i dont think they'll start anything even if they read it theyre usually pretty nice people, hence why theyre my friends, i guess its just the stress of medicine applications?

    But then how will you win TSR Medicine awards 'biggest worrier' 2012? :dontknow:
    I think nearly everyone applying to medicine would consider themselves a candidate for that award at some points during the application process until now or will in the future. If you don't think so you're lying!

    It entirely depends on where you've applied. If you've applied to med schools that don't mention a specific AS requirement or the need to have taken at least 4 i don't think it would matter ( don't take this as any type of definite answer!). As many people would recommend, its best to talk to the admissions office of the places you've applied for, find out and hope for the best!

    Some universities don't mind others do. Some require you to have a 4th AS others don't.

    I believe it would harm your application because a lot of med schools ask for a extra AS at grade B (barts and leicester) and peninsula want an extra AS at C or above however I believe manchester do not care (I believe fell free to correct me on this) , I don't know about every med school as I only quoted from the med schools I'm applying to, but is there any reason why you cannot do an extra AS, because it will allow you to apply to more med schools and doing an 4th AS allows you to do a subject for fun or completely away from science that you are interested in

    ye i was thinking to apply to manchester as my first choice anyhow and the requirements did not state that you need a 4th AS, but i would not want to limit the number of universties i can apply for.
    im doing economics at the moment, im just not finding it as interesting as i thought it would be. If this is the case id be happy to stick with it thou thanks

    No worries having re-read your question i answered assuming that you had already applied (silly me) hopefully my answer is still relevant and it's better as you actually have the opportunity to make that decision and apply accordingly.

    N.B. Most universities will want to see that you have undertaken and completed a 4th AS level as it shows them you are more capable of dealing with a larger workload, despite other reasons as to why you may have not completed it. The majority of applicants for medicine will have completed a 4th AS level so unless you apply all to places which don't care at all about a 4th AS level you may be selling yourself short at some places.

    Yeah just stick with it really, I had a substitute teacher all through physics last year that just read out of the book and I really wanted to drop it but in the end it was worth it as 3 out of my 4 uni's wanted a 4th AS, and if the UKCAT doesn't go well and its not high enough for you to apply to manchester at least you would have other schools to apply to, not saying you won't get a good enough UKCAT score

    I just came on, and now I'm curious as to what's going on?
    basically, i had a bit of a moan about some friends of mine, then realised that i was 1) pulling the mood of the thread down, and 2) at risk of being discovered by said friends who could start something about i, and i deleted it.

    but by that time people had replied (not that im complaining about people who replied, they were really lovely ) and my comment was in the quotes.

    so the lovely penguinsaysquack came along and edited the posts so they werent there anymore

    so, you didnt miss much really
