    They really do, but to be fair we did have to balance like 10 subjects. :eek: I don't know how we managed. :p:

    It'll be fine though! Apparently unit 4 is the hardest/the one people do worst at. So onwards and upwards after Jan.
    I still don't know how we did either :eek:

    I'm doing unit 4 in Jan (AQA is what I assume you do as well) so from next week I'm starting serious work on it Apparently unit 5 is hard because of the 25 mark question, which can be on anything we've done though unit 1-5 :eek:

    With CCEA we also have to learn some policies of our department of agriculture etc. At least we have the good stuff to come.
    ohh with OCR we did that for AS, kinda it sucks but some of them are quite simple to remember and if you can properly draw them out/make up all kinds of shizz, you can get some decent marks

    im quite worried now that i see the majority of kings applicants on here have both higher gcse's and a higher ukcat than me here's me thinking my ukcat would make up for my gcse's!
    Don't worry too much about it, people on here are generally better than the average applicant. I thought the same about the people on the stalking page having better UKCAT scores than me, and I'm quite average on the tables. Then I looked at the previous year's stats and probably about 70-80% of the people on there got an interview.

    No need to compare yourself to others on here

    Why, what did you get? I'm sure that once King's gets the UKCAT scores, all of us who didn't make the GCSE cut will start getting interviews

    Yeah, insects are just icky. You should totally get your Bio teacher to get a class pet turtle! That would liven up Bio lessons.

    Haha, I think I've got a major case of Stockholm's with the Biology syllabus in general. I bet one thing we'll agree on was that the immune system was really interesting! Oh, unit 1. It sucks how they had the most interesting stuff in unit 1 (at least for AQA) when we're dealing with the GCSE -> AS step up so we don't enjoy it (when I say "we", I mean "I", the first half of year 12 was horrendous lol).

    It's not weird at all, otherwise we wouldn't all be applying for med degrees! We do it in the next unit along with things like homeostasis and nerve signals, I'm buzzing. :p:

    Awww, bless you, you seem like you've worked really hard for it, I hope you get a place. I hope we all get a place. They should open a medical school for everyone on this thread because we're clearly mint :awesome:

    That sucks! Sods law, as soon as you get a break, you get ill. You feeling better?

    Mine was good, I spent a couple of days at the library trying to catch up with work () but the rest of it was nice and relaxing... I went bowling with my sisters (who are 5 and 10), I literally did my best but both my sisters beat me. The five year old came first... in both games. Lol.

    I think it's just half term(s) in general. I'm not even at college and haven't started work yet (so basically a lay about ), but as soon as it hit half term, I'm ill :/ Damn you half term!

    Sorry, I just realised that I never actually replied to you when I quoted you, whoops Hope you feel better soon TBH though, you've got good results with being ill you know you'll do even better when you're better which isn't too shabby

    I meant to say that Normandy is probably right, people are probably above average on here and only a small percent of those who actually apply. I went to a college with like 1,000 in our year so loads of med/vet/dentistry applicants and very very few were on tsr. (And tbh, theres gonna be at least one person on here who's telling a few white lies about their grades - not that there would really be any point :P )

    And anyways, it's not all about the academics you're personality will come out in interview which may put you ahead of some

    can anybody reccomend me a good book on medical ethics?

    i'm currently reading 'a very short introduction to: medical ethics' by tony hope, and im finding it really interesting the way people approach ethical issues. i'd be interested to read somebody else's approach to these issues because morals/ethics is quite a personal thing
