    I applied to Sheffield both for Medicine and Medical Microbiology (which I don't intend to accept although I got an interview for it today). I hoped it would show I really want to go to Sheffield but I'm starting to think they might say I'm not committed enough to Medicine. Just wondered what you guys thought, if it will have any effect etc.? My ukcat is 745 and if I've been informed correctly and they interview in descending order I think I've already been rejected in effect :/

    No it shouldn't have any effect. Although the university would know that you applied for 2 separate courses, both are related to medicine. Just be prepared during the interview to explain why you applied for Medical Microbiology as well.

    It is quite a struggle keeping on top of everything :zomg:

    1) Make a really detailed revision timetable and keep to it.
    2) Keep an interview/ethics book with you at all times so you can have a quick read of it when you're not doing anything constructive (i.e. during short breaks at school/college when you don't have time to start proper schoolwork).
    3) Combine your homework with revision - you can often cross-link the questions so you're killing two birds with one stone.
    4) ALT-F4!

    I'm not really ahead with anything, just about staying afloat - but that's my advice. Hope it helps in some way, shape or form.

    Help?

    I know in my interview I have to talk about my work exp, but because I did six different things I'm finding when I talk I sound all over the place. How can I structure it whilst still reflecting on it properly and bringing in key skills like teamwork and communication? :confused:
