    I'm not aware of the rs syllabus, but if it involves as much ethics as it did at GCSE, that could come in handy for medical school interviews as well. From speaking to some F1s, medical ethics seems to be a love of some medical interviewers.
    I'm doing a whole section on medical ethics.
    I picked euthanasia as my topic to write on..50% of the whole AS being medical ethics I think it would be a nice touch to talk about at MY KCL INTERVIEW (hopefully!!!!!!!!!)
    I also do the extended project- will almost definately do it on a medically-related topic..OH YEAHH
    if there's other people on here wanting to go to the KCL open days,tell me which date you book (if i see you I shall say hi ).

    Haha, that's good that you'll be so informed about medical ethics, I know several medical schools give you an example of an ethical dilemma and look for you to evaluate it, so that would come in handy. Any idea what you'll be doing your EP on yet? Mine is on treatment of motor neuron disease and is very interesting at the moment, still have a year to do it!

    I've done 1 week shadowing consultants/registrars/F1s; 1 week as a teaching assistant (not sure if I'll use it - communication skills maybe) and I'm starting volunteering at a charity shop this weekend.

    It's horrifying that everyone is thinking about next years applications already. Last year I was chilling out, there's still months until UCAS opens for 2012.
    That being said, early organisation is very good and I hope you all do fantastically.

    Your GCSEs are better than mine! I didn't know what I wanted to do at GCSE so I didn't revise and came out with 1A* 5As 4Bs and 1C. For UKCAT there are no courses available (that I know of).

    yay

    anything to make the admission's process slightly easier is a good thing. :rolleyes:

    my EP is probably going to be a study of the difference between South Asian and Caucasian diet and lifestyle (I live in Leicester-go figure ) and how it affects health and as a result stress on the NHS.
    should be interesting particularly as its self-inspired.
    I have the worst diet ever yet i do loads of sport..

    am doing biology, chemistry, maths, latin and critical thinking, but dropping the maths and critical thinking after AS

    and im probably going to apply to UCL, kings and imperial... not sure where else yet, seriously need to start booking some open days D:

    bearing in mind i only got 2 A*s at gcse though, due to my situation at the time (im expected to perform much better at AS and A2), what are the chances of the above mentioned universities actually taking a second look at my application? should i be setting my standards lower? any help appreciated, thanks

    There are 3 types. None are better than the other - it's just about how you work best.

    Problem Based Learning (PBL) is where they split you into groups and you pretty much have to find all the information out yourself. However because you're in groups, you're only as good as the worst person in your group.

    Integrated is where it's a mixture of learning styles.

    Traditional is where for the first 3 years you purely to lectures etc, and the next 3 years you do all clinical based. Mostly used in oxbridge.
