    No but if GEM works out, it'll take me 7years, 3years Beng, 4years GEM. Unless you don't intercalate which i intended to do it's only going to take me a year longer
    Aha, sounds like a plan :holmes:

    GEM is a ***** though but you can do it!! :fuhrer:

    Ha crap sorry, was meant to type this:

    So sorry to hear that :console: the fools don't know what they've missed, but a gap year is a really good experience i think, no matter the outcome or how dull, with your grades, increasing fee (means competition will drop) and with you being awesome you're gonna come out with 4 straight offers

    And to get into a Uni I have to take A levels in three subjects, right ? Does it matter what the third subject is, if I choose the first two Chemistry and Biology ? And one last question: are they difficult ? Anyone ? (I posted it before, but no one answered, sadly )

    I'm not entirely sure about any of those questions i'm afraid since i'm in the Scottish system however I believe that 3 A levels are normally expected from medicine applicants applying for medicine. As for the third subject I think it varies between Unis. If A levels are anything like Highers and AHs, i'd say they're challenging but not too difficult if you put in the effort.

    Is anyone else feeling more down as the days go on after hearing the news about 4 rejections? It just seems to me like my plans have been altered, and I now have to take a year out while seeing everyone go to uni. Blah.

    It might sound a bit silly but in some ways I'm glad I'm taking a gap year, I really need to grow up before I apply, everything was too daunting.

    Well, I've found a job I might apply for - don't reckon I'll get it if I'm honest, but I can send out as many applications as i want so I might as well try

    Last year, my scores were about 780, 730, 690 and 480. So tbh, just aiming to improve that abstract reasoning score. If that one had been better, I would have got a MUCH higher average :/

    I know Leicester does a scoring system, which I'll get full marks in my academics, and if I do better in my UKCAT, I shouldn't do too badly in that section either. Apparently Cardiff is the same? I know my academics is the best part of my application, although hopefully I'll be able to improve my personal statement as well.

    assuming you have decent experience then? If not HCA seems to help (better in hospital), uni's who purely use cut offs once you have the basic requirements like Glasgow Manchester Durham Newcastle and barts i think. My friend had full mark with leicester (academically) and didn't get an interview, think they use your lowest score as well but those are great marks

    Yes - English applicants would take 3 A levels and I don't think it matters what your 3rd subject is after Chemistry and Biology. If you look around on here there are details of what each university requires and also applicant profiles so you can see who has what. You pretty much have to get 3 grade As too.

    You'll also need to take the Ukcat test. But as you're an EU applicant I think the best thong before you embark on all this (they are difficult it seems - especially Chemistry) is to email rhe admissions tutors of universities to check what they would need from you.

    Thanks a lot for the info I already informed myself about the unis I would like to go to and they don't put much emphasis on the third subject, as long as I get an A I'm thinking of buying some prep books, because although we study Biology/Chemistry at a pretty high level back here, I want to be more familiar with the demands Do you know any good prep books, because I found some on Amazon, but I don't know which one would be better :confused: Thanks

    Sorry - someone else will have to answer that as I'm the mother of an applicant, and I dropped Chemistry aged 14! I'll ask my daughter though.
