    I've got myself a job, and am in the middle of signing up for a BSL course. But apart from that, visiting my friends at all their different universities, maybe a bit of travelling, and carrying on my bits of voluntary work I'm just trying to find lots to occupy myself!
    BSL sounds good! Just a few days ago I was thinking of learning Mandarin lol. Maybe I will ... I knoww, I reallllllllly don't want to be bored and have nothing to do! I'll be searching for a job now, in the next couple of days ...

    You might want to start looking now :erm:

    Get something part time though.. I wouldn't have liked to work full time for a whole year (though the money would have been nice!)

    If you don't TSR hard then I'll have no proof

    I think you're right. Say we send of UCAS apps by about 5th October, then have a few weeks to get over the panic of doing it, and worrying that it could have been better. Then it'll be exciting doing all new things, and visiting friends at their universities... After Christmas, (or even before!) hopefully a few interviews, and all the prep for that. So I'd have though that about Feb-March kind of time is when we'll start to get fed up. Hopefully later, but by then the excitement of doing a gap year will start wearing off...

    Thats why we need to start planning exciting things to do to round off the gap year in the summer

    I had a dream last night, that I got two interview letters through on the same day. It was suchhh a good dream

    So I'd better get back to UKCAT revision....
    Oh i intend to go crazy around this time next year and make up for all the partying/drinking/beaching i should have done this year
    I've already got a two weeks in florida booked next summer and i'm just getting started.. :cool:

    And whata dream! Aww hope it ends up being deja-vu for you. And the rest of us gappers :rolleyes:

    Congrats! That's fantastic, you must be so relieved!
    Nonsense is exactly what the UKCAT is but i should think there's less pressure on you now for this (having said that, you acctually never know and depends on what unis you apply to but it's one less hurdle)

    Right now considering all the Scottish ones, if i get a good enough UKCAT think I will definitely apply to Glasgow (even though its not my first choice) cause I'm trying to be as tactical as I can this year! What about you?
    Hey! Sorry I took such a long time to reply. YES! I am definitely going to be applying to Glasgow (I now have moved to Edinburgh and the University of Glasgow is beautiful) but I would not consider all my choices to be Sccottish Universities though as many English applicants will be applying there this year. So, how have you been utilising your spare time? Any plans abroad?

    I know what you mean.
    I'm working full time now (my contracts six months but hopefully they'll give me another 6 after it's up)
    So then I have a month or two of just chilling that i'm gonna love before medschool starts.

    I'm looking forward allready, But if I do get my contract re-newed the money would be a big plus when i'm in Uni.

    I am glad it went well. :cool: . I hope the ukcat practice online questions helped. I am sitting the ukcat in September. I would be grateful if you could private message me some tips on the ukcat if you can. How did you find using the on-screen calculator?

    Really, are you a butler for some really posh family or something. I am sure it pays well.

    Not been up to much. I will be working as a film extra soon in the movie world war z, which stars brad Pitt. So looking forward to that.

    Last I heard they deal with them the same.
    Except the GCSE threshold is lower. (this is from the 2011 entry open day in july 2010 so may have changed)

    Instead of needing 15 points at GCSE from their system they consider applicants with 12-14 points as well.

    I think there's other conditions to it like you have to have done well at A level or maybe it's just having a grades in hand type of thing. In any case you'd need to meet the offer.
