    Awh that's great! I would love some warm weather, when I went to Kavos for a week I was always too gurgly and hungover to even know it was day time never mind appreciate warmth and sunniness Plus i only came back a teeny bit more brown and now i'm back to white... just how i like it :sexface:

    Oh no you're working full time?! Awh man that's crazy, since i've got that job i told them i'd work PT + my 8.5 hours at the pharmacy so i know for a fact that addding the two jobs ill end up working full time hours :/ do you get taxed nuch?

    I'm gna start editing now... really dont want to though 'cus i like a lot of my stuff that i had originally written :| But i'm just grateful i've already got the core PS done rather than starting from scratch like last year D:

    Yeah chemistry can be such a *****, it was the one i was most worried about being A or B on because the exams are just so **** :/
    Congrats on the jobby btw xxx Beware it is a grind but also a valuable learning experience and you will meet lots of great folk both patients and people in the multidisiplinary team.

    Not sure about tax, havn't started that long ago and it's monthly paid. Worked (including shift in few hours) last 9 out of 10 days, cannae be arsed!

    Hey guys, was just wondering if anyone here is starting biomedicine or pharmacy or another related course, but re-applying to medicine too? If so, how would you go about writing your personal statement? You'd need to explain why you chose to start another degree as opposed to taking a gap year right? Would be grateful for any advice, thanks

    [SIZE="4"]WARNING: THIS WILL BE A LONG POST (seriously i may have broken the record, some of you may hate me for all the the **** you wil have to cut through just to quote me.. but meh)[/SIZE]

    I'm sure we'll help you all we can.
    I only missed hte A* in chem because of the last exam, you should go for it, take as many sittings for both modules as the'll let you.
    If they're saying you can retake as many modules as you like in one A level then just go for it. That'l make you stress less in jan too because you know you can just resit, then you'll have some kind of A* zen stuff.
    just sitting in the exam hall after beasting the paper in 10 minutes meditating or something, or redraffting your ps in your mind :P, that's what I did at the end of my BY5 :/

    (Original post by areyousure?)
    Yeah so I will go for PCMD, not a big Soton fan :P

    Just check manchester policies and they have changed it so I emailed them again... like 10th time this week ! Now they want A*AA and they said they only consider re sit applicant in exceptional circumstances! Have no idea what that means! but I still want to apply

    Going for Liverpool for sure! Need to decide between BSMS and Lancaster unless Manchester says that I have no chances.

    They should understant getting a place at medical school as a resit applicant is already difficult enough for them to confuse us with policies!
    Wouldn't it be awesome if FSKG, You and I all got PCMD interviews on the same day.

    Tbf if anyone on here is applying to the same uni and they get same day interviews, they should meet up post interview and sample the night life?

    Legend.
    About your tax query I get taxed monthly.
    I'm at the bottom of band 2 and for my first month was on emergency tax (code started with OT)
    Get them to change it as soon as possible. For my first 3 weeks pay packet I got 606 after tax.
    Because they changed my tax code for the second pay packet I ended up paying minus tax (rebate) and got like 1200 overall.
    It was a good day.
    Your first payslip is a good feeling too, It's all NHS'y.

    The pension you also have to "opt out" of and i think also union payments.
    I'm gonna pay them after medschool but right now I need the beer money for uni

    But seriously though well done about your job.
    Your ps will be boss now.

    If you can pass the test . . . .

    FizzingWhizbee's sounded awesome in harry potter, One night when the book came out at midnight they had a little jar of "fizzing whizbee's" in the bookshop.
    one of the best nights of my 11 year old life so sure, hop on in.

    Definitely.


    Also, think I may have decided to definitely apply to Peninsula as well Don't know what made me decide it, but I've been looking for ages, and considering it. Thought I should probably just make up my mind, so there we go.

    Applying for Leicester, Sheffield and Peninsula definitely. Anyone got any ideas where else I could apply? I can't narrow it down at all...

    Do UCL have any quirks in their admissions protocol? Such as Barts' (previous) UKCAT 700+, Birmingham and Cardiff's GCSEs etc.

    I don't know how manchester select for interview, as of this year barts do it using a UKCAT cut off and UCAS tariff to select for interview and give offers solely on interview performance from there.

    I don't know how it'd rate for Manchester tbh.
    Check the applicants thread and wiki's ?

    I prefer a weak nt to a strong nt even though both are limiting bids and you cant really say much afterwards.
    but yeah, I play. lol.
