    Yes that happened to me in Edinburgh like I liked it but I can't imagine being 6 years there it was just weird. Well, this time round (if I get any interviews) I will be 18 so I should be sampling the nightlife as well and not only the shopping like last year! :P
    haha fair enough, I didn't even get that last year. I just kind of wandered around the department and then looked at the accom.
    I did actually pop around liverpool with a few people I know, And went round leeds for a look.
    Cardiff I was staying with relatives so I ended up in the millenium stadium watching some motorbike racing. :P

    Nice city,
    Good nightlife,
    Nice medschool.
    Not really my thing though, It just didn't feel right.
    And a load of people from my end end up going to liverpool, It being the capitol of North Wales after all.
    The open day however put me off, well the medschool admissions talk by the admin tutor in all honesty.

    Lovely place though.

    My whole application is sorted and ready, Ps and all, now all I got to do is pay and send so the tutor from college can sort out my reference.
    I'm still sure there's something i've missed, I just want to send it but I can't lol.

    Where are you applying?

    It's only going to my referee I'm not applying as a stand alone applicant, college are letting me apply as a student kinda thing.
    My referee gets my app and she's probably send it back saying my ps isn't strong enough.

    Hi! I'm new here and am reapplying to study medicine!

    Last year I applied to Southampton (BM6), Sheffield, UEA and Keele. I had an interview at Southampton but it went awfully!!!

    I got A*A*A in A-levels and have a UKCAT average of 705 for this year. My GCSE's aren't amazing (see my profile for grades) which has limited me a bit on where I can apply but am thinking Southampton (BM5 this time though) and Newcastle. I am not sure on the other 2 though...I have narrowed it down to Brighton, Kings, Leeds, Manchester, Peninsula and Barts and was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on which 2 of these to choose please??

    As for my application, well I really should start writing my personal statement again but as of yet I haven't had any ideas on what to write!! I am spending next week with the charity Vitalise at one of their respite centres as a volunteer so hopefully after that I will have more inspiration!!

    Check medreq.co.uk to see where you're elligble to apply.



    Also your GCSE's are better than mine, I don't know why you're worrying :P.

    And just to let you know Barts have a new application system this year where they select for interview based on UCAS tariff's which puts you at a disadvantage compared to IB applicants and four A level applicants even with your amazing grades.
    Good luck.

    Good luck sir, we should sample the nightlife in Glasgow if we both get an interview on the same day

    Random query, but if you send your app a decent amount of time before Oct 15th will the universities recieve your UCAS form earlier than most other applicants, or are they all held in some vault and sent at the same time?

    They receive them earlier because you get your acknowledgements earlier usually.
    Whether they actually start pouring through them is another matter entirely.
    They're probably quite busy with the new intake this time of year.

    Some universities process them right away. For example, Birmingham started handing out interviews in October last year.

    Yeah but I wouldn't say that's the majority.
    Some people applied last year on like the 20th and didn't get interviews untill march from my area.
