    Lacaster, Liverpool, Southampton, UEA, BSMS and Peninsula all accept resit applicants.
    I thought they only accept resits if you have any particular circumstances?

    Nope :P The others are the ones that accept resit applicants if you have extenuating circumstances.

    asked this in the ps thread but thought i'd ask here too.

    should i mention in my ps that i am now looking for a job related for medicine?
    i already have a paragraph about volunteering abroad so i don't know if its worth saying this too to give an idea of how im gonna spend the rest of my year.

    It wouldn't hurt to mention it. Presumably it would only take up a sentence or two and it is good to tell the reader what your plans are for the rest of the year if you have any

    Ahh thats good news Which subjects are you resitting? We're all willing to help with revision I'm sure

    About your job - you won't be at a disadvantage. What matters is experience (which you'll have in your work experience) and just getting a job shows social responsibility because you are earning money (to help with university costs) and you'll also just get experience having a full time job, and working as an adult. Lots of things you can talk about about that - it just means you don't get the added bonus of work experience and a job at the same time.
    Resitting biology and maths. I'm sure i'll be fine with revision this time around - but thanks for offering :thumbsup:

    The trouble is im having to resit 5 exams. UEA want you to achieve an A* and an A if you are resitting, so i have to redo all of my A2 maths modules to have a chance of an A* in maths... and you can't resit Biology Unit 5 in january, so i'm having to resit Unit 2 and Unit 4 to make up the marks to an A. £100 in total :eek:

    Just trying to figure out how it came to this :dry:

    Turns out the liver ward wanted me for their HCA so i'm probs working there now, so will be 18.5 hours there and 8.5 hours at la pharmacy which is...27 hours p/w.

    How many hours is everyone else doing?
    I wouldn't do FT because even if i DID get an offer this year i'd have killed myself by december.

    This way i get to go out and get mortal with all my friends and go to teh cinemas and and not be lonely and go for coffee and have a laugh. AH NO WAIT THERE... they're all at uni... mmh well that's awkward.



    all the last pals are leaving saturday, so from then on LOZZAS GAP YAH 2K11/12 WILL HAVE COMMENCED. oioi.

    If I hadn't rated you in the PMS applicants thread I'd do it for this post.
    No UKCAT, No interviews, No nothing.
    You must be buzzing, probably be in the pub If I were you.
    You have like 2 days to party with what remains of your friends about your good news, get out!

    Hi. I am new here. I am an International student. I came to UK in 2010 to study A-level. I applied to medicine and got rejected so I will reapply this year. I just want to ask if I need to fill in the grades of each modules for A2 subjects or just the subject grade.
