    Yes, bham lol

    So are you also reapplicant then?

    I have a job too, at a school for disabled children. I'm only a supply though and noone is ill at the moment, GODDAMMIT!

    I want to save up loaaads of money, because I just want to travel everywhere! I've already got plans to go to an orphanage in south africa for ~3 weeks, but I'm sort of cheating because my aunt 'n' uncle own it, so it's to see my cousins and family combined with volunteering (and hopefully a lot of football )

    I also want to do CampAmerica in the summer, and travel around either Australia or Europe. So im not really doing much that will help my application, but I'd rather enjoy my gap year and make the most of it. (I probably wont be saying that when, no if, let's say IF, I get another 4 rejections)

    My UKCAT was meh, people tell me it's good, but I have gone down from last year 675... Good luck with yours

    What you got planned? (If I'm right in thinking you're a gap yearer too)
    Unfortunately I am a re-applicant too. And when I say "i am a re-applicant" I feel that I am sub-consiously saying "Oh yes! I am a failure, didn't manage to get into any med school of my choice last year."..lol

    You have great gap year plans! I will not be travelling abroad not because I do not want to but I have been moving around the globe until now because of my father's job (not literally around the globe but I have lived in 6-7 different countries) and also I need to save some money for future and be nice independent girl...lol! ^_^ I will be working as a care worker for next 12 months, thats all. And yes, a regular gym and swimming to help cope with having no friends around..haha

    675...Well done on that score! But when you say its a poor score I totally understand what you mean. BTW how did you manage to get that score? Some tips would be appreciated. I have literally mugged up 600q book but i am still dreading the upcoming real test.

    What are your uni choices? I am planning to apply to keele and bristol.

    did you do the EPQ too? I know total waste of time and i truly hope this E will not ruin my application.
    yup :'(. I dont think it'll ruin it but it might have a teeny tiny effect if the admissions tutors are looking for a reason to reject you.. but they arent, they're looking for reasons to give you an offer (y)

    Wow, thats very efficient!



    Quite pleased at the moment - planning a trip to the Newcastle open day next saturday. Is pretty lucky that I decided I wanted it to look at it, and just happens there's an open day So probably going to book a hotel/hostel/b&b for friday night and have a fun few hours on the train there and back :|

    Going on my own though... oh the independence!
    Well if you need any help on which cheap hotels are closest to the uni or what buses to get or if you get lost or something then feel free to ask or message me
    Which day is the open day? I shall look forward to walking round town with loads of chinese and other randoms staring in a confused manner/taking pictures everywhere


    Also when you're booking your train its Newcastle central (metro).
    There's like three different options but that one's central ncl.

    (Original post by oldbatty)
    Oh and the Metro is fabulous for getting about!
    What choo talkin' bout?! The buses are canny fabulous too!


    Living next to the Coast Rd has some major advantages

    I kind of stalked track last year hence the need to memorise my UCAS no.

    If they're giving some people new no.s then they must go on email addresses or something when they think a personal statement looks similar ... well at least I hope they do since mine is just last years polished up a bit

    They should really give us reapplicants some sort of bonus points or free interview for perseverance.
    I see, I'm more of a hotmail refresher myself :cool:

    Lmao i'm gna stick my ucas track number on my bedroom wall now then so i can remember it. My wall is particularly empty now it's got no a level revision on it



    They should give us immediate interviews and cookies for wanting this so much.
    Infact i should be alllowed to write, "going through the pain of getting four medicine rejjections and reapplying again eventhough all my friends are at uni and i'm by myself and have to find/do a bloody full time job just for the hope of potentially getting one offer this year shows i'm more committed, motivated and awesome than any of these year 12's applying. So interview me." on my personal statement

    That's how I feel exactly. Everytime someone asks I end up telling them my life story, just to sounds lees of a failure

    I forgot about non-work and non-travel stuff (Extra curricular stuff?). I'm doing a refs course, a coaching course and hopefully find a footeh team that will let me join. (just realised it sounds like I'm doing... nevermind...) well that's it. All football related? gosh, thats a broad spectrum. Anyway...

    Honestly, I worked so hard for the measily, slightly above average score... I raped the 600Q book, most of [last years] 'how to pass (because you can't fail anyway) the UKCAT and BMAT'. I did the UKCAT official test download thing. Looking back, it seems like I didn't do that much... I just refused to pay for anything like UPO lol Maybe I'm just naturally, err, yeah that's not it. It's how you do on the day aswell. I know thats probably not what you want to hear - more pressure - but if, say, the Pearson guy comes to have a chat about problems with the UKCAT WHILE I'M DOING THE ****ING MATHS SECTION, you may lose time... I'm sorry, I'm just bitter...

    What was your score last year btw?

    Bristol and keele... I can't get into either of them 1 mark off a b in 4th AS... oh and a B in Eng lang. You'll probably have a good idea after your UKCAT

    I think I'll apply for Cardiff, Manch, Newc ?????????? ARGHHH I WANT TO GO THERE BUT MY UKCAT IS ****, and perhaps peninsula... idk. I'll do some phoning around this week and hopefully get some answers...

    I knoww, I'm pretty scared about leaving it soo late to decide - but from all the stuff I've looked at, I think I'll almost definitely go for Newcastle (or if I really hate it, which seems unlikely, I still like the idea of Peninsula) so I've put Newcastle in the form, and will just hit send on Sunday haha.

    I'm sorry i don't know wha t EPQ is
    *****
    But hey, i improved by a whole 10 from last year to 630...
    So where you applying?! I assume not aberdeen or lancaster anymore
    I don't know! I still can't decide and I need to send my form off to college tomorrow D: I'm tempted still to apply for Lancaster and maybe aberdeen ... but then again glasgow... ahhhh I don't know what to do! :O Help me!

    (Original post by laurenl93)
    Eh but surely they would know you're a reapplicant when you're using the same ucas id no as last year?
    I wondered that, but after I put in my old number I got a new number so then I wasn't sure - cause I think putting in the old number means it just saves you putting in a few details really. I did it anyways just to keep careers happy haha

    Where were you originally going to apply?

    If I were you, I'd go for places who rank you by UKCAT. So Glasgow, Newcastle, Peninsula... You could even go for SHeffield maybe? I know you're below their cutoff from last year, but if they are right about the cutoff going down, you could be in with a good chance

    I was going for St. Andrews, Cardiff, Lancaster and either Aberdeen or Glasgow but now I'm not sure. I know that I didn't like Newcastle (no offence to Lauren lol :P ) an it's a bit close to home and I've never really looked at Peninsula, might give it a look over

    I can't stand the Birmingham accent haha. I don't think I've got it too strong - but I think anybody from round here, ould say my accent is quite posh, whereas anyone from anywhere else would say its Brummy/Black Country...

    If only I was proud of my accent, and then this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlGae...eature=related would become really relevant
