    How come? I think I should meet the cutoff (675) but I'm not sure what other factors are taken into account (other than meeting academci requirements). Perhaps this could help me assess my chances
    Think carefully about the cutoff someone apparently said admissions had recommended 670 but there are so many high ukcat applicants I'm worried and I have 695. It's not a national average it's top 800

    still 760 characters to cut out of my personal statement. I really want to get UCAS sorted by tomorrow, so i can finally settle down with revision for january and try and find out where my job application has gotten to...

    By the way, East Anglia was brilliant yesterday (technically it was the day before yesterday). It was a good 5 hours getting there, but it was worth it. I loved the campus and the med school. We even got to look around the hospital and play around with some of the equipment the medical students use Sports facilities are spot on too. I would absolutely bite their hand off if i got an offer

    UEA open day >>> any other uni's open day :cool:

    If you had to pick between Barts or Nottingham which would you go for? Throw Southampton in that mix as well.
    With your grades, definitely go for Barts if you want to guarantee yourself an interview.

    Go for Barts and Nottingham - Southampton are heavily reliant on PS

    Guys, what med schools particularly like gappers? Like for instance give you more points before the interview stage therefore your more likely to get an interview?

    Especially out of these where is a gapper likely to have a better chance? (687.5ukcat, A*AAAc Alevels, 6A*s, 5As GCSE)
    Manchester
    Sheffield
    Leeds
    Newcastle
    Bristol
    Southampton
    any Scottish med schools

    Oh... my... god.

    Just rang Newcastle up, and found out they won't let me reapply. This after sending evidence from GP to them and waiting for over a month and not hearing anything at all.

    it might have been nice if they'd at least emailed me back and told me earlier :rolleyes:

    Need another choice now, somewhere you can apply with resits?

    So far, i have KCL (they'll consider me), UEA and Liverpool. Any ideas anyone?

    EDIT: Wait, it looks like lancaster is linked to liverpool with the same entry requirements? Does that mean i can apply to both liverpool and lancaster and have 2x the chance, or does it count as one med school? Desperate times...

    also do people talk about the gap year from the beginning? i only talked about mine towards the end....

    There aren't even that many paragraphs for it to be that

    I feel like that too!! I think the most important thing is that you have it all there, then it's how you talk about it. But damn is it difficult to explain everything! Like do you say "Yeah, I totes have got empathy" or do you say "I understand what BLAH blah blah..."

    I know that this probably didn't help you

    I really wouldn't worry - I know exactly how you feel with regards to the p/s. Trying to get everything in there is impossible. So what I say is include what you think universities will appreciate, and leave the rest to them.

    Last year I was so happy with my personal statement, read it back a year on and was literally :mad: as to why anyone let me submit it.

    We'll never be happy with it - it means too much for anyone to be like 'yeah that's enough' - so I just say do your best, and leave it at that
