    I seriously doubt anyone here will know cut-offs for biomed. Go ask in the biomed area

    Biomedical sciences and medicine are completely different... you should know what you want to study. Research go for biomed, doctoring go for medicine basically. Obviously biomed students go on to study medicine and medical students go on to research but nevermind.

    You're going to need a biomed personal statement to get an offer there. I know people last year that put it as their 5th and got rejected for not showing interest in their PS.

    Research in the biomed area if you want to do biomed
    I think ivegotluckyscrubs meant a toss up between biochem and biomed (not biomed and medicine) - just saying

    I was on JSA but then I got a job and signed off. I can honestly say it has ruined one month of my gap year. I found it extremely depressing, but I knew I was doing the right thing as I had no money and no job at the time! Your advisor will keep on pushing you to find work and whats worse is some of them aren't very competent. My friend who has an offer to do medicine next year was told to do an apprenticeship even though she's told her advisor she'll be doing medicine next year. Just apply for lots of entry level jobs as you're more likely to get them.

    yeahh I had a bit of a nightmare with JSA. I was offered a job at the start of the summer, but I wasn't atually working yet, so I had to get some money coming. And I was trying to explain that I'm hoping to go to university, so the meetings I was set up for about 'choosing a career' and 'getting apprenticeships' were a complete waste of time. Turned out after I'd been booked in for these meetings that I wasn't actually allowed to claim JSA because my mum was still claiming child benefits for me until September. So yeah, complete waste of time - in the end I decided that I wasn't that desperate for the money. I've only just started working now though, so I probably could have done with it. It was just frustrating applying for jobs that I had no intention of getting - but I had to do it to keep getting hte support until I was working, and even then I didn't end up getting any money from them!

    Haha. No probs. They do require you do apply for at least 6 jobs every two weeks and when you meet up with your advisor they'll make you go to CV/interview help classes and, worst comes to worst, apprenticeship workshops. :lol:

    I've only done short shifts so far. Got my first long day tomorrow, and its an early as well I don't like earlys - I'm so slow at changing beds hahah. But 13.5 hours??!?!?!?!?!?! I didn't even know they did those kind of shifts. I think I'd need a few days off to recover from that...

    I would laugh but given that my CRB has finally come through from the nursery I could very well be in the same position haha Although I do feel for you because I recon you'll have a lot more poop
