    Hey all

    Thought I'd come and join the gang! Recently received my third rejection after interview so it's not looking hopeful! I've got Keele left to hear from (which is ridiculously late as I haven't even had an invite for an interview :mad:)

    How is everyone doing? Well I hope I'll be honest, I've taken my rejections rather hard and I'm really really devastated, but us re-applicants have to stick together and we will one day make great doctors... all of us

    Just wondering if anyone has any great ideas for a gap year?? I'm a bit stuck really :P I know I need to get a job but I need some excitement!

    Wishing you all well

    Which book have you chosen? I recommend the 'How to pass the UK Clinical Aptitude Test and BMAT' book, it's the one I used :yep:
    As well as the practise questions on the website
    Oh and you may notice that they recycle questions, I recognised some from this years test that were in the one the year before :yep:
    Haha, I wouldn't remember the questions from this year - was too stressed :P

    I wasn't actually thinking about that one - the reviews on it weren't brilliant. I was just going to get the 600 questions one. I need as much practise as I can get And besides, I'm not planning on doing the BMAT anyway!

    Hey, first ever tsr post
    Just though I'd actually say something for once rather than just stalking.
    Three rejections with Bristol to go... can't see it happening tbh
    Finally got my head round the idea of a gap year, though what with living in a tiny village and all I want to be busy as much as possible so as not to drown in isolation - well that's a depressing thought... - but have no idea where to start planning.
    At the moment feeling a tad polar, one minute I'm like yay a year off to do all the stuff I've wanted to do but put off because school work's more important; but then I'm like gutted because I feel like every uni has totally belittled by academics and rejected me because I don't play any sports!
    Ah vent over, I'm sure shall all be for the best, or at least I'll pretend it is for so long that I actually believe it....
    Good luck to everyone else on this thread

    True but this'll explain if you get some dé ja vu when you do it

    haha fair enough, I suppose as long as you practice there's not really a lot else you can do about it tbh :rolleyes:

    Good luck when you do it

    Yep, I'm the same - still got to have hope though Its crazy how similiar we are reading this actually haha. I'm getting excited about taking a gap year, and doing these things I've been putting off at the moment. But yesterday I was just praying all day that I'd get an interview and have a chance.

    I'm sure we'll realise it was amazing for us really - and in some ways be glad of rejection, because we did have this wonderful year out, but doesn't feel like that at the moment does it :P

    Yep I'll be joining you all. Need to concentrate on getting the best possible degree, doing a spot of travelling, improving my UKCAT score and then updating the personal statement with accompanying reference.

    I'll be working full time as a pharmacist this year in Addenbrooke's Hospital so at least I'll be so tired and stressed that UCAS will seem like a relatively minor distraction!

    I'm thinking,

    Aberdeen

    Glasgow (dependent on UKCAT score of course, thinking anything above 700 should be safe)

    Newcastle (again, dependent on UKCAT being in the 700 region. Not sure whether or not to go for GEP - no financial incentive for Scots to go for GEP)

    ? St Andrews, Edinburgh, UEA, QUB - all options to be explored over the coming months!

    Newcastle or Durham (can't remember which sorry!) had on their website that they 'are particularly looking for local and MATURE students to apply' so might be worth an application from you? Thats what put me off applying there, but you'd stand a better chance

    Thanks. DMZ. Have you heard back from Leeds regarding the course you want to do. Hope you get in. But, you should have no problems whatsoever. You is in demand. Yeah........

    The 2011 re-applicants thread was still much better and a lot more funny and relaxed. But, hopefully this one will live up to that thread.
