    The interview was actually on the 3rd :teehee: I had misunderstood it first... it's already done and dusted.
    And the offer came through yesterday :ninjagirl:

    But thanks for pushing me
    You got an offer! :gah:

    You thinking of firming it and spending some quality time with me, moistybabes, tikkitak and the traitor tome27 in old london town? :teeth:

    Hey, Everyone

    I have made a new thread in the medicine section about how the ukcat is used in each medical school. It is quite long, but it should help everyone when they have decide what medical school to apply to.

    The thread is here:-

    Yeah, chem eng was stupidly my back-up choice however advanced higher physics has put me off ALL engineering. It's not difficult... my teacher is a ****... Everybody thinks it's ridiculous that I'm willing to pay fees to study in England rather than get it free in Scotland, but if paying fees means that I got into a medical school, it wouldn't bother me in the slightest.

    Never thought about it... Any reason why?
    It's alright. My back up choice last year was Imperial for biomedical engineering and I was seriously considering it. Physics :facepalm2: My school didn't have Physics taught there so first year I had to go to a different school for it and second year, I was doing it through distance learning. :facepalm2: It does show dedication though since you are will to pay the increased rate as well even though you could study for free.

    It's just another option. The more options the better imo, although their admissions are fairly different. They have their own admission test - HPAT, and I don't think they interview.

    Yeah, I've thought about doing it, just because I don't want to be stuck here for another year. I want to move out, do something... oh well.... I've declined it now.

    That's kinda like what I did for chemistry this year. I was taught it through a tv in the music practice room (we were video-linked with a school 60 miles away).

    If it involves another admissions test... then I'm not really wanting to apply. The UKCAT is bad enough...

    I don't know what unis in England to go for next year though. I'm not doing AH biology this year (I'm doing it for the first time this year so only higher). Without biology I can apply to Barts, BSMS, Cardiff (I know Cardiff is not in england btw), Kings, Leeds, Manchester, Peninsula, Sheffield.... I'm not that familiar with English unis so I'm gonna have to do a fair bit of research.

    3 of them were HCA but in residential and care homes. The interview was them telling me how much am getting and if i had any questions :dontknow: might be different for hospital. Accompanied a resident for her chemo yesterday and HCA's just called people in from the waiting room, didn't seem like there was much to do, gonna apply to work there as soon as i get my laptop

    Ok lol sounds more like a post-offer interview or something
    I was told to look up what HCAs actually do on chemo cos i'll be asked what i think my role will involve, probably some scenarios and about myself and why i wanna work as a HCA, dreading the last question now. I just know I'm gonna babble and not make any sense. Then i'll probably start talking about medicine out of desperation to fill the awkward silence then they'll be like "Ok we'll get back to you" and rip up my application..

    Yea basically, they tell me to come for an interview but usually turns out I've got the job already. How are you gonna go about that? Haha the medicine's never worked against me before. I'm sure you'll be alright, probably over qualified for it

    I'll try and reseach the role or ask others i know who worked there
    but i'm not going to start explaining the concept of chemo to someone that has been trained in it..
    I'll try my best i guess but all this gap year planning is distracting my revision..

    But away from fornication and med talk... What is demi short for..?
