    haha yeah that's right

    but incase i get like a C in chemistry or something i wouldnt be able to apply next year and would have to do another degree

    have you not got a back up plan JUST INCASE results day doesnt go as planned? i dont wanna be stuck on results day crying with the bottle of vodka in my hand is all :P
    I'm trying to be as positive as possible. But if i start preparing for what i'll do if i don't get the grades, i just won't be as motivated to work my socks off when it comes to the revision, knowing that there's a backup plan.

    I know the saying 'hope for the best, and prepare for the worst' - but i just don't want to go there :coma:

    My mum says she would be happy as long as I am happy in whatever field I choose, sounds soppy but at least there is no pressure. I know she would be mega thrilled if I got in though.

    May be using tonight to watch Series 6 of Futurama...


    Lol, mine says exact same

    i have noticed 2 people who got offers recently, one today, and one a couple of weeks ago, saw it on the aberdeen med forum here

    What makes things worse is that Edinburgh sent out an email saying they are full and if we hear it will be in august after A-level results,

    Today is so depressing, feeling half-suicidal, im keeping up hope I will get in nxt year hopefully

    I wish mine said that. But, she just puts too much pressure on me and thinks of me as a failure if I do not get into medicine.

    Errm... My fifth choice is biochemistry, which i dont really want todo due to its job prospects and uses.

    I am trying to focus on exams, then uckat then ucas then worry about the rest, lol, but whatever keeps u going.

    I am just trying t think if things overall, if that makes sense, I mean I try to think about all thr things I have rather than what I dont. I have a relatiely good life and great family. Arghh, trying to put it across without sounding soo cheesy.

    Basically, not getting into med is not the end of the world, we will all end up where we are supposed to some day.

    Still.I want a med offerrrrrrrrrr:rolleyes:

    Guuuuuys have yous applied for student finance yet?


    if so what the hell course did you put down when they ask you and where?

    also congratulations funsizedkarategeek! :woo: how many hours p/w?
    I accepted my biochem offer but didn't apply for finance.
    The way i see it, if i don't get the grades i want i can still go, but it just means i get my funding later (perhaps in january or something) cos you can still apply for finance throughout the year, you just won't get it during the first term
    I just don't want unnecessary paperwork/hassle with the UCAS, the uni, bank etc when i know i have no attention of actually taking it up..

    And thanks I'm soo lucky to get it though! It's 37.5hours so full time
    AND she's fine with me starting after my exams cos of all the paperwork/admin/references will take a while
    Said she was impressed with me at interview but due to my limited amount of experience, she had to push it down to band 2 pay (was originally a band 3 post) but i'm not complaining!


    (Original post by -Taz-)
    0845 actually

    In all seriousness i think i'll try and wake up at that time anyway, just so i don't lose all self-control



    :banana: Well done, when are you starting?



    Errrm, why would we apply for student finance? I'm taking a gap year and reapplying for medicine next year, so i assume i'll have to apply for finance then, right?

    ... RIGHT? :eek:
    Haha so am I. I'll try be at the library by 9, wont leave till 4/5. Have lunch breaks etc like i was at school.
    But i say that now, and in two weeks time when its 10 in the morning, i'll probably be in bed like :coma:

    I start in July! I told her when my last exam was and she said it was fine! I was actually surprised cos i applied for it ages ago and thought they needed someone urgently
