    I don't think anyone is truly interested in A-level chemistry
    I, for one, love organic synthesis.

    Yes but against myself, not so much against other people.

    Unless I dislike them. I'm not the kind of person to argue back with someone or really stand up for myself if someone is being a little ***** towards me. I just walk away/avoid the situation. Then I internalise all my anger towards them and use it as motivation to nail them in the exams.

    You have to learn to turn off your competitive streak sometimes - there will always be someone who can do it slightly better than you, you'll be that someone for plenty of other people too - keep your friends through medical school otherwise the whole thing will drive you crazy.

    How competitive you are? What kind of phrasing is that, something Yoda would say.
    Reasonably competitive am I.

    What are you asking?

    Am I determined?
    Am I determined to get where I want to?
    Am I determined to 'win'?
    Am I determined to do what is necessary to 'win'?
    Am I determined to do what is necessary, regardless, to 'win'?

    I am determined to get to where I want to be, I am, however, not prepared to forget good practice in order to do it nor am I prepared to **** on colleagues to do so. So, no, I am not competitive.

    The input of baby docs is invaluable in the majority of threads in this subforum. Bore on.

    I consider myself very competitive in all aspects, which is not good sometimes.

    If you think that I have nothing worthwhile to say and you think you could learn nothing from me, feel free to not ask me anything and ignore everything I say.

    Depends in what situation. Generally I'm not competitive, BUT, if I wanted to achieve something I will work hard. I will never hurt someone for being competitive though. That being said, I do get angry if I'm losing at trivial stuff such as games

    With the amount of people that I apply each year for Med, through UCAS you have to be competitive to think that you may stand a chance.

    Depends, I'm as competitive as hell when it comes to games In other things though I'm not really competitive, I just try my best and if I don't perform as well as others then fair enough.

    I'm less competitive than anyone here, I'll prove it to you in person if I have to.
