    do some volunteering and with something you find interesting and fun. Go look at what kind of flyers are set up in the library :dontknow:

    take a writing course in how to write the best ps in the world? :pierre:

    or you know just do something you are passionate about and that you can talk about later in your ps, and check of the list of leadership-role, responsibility, work exp, communication skills etc. Dunno it really depends on your current qualifications and your ps and what you would like to do and how much time you are ready to spend. How you could improve really and how you can do that efficiently, not good if you spend 5 hours a day on something that is just making you stressed out and dislike life just because you want to get into medicine... do something you enjoy and you think you can benefit from

    I don't think you can. I heard that A* can only be achieved if you get over 90% in your first attemp.
    I've heard something about one exam board's geography course not allowing it. It sounds too specific to be true, so I call bull****

    There might be a chance for you to do some extra projects with the uni that could be medically related. This could help. I know nothing else regarding this. Sorry.

    Be a nerd and aim for a first.

    Perhaps before you submit your application do some volunteering in Africa or something. Teach English abroad. Tutor A-level/GCSE students (some good side money as well aside from your pimping :lolwut:). Do all these things, reflect on them well, get a good GAMSAT, BMAT and/or UKCAT and I'll make a medical school just so I can have you.

    That is a very doubtlful contention given that universities and employers are well aware that the A* grade was not available two years ago. By that logic you could argue that the preponderance of high grades undermines the achievements of pupils from, say, the 1980s or 1970s who took A levels when the number of people who could get each grade was based on relative results each year, and before the standard of questions was reduced and the exams modularised. How irritating would that be?
    you make a very valid point grumpy mod! . If i was doing A-levels in the 80's and 90's I would be very bitter :P

    I'd rather take 9K up front for one year, than pay 9K for the next 5yrs
    If you think it's going to be only for one year you're going to be in for a shock!

    god these new A* grades are seriously undermining the achievements of people who in the old system got 4A's. I find that somewhat irritating ...oh well :P
    Me too. I got 90-100% in my first 5 modules for Maths and Physics so went out and got absolutely wasted the night before my final two exam because I had nothing to gain from revising (I already knew I had an A overall). I was still drunk while I took them. If I'd had an A* to aim for, I might not have had to suffer such a horrific hangover.
