    @purplestrawberry, what region of England are you from? i sent mine on 24th October and am still waiting for a letter, and it's also my first choice.

    Dont worry I sent mine on the 11th of October due to sending my application off for Medicine and still have no reply. Hopefully we will hear good news soon!! Good luck!

    The university is good. It actually exceeded my expectations and it's a brilliant place to study.

    Support is not so great. Emails will get very slow replies from lecturers. With regard to exams, you tend to find out about a week before of any deadlines etc so it's something you will have to put up with.

    I had an exam and emails to three different lecturers went unanswered. So don't hold your hopes when it comes to exam time. It's just you and the lectures.

    With regards to accomodation....I can't answer that since I don't know whether your talking about Uni accom or private?

    Thanks for the info, and about the emailing and the exams, I guess Uni life really is going to be us being independent so we kind of do have to get used to it! And I was talking about university accomadation..

    No problem. University is about you. No one will force you to come to a lecture and no one will care whether you have handed your work in.

    I didn't mean to put anyone off with my comments about exams. I wrote that because it feels so different. At A-Level you can run to your Chemistry teacher and ask for some help etc. You have to book appointments to talk to lecturers which is perfectly reasonable but not something I'm used to.

    University accommodation is good. I would not recommend private in Bradford though

    Any other questions, please feel free to ask.

    Yeah if I get an offer, I was thinking of applying for university accommodation, don't think I want private! How was your interview for the course?

    Obviously I am not allowed to discuss interview questions but it is very informal. You MUST bear in mind that you are a potential future doctor they are looking at. You must act formal even though they will be extremely friendly.

    Think before you speak. You will not be marked down if you take a second to think and talk. Maintain eye contact with BOTH interviewers. These are simple interview rules.

    Nerves are 100% normal. If you are not nervous before the interview, I would be concerned for your mental state

    It's relaxed and the interviewers are very nice people. They don't try to catch you out or anything.

    I wish I could tell you more about format, questions etc but I'm not allowed

    No worries this is great information, lol I wish we could get more information about question formats and stuff but its okay! any tips and advice on how to get the best out of the interview and ways to help you think on the spot? I know that is one of my main concerns

    I think the deadline for clinical sciences is the same as other ucas courses, 15th January. I don't know much about ucas as I was focused on applying to medicine and that wasn't going to change. So if you would normally be allowed to change a course after you've applied, I don't see why not.

    There are 20 transfer places for the foundation course, and 20 for the 1st year BSc course. You still have to pass the Leeds interview if you get to be in the top 20 - and I think also have to do UCAT (but check that). They have approx 100 places on the course in total and you have to get a certain percentage in exams - 70% on Foundation and 60% in year one to be considered for the transfer places. They then cut it down to the 20 by interviews - so usually 20 are accepted as there are more than 20 that reach the required percentage.

    They will ask for specific certificates from you on the letter you receive if you are accepted for an interview.

    I don't think you have to take the UKCAT test for the transfer.

    Was that a preinterview rejection or did you have an interview? Do you mind me asking what your stats were?
