    hey,

    honestly, I wouldnt ring them. If you have an online ID for evision, they definitely have your application and if they havent rejected you, it means they havent seen your UCAS or are still considering you I was tempted to do the same because I was really feeling it, but remember they send your interview via post too! when I put it to aside in my mind and tried to forget it, I ended up being surprised when I heard They seem to be interviewing into next month

    Don't worry too much!

    You're pretty similar to me. Mature applicant, applied late to foundation and no real science background. I had kind of given up hope so don't give up!

    Just for reference as you never said what grades you had, just that they weren't conventional...

    I have A*AAAAABBBBCC at GCSE, DDM (320ucas points) in Performing arts BTEC. I studied AS levels but due to personal circumstances I had to drop out, so this interview is a huge relief for me!!



    I already have an unconditional place elsewhere but it's for a nursing degree, not 100% I want to do it, not as bad as ClinSci anyway! X

    Hi guys,

    Can anyone offer me some advice? I understand if you applied to first year of clinical sciences at Bradford and achieve 70% in all modules including chemistry then you are eligible to apply to Leeds for entry on to second year of medicine.
    After that what happens? Do you apply through ucas again or is it a direct application to the school of medicine? If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.
    Also if anyone has been successful having done the foundation or first year of clinical sciences I'd really appreciate it if you could share your experiences, work experiences etc.

    As far as I am aware and what I got told at my interview is that if you are in a certain percentile of your year then you are eligible to apply for entry to medicine at Leeds.

    This requires you to write a medicine personal statement and have an interview with the medical school at Leeds as you would have had normally.

    Well I didnt achieve as well as I should at GCSE due to health issues then more recently completed an Acccess course in land Based Studies

    Well didnt achieve as well as I should at GCSE due to health problems ;didnt do A levels and have since been down the NVQ route in healthcare so have relevant work experience in hospitals and Residential Care and more latterly completed an Access Course but in Land based Studies so not entirely relevant ! ha! Have two unconditional offers ,one for osteopathy and other in Physiology which is good .Just have to wait and see.....

    I've gotten an interview for 1st May (with great difficulty!) and was wondering what kind of questions they'd ask? I know they would ask questions based on my PS, issues going on with NHS but was also told they would ask questions in Biology? =/ Are there any specific biological topics they may ask about?

    I'd be grateful for any opinions on what i should do with my gap year.

    Basically I'm in my last year of sixth form and have been rejected from Oxford (GCSEs not high enough), Sheffield (personal statement not as good as other peoples), Newcastle and Durham (2.5 off the UKCAT cut off) for medicine. Through ucas extra I applied to the clinical sciences course at Bradford university (in my hometown) to keep my options open. Would it make more sense to just take a year out and travel, get work experience and a job like a HCA/phlebotomist or to take this course and hope i do well enough to move to Leeds medical school after the first year? Alternatively I could do a year of this course and then still apply through ucas to medical schools in October?

    For information my stats are:
    GCSEs: 6A*s 6As
    AS levels: AAAA
    A2 predictions: A*A*A*A*
    UKCAT: 692.5
    Work experience: long term charity volunteering and hospital experience

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the information, that answers some of my questions. Have you applied to medicine this year as well as the clinical sciences course at Bradford?
