    Wow going to America must have been amazing I'm trying to arrange some lab work and dairy Cos that's what I'm missing atm I think

    I don't know another course which expects so much of you even before you've started lol
    Yea I loved it. My favorite placement to date has been the dairy farm, really have enjoyed it.

    I know, its the hardest course to gain a place in. The interviews are extremely tough, aswell as good grades and a heap of exp.

    Cool it's hard ain't it to find a flexible workplace same about the application status nearly nearly finished I'm feeling really nervous though !!!!
    Yeah, where I'm working right now isn't that bad, they know about uni/work experience so my manager often gives me days off at the last minute to go see an op etc. And she gives me like a whole week off at a time, providing I work solid for at least 2. :rolleyes: The only problem I'm having with her is getting away in time to see evening consults, she's had me on lates every day since I started and refuses to recall the multiple discussions we've had about it.
    I'm the same, I don't think there's anything quite as nerve-wracking as trying to get yourself into uni. And the fact that the process is so long really doesn't help much.

    I'm guessing you guys are all in pretty much the same situation as me - all friends are leaving for uni this weekend/next weekend and I'm the only one here now sucks!

    Oo thats pretty good, shame about the whole lates situation! I've got set hours at the pub which makes arranging stuf easier. Sorry for the delayed reply been in London seeing Lee Evans was soo good. The train journey did give me time to finish my final draft of personal statement.

    I've got a minimum number of hours to be completed each week, but no set days or anything. Ohh, very good, how long did you stay there? I remember watching him in Mouse Trap or something. I was so sure I had mine done, but then a person I asked to read it came round this afternoon and said to change thisthisandthis and now I'm all frazzled again.

    It's good to know I'm not the only one feeling like this! I'm just throwing myself into work experience, BMAT revision and generally anything to try and forget about it

    But yeh - I'm sure it'll be us guys partying hard next year! I hope! It's only one year... :'\

    Ah yay
    Yeh it truly does suck - it still hasn't sunk in for me and I'm at home - they're all texting me saying how awesome it is, though at first quite a few said they wanted to come home - at least it means a load of free holidays for weekends What work experience are you doing?
    Ah well I'm booked with work experience til November, and then just a job to try and compensate for the hike in fees - not that you'll ever really be able to compensate for them I guess!
    I got A's in chem & bio, B's in physics & maths. C in further maths AS and an A* in EPQ. I'm resitting a physics module to hopefully push it up to an A in january. How about you?

    Everyone guesses on the BMAT anyway. It's not as terrible as everyone makes out tbh!

    Nah, there are a few people at work who have reduced hours because they're pregnant/have college etc so I basically cover whenever they can't work. Oh wow, I'd love to go there. It's not quite as cool as London's but there's a science museum in Edinburgh somewhere that I'm visiting next week after the open day, quite looking forward to it.
    Yeah, it's awful. I'm at the point where I almost don't care anymore, I just want rid of the thing! But at the same time, I'm a total perfectionist so don't want to let go until I'm happy with it.
