    I dunno.. Based on the (rather old and sketchy, I admit) data on medicalschool online, school leaver chances range from 9-38% whereas the GEP courses are 5-16%.
    example: Barts

    undergrad - 1 in 3 applicants get a place
    graduate - 1 in 13 applicants get a place
    (from their 2012 prospectus)

    AND ukcat cut-off was something like 60 points higher I believe?

    So....if you're having problems getting on to an undergraduate medicine course, then definitely do not think that applying to a GEP three years later is an easy alternative!

    that, and the courses which do have data on there are, from what i've been told at interview by admissions staff, generally on the lower end of the competition scale compared to the ones which aren't on it. kings and newcastle definitely have applicant ratios as high or higher than 5%, at least.

    lol why does everyone want me to reapply....I CANT!!!!
    sorry to sound like a prick when everyones just trying to help but the tuiton fees arent worth and i made a mistake.YES!
    i shouldve done bio this yr...too bad i didnt but medicine isnt the world.
    i cant sit at home forever.
    you will have to pay at the very least 9000 pounds of your own money with no student loan available straight off the bat for tuition fees for the gep course. and that's if they increase the funding available... which they won't. with the 5 year you may pay more overall, but it's all as a loan that you can ignore until you get a well paid job. you also sound, to be frank, like a tit and gep is more competitive at interview so unless you completely change your personality in 3 years you're probably better off going for the 5 year

    Don't do medicine then! Change your plans, if medicine isn't the end of the world, since it seems very unlikely that you'll get in, pick a different career! The facts aren't going to change just because you throw a strop. And yes, before you ask, I am a graduate in Philosophy, and have 2 offers for medicine. No I cannot show you my offer letters, I can't be arsed and my duck ate them.

    Maybe considering your propensity for endlessly arguing without making a coherent point and your penchant for utterly irrational statements, politics might be an idea?

    Please let this be a troll.
    1) Your post is crawling with a 'blame everyone else' attitude. Are you seriously saying the reason you were rejected from Keele was because you fell out with your friends?
    2) Lack of chavs eh? So what are you going to do when you enter the real world? You won't get on with everyone.
    3) Wtf do you mean, the Soton waiting list was fake? Try telling that to the two people I know that got into Soton through it.
    4) Don't spam. What was the point of posting 3 times in 6 minutes?
    sorry on my phone, negged you by mistake. Remind me to make it up later

    Ah, you've come out from under the bridge. Good thing, the nutters on Louis Theroux were getting a bit boring, I fancied something more extreme!

    Ok- 1) Yes, Philosophy is a course. I got a BA in it would you like a link to the prospectus? (I spose the clichéd answer would be: "Is it? Is anything even a course?")
    2) You said you didn't care about medicine, that it wasn't the end of the world! If that's your attitude, it makes little sense to continue, surely?
    3) ****ging me off would work, but for the fact THAT I GOT OFFERS at a graduate level, no less. Which, as you've been told multiple times, is more competitive than school leaver entry. So.... your argument is redundant.
    4) I'm glad that you don't have to worry about money. If this is the case, can I ask why you kept asking me about it? Do you just like my typing? Is it your way of keeping our relationship going? Do you miss me when I'm not replying? I know my avatar is stunningly attractive, but I'm not actually a hadrosaur.

    Because I did it with no other choice. There wasn't opportunity for me to apply as a school leaver (long story, involves violins). If there had been, I would've applied there and then. And I did it when the fees per year were around £3500, which means in total, I only have to pay £14k. Which is unpleasant, but dealable with. You're talking about a whole different ball game.

    Yes. I am that good. I applied for medicine 10 years ago when I was 11. Of course.

    They had UKCAT 4 years ago, yes. And inflation is one thing, but I think fees going from £14k to £36 is Zimbabwe levels.
