Yeah I also applied for the en-suite on the green. I think you have to pay the deposit after you get the grades in August.

It's great to see a thread getting started so early for you guys starting Bradford this September. Good opportunity for you to get to know each other before starting - that way you will feel more relaxed and you can settle in much easier once you start. I wish I had set something up like this back when I started.

I completed the Foundation Year myself in 2010 and have now finished Year 1 of Medicine in Leeds. I'm happy to give advice to any of you if needed - just quote me or send me a PM and I will get back to you ASAP.

Wishing you all the best of luck with A-level results and preparing for university!

Thanks. What do you actually study in the foundation year and how difficult is it to get 70%?

200 UCAS points.
Treat it as a medical interview.

No worries, happy to help.

The content of Foundation Year is:

-Biology 1 & 2: studying basic medical science e.g. proteins, lipids, biochemistry etc.
-Chemistry 1 & 2: an extension of some of the concepts covered at A-level e.g. organic chemistry, amino acids, isomerism etc.
-Lab & Study Skills: Anatomy, Lab Reports and a module on Problem Based Learning (PBL)
-Special Studies: 2 independent essays on topics that you choose and an information leaflet on a disease.
-Health & Society: basic structure of the NHS, health promotion, health policy and reform.
-Personal & Professional Development (PPD): Forming action plans and targets for the year, reflecting on these and assessing your own performance.

I would say it takes a lot of effort to achieve 70%, but if you have previously studied A-Level Biology and Chemistry then you will be fine. That's not to say only the people with Bio & Chem succeed - they don't. If you work hard, put in all the required effort for the exams/assignments and stay consistent with your results then you will be fine. Try not to fall into the trap of achieving low in something and intending to balance it out with something else - that's often pretty difficult and many students don't make it that way.

Hope that helps.

Is there much maths based stuff? I done A level biology but not chemistry (got an A for GCSE in both and B in physics)- should I be alright if I work hard?

Did you have to do the UKCAT again to apply to Leeds via the foundation year? Meaning do we have to do the UKCAT this August/September (2012) for 2013 entry?
