    The test average wasn't quite as high as the Student Room average suggested! Guess everyone here is just a genius ������
    Well we always knew that, but I would point out my predictions were remarkably accurate! Guessed the average score deciles within 10 points

    confusedbengali - really think you should look at going for another degree first e.g. biomed, and then try medicine as a graduate for either the 4 year or 5 year programmes. If you are that determined to go for medicine, I think the gap, even at Foundation level, may be too much from where you stand today as there is plenty of competition for the Foundation places as well. Sounds like you need to get into University, focus on your studies and try again as a graduate. Around 30% of biomed graduates go down this route and into medicine I believe so you will not be alone taking this strategy.
    I think that's probably the best option, I'm going to apply for medical materials at queen mary do you think it's a good choice if I want to do a graduate entry into medicine, I don't want to do biomedicine because by itself it has low career prospects and most of them are only in research

    [QUOTE=ameelia22;44798922]Can you please remind us all how great your son is, how he has 7A*s at A-level, how his UKCAT is big enough for me to drown in and how despite the fact that he is SO fantastic, and SO much better than the rest of us, he is incapable of typing for himself?
    [QUOTE]


    Having a bad day today are we, no need for that sort of post? By the way, my son has his own account and it is his business when he posts on here which he has.

    I notice the new UKCAT scores and that will catch some out if marginal to cut-off grades. Wonder if some applicants are trying to change their choices online at the last minute if they have not submitted?

    Just remind us, I'm sure we'll all forget.

    Is that really necessary? Parents are just as welcome to post here as students are and the rest of your post just smacks of jealousy.

    Theres a big difference between AAB and CCC , or course you worked hard to achieve yor grades as they were only " 1 mark off ". Also I never said that people who didn't get AAA didn't work hard I was reiterating the point confusedbengali posted when they said they only did a weeks sociology revision. Hope this now makes sense sorry for any offence caused
    Oh, fair enough, I didn't read all the posts to be honest but I just thought that sentence sounded a bit harsh to us resit applicants
