    20 a day should do the job check out apprenticeships based on wards too. I was offered a job as an apprentice clerical officer but the wages were way too low (£99 a week) but it gets you into the NHS so you can then apply for classified jobs (see it as a last resort though, I have a friend who's doing something similar and she says it's like college, you have to hand work in and stuff lol)

    Ah right,
    well thats good to hear then, did you get the job after many interviews or like in one application?
    I applied to a few HCA jobs on the NHS jobs webpage. Then had basic English and maths tests then was invited for interview day. There was written test, group discussion and then interview. It was the first interview I had and found I got it a couple of days later! But after that the starting process took ages! Are you interested in being a HCA during gap?

    Yeah its definitely something im interested in but im not 18 yet, im going to take a phlebotomy course too, hopefully that will be interesting and will increase my chances. It will be good to earn some money and gain work experience at the same time and to make good use of time.
    Are you interested in travelling? and what unis did you apply to?

    I'm self teaching myself further pure maths 1 and perhaps 2 during my gap year and hopefully will be able to study it while working.

    I wish I could somehow study mathematics and medicine as a degree, that'll be awesome!! :ahee:

    Same, maths and medicine would be great or even a maths module in medicine.

    Are you gonna do a complete further maths a/s or just those two?

    I applied to biomed only last year as i only got predicted AAB. This year after achieving AAA i finally got to apply to med ! yay.
    Fifth choice is MPharm at UCL
    I literally made an account just to ask this because i'm really stressing out! Do you have pharmacy work experience? I want to apply for MPharm at UCL as my 5th too but don't want to get rejected for not having any experience! Thanks

    I'll focus on FP1 for now. I don't think I'll have time to do both tbh at the end of the year if I find a job. I'm also not going to sit any exams, I genuinely am learning it just because I'm interested in maths. :yep:

    Maths and medicine would be the perfect combination but I guess they are kind of unrelated.

    that would be totally fun- I applied to applied mathematics and statistics at Glasgow as my fifth option and put in a paragraph of bioinformatics, biostatics, genetics and epidemiology in PS statement to make it relevant, because I love studying maths but hope it's not a risk fifth option.

    Haha. Well I personally dont have any pharmacy experience sadly. But its my fifth choice and I am hoping I will get into med. So really didnt think about being rejected because of that.
    However, I am guessing there r a lot of applicants who want to get into Pharm at ucl with the relevant work experience. I dont know if we will automatically get rejected. Worth a try

    Where else have u applied?

    Yeah I've been trying to get some in local pharmacists but i'm starting to think it'll be better to just apply than wait too long! Yeah hopefully we'll both get into medicine this time i guess i'm just pessimistic! I'm more worried about what i'm gonna write in my supplementary personal statement if i haven't got any pharmacy experience..

    I applied to UCL, St Georges, Barts and Kings you?

    Lots of others and no HCA posts in my area at the moment. Also not sure if it would be a good idea to be one because I signed up to be a SJA first aider and I volunteer in a hospice regularly so the changing shift patterns of NHS jobs might make it hard to be committed to those as well :/

    Perhaps therein lies the problem because of your availability and the ones you have applied for probably are choosing others with more flexible timetables. HCA would be hard to fix around your other activities but at least for now you're doing something (We could do a night raid instead for your PS4, I know a gadget warehouse not too far off mine...you have a gun right? )

    I thought you meant a world of warcraft raid aha I was like should I tempt my geek side more! I always knew Id have a HCA problem but I figured that If I could get a retail job then my working hours would be at least regular so I could shift around my volunteer days, and by volunteering I could keep in touch with the medicine side of my gap year. Worst comes to Worst ill work in my family business but I detest it! Id rather meet new people and stuff through a job Currently applying to as many retail ones as possible as a Christmas Temp!
