    I talked to a guy in Hmv today and he said to call on the weekend when they check for pre order cancellations. If he has any (they had a few xbx's spare) I can get one!!!

    Same I don't want to get rejected, I really like Manch one of my top choices, all i know is that my UKCAT is strong enough judging from stalking thread I just hope I pass the PS screening.

    As for PS4 Im still £70 short and still job searching then ill have enough for it alone, I did preorder it but game said I might have to wait a bit after launch date. Online on Game.co.uk there is a deal for £605 which has PS4 including FIFA 14, CoD Ghosts, Killzone Shadowfall, Need for Speed Rivals and some lego game lol. Quite a nice deal especially if you're a guy :P (not to be sexist but we love FIFA and CoD)


    EDIT: oh and I used to get problems from my mum, she bought me the stuff but never allowed me on it much lol, she hated when I played Runescape and World of Warcraft but then I showed her my grades
    yeah same! Manchester is my first choice as I live here so I wont have to cook, clean or do anything other than study and eat

    Nice But I would rather buy shadowfall with the PS4 than with Cod included. I wouldnt play that game if someone paid me. Once you become a killzoner (which I hope you will) you will understand this rivalry. COD is for children. KZ is for grown ups (when you see the brutal melees and the sounds they make, you will know...#THE HISTORY OF THESE DAYS WILL BE WRITTEN IN BLOOD! - best KZ quote). Plus we can all be medics and go around reviving each other


    haha I call it a "stimulating diversion" It was a stress buster during revision when I had an hour to spare. Now its my fulltime occupation (alongside my job) Really helps with relaxation Thats my excuse

    Anyone else who is working having issues with their boss?

    My manager is an absolute *****. She accused me of lying and it really upset me. She also heard me call her "*****" and now we officially have a mutual dislike for each other. She wrongly accused me of "playing" on the computer when I was meant to be working when all I was doing was crossing off the content up by the previous user and she conveniently walked past and I told her I didn't do it and repeated this 3 times after she said "yes you did I saw you". She spoke to me like I'm a ****ing kid who is gonna lie. I felt like slapping her.


    If only "the purge" was an existing legislation...I know what I would do to that *****

    Sorry if that in any way offends you but I was really upset. I was wrongly accused of lying which is not something that anyone would take lightly.

    Secondly, this website is clearly for socialising aswell. Of course, when in a professional situation I wouldn't swear or speak like that but this was something personal. Anyone in my position would have felt and said the same. This woman is pure evil.

    You might want to have a look at the advice from BMA/GMC (I think both put out advice but might have been one) on the use of social networks. Remember that it's out there and so a patient in 5 years time might find it. With the increase in the use of social networks it is important to be aware of risks and potential issues. Some medical schools look for this at interview..

    I doubt they would use something like this against me. But for my own sake I deleted the swears

    Absolutely out of order, it's a stupid system.

    You don't necessarily have to put AS grades if you have taken it to A2 :confused:

    Blimey.

    Some re-applicants have only put down their cashed in final A2 levels. Others have put in both their AS-levels and A2's. Putting down your AS' is optional in the same way that putting down your UMS scores for every module is.

    Leeds have spent the past 6 months pointing out to everyone who's anyone, that if you have achieved a2 levels, you will score full academic points, and the rest of your application will be judged on UKCAT and PS.

    Due to their new computer system, they have put those with achieved A2's on the same pedestal as those with with GCSE's and no cashed in AS' - thereby ignoring the fact that they've achieved AAAA at AS and gone on to get AAA at A2, and only judging them on their GCSE's.

    Those with achieved grades who put in both AS and A2 are fine though.

    I would assume that they would re-classify re-applicants to abide by their initial admission policy through manual means. I really doubt they will leave the system as it is, as there is no logic behind this.

    I would definitely call up before Leeds reject pre-interview just to confirm if Leeds will amend the reapplicants ranking :/

    From their e-mails, it seems pretty clear they are not. I thought I would give it a couple of days to let this technical hoo-har calm down first.
