    I've got 4 rejections (first time) but hopefully going to reapply this year.
    If I get AAA or higher do you think this will give me full mark in academic criteria marking and they will not really look at GCSE's?

    Sorry to hear about those!
    It depends where you apply. If I were you, I'd ignore the really GCSE-heavy places (e.g. king's), try really hard to get an amazing UKCAT and apply to the medschools that love UKCAT. But getting AAA (or higher) will definitely make you eligible to apply for medical school

    What are you planning on doing in the gap year while you reapply? Did you get interviews for your chosen Uni's?

    Wow, hope that ps3 increases your hand to eye coordination. Have you got battlefield 4? Black ops 2 is also good

    Interview at Manchester on Wednesday, starting to feel the nerves! I spoke to some Manc med students at work last week though and they were really nice and put me at ease a bit. Should hopefully hear the result from Dundee's interview too this week. Well whatever happens I've got a week of annual leave next week

    This year is the first year without January exams at AS/A2 Level, meaning no A2 resits. Do you guys think that because of this, more people will miss their offers this year (not meaning to sound horrible and cold or anything, I hope that anyone with an offer does well enough to make it), and there's more of a chance of people on the waiting list being offered places? Or do you think that universities are just making a few more offers to compensate? Or, do you think that seeing as some universities in the past have had "too many" people making their offer grades and getting in, resulting in the year group being too big, that universities won't alter the number of offers at all?
    Just curious is all, it seems quite interesting.

    You've mentioned a possible change to number of offers / places etc, but what about changes to grade boundaries If less people are managing to attain the top marks in some papers, (be it because of resits or not) could the grade boundaries will reflect this? As a result, may be very little will change?

    This option would only apply if you're an international student who is faced with 4 rejections.....or you're a filthy rich British dude.

    During my random usual procrastination (which is rather prevalent amongst GAP yahs students), I just came across this new UK medical school that will be opening up and taking in their first student intake for 2014 entry. You only need AAB at A-levels to be considered. The deadline is the 28th March 2014, and you will need to apply directly through their university- that is the The University of Central Lancashire.
