    Thought I'd jump back in here:
    Got 3 pre- and 1 post-interview rejections (Sheffield UEA Southampton and Durham)
    Managed A*AA (maths/chem/bio) today so extremely happy and definately reapplying, need to sort out my UKCAT though.
    Well done to everyone who got the grades and good luck in your applications!

    I can pretty much guarantee you won't get into Edinburgh unless you ace your UKCAT and blow them away with your Personal Statement; they are notoriously difficult to get into. I know someone who is from a long line of Edinburgh trained doctors, with a grandfather who was a professor of surgery there, and they still didn't accept him.
    Well, to Edinburgh, that's pretty irrelevant, as becoming a good doctor isn't something you just inherit. :lol:

    If you went to a state school (including grammar), The answer is yes. You will have to declare every single grade you achieved. For other applicants, please note that this includes subjects such as general studies/ critical thinking. If you went to a private school or institution, then ask your school for their policies, as some are allowed to leave their subject grade as spending.

    AAABB are good grades and will not majorly affect your chances of getting into medicine if you apply smartly. Look out for a TSR site which entitles "Medicine: Apply to your strength" which is very helpful. Out of the top of my head, Cambridge and Birmingham.

    What were your application outcomes? Did you have any interviews? People will be being offered places along their waiting lists. There are very rarely places in clearing.

    No. Medicine is too competitive and most if not all will not have any clearing vacancies left. If you were interviewed somewhere or applied for medicine for 2013 entry and got rejected, ring them up as they sometimes have few spaces available.

    If you didn't apply, then you will have to apply to start in 2014. There are no other options unfortunately. Good luck!

    Yes they said I'm on hold and will ring me up within the next few days. dunno what to make of it but moving on too gap year as normal if they get in touch thats a bonus. Have you? Bristol?

    Yes I feel so much more ready for everything now interviews ect, dreading the personal statement writing though aha.

    Oh yes I also sat my UKCAT dreadfully horrible exam, geussed most questions again, so bad at it.. But I did get 690 this time which is ok I geuss.

    So this year I'm thing Leeds,manchester,liverpool & either bristol,UAE,st georges, maybe sheffield. Which ever gives me best shot at interview.

    Have you got any intial places you want to apply?
