    Is it bad if I use the same personal statement as last year because all of the universities that I applied to last year said that my PS was very strong and I worried that If I change it, it won't be as good.

    Yeah, I got 3 interviews and the rejection was because I did some extra AS levels in year 11.

    I am applying for medicine this year, am I am wondering if my application is strong enough:
    GCSES: 4A*s, 6As (1 short course) and 1B
    AS levels: A(geog) A(chem) B(biology) - so close to an A! B(maths)
    UKCAT - VR(580) , QR(670), AR(700), DA(650), SJ - band 2 (Average 650)

    I have done lots of valuable work experience, I help at a care home, help at a scout group, have lots of hobbies, silver and gold duke of edinburgh, have a job...

    Could anyone suggest to me what universities I am most likely to get in to medicine?

    Thanks!

    Glasgow apparently have a 650 cut off score for UKCAT but I'm not certain. Also, your GCSEs are strong for Cardiff

    try this to show which places you're eligible for. Should be most I think except UKCAT heavy/ BMAT unis (unless you intend to do this). Go for GCSE uni's I guess (sould show you on the unireq thing or personal statement ones if you're confident in writing ability.

    Hi there,
    I'm looking for a bit of advice really,
    I had applied for medicine 2013 entry (Glasgow, Aberdeen, St Andrews, BSMS)
    I received 2 offers (Glasgow and Aberdeen) and firmed Aberdeen.
    Unfortunately I didn't meet my conditional offer - Got A B B (Maths was 1 mark off) and A* in my Extended Project
    I am planning on doing some resits and reapplying...does anyone have any advice on where to apply/any uplifting stories about people who were in my position and are now at med school?!
    I have read the thread about which ones accept resits but I've noticed people applying to others with resits too?
    Also I want to know whether I should apply this year or wait a year and apply when I have my resit grades
    Muchos Gracias,
    A very deflated yet blindly optimistic gap year person

    Anywhere between November and March maybe even April at a push! I wouldn't really buy any tickets until all your interviews are done or till after this period

    I know that UEA, Plymouth and Exeter allow resits. Im not sure on Liverpool because I know they did but I heard they changed that. Might also be worth asking the universities you applied to last year whether they will accept another application from you
