    Hey guys,
    I am reapplying for 2014 entry after being rejected pre-interview for all 4 of my applications. I applied to QUB, Dundee, Cardiff and Glasgow.

    GCSE: 4A*s, 5As, B
    AS: AAAA
    A2: AAB
    UKCAT(2012): 642.5

    I am currently resitting the B at Alevel. Any advice on which unis will take a resit at Alevel? I know QUB will take resits as long as I end up with AAA at Alevel.

    Thanks!
    How do you now QUB accept re-sit applicants? I thought they didn't.

    Which subject was the B in?

    It says in their admissions they will if you get AAB minimum and resit the B to get an A. You can only do this if you previously applied in the last year!

    B was in chemistry unfortunately. Poor module 5 paper dragged me just below

    Oh right well at least you get help from college for it?? Or do you? Or is that just when you gotta send it off?

    Yeah, we get some form of help when we come in.

    Have you started your personal statement? I'm really struggling with what I might put in mine as I don't have a job yet and I don't have any solid plans for the gap year

    I have kind of done a draft but its not really a draft (it's a list of everything I will include lol) so using a list I can change the order of the stuff I put in

    I'm not gonna mention my gap year at all because I didn't find a job and won't be doing anything special lol. If I found a job before October the 15ths then I would include it I don't think there is a point of including stuff you haven't done yet!

    Are you gonna mention your gap year?

    Where would I be at an advantage in relation to Med school's entry requirements for A-Levels. I got A*AAB.

    PS, I wouldn't mind in Wales/Scotland, it doesn't have to be England!

    I think you misunderstood me. I was explaining that I wouldn't mind studying medicine in England or Northern Ireland. Just really around this area!
    I am open to travelling and enjoy it.

    I am researching and was wondering which uni's place an applicant at an advantage when you have completed your A-Levels. I know Queens do in belfast.

    Lol I think that's the third time you have asked that

    You would be at an advantage for having 4 a levels only at Queen Mary London, in terms of A*s I don't thinks many unis discriminate them from As: apart from Oxbridge, Birmingham, Exeter and Edinburgh where A*AA is a typical offer

    If you're emailing asking them something you could work out from their website (ie do I have a shot with these grades) then they're unlikely to reply at all.

    They won't reply to questions like this because they are not allowed to give personalised information to tell you the likelihood of the success of your application

    There's a section on resits in the medicine wiki. It's complicated so I can't give you a simple answer - you need to study it.

    I am not sure on which retail to work with.
    I worked for gamestop for a week and let's say it didn't go that well.

    Also, will retail really employ students in this economic climate??:confused:
