    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:
    Security industry will employ anyone (regardless of gender or even species) :\ that's a garantee to all people who end up having to find a boring job as a last resort

    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?

    I thought you had to include your gap year!? Wow, everyone said you have to mention it though, right?

    Very poor because this was before I was 18, so like 4.90 an hour. 18+ It may be like £6-7 an hour at some places. It's not health care assistant pay but it would be better than nothing.

    You don't have to, even if you do I only mentioned a sentence or two about HCA work. As Leeds stated in their admissions statement, they can't give you marks for things you plan to do. So devoting a paragraph to how your going to go travelling the world may be put to better use through talking about things you have already done. But I know some universities like UAE may get in contact to find out what your doing during the gap year.

    Also for people looking for care jobs, have you looked in care homes? They're always looking for cheap labour to fill shifts ect which can get you started! The place I volunteered at was anyway.

    Where does it say in any admissions policy that you HAVE To????

    Plus what's the point of writing something you haven't done yet? Most unis only consider the things you have already done and not what you forecast you will do

    And if they are looking at your PS as a school leaver then it doesn't matter about gap years as most people will be in year 13

    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.
    Just found it there! Thanks!

    The policies can change from year to year when the admission people (little devils ) review their admission protocol/system. Though the ones I know that will allow resits regardless of any circumstances are UEA, Exeter, Liverpool and others depending on what grades you got the first time round.

    God forbid they update their policies to reflect current research on how to select the best potential doctors :tongue:

    Well it's all debatable and subjective isn't it, otherwise every medical school in the UK would have a mutual admission selection/policy or opinion on what makes the best potential doctor.

    Check this guy out, he's had a blog running from his GCSE days (oh my, I can't even remember them) and is starting his first year at Barts! Quite inspiring and so exciting seeing his updates on starting first year (and yes, I'm quite jealous!)

    Hey, I was wondering if anybody here could help me out with my situation.
    GCSEs: 9A*A
    AS: 4A in Bio, Chem, Maths and History
    A2: A in Bio, B in Maths, B in Chem [I wanna cut myself]
    Is there any point in me reapplying for medicine. I have to resit the B grades, even though they were 10 UMS off in each case. A lot of unis will only consider AAB resits, and will I have a chance applying anywhere?

    UEA, Liverpool, Lancaster, Plymouth, Exeter although I'm not sure about Plymouth and Exeter for 2014 entry

    Good luck!

    With ABB, it is going to be difficult but it isn't impossible. (especially if you had persuading extenuating circumstances). I believe that UEA accepts ABB. (prior to resiting)
