    That score is fine.
    Thank you, sorry if it looks like I'm panicking over nothing but I've read more than one post on the forum say that Liverpool pretty much only interview candidates with 18/18 at GCSE.

    Absolute BS. Historically, statistics suggest 16+ (but mainly 17+ for comfortability) will get you an interview if other factors are right i.e. PS.

    Just to increase my post count on TSR lols. Don't think DermSoc is part of theirs. You free on the 27th September to give a mini lecture to pre-med applicants? It's basically an access to medicine type event to help students get into medical school. And can I bribe you with a certificate? I'll PM you with more details tomorrow. Thanks.

    Did anyone get an interview without getting 18/18 for GCSE? Is it really not worth my time applying for Liverpool with my GCSE score of 17/18?

    Hi, I got an interview and subsequently an offer with a GCSE score of 17/18. It's still a fantastic academic record and as long as you have done adequate work experience and voluntary work etc and you are a 'well rounded person' (with all this put into your personal statement) you have every chance of getting an interview. I am now looking forward to starting medicine at Liverpool in the next few weeks.

    All the best.

    Hi guys,

    I need some advice. My stats:

    GCSEs: 6A*S 4As
    AS level: 4 As
    A2 Predictions: Either A*A*A or A*A*A*

    If I want to apply to Liverpool, should I be focusing on my personal statement? If so, does anyone know what they like to see?

    Hi,
    Firstly, congratulations on an excellent set of results so far. Just ensure you stay focused on your studies as you have done previously so that you get the AAA/AAA* needed for your offer if you were to get one.

    I would say that any voluntary work is important (preferably in a health-based setting) along with work experience in healthcare/ a hospital. Ensure that you reflect on what you have learnt from it along with all of your other activities and how this relates to your ambition to become a doctor. DO NOT simply list what you have done!

    All the best.

    Really love Liverpool and the medical school looks really good however my score is only 15/18 however I have my A Level grades and they are A*A*AA. Do you think that I could potentially get an interview or is it not worth risking it?

    Hey guys,
    Got 6A*s and 4As at GCSE. Missed my offers cos i achieved A*AB in Chem, Bio, Maths..
    Gonna be predicted A*A*A as a re-sitter.
    My overall chances?
    Also, I didn't have extenuating circ. so will that go against me when i just speak about complacency when i reflect about it in my PS.
    Thanks

    Great GCSEs and predicted A-Levels so I think there is no harm at all in giving it a go!

    It's borderline. If you really like the city, I'd say it is worth a shot for sure. Make sure your PS is good to get your pre-interview score up.

    E-mail them and get written confirmation that they would consider your application.

    But do they not consider resit applicants who don't have extenuating circumstances?

    i emailed them and they will accept resit applicants without extenuating circumstances, you have to reflect on it in your personal statement though but that bit has stumped me, i don't know what to write apart from the fact that i was complacent
