    Ola!

    I'll join in too. I am a mature applicant and am going to try for 2014 entry whilst I study my access course (A-Level alternative), but it may be that Unis don't consider me til I've finished the course in which case 2015 entry it is....

    Good luck peeps long road ahead. Starting early puts you in good stead; try and get well informed during Summer of different careers before you confirm Medicine is absolutely right for you and that you want to be a doctor, because there are other wonderfully rewarding careers in NHS/healthcare/science, too! This would give a clear sense of direction with regard to all your activities/work experience towards your application.

    What kind of G.C.S.E grades you guys achieved or are predicted?
    My results that are predicted:



    • A in Maths
    • A in Photography
    • A in History
    • A in I.T. Bacs
    • A* in Film Studies
    • B in Relious Studies
    • B in DiDA
    • B in English
    • C in Science *
    • C in Additional Sciene *

    * The science department could not decide whether or not to enter me for Higher or Foundation Science and they entered me for Foundation which is now a decision they regret and I did try to be put in for the higher option.


    Really annoyed me about Science but doing Biology and Chemistry next year at A-Level and Maths (with Mechancis too).

    I'm Year 11 and have a major passion and want to be a doctor however only decided around November/December this year after I got over being squeamish and had major surgery myself - let me realise how important it really is.

    I'm FFT predicted all A* par drama and German but my realistic hopes/expectations are:


    • A* maths (already have)
    • B English Lit
    • B English Lang (I'd love an A but I've barely revised because I've been revising history)
    • A* History (could be an A if the Cold War exam goes tits up...)
    • A ICT
    • A Core Science (already have)
    • A* Additional Science (expecting it to border A/A* could go either side because I screwed up physics but I have a high ISA mark which will hopefully save me)
    • A Drama (had a weird examiner so no one knows how she'll mark - if she's generous, A*, harsh B and normal will get me an A)
    • B German
    • A/A* Philosophy&Ethics
    • A* statistics
    • Pass in sports leadership level 2 (had to change from GCSE PE due to health reasons meaning I wouldn't have passed GCSE PE)


    What's everyone doing to prep? I have work experience planned shadowing my surgery at one of the top three hospitals in the world for his specialty

    I think I want to do Medicine.. I don't know.. I'm really confused at the minute haha! Like, it seems logical from the subjects I'm doing, and I like sciences and I do want to help people, and it seems really cool and interesting, but I'm not sure. I would like to do something to help people in the longterm, like help cure a disease or something, but I don't know, is medicine the way to do that?
    As for predicted grades, I'm looking at pretty much A*s the whole way through everything, except maybe english lang and lit where I'm hoping for As and possibly RE if I don't start doing some work :P
    What are people doing for A levels? And also how did you get work experience and stuff? We're doing work experience in school in january, should I try to get something before that or not?

    This is my predicted grade:
    IGCSE CIE
    English Language B
    Maths A* (already done)
    Biology A*
    Chemistry A*
    Physics A*
    Business Studies A
    Music A*
    Chinese First Language A
    Additional Maths A*

    I am taking Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths in A level, but i am considering doing six modules on maths in one year because i have pretty much learnt the content on Core 1 & 2 before.
    I want to go to Cambridge/ Imperial/UCL to study medicine but then i realised that they all need BMAT which is veryyy risky. What universities are you guys hoping to apply?? I haven't done any working experience, but i have done some volunteering work and i will definitely do some shadowing/observing over the summer.
