All Medics Attention!!!! Important!!Watch
I might be saying something you all knew anyway, but medical schools, and most uni's for that matter, actually see our grades on the SUNDAY BEFORE THE THURSDAY THAT WE GET THEM!!
This means that they have time to go thru all their applicants and sort out who they want from those that don't quite meet their offer. This is based on your UCAS form and your interview.
The message - if you miss your offer DONT DISPARE because there is still a VERY GOOD CHANCE you are in! Afterall, they've interviewed you, met and know you. They'd rather pick you instead of someone from clearing (yes, you can get into medicine by clearing!), someone they've never met before.
WHEN YOU HAVE YOUR RESULTS, if you have missed your offer by a few grades CALL THE UNI STRAIGHT AWAY because they can tell u instantly whether or not you are in!
I hope I may have saved a few good doctor's careers out there!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!
