    I feel like mine's awful lol

    I have lots of character space left but no line space to write a decent sentence.

    I felt like it. Esp cos I had just given him his milk and he ate some chocolate biscuits too. He was crying at the same time and wanted a hug and I was trying not to get my clothes dirty but felt bad so hugged him anyway.

    ahh that sucks. You gave her plenty of time tbh so don't feel bad. If she couldn't do one she should have told you. I really dislike it when people don't keep their word. :hugs:

    I would have considered the PA course but I don't have a science-y degree.
    Oh dear I know I've wanted to add one other thing in but you've just got to be so selective with what you include in it :/

    You're too sweet and kids are hard to say no to anyway

    Same here. If you can't do something don't agree to it. Oh well.

    I'm in 2 minds about the PA course. i just don't think I'd be happy being a PA and not a doc

    They are still funded between student finance and the NHS after year 1. So for the first year you would have to pay around £3000, the rest is then covered.
    thats great thank you! I was just checking because I know theres a lot of changes going on with health profession tuition fess

    Congrats and good luck! I would have sent mine but i cannot for the life of me decide between what to put as my last two uni options, it feels like Russian roulette.

    Thank you. I know it´s horrible. I gave myself the deadline of today and yesterday night I was in bed, unable to sleep, as I was still unsure which Uni´s to apply to. Ended up going with Warwick, Southampton, Newcastle and Glasgow.

    Well, best of luck trying to figure it out.

    So this what I've gone for..
    Warwick, Southampton, Kings and Barts.
    Ukcat- 743.3
    With a 2:1 degree

    I've submitted the application now, basically I was going to have Newcastle instead of Barts. But my friend got into Barts with a 2:1 and 750 last year and he said the Newcastle interview was horrible. So I thought Barts would be the better option.

    Any thoughts on chances with all this?
    If my personal statement is decent, it's all submitted now but I'm just curious.

    Ideally you have to show a sustained commitment to studying medicine, so start as early as possible before application. It may also help you to make your mind up.
    Thanks yeah I also don't do the standard subject though. I do maths and it is quite a 180 sort of and because I didn't do biology or chemistry I'm going to have to do the gamsat. I'm pretty smart so that doesn't seem to be too much of an issue the problem I have is when I'm supposed to get this all done while also doing my degree. I've started reading stuff and doing bits of bio and chem but it seems I'm going too slow. Don't have time for getting work experience either. It's alright to do it a year after my degree right?

    Taking a year out is absolutely fine. Also, you would have the entire summer to revise for the GAMSAT, so don't let that negatively effect your degree now. Even if it were a couple hours a week at uni, or a few days when home for christmas etc volunteering, it would look good.

    I'm thinkint about cutting stuff out but can't find much. And my introduction's been scrapped because it was too morbit.

    I don't know. I love it when kids hug me. Makes me feel so much better about myself lol

    That's exactly why I think it won't appeal to many wannabe medics. I think you'd have to be a certain way to want to be a PA. The entry requirements are pretty limiting too as not everyon has done a science-y degree. But tbh, if I was older, already had kids and wanted a job with a better work-life balance, being a PA wouldn't seem so bad. I just don't really want kids so a bad work-life balance doesn't put me off as much as it does for other people.

    I left it for a few hours came back to it and realised i had so much unnecessary stuff that was just taking up space and not doing much else. Have you managed to sort it out now?

    Haha any sorta of hug can have that effect :P

    I can't remember looking at the entry requirements just reading about what it sort of entails etc... but its a new course and maybe after a few years they may make the entry requirements broader? Dunno.

    Yeah kids are another factor to consider. :?

    I've spent bloody ages trawling through last year's threads to try and work out a timeline for when we might hear about interviews, etc. Need to chill.
    Applying to Warwick, Newcastle (grad and undergrad) and King's grad. Undergraduate predicted a first (although that's up for debate), 767 UKCAT.

    Yeah I think I'm going to give it an hour and go back to it. Might do something else in the meantime like watch TV.

    A lot of unis want a life science subject or something similar. It's not too strict tbh. Seems like it would be a comfortable career too. There just doesn't seem to be much career progression.


    What kind of voice has everyone gone for in their personal statements? I was trying to write in detail but my cousins says its too flowery so now I'm trying to make it more formal. Don't know if it wold be okay tho

    Does anyone have information regarding UK Medical School's policies on degrees obtained in the US?

    My degree converts to a 1:1 BSc (Biochemistry and Microbiology) and I obtained an average UKCAT score of 700.
