    Same's!! I keep on forgetting that I've applied as I'm doing loads of job apps as well as tons of night shifts! Reading lots of stuff that should come in useful at interview, keeping reflective diaries, perfecting my curry making skills and planning a beer pilgrimage to Belgium next month. Keep your heads up people

    The other day I realised I'll be away when the gamsat is released (unless they do it before mid Nov). And knowing that I will have little or no phone access is killing me. Just thinking that I might come back a couple of weeks later to a bunch of rejections or work experience/interview emails. :rolleyes:

    At least you won't be sitting there shaking and checking your phone every 5 minutes like an addict!

    Can someone help me please:

    I only just realized that there was an issue with the UKCAT website and that my choices didn't submit! Anyone know what to do/how bad this is seeing that the deadline has passed? I emailed them to inform them of this with my choices etc.

    I don't know for sure but I don't think it's that bad, it just might cause a bit of a delay for you. They had loads of problems a few days ago with submitting choices where people had to email them over instead so I guess there will be a delay anyway!

    Hope that helps x

    Question for any previous applicants (especially those for Notts), if successful in the GAMSAT and work experience forms are sent out, what cut off date do they use for relevant experience? Do they allow you to include everything done up until that particular date or do they employ a cut off, such as the UCAS deadline?

    I have a good chunk of WE already but have just got a new job as a clinical support worker working 1:1 with consultants all day, working in theatres and being trained in phlebotomy in a leading hospital so it would be great on the form. Also shadowing a consultant in ICU for a week next month. That would also be great on the form (but is mainly just for my own experience).

    Any knowledge?

    As far as I know there is no cut-off for W/E for Notts, just mention on the form that you plan on doing more work experience and will provide proof once done. The fact that you are actively pursuing more experience bodes well but generally at-least 70 hours of experience within the past two years including volunteer work (healthcare ofcourse) is the minimum. To (hopefully) ease your mind the fact that you're working in a healthcare environment is very good so if you have less formal W/E (I'm guessing from info in your question) I wouldn't worry about it too much. If in doubt call the admissions team, the Notts ones are especially helpful and reassuring.

    Thanks. The WE I already have should be fine anyway (Ward volunteer across a number of specialties for 2 years up to present at a leading hospital and full time HCA at another hospital across all the wards as I'm banking so lots of experiences) so I have around about 650+ hours technically but can always have more to improve my application. Just wondering if I would get the chance to mention the newer stuff on the form but I guess I'll just see.

    That's assuming I did well enough I'm GAMSAT of course and right now I'm more reserved to having not done enough and having to reapply anyway... I'll find out in a few weeks!

    Sames about GAMSAT...I'm trying not to think about it but I keep logging on in case they've written when the results are out...S3 is going to have ended it for me I reckon with GAMSAT unis.

    I am suitably distracted as I work full time in the City as well as my HCA job at weekends and the wait is still killing me!!

    Nope, UKCAT results don't go out to the universities until sometime in November. And ofcourse the GAMSAT results will be mid-November. Nothing will be dished out until after the unis have seen and sorted through these results.
