    Hi there! Noticed that there isn't a thread yet for this years applicants. So have you written your PS yet, what are your predicted grades, any reason for choosing Bristol?

    Well done! As Bristol is PS heavy (80%) it is definitely a good idea to get as many people to proof-read it as you can.. What work experience do you have? Most important, why did you decide to pursue such a competitive career?

    Thanks I've done GP, neonatal and pediatric in terms of medical WE. Ive also done: 2 years voluntary St Johns Ambulance, 1 year 4th stage dementia ward, cooking in a homeless shelter in my holidays, and 2 schools for children with special needs (adding up to a year in total). I REALLY want to pursue medicine due to fact its an altruistic career with loads of contact with people, and I've always loved science (particularly biology and chemistry )

    What about you? What are you stats like?

    Wow, that's a lot of work experience! I've already achieved A*A*A* last year and went on a gap year to get a better insight into medicine. I shadowed a GP, worked at an ICU ward with a anaesthetist and finally with a research fellow at the same ward.

    My motivation is that I love science and the thought of using it to heal people and make a difference is thrilling and would be very satisfying.

    Haha, thanks. Super-smart: No, motivated: yes I am yet to do my UKCAT and tbh although I'm applying to a couple of other unis, I would only accept an offer from Bristol as I really like the course content.. You?

    As we said earlier it's only 20% marks and 80% Personal Statement, so your chance rest with your PS..

    Hi guys. I know that this thread has been dead for over 2 years but I have a question for those who are already studying med at Bristol. So I'm an EU student and although I got 3 interviews ,I've been rejected from 2 of them so kinda losing hope. Bristol sent me a rejection pre interview but gave me a place in biomed. Does anyone know weather they might allow me to transfer in med after a year? of course by re taking UKCAT and having good results from biomed?
