    I applied in october 2015
    No im not an international student
    I think 1st of march is the last batch of interviews because they said they can't change the dates but not sure
    maybe you should call up and ask about your application
    Im studying maths chemistry physics as A levels and an AS further maths, I also have AS textiles from last year which is probably irrelevant
    Im predicted A*AB The uni requires at least AAB
    I got BBBD last year in AS
    what are you studying at the moment??
    Good luck btw i hope you do get an interview it'll be super cool

    I fitted in with the entry requirements but some universities require that the college you go to has to be under performing and my college isnt under performing so i got rejected. The entry requirements were AAB or below
    Yes i'll take a gap year and think about whether i want to do medicine for defo and try again and then i might pick up Biology as an A level and apply again in London maybe. Havent thought about it properly yet
    Thanks ill let you know about it after

    Biomedical sciences would be an extra 3 years which is too long and unnecessary for me as i only need some knowledge on biology so this course is perfect for me.
    II dont know what other course i would pick in UCAS extra so i'm not sure about it
    No im from london so its a long way away
    Are you from lancaster?

    I was the "kid" that came alone without a parent (I came from Denmark) My interview went decent enough, though I did screw up the most basic question of why I wanted to study medicine :P My mind just went blank :/

    But then the flow started and it went pretty well I felt, since I'm taking a year off, I have a lot of work experience which they seemed to like a lot.

    Which kid were you then?

    LOL sorry didn't mean to call you a kid
    Your an international student then im guessing??? I knew it, the international students had a long interview
    My one seemed sooo short and it was too relaxed, They asked me 6 questions and that's it
    the women forgot her questions and instead they asked if i had any questions and that was it. What did they ask you?? They asked why medicine, about my work experience and voluntary work, and questions on my overall reaction to situations. it went quite well can't really work out anything im just waiting....

    i'm the one who came with my mum, i was sat behind you on the sofas

    Yeah that makes me an international student.
    Mine was relaxed as well, and shorter than I expected. They too asked if I had any questions, about work experience, and reactions to situations. So the same.

    Just have to wait it out!

    Hi I know this sounds stupid and I really want to apply, but according to Lancaster's fact sheet on their website, you need to have 15 points for your first 9 GCSEs. A* or A= 2 points, and B= 1 point. I have a total of 14 points. is there no chance that i will get accepted? i really desperately wanted to get onto this course, and i meet all of the other requirements.
