    yes i'm very interested, in fact dying to do it. but it seems near enough impossible. . it's like any uni that will accept me, i will go, even if it's in the scottish highlands.
    what course are you doing and where?

    My biggest problem is that I retook my as-year, so i am basically spending 3 years at college and (medical) unis hate that.

    okay im going to be straight up with you but unis dont accept retakes for med or so i have heard BUT there is brighton university who do accept retakes but onky if you have the grades, also retaking as isnt that major but idont know ask the unis you want to go to, also there are many other ways to get into med for example st georges has a scheme where you stduy biomedicine for 2 years and then if you get a first in the two years then u get to sit an interview for there medicak course i already know someone who got in through this way, also there are access courses where the medicine course has a foundation year so 6 years in total and the entry requirements are much lower so theres another way

    what course are you studying now?

    im taking a gap year before i go to uni only because i made the mistake of choosing to do med when ididnt want to and ended up not getting in, have a good think about if u want to do it or not like are you actually into it or dont bother because if it isnt whats truly in your heart then u wont get in because when interviews come around youll not do so well since interviewers can see straight through you

    BUT



    if you do decide to do it then feel free to ask any questions

    I did apply for this course last year, got rejected because I have done a Diploma before, I got accepted to Durham foundation and now going into year 1. Unfortunately Durham are stopping the course but if you have interest in medicine don't let this put you down

    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.
    Wasn't that for people who applied directly to medicine? For foundation you only need 10 points i think but check again to make sure. Gd luck

    I did pretty bad as well (4-3.4-2A) but, considering my school almost didn't allow me to take the bmat until i convinced them like a week before, it's not too shabby

    Thx. I applied to UEA and Kings for foundation med as well and I'm predicted ABB. My GCSE's were pretty average as well. I really don't think I'm going to get in this year but we'll see....

    Why did your school not let you?
    That's not right

    Because it's a big risk since u apply before u get ur results and it's a very difficult test so, coming from a below average skl, it was unlikely i'd get a gd result
