    I would love for one of my 4 medical applications to be at a London university (possibly UCL or Kings?) I'm just wondering if anyone is at one studying medicine and what it takes to stand out as I know it's highly competitive and what the different interview styles at each are and the style of course.

    I got 8 A*'s and 2 As at GCSE and am studying biology, chemistry, psychology and English literature. (I know some unis would really prefer if I was doing maths)

    Thanks

    Oxford and Cambridge aren't in London

    As has been pointed out above, you don't need maths.

    The rest of the info you're looking for e.g. course structure, interviews etc is all available on the med school websites e.g.:

    Sorry, I know they're not in London but they are around that area with very high reputations like the big London universities.

    The reputation thing is also really a non-issue...

    Scroll down to post 2125 on this thread to see a heated debate about this issue of medical schools with "better reputations". I think you may find it helpful
