    have you got an interview yet ?
    Hey!

    No I decided to apply for audiology and optom instead because although I was really interested in medicine I was apprehensive that they wouldn't allow any modular retakes.
    So I'm just really interested about medicine and I am thinking of post grad at Notts.
    I know loads of close professionals and students who have completed Med school and tell me the grass isn't always greener on the other side but I'm just curios about Med school really 😜
    Shouldn't really be looking at decisions made in the past but I can't help it 😬

    Peace ✌🏻

    Hi guys!

    I was just wondering if the A104 course accepts students that have retook parts of there A levels in their gap year ie. I'm retaking some of A2 Biology and am curious if UEA accept module retakes for foundation medicine?!
    All the best with your applications

    Peace!

    Hey!

    I retook my Chemistry AS in my A2 year not my gap year. Other than that I don't know. It's really worth triple checking with the requirements for the course. I know I was super worried about that too.

    Hey!

    I'm loving it so far! The course is really great and the people are awesome.

    In semester 1 we did biology, chemistry, maths and medicine. Biology, chemistry and maths were equivalent to AS but a bit harder because they're trying to cram it all into the space they have. The lectures can be fast paced but it's a good way to get used to working at university. Maths, biology and chemistry are taught with a mix of lectures and seminars/workshops/labs but medicine is taught a bit differently. We do PBL. So each week we meet in a group of 8/9 to discuss the scenario for that week. We write our own learning outcomes and allocate them to each person. Then we produce work on our learning outcome and present it back to the group, so we effectively teach each other and revise together. We also have lectures aswell but it's more self-guided learning. The whole med school does it this way.

    This semester we just do medicine and further biology (Which is pretty much A2) and we just finished our SSS (student selected study) project. That's a presentation we give on a topic of our choosing. That's been my favourite part of the course so far. We also are doing our HCA training soon which is really really exciting. We get trained as a healthcare assistant and then we do three shifts. It's a really great opportunity to get some clinical contact and i don't think other foundation courses do anything like it.

    I'm from Norwich so I'm pretty biased about the city as a whole. It's really really lovely. Loads of independent coffee shops an cobbled lanes. Also has an amazing night life if that's what you're looking for. There's also loads of buses between campus and the city. I think they run every 5 minutes so there's good links to the city centre.

    Sorry for rattling on. I got excited.

    If you have any other questions, just let me or Yannis know
