    Just wondering if those who are looking at physiotherapy courses for a 2017 entry, have looked at universities with the requirements of ABB. Im predicted AAA but i want to have an idea about something more realistic. Also has anyone done any NHS based work experience and has an information on what they did there?
    Thanks

    Yeah, i'm looking at a range of entry requirments from AAB ro ABB just in case. I've also done work experience in an NHS hospital it was clinical and i was shadowing a few physiotherapists, in all areas e.g. Hydrotherapy, respirtory ect.. Where they interacted with patients and at some points i joined in (e.g. Doing the same exercises a patient was doing).
    we shown shown and explained everything they do and why throughout the day.
    If you get the chance make some contacts by getting their email addresses ect.. For help with UCAS statements or for future work experince

    sounds great, what kind of entry requirements are you looking at? Also do you have experience in sports related physio or doing PE qualifications?

    Hi, I'd be looking at anything up to AAB - I already have A*AB at A Level, I just need to get my biology on top of that. And no I don't have anything sports related at the moment.

    Yeah I have! I was predicted AAA but I think I'll get AAB to be honest (I'll be a gap year student) Hopefully having just the minimum grades isn't too much of an issue though?? Does anyone know? I mean so long as all your other things are good (ps, work experience etc), would "only" having the minimum grades they ask for matter?
