    Defo interested in studying medicine at Manchester but I wanna know if it’ll be worth the move from Wales.
    I attained 1 A* 5 As 3 Bs and 3Cs and a btec qualification in music.
    However I’m not doing Chemistry as an A level so I know that automatically strips me away from the vast majority of med schools, but I realise that there are foundation courses available for ppl with wrong subject combinations. I’m studying AS level Maths, Biology and Psychology atm, am I suited for the Manchester course ???
    Best thing to do would be to email the admissions office with your academic profile and explain your situation. The foundation year/6 year programme may be an option, or you could study A Level Chemistry in a year, which may be a cheaper option, and then apply to the 5 year course.

    You will get a lot of well-intended opinions from people on here, but you would get the best and most reliable advice from their admissions team.

    If you're just wondering whether it's worth applying to Manchester then I'd recommend it, I did my first degree there. Manchester is awesome, I enjoyed it so much I'm applying to go back there to study medicine. I can talk about how good the medicine course is, but the university and the city are brilliant. I'd recommend heading to an open day to get a feel of the place for yourself.

    Hey guys I think I might have majorly messed up. When it said to select campus on the UCAS Form I selected no preference but I've seen on another thread that you should select Manchester if you don't want to be placed elsewhere? Will this be a problem? Thank you!

    Last year you had the choice of having a preference for Preston or no preference at all. I believe it’s the same this year so you can’t have a preference for manchester

    (I’m not 100% sure about 2018 entry tho but this was definitely the case last year)

    Aaahhh you're a live saver omg yeah it was just Preston and no preference I was thinking maybe I'd done something wrong to not have the Manchester option pop up but that's a relief lol thank you!

    I wrote one in detail but I don't think it really matters as long as you explain them well enough

    Hi all,

    I was wondering whether anyone knows what the provisional dates are for interviews? The website states early 2018, which is a bit vague, does anyone have a more specific time frame?

    Thanks!

    Does anyone know if we can use the same example for two of the questions. For example, can we use being an SJA volunteer both in the caring and teamwork section as it essentially involves both?

    There's nothing on there that says you can't, but I personally wouldn't

    I can't see any problem with using the same activity across multiple sections. I used my job across the teamwork and caring sections as it had relevance to both.

    I gave two examples for each section, so I used an example from volunteering and one from my job in the caring section and two examples of teamwork that showed different team dynamics from my job.

    As long as it's relevant and addresses their question then I think it's fine. It may just be worth including other examples as part of your answers so that you can show a range of activities/experiences if you have other relevant examples that you can use.
