    I plan to do Biological Sciences or Biochemistry at Imperial. My friend also wants to do Biochemistry at Imperial (if he feels his grades aren't good enough for Medicine). I am predicted better grades than him and have better GCSEs and better potential. I am also far ahead of him extra curricular wise. He wants me to bring him into my extra curricular activities relating to my desired courses. I do not what to do because he is my good friend of 6 years but I see him as competition to the already limited places for the courses that are available worldwide so would it be right to not help his chances? What should I do?

    As mentioned in your other thread, you should support them and help each other get into university. I wouldn't think you are good friends if you have to consider that approach of not helping him.

    If he wants to do the same thing, there isn't much that you can do or say because either way he is going to try and get in.
