Anyone applying to all london univiersities to read medicine for entry 2004?
Just wanted to talk to you if u are!
I will be applying to medical school for entry in 2004..am a bit worried though. Am definitely thinking of London (everyone wants to get into London)..but which you thinking of applying to?.. What work experience have you got under your belt and how were ur AS and GCSE grades?
I didnt know everyone wanted to get into London, on the contrary actually!
So far ive done a little work experience in a hopsital, but ive been doing volunteering work mainly.
For gcses's I got 9 A*'s and 2 A's. And for my AS's I got 4 A's in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths.
I want to apply to Kings, Barts, Imperial and Manchester/ St Georges
What about yourself?
anyone know if UCL has got less people applying to them dis year due to the introduction of the BMAT?
guy's, for anyone applyin to london med schools, make sure your UCAS form is sent off early, and I mean early so you atleast stand a chance of getting an interview. This is where the private/grammar schools win, because they prepare students alot more for the uni application process and they generally send off their application alot more earlier. If your college doesn't, do it yourself!!!
The reason I say this is beacause last year the unis became alot more stringent towards the end of the selection process because they accepted more onto the course at the beginning. There were rumours of students with perfect grades, work experience etc... who were not even admitted to interview. My advice: GET YOUR UCAS FORM OFF EARLY!!!
Conspiracies ----WOOO WOOOO BEEP BEEP (Kuz!), i hope that isnt true cos if so im buggered
I'm starting med school soon (QMUL) and i suggest that anyone who is considering appying to Imperial for medicine should reconsider. The medical school seems ideal because of the reputation, quality and so called prestige. Also the grades offered are reasonable ABB/AAB, but dont be fooled by that. They have like 20 applicants per place and most ppl who get offered a place are heading for 4/5 A's at A-level. Unless you are getting these kind of grades then dont apply there- the competion is far too fierce. I was predicted 3 A's, and though my gcse's werent great, i thought i had plenty of work exp and a good PS. Though I didnt even get an interview.
I dont mean to insult imperial or anything, if you really want to apply there thats ok. I just thought they were misleading into the expectations of any students they interview or offer a place.
Anyway good luck to everyone applying, be prepared for hell cuz its not an experience I'd like to go through again.
yea, i went to the open day and many of the students there had also had interviews for Oxbridge! So if you're good enough to be interviewd for oxbridge then your chances at imperial are good too.
Imperial is a really nice place, in South Kensington and just a walk away from Hyde Park....plus you can live in S.ken for £90 (in Halls) which is relatively cheap with regards to the rest of South Ken.
I think that if you want to apply to Imperial then go for it, theres always that saying about 'the greatest risks we take, is by not risking', or something like that anyway...just bare in mind, this is one of the UCAS choices!!!!!!!! lol
As for Barts, i think its a really nice friendly atmosphere with a good range of ppl. Excellent teaching and great job prospects!
