Holy crap that's so cool. I can only give 4 subjects in the school I'm in now but where do you live?
Actually most applicants get accepted with 3A's.

No it's only a requirement for the universities that ask for it.
Okay, thanks!

Hey everyone, nice to see some super keen people wanting to get into medicine!

I am a (soon to be) 3rd year at Cardiff medical school, and if anyone has any questions abut admissions, or medical school in general then feel free to ask away. There are loads of med students on this forum that will be very happy to answer any questions!

Hope you are all enjoying your summer break.

omg! I also live in Pakistan. I also started a threadasking people if I have a chance. To be honest I think we have a chance. My subject choice for A levels is biology chemistry physics maths and sociology. I will drop sociology in A2. I believe we need all A* in A levels to be strong applicants.
doing 5 a levels is a ridiculous idea and completely unnecessary
source: i just finished my a levels and got 3 offers for medicine

I watch cambridge medicine student's vlogs. There were videos regarding studies. They had 4A levels. Few cambridge colleges require 2A*2A for medicine. Like I said my main university goal is cambridge. Hence 4 subjects is what I really want to take. I am going to take AS sociology because its something I believe I should take and also I like it. On a short note I like all the subjects I'm taking.

Cambridge require A*A*A. There is no Medical School in the UK that requires 4 A-Levels.

If you're doing them because you enjoy them, however, then that makes more sense.

ok you do you and have fun with that
a levels are not like GCSEs and you will struggle with 5 even if you think a levels will be easy because you enjoy the subjects
getting the standard A*A*A is hard enough without additional subjects distracting you from the three you really need
also you may be given an offer depending on the number of a levels you took eg A*AAA instead of A*A*A which means you can't change your mind when it gets tough in the summer term 2019

Thank you for sharing this information. I will definitely look at my subject choices again. 😊

My goal is also Cambridge . I will take Physics , Maths , biology and chemistry
If workload is too much I'll probably drop physics sadly.

How long ago was it since you'd done GCSE physics? Overall it sounds like a good plan. I'm planning on buying the GCP GCSE Bio, chem, and physics books, and slowly go over everything. As it has been a while since i'd sat those exams.


Eh wouldn't you say its slightly too early for 2019 batch to start practicing the UKCAT?
I don't know I'm a little worried though because I think I may be rushed next summer

What did you guys get in GCSE?
36A*s, did them in reception, 34 of them were full UMS
Got 29A*s at A level, full UMS in 22, completed them in year 2
And I've just finished my PhD from Harvard after doing an Msci at Cambridge, during which I found the cure to cancer
Do you think I have a chance of getting an offer? I am really worried that my application isn't up to scratch.

geez
