Official Thread: (Undergraduate) Medicine 2019 EntryWatch
Ucl will probably change. But imperial and one between Cambridge and Oxford are definite
Edit: My other 2 choices will depend on my ukcat score next year.
That it at the moment.
Just wishing all of you guys getting your GCSE results tomorrow the best of luck
Remember you DO NOT need straight A*s/As to be considered for a degree in medicine!
Just don't want others to worry like I did after GCSEs about admission tests even though they would be like more than a year away. I've started making physics notes because I can't remember a thing from GCSE physics. Soon I'm going to be using questions from the 700q bmat book,questions from bmat ninja (though I'm not sure if it going to be same as past questions), tsa and bmat past papers. I'm aiming to write as many essays as possible because that is going to be my weak point. This is all spread out until November so I'm not cramming and doing just enough each day.
You all will probably be focussing on trying to get all the right work experience now in order go apply for Medicine. One thing I learnt from applying for Medicine last year is that some medical schools don't like the idea of 'shadowing'. You should be careful that the experience you're getting is a little broader than just shadowing. I've written a post about why shadowing isn't the most ideal and other types of experience that would be preferred. Have a read of it here:
My stats for the moment:
Work Experience: Care home, Volunteering at food bank, 1 week GP, Radiology open day, Mental health project - producer.
PS. don't worry about different unis, or studying for UKCAT at the moment. Pay all attention to A-level, and getting the best prediction you can
