Neuroscience Applicants 2018 - where are you applying?Watch
What subject(s) are currently studying?:
Predicted A2 grades:
I'm a gap year student so I already have my grades, I got A*AB (psychology, chemistry and biology)
I'm thinking of applying to Manchester, Nottingham, Leeds, Bristol and KCL, wbu?
What subject(s) are currently studying?: I'm taking an Access to HE - Science course, so studying bio, chem & maths.
A-levels see sob story above
GCSEs were a decade ago, so not really relevant anymore!
Why Neuroscience? I was interested in psychology, then started becoming more interested in the biological underpinning than pure behavioral study. I have a pet interest in models of neurodivergence, as that's where I started out in my reading, plus I'm autistic myself. Apart from that my curiosity is pretty broad!
What subject(s) are you currently studying?: Brace yourselves... biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, Dutch, English, French, philosophy and music.
Grades: Well I'm not from the UK sooo... I'm planning to get an 8 on my Dutch VWO and with that I'd meet at least the minimum entry requirements for the universities above.
Why Neuroscience?: Because I like science, but also because I think the human brain is one of the most fascinating things in the universe and there's so much we've yet to find out!
What subject are you currently studying? Access to HE Science (Biology and Physics)
GCSE grades: None I'm too old for GCSEs
Why Neuroscience? Why not? Plus it's really really interesting and I have personal experience of a good few neurological conditions that I fancy having a go at curing 😁
What subject(s) are currently studying?: biology, chemistry and math.
Predicted A2 grades: AAA
AS grades: ABBCC
GCSE grades: 4A* and 2A
Why Neuroscience? The original plan was Medicine, but AS grades are not good enough. So I found neuroscience and fell in love with it.
University choices: so far I've only choosen Aberdeen because theirs is the only course offering neuroscience with psychology (as far as I know).
What subject(s) are currently studying? Nothing - on gap year
A2 grades: A*A*A*A in bio, psych, eng lit and chem (Already have them)
AS grades: didnt do any, all my courses were linear
GCSE grades: 5A* 7A
Why Neuroscience? really like psychology and biology and seems a good blend of them both whilst encompassing a bit of medicine
What subject(s) are currently studying?:Biology, Chemistry, Psychology
Predicted A2 grades: AAA
GCSE grades:1A*,3As, 6Bs
Why Neuroscience? The Italian Neurosurgeon doing the head transplant inspired me ngl, also really interested in learning more about neurodegenerative diseases and brain tumour effects on the nervous system
What subject(s) are currently studying?: Biology, Chemistry, English
Predicted A2 grades: A*A*A
AS grades: A*A*A
GCSE grades:10 A*
Why Neuroscience? How could one not want to study Neuroscience, really?
What subject(s) currently studying?: Biology, Psychology, PE & EPQ
Predicted A2 grades: AAB (A* EPQ)
AS grades: I didnt take any - all of my courses are linear.
GCSE grades: 4 A's, 7 B's, 1 C
Why Neuroscience? I find sleep so interesting with all of the biological rythms and hormes changing overtime, so I thought to carry on my interest and a potential career in research that Neuroscience was a good path to take.
