    Hi guys!

    Are there any mature students that are attending access or route courses that have applied to Medicine to start next year? 😊

    Ooh thats good.
    I'm finding it interesting so far. Especially chem and bio. It's pysics that i find a bit tricky and my least favourite subjects thus far.
    But we just finished our first exams/assignments
    So hopefully got my first 9 distinctions
    How about you?

    Ah excellent! Where are you studying? Biology is by far my favourite subject. Ah we don't have any physics?! Touched on nuclear chemistry and we'll go into more detail later on but as far as I'm aware there isn't much physics at all! The sheer volume of information to remember is hard going but it's a fast paced course so I'm just studying as much as I can haha! Ooh! Well I hope you get them! I have Maths, Biology and Human Physiology on the 8th, 9th and 10th of November. Fingers crossed!

    I'm am studying at the Manchester College. Ah me too
    Yes we do, and i hate it. I'd rather have human physiology ahha. Oh thats so interesting , we have done structure and bonding and now proceeding to periodicity.
    Yes, thats definitely true. About The fast pace. I think at first you just have to get use to it and then you will get the swing of things.
    Thank you
    Oh it's coming close for you. Well hope you get them too 🤞🏾
    Which medical schools did you apply to?

    Cool 😊 Haha yeah same! I did a level 5 course a year or so back just to get some knowledge and understanding of biology and chemistry as I hadn't studied them before and we had to do physics as part of that course 😑 I love having a knowledge and understanding of physics in the context of space but studying it? Nope. Haha! Yeah that's it, once you get used to it it'll become easier. I think the fact that in the first two months you have to jump straight in at a high level and at the same time study and complete your UKCAT, apply through UCAS, write your personal statement AND prepare for the interviews you hope to get really makes it tough haha! Now that those things are over I can concentrate on the studying of the subjects. Thank you! 😊 I have applied to Aberdeen and Glasgow. Those are the only 2 universities in Scotland that recognise the Access to Medical Studies Programme as a route to studying medicine. I moved from Aberdeen to Glasgow to attend this course so it was Aberdeen I wanted to apply to anyway 😊 What about you?

    Ooh thats good. Ooh thas so good. I also applied to Aberdeen. I wanted to apply to Glasgow as well but didn't think my Ukcat would make it.
    So i applied to Bristol , liverpool and Aberdeen. But i'm ao hoping for an interview at Bristol and Aberdeen
    The waiting is another thing now hah

    Oh wow thats a big sacrifice you made there. All the best to you🙌🏾🙌🏾
