    Hello fellow to-be doctors of the world,

    Just as the year 13's have given in their application (good luck guys!), I thought it would be interesting to see what us year 12's are doing at the moment. So if you want to do medicine at either Oxford or Cambridge or Imperial, please state the following:

    What you got for GCSES
    What you've taken at A-level
    Predicted (A2 not AS) grades (only if you've been given them already)
    What grades you think you'll get
    Which University you wish to receive an offer from
    What work experience do you currently do

    Remember guys,this is just for fun, PLEASE DO NOT be downhearted if other people have got higher grades than you, also PLEASE DO NOT try to tell others that they're not good enough, as it is not all depending on grades.

    Lets see what we have to offer!

    Ok, so I'll start off.

    1. 10 A*, 1 B (english language)
    2. Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Physics and EPQ (equivalent to half an a-level)
    3. My expected grades for AS based on a national average of GCSE attainment is AAAA.
    4. I'm not being 'extra', but i think i can hopefully get A*A*A*A*, AND A* (EPQ) with hard work, and the help of God.
    4. I want to apply to Oxford (haven't decided on college) as 1st choice, and Imperial as Second.
    5. I currently volunteer on a weekly basis at a carehome.

    10A*s, predictions all As - maths, chem, bio, French
    applying to Oxford, imperial, ucl, Nottingham - lol I have to smash the bmat
    Also I went to a taster course by carpe diem scholars which was awesome, run by students from Oxford, Cambridge etc. Gives you essential info before applying and makes application stand out showing interest. Also try out Sutton and qmul but they weren't as good in my opinion, Id defo go to the carpe diem scholars one

    Hello fellow to-be doctors of the world,
    Lets see what we have to offer!
    Hiya! I'm glad that someone's made a thread for us 2019 entry lot, because there haven't really been any so far. (I mostly see threads by Year 13's applying now, and I wonder where all the people like me are.)

    In my GCSE's I got 10A* (Shock of my life hahaha)
    I study chemistry, biology, mathematics and AS psychology. I hope to do an extended project next year.
    My predicted grades are A*A*A*A
    I honestly don't know what I'll get as i've been struggling to get motivated lately. But I'd love to get at least 2 A*'s!
    I would die a very happy gal if I got an offer from Oxford. But really, I don't mind where I study medicine, I just want to study it.
    I have so far only done a week at the hospital as work experience but hope to do a lot more.

    I've looked mainly at Oxford but not that much at Cambridge. That's about it so far lol, might do some research over the holidays on different universities! Are you going to apply for a nuffield research placement over the summer?

    It’s something I’m considering but as they take up so many weeks, I’m still thinking about it. I’d like to be doing more hospital related work experience and other application preparation over the summer as well so don’t want anything too time consuming
