Are you gonna apply for medicine or other medical courses like dentistry, pharmacy etc.?
I'm hoping to apply for medicine.

Basically, I have not had an interview. I only recieved a letter that is conditional offer till I bring my GCSE results.
Roughly how long after you sent in your app do you receive an offer?

PS

i've added you on snapchat getting a group together sounds like a good idea.

Hi, Natasha,

I wanted to do the same course this year, but I don't even have GCSEs. So I haven't even tired. I will take the GCSE subjects that they require and hopefully, I can apply for it next year. I am envious that you are on your way now. Let us know how it goes. I wish you all the best!!!

Hi, I’m starting the Access to Medicine course in September. Looking forward too it, but the pressure to be perfect the whole way through it is quite intimidating. I hope there’s a lovely group of students so we can all help each other!

Hey just throwing my head above the parapet haha
I'm in the January start group for the Access course at TMC. They are AMAZING! The course is accepted at loads of universities, so don't stress. I think around 40% of the people from last year got some kind of offer, and Mohammed (the guy who runs it) has great links to lots of universities.
The support from the tutors is incredible. Especially the maths tutors. They have helped me SO much. Maths is my weakest subject and Peter has been so incredibly patient with me from day one.
The student support services are fantastic. They really do care about those of us who struggle with MH stuff (I have depression and other stuff) and are really great about helping out. Seriously amazing.
It's definitely an intense course, and there are times when it could get on top of you if you let it. But if you don't leave everything to the last minute you'll be ok. I've got straight distinctions so far and I've been putting about 70% effort in (don't tell the tutors tho ahahah). I would recommend getting plenty of UKCAT practice in NOW tho. Bette to get that over and one with before you launch into the course.
Happy to answer any questions you guys have.

Hi all,

i have recently applied for an Access to medicine course at The Manchester college. Whilst looking through TSR I can see that there are threads for every existing year apart from the current one!

So, has anyone else applied for entry this year?

Also, if anyone from previous years has any advice or tips, please let us know!😊

I'm super nervous because I have been in higher education before at Lancaster uni but left before the end of first year due to mitigating circumstances. However, this experience has enlightened me in what I really want to do: be a doctor. But I have so many worries about whether or not my mental health is strong and whether I will cope! Anyone else feeling like this?

Hi!

I am starting this course at TMC in September I hear it is meant to be very intense!

It's definitely had it's moments! Some times it's fine and you feel like you're doing brilliantly, and then times you feel like you're snowed under. Just keep on top of it all and you'll do just fine! Come and say hi! I'll be there until December
