Glasgow Medical student here,
We have 2 sessions of PBL a week, a brainstorming session at the start of the week and a feedback session at the end. To supplement this, there are various lectures that now support the topic area covered in PBL. So, Glasgow has shifted from heavy PBL to more of an integrated type, where PBL is important but is now supplemented by lectures and labs!
That's sound really good move - at least suit me better :-). How about patient exposure so far ?

There hasn’t been any so far, but in November right through to May, there are various visits to GP practices, where you meet patients and interview them, you visit an A&E department to learn more about A&E, the role of triage nurse and how it works, and you visit a hospice too, so patient contact is relatively early, with it being in first year

Have not looked at the data, but all med schools make more offers than they have places, to allow for those that decline and those who do not make their grades

I've applied but not received a confirmation yet too. All the other uni I applied had acknowledged my application though.

Do you guys think a UCAT in the 78th percentile is competitive enough for Glasgow this year considering their previous stats?

I think if your UCAT score is reasonably above previous year's min score, you should stand a good chance provided your other aspects like gcse, predicted grades and WP are also strong.

That's true, yeah I'm unsure since I think I'm on the cusp as I'm above the minimum score they used last year for interview but under the RUK applicant cohort by 10 points . I'm a graduate and I do have the degree which meets their minimum requirements for that. Just really unsure!

Hmmm... If you think it is risky (and I share your sense of uncertainty), then perhaps you should consider it with your other choices. I think if your other choices are relatively safe, and you really like Glasgow a lot, perhaps it makes sense to take the risk. Otherwise, I think it will be better to apply to a uni that gives you more certainty. In the end, I feel it's more impt to be accepted and have the chance to study the subject. A doctor is a doctor, her mission is to treat patients, which school she graduated from is less impt if you ask me

It might be that women are just better applicants

Just fyi oversea students got in with 2600, Scots/eu with 2650 and ruk with 2680. I got 2610 last year and didn’t get an interview as I’m a Scottish applicant. So it’s depends where you come from as well as how your cohort do.

Thank you for the upload. As an international, I'd like to know why is it showing 40 places for 2019 when their website is showing 18 places available only?

They made 88 offers to internationals, based on a rough estimate of 14 meeting their conditions. Each year, things can change, so many more internationals met their offers this year and UCAS agreements state that the university must take you if you fulfil the conditions of an offer. I’m not sure but that’s what I think
