hey guys, I am having a bit of a tough decision to make. I have got an offer from st georges which is AAA and one from lincoln which is AAB if i firm them. if i dont firm st georges then the requirements will be A*AA which would be impossible for me to get and i am currently struggling with getting 3 As in my a level subjects. i really want to go to st georges but i don't know if i should play it safe and firm lincoln instead. personally i really don't like lincoln as it is not lively at all and was my least favorite anyway as i dont wanna study at a uni for 5 years which i don't like but yet again i am struggling to get the grades. I am really stuck as of what to do so any advice will be helpful

Just firm SGUL and have lincoln as your insurance. Then you will still get into med school even if you get AAB, and if you get AAA you can go to George's

Hi! Does anyone know how do we proceed from here after receiving an offer? St George stated that more information will be sent shortly regarding the DBS check and health clearance but i’ve received nothing so far. Thanks!

I think someone said they received an occupational health form to fill in and they told me that around June time they’ll send more information about accommodation and more information on occupational health and then I think it was around September about enrolling

Hi,

Hope you’re keeping well! How is the course currently being affected by COVID-19?

Do you know if any of the occupational health forms or DBS material is being sent out? I’ve got my tetanus booster booked in and need to source a whooping cough vaccine from somewhere... I’m trying to get ahead of the game because although A Levels have been cancelled at the moment my qualification is insisting we finish the year, even without teaching! I’m likely to have a busy summer trying to get everything done.

Thank you, Amy

Hi Amy!

So unfortunately all teaching has been cancelled but the Uni is teaching through other methods such as online seminars and providing additional information to consolidate learning.

I would recommend emailing the Uni about the DBS stuff .. I imagine everyone is really busy right now with COVID19 but of course I understand your worries. But from experience, they usually send it out a month or more before the starting date. So yes you are wayyy ahead! But I wouldn't worry because I assume things may be a bit delayed. Also DBS does not take that long either.

Good luck with your exams, I know its tough to get through things without actual teaching but try and do the best you can. If any questions arise, I'm sure there are a lot of people at Student Room who would be able to help out. Or even speak to your school and see if you can speak to your teacher etc. Try and make the most of this situation, you are doing great!!

Hi!
Hope you are well and safe!
I'm an international student and I just firmed St. George's !
I was just wondering how flexible the uni would be regarding our final grades due to the cancellation of the IB and A levels.
For example, if we dropped a point or two, would our offer be taken away?

Thanks for all your help!

Hi!

I remember that when I applied for Medicine at St George's, the start date on UCAS also said 1st September and I think it seems to say it every year, but this seems just to be a generic date that UCAS puts in!

The start date for the 5 year MBBS is actually 21st September 2020.
Your link is exactly right student0299, nice work!

Did anyone go to the recent offer holder day? How was it? Did you see Horton Halls? Thanks.

Hi! I'm a student at St George's who lives at Horton Halls, so can certainly answer your Halls-related question!

Almost all of the 1st year undergraduate students at St George's choose to live at Horton Halls, so it is such a brilliant experience that you're all living there together (whereas at other unis, the students will be spread across different halls of residences).

It is a 15 minute walk from the uni, and everyone tends to walk with their flatmates or with their friends there and back everyday. You can also get an 8 minute bus (the G1) from right outside halls which drops you off right at uni, which is useful if it's raining.

The halls have 9 blocks: 5 of the blocks contain "standard" rooms (Blocks A-E) and 4 of the blocks contain "premium" rooms (Blocks F-I). The standard rooms are slightly cheaper per week than the premium rooms, but honestly, I've lived in both a standard room and in a premium room in the past, and both are good! All of my friends at other unis were really jealous of my halls when they came to visit, as they are so much nicer and more modern than halls at some other unis.

You live in a flat of between 4-8 students - each room (in both Standard and in Premium) has an en suite, which is an absolute dream when you're someone like me who likes her own space! You share a kitchen with the others in your flat, and the kitchen has a dining table in which people tend to use to socialise with their flatmates, and invite others round.

You can choose whether you want to live in a single-sex or a mixed-sex flat.

The standard rooms have a single bed, a desk with drawers, a wardrobe, a mirror, a radiator, a fan, book shelves, cupboards and a good-size ensuite with a sink, toilet and shower.

The premium rooms have the same, except the bed is a double bed and the mirror is bigger. The kitchen is also slightly more modern.

The kitchen (shared between the 4-8 flatmates) have a dishwasher, lots and lots of cupboards, two fridges, two freezers, two ovens, two hobs, two kettles, a microwave and a dining table with as many chairs as there are people in the flat.

One of the really good things (something that tends to put people's parents' minds at rest) is that there is a reception desk that is manned 24/7 by security, so no one can come into the halls unless they are accompanied by someone who lives at halls. It's really nice knowing that they are always there.

There's a Tesco Express just 30 seconds walk away as well, which is SO perfect. It's open 6am til 11pm, it's honestly so useful.

There are also several common rooms with sofas and flat-screen televisions, and a ping pong table.

There are photos available here at: https://www.sgul.ac.uk/study/life-at...s-of-residence

Happy to answer any questions about Halls that you might have!
