    I think (not entirely sure, depending on my reference etc.) that my UCAS form can be sent off today. I've been fiddling around with my PS and various unimportant sections on apply (like work) for the past hour or so, which is very surprising seeing as a week ago I had a PS that was 4000 characters too long, no reference and I was ******** myself about it.

    Needless to say, I've pulled my finger out since then, and it could well be on it's merry way this afternoon (I hope).

    Ah I'm freaking out. I have my personal statement and referance ready to go but I haven't decided on my final choice. Basically I only qualify for PMS and Bristol 6 year (and possibly som other 6 years). I love Bristol but I don't know that I would be willing to spend another year that I could use to do an intercalated degree going over things that I feel I have a good grasp of/ could pick up in a few weeks. On the other hand Exeter and Plymouth are 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours away and I don't think I want to be that far away from home, plus I don't like the idea of a completely PBL course. I could of course use the choice for a non- medicine choice but it seems silly to "waste" a choice... AHHHHHHH

    PLB? If you mean PBL, no that's not the reason.

    Newcastle and Manchester have had their course codes as A106. It is the same course. Medicine, that is.

    Finally sent it off! I think my personal statement is pretty strong and I know my reference is so I'm just hoping for interviews now. This is going to be like last year - constant track checking (by the way last year they didn't give you immediate notifications by email to say track had been updated, I think they did it every few hours so checking track constantly isn't that bad!)
    Good luck to everyone- apart from my competitors

    You just click on the "track progress" button on UCAS then enter your details then it will tell you the status of your applications

    this is what mine says when i log into "apply"... mine was sent off on saturday:

    Your application has been processed by UCAS. You will be sent a welcome letter and will then be able to log in to Track, which allows you to check the progress of your application. You will need your Personal ID number and the username and password you used when making your application.

    Its meant to be you simply talking about the project not giving a big lecture! My presentation is done and looked at it today and i was pleasantly surprised! I've re-read my presentation and just comfortable with speaking one on one with someone.
