    and i'm sorry, but you're not very nice. calling someone a disgrace to the english language? what on earth gives you the authority to make a statement like that? especially considering that your english isn't exactly perfect; it's "your grades", not "you're grades".
    maybe the op's application isn't perfect, but that doesn't for one second give you the right to go and blast them like that, especially in such an arrogant and patronising manner. i suggest you learn some basic decency.
    You're just making things up now... :yep: Read my post again, I never wrote "you're" :rolleyes:.. lol no but really u've got a good point there I feel like such an idiot now :nopity: I'm sorry but she really pissed me off... she was taking the mick out of medicine and sorry i just can't stand that. 2 of my close relatives died during heart surgery and you get people like her comparing it to slicing pork!! :eek:

    I'm sorry if I hurt you and my apologies to everyone else who got offended


    As for the person who thinks I have an IQ of a snail, o well.. :yep: i guess i do howd u know?

    LOL

    Just cos you seemed to get a little too angry at her when she was clearly taking the piss.

    But I'm sure your true IQ is much higher than the average person.

    I'm sorry but you're a disgrace to both the English language and the field of Medicine. Are you out of your mind? You think you'll get into Oxford with a personal statement in which you compare slicing pork to performing heart surgery? And your grades... ABC in Textiles, English and Cambodian cookery? What kind of A-levels, if so, are these?? Did you not stop and think for a second that Chemistry, Maths, Biology, and maybe Physics would be useful??? Have you even checked the minimum requirements for medicine at the universities you're applying to? And why are you quoting your UKCAT score as a percentile? Are you taking the mick or smthn? :confused:

    saw your first post - is it odd that you were 18 at the start of october and are applying now in your last year of school yet i am 17 and in first year on a medicine course without skipping any years at school

    it seems strange to me that you are more than a year older than me yet i am further ahead educationally-wise

    How can you be 17 and a 1st year at uni?
    I'm the youngest person in my year and born on the cut off date for yr 13 [August 31st] and even I'll be [just about] 18 for my 1st year at university.
    Being 18 and in year 13 is normal by the way.

    The scottish education system is different to the english education system. That's why.

    I'm one year young too, but I skipped a year :cool:

    im scottish. our cut off date is 28th february so some people are very young. im only 20th november though so not too bad. half of my year left school aged 17 so it seems normal to me, it just seems odd that people who are a year older than me are a year behind education-wise
