Hello Everyone and Welcome to My New Blog

I had so much fun making my blog last year that I have been persuaded to do another one. It is probably going to be more of an occasional update type thing as opposed to every week as I doubt I will have the opportunity to update more than that - being an adult seemingly looks way busier than I could comprehend and studying medicine isn't exactly going to lend itself to lots of updates if I want to do anything outside my course .



The Stats ( I know it's overrated and frequents most blogs but it might be useful for someone)


GCSEs: Biology - 9, Chemistry - 9, English Language - 9, English Literature - 9, Geography - 9, History - 9, Mathematics - 9, Physics - 9, Religious Studies - 9, Spanish - 9
A levels: Biology - A*, Chemistry - A*, Mathematics - A*, Extended Project Qualification - a*
UCAT 2019 for 2020 entry - VR - 640, DM - 710, QR - 740, AR - 770, SJT band 3 (my score was in the top decile for my year)
Unis applied to: Bristol - MBChB, Exeter - BMBS, Newcastle - MBBS, Norwich - MBBS
Decisions : Bristol offer , Exeter offer, Newcastle offer, Norwich offer

In the end I firmed Bristol and when on results day I met my grades my place was unconditional firmed.


About Me



When I looked over my last blog I realised I hadn't really said much about me so below are 5 facts
1. I am from the South of England - I live in the home counties and my parents families are both from South London
2. I'm left handed as are my mum, dad and sister
3. I'm vegetarian
4. I am a bit addicted to studying
5. I probably drink more coffee than most people my age because it's just so good



My Plans for the Year


1. Hopefully pass the first year of uni (I have completely got imposter syndrome and don't think I'm really good enough to study medicine - I thought my offers were all mistakes and my grades. Luckily I know that lots of people struggle with this)
2. Meet new people (perhaps harder due to Coronavirus than in previous years - especially when in person socialising is more my scene than the internet)
3. Not completely lose touch with my parents
4. Get my parents to accept that it is highly likely entering uni that you will be average or below (I accepted this a long time ago but they really need to change their expectations)
5. Actually manage to do all those responsible administrative things that I now have new found respect for my parents for managing




I hope this is everything for now

I think I’ve done it. It’s interesting to know whether people are left handed!

Thanks! I’ve not come across many left handed people- the struggle though 😂 (especially writing in ink)
