Well, I dunno you know, academic results aren't really relevant as long as you have compassionate feelings towards others and have watched Casualty a few times.
Well having neither, I think he is more deserving of a place. Danny_AQA, can you give me your contact details? I'll ring Cambridge on Monday so that you don't have to pay all that money to some place in the middle of nowhere.

heck, she didn't know what an ECG was either.

To be honest, no amount of voluntary work and what-have-you can make up for a basic lack of intelligence. If someone can't cope with A-levels (getting 3 As at A level is not exactly a challenge now..), they are likely to struggle with med school, unless they somehow metamorphose between leaving school and starting uni.

Personally, I think there are plenty of people applying who have both the academic results and the work experience, volunteering, vocational outlook etc required. There's no need to pick people who don't excel in both.
It gets worse... when told by annoyed interviewer that it was an electric cardiogram, she was like 'what? what does that do', then he mentioned the cardiac cycle... and she blurted out- whats myogenic?

She is however 6ft1 and has done loads of modelling work. Does anyone think this might have helped her?

Heck, I did some stupid stuff in my interview (not for medicine), and I'm ugly as.. a word I am not allowed to say on here. Maybe my interviewer was on drugs?

Have you gone through the process yourself of applying to medicine? What are you studying at the moment.

Um, no, that's why my interview wasn't for medicine. I'm studying biology.

If you are so confident of getting AAA, why don't you have the guts of applying to a local uni? I am sure that if you exude brilliance, like you, no university would pass up an opportunity to enrol you.

Don't call yourself a 'tard. There's one person on this thread I would call a 'tard, and it's not you, hon!
