    Judging by the way (s)he types in their posts as well I really doubt they're the person they claim to be (5A*s at A level, 11A*s at GCSE, Head boy, etc.)

    90% of users who post in the medical forum are elaborate dupes of Helenia and Hygeia, who like to troll these parts.

    I'm sorry, you've not sat AS yet but I told you not to reapply? Nice.

    I'll say what I want. Quote me in the thread where you have a problem with my suggestion and I'll deal with it there.

    Hi I'm in Year 11 so I'm not sure about these things,

    Your Grades seem pretty great, do you know why you didn't get any interviews, was it because your UKCAT and BMAT are low,(I'm not sure if they are, I don't really know the average results) or was it your personal statement??

    Thanks

    EDIT: Sorry I JUST REALISED THAT IT SAYS NO DISCUSSION, CAN THE MODS MOVE THIS ????

    CHEERS, SORRY

    Oxford was because of the BMAT/GCSE scoring.

    Imperial who knows - I met the cut-off but they still rejected me.

    Sheffield because of the UKCAT cut-off

    Nottingham - who knows.
