    Your grades are good and you're clearly very fond of your subject. You'll be fine! :yep: Glasgow is a beautiful uni (or, at least, the bits that I wandered around photographing were )
    Ooooh thank you :daydreaming:

    What is it about the choice you're finding difficult? It seems an odd pair of subjects to be torn between, I suppose. If you can find some way to accomodate both (with your PS and whatnot) then it'd be excellent but personally I wouldn't risk it. That's just me though.



    "gies a hawn wae ma subjects"?

    :awesome:
    *long winded sigh*
    I've thought about doing sciences at uni since about second year but I don't like the lab work.
    Only discovered a 'passion' for english last year with the higher (although I wanted to be a writer from 7-12 years old :rofl: ) and I actually prefer AH english to AH biology.

    Thanks for the suggestion. :rolleyes:

    And AH English is similar to 1st year English at university. Which brings us to...

    edit: Eureka moment. What are your career aspirations? Would you be happier working in a science environment for the next 30 years?

    Urgent help required so I'll quote.

    Question: Do you think if I did my personal statement geared towards biomedical science with a little bit shoved in for english, I would get rejected for english (Aberdeen and Glasgow) even though I've got the grades (or more) for the course. And also, would that jeopardise my chances of getting in to biomedical science (Aberdeen and Strathclyde) at all?
    [/panic]
    What did the admissions people say when you e-mailed, any help?

    Personally, I would write it for just the one subject especially since both are really popular and competitive courses. There is no harm in mentioning your passion for english (I breifly mentioned history of art in mine and it did no harm :p:). It could effect chances however at the likes of Strathclyde but Aberdeen seems to be more lenient. I've also spoken to two friends doing bio med and they are sticking to science related modules which are recommended along with the degree.

    With the Aberdeen course, biomed has 80/120 credits already filled leaving just two other module options, however it highly recommends: medical science in sports and exercise physiology and applied sports and exercise physiology to make up the extra 40.

    You probably already new that but oh well :p: Here's the link: http://aberdeen.ac.uk/sms/documents/bio_sci.doc

    What has your guidance tutor recommended?

    thanks for the reply.
    Haven't got a reply for the email yet but I only sent it yesterday so might be a few days yet.
    As for my 'guidance' tutor, he hasn't actually given any guidance even though he knows the situation.

    "Alert"? :p: How was it for you? :sexface:

    I went to see the Admissions woman for English Lit and she told two people in front of me that they basically had no hope of getting in. :indiff: One was because he didn't have a foreign language GCSE, and he was reallllllly posh so had obviously come pretty far for the Open Day, but was a really nice guy because he was like "Oh, um, er, well, that could be a problem! Oh well! "

    She looked up my school to tell me how likely I was to get a place, and she said it was "a bit of help" I was surprised she was so positive when I told her my situation because she'd crushed the people before me.

    However, the prospectus says I need BBBB, website says AABB, admissions woman said AAAA. :confused:
    I like the campus even though it is quite spaced out. Didn't really spend that much time there, about an hour perhaps. The rest of Edinburgh Uni didn't really impress me, I think if i went there, I would end up killing one of the "posh" students.

    Does anybody have any unique and innovative ideas for a short story?

    I've written, what I consider, 3 kickass poems. And 1 lame poem.
    Written a solid reflective piece.
    Half-way through a short story (prose)
    And need ideas for my second short story/prose...

    Anybody got a cool concept which can be unique either story-wise or in the way in which it is written? :awesome:
    Something religious? Someone wrote a story about an evil priest ... :lolwut: Crime, horror, fantasy, fan fic?

    I need to write a Personal Reflective for tomorrow and I don't have any ideas for once.
