i mean teesside high school - the school we all love to hate on teesside.Macca there is ne way on earth that i'm a poshie from teeside lol but thanx u too I guess its chem that peops interested in anyway aint it.
Which unis did you apply for in your gap year? Brighton and peninsula are the only ones I know about which don't really mind resitsI missed my grades last year, re-took my a-lvls and now am joining med school in sept. I fink its a lottery, it depends if ur willing to take the risk, everyone told me jus go uni but i wntd 2 do medicine. I worked hard for a year, quite alonely boring year but now im on my way to my chosen profession and am going to enjoy it to the full.
I got ABD in my Alevels first time round, was predicted 3 As, really messed it up.. then i re-took and reapplied, sent off a few letters explaining my mitiating circumstances. I got an offer from leicester without having to do the UKCAT or interview again, and got interviews from keele (offer) and leeds (declined interview, as already had offers and thought somone else deserved the place more). Now i've just finished my first year at leicester, and I feel that the gap year has helped me gain a lot of maturity, as it gave me time to reflect on everything. Yes, it was dificult seeing all my friends at uni while I was stuck retaking, but I definitely made the right choice for myself.Hi,
I needed AAA, but got ABBB so quite naturally I was rejected by Durham I know that there is about 20 pgs of this i haven't read yet but I really don't no what to do. I'm also sick of people congratulating me that I got good grades lets face it I didn't do good enough, I resat so many modules trying to pull up my grades where I narrowly missed out nd as a result in chem I was 4 ums marks away from the A. I honestly feel that I did my best nd resiting the modules wudn't b in my best interest personally...
So basically this means either a) gap year (which was my original back up) or b) do a degree in sumthing else (my parents favourite)
Id love to do a gap yr but i'd need alot of money, which i dont have nd cudn't get grants cos there gay (not really its just parents earn just above all the thresholds... but I was SO excited about starting uni nd moving out ect. But i have little idea what I want to do now and clearing has given me little inspiration. I do have an insurance offer at edin bio sciences but I really don't want to do it.
I guess there are international universitys but i dont no alot about this???
Well I got those exact grades at AS and I got into Leicester. I dropped my C and improved my two B's to A's in year 13, but if you work a little bit extra hard this year with a good PS and lots of work experience etc., then you should have as good a shot as any.Im an international student and i just saw my AS level results....ABBC..i would like to apply for medicine but i dont know of any unis thatll accept my grades.....could u suggest any?
Apply outside of London..hey, i got aabb, qm won't allow me in with these grades since my offer was aaa. I don't know what to do since they don't allow resits unless u have extenuating cirsumstances and they won't allow me in with these grades next year. I don't want to apply out of london but all the london unis don't allow resits and they all want aaa! what shall i do?
I know Leicester has a transfer thing for biomed students!2) Transfer --> Risky, be prepared to do the course as transer unlikely. Some heard of are:
Clinical Sciences Bradford - Leeds Medicine
Biomed St Georges - Medicine St Georges
Biomed Newcastle - Medicine Newcastle
*May be others Im not aware of.
3) Grad Option --> Very difficult, bit of a lotto depending on tests such as GAMSAT and UKCAT. Grads also apply for the 5/6 year entry which just as good. Still harder to get onto then a normal school lever.
If your going to go down this path....
-Biomedical Science -- Do it only at an accredited University. (Check with IBMS...dont assume. for example KCL, QMUL, M'cher are not accredited and you cannot be work)
Ah do you mean because you can work as a biomedical scientist and earn so you have the finances to do medicine? Yes I agree that would help!Thanx Drneuro...good to see people adding to the list
Sorry if I caused a confusion, whilst its not a criteria to have your Biomed accredited, I would advise it as will help financially if you go to uni 2nd time round.
