    May as well plug Medical Admissions - Getting you in...:
    Visit Medical Admissions : Homepage
    "Our aim is to widen access to medicine and by doing this we hope to increase the number of successful applications of students from a wide range of backgrounds, thus encouraging a breed of doctors who have a greater understanding of the diverse culture in which we now live."

    Regards,

    :(




    the Loora Spence quote is a really poor opener for that website, mate.

    its not like loads of people dont get rejected wif only predicted grades.

    Loora Spence was used as a political tool, you know, i'd dump that title page if i was you, it belittles MedicalAdmissions.

    new site

    Hey guys you have completely missed out My Medical School. Its a new site which is composed of med student reviews of med schools and descriptions of their experiences of applying.

    You can also see their personal statements and profiles. Its pretty good :)

    Follow me on twitter - @1medstudent

    I'm a third year medic tweeting through medschool - nothing confidential is disclosed though!

    Might be of interest to those trying to gain entry into medschool :)

    Not sites on helping to get into Medicine, but I reckon everyone could do with being able to say they've read something a little different to New Scientist (not that I don't love NS!):

    - You can register for free to read Student BMJ online. The tone is easier to understand than the BMJ, and it never hurts to read around what's happening in Medicine at the moment.
    Student BMJ: The International Medical Journal for Students

    - London medical students have their own student newspaper, but anyone can read it. Even if you're not applying to London universities, some of the stuff they write about may be useful.

    Issuu - medicalstudentnewspaper's Profile


    - Junior Doctor magazine is written for and by (you guessed it!) junior doctors, so the tone might be a little harder to follow than the stuff aimed directly at students, but it could be worth having a look at this as well:
    Read the latest issue of JuniorDr


    You can register free to read the BNF (British National Formulary, not a magazine but a reference book for licensed drugs in the UK) online, too. Not really useful for applicants unless you're a hardcore pharm nerd keen to impress with your knowledge of drugs, but since it's a free resource I thought I might as well share it.
    NO COOKIES
