those links are incredibly helpful.
wow you really did some preparation.
Learning about the NHS
I don't know whether this link has been posted before but it's quite useful for learning about the NHS in preparation for the interviews:
Nice set, slightly excessive though.
Wow! that wud hopefully improve my ps. Thanks
hi cat just been looking at your comment there. seems a while back! im an irish physio in newcastle .was just wondering what uni's you ended up getting offers in as i assume we have similar backgrounds!
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."
is makey backey?
Lol, not quite yet. Will be prowling around for FY1 application stuff in the next few months though...
This thread is legendary...
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.
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
You've heard it before but THANKS SO MUCH FOR THESE!
There are some awesome ones!
I went to Potmed last year organised by "Imperial MuslimMedics" they had some amazing help on Personal statements
you should google them, the event is at the end of this month

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.
This website has a useful page on personal statements, as well as lots of people's personal experiences and 'rate your medical school' on the blog: Personal Statements « Fastbleep Schools
All these links are amazing! Thank you so much guys
