Results (I got some As!!!!)

I've held off for a while 'cause I've been 'crunching the numbers' and working it out. But thought for any pre-meds who were interested in my UMS and all that they'd be able to have a look. This will probably identify me very quickly but denial is a guy's best friend.

I took 4 A2 exams in Jan and 6 AS retakes.

A2 Exams
Chem 4 - B
Central Concepts (Bio) - B
Core Maths 3 - C
Criminal Law: Special Study Paper - A (72/80) !!!!!!!!

AS Retakes
Chem 2 - B
Chem 3 - B
Human Health and Disease - A (88/90) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Transport (Bio) - B
Core Maths 2 - A!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Statistics - B

Not as brilliant as I hoped but they are much improved from last year. I'm planning to do four retakes (Chem 1, Foundation, Core Maths 1 and English Legal System) in the summer and as long as I get As in both the retakes and A2 exams, it'll be fine. I'm going to be knuckling down, once again but first I've got to get coursework out the way. Fun times. I'm so happy though. First time I've gots As and bloody good As in A-level exams!!!!!

It's Official...

I have been rejected by all five of my universities. I currently have no place at university either this year or next (deferred). I still have Leicester floating around and I've been entered into Extra already so need to start planning properly. Hasn't hit me yet, give it a day and we'll see....

It's another rejection. Less than 24 hours after I was rejected from Exeter, St. Georges made their move. I understand their reasons though. I don't show enough enthusiasm for the course in my personal statement, which is true. I discussed the appeal of emergency medicine but neither the actual career of a paramedic. Surprised I didn't see that coming. Oh well. Four down, One to go.

Guess what...

Another rejection....
Exeter this time :(
They did it through UCAS this time. No letter or anything but fun.

Just waiting on Barts which is so odd. With a requirement of AAA, they technically should have rejected me straight away....

Course there is my backup but I'm not sure about it anymore. The course is three years instead of two and I'm just not sure. I really want to do medicine.

I've also decided I don't want to do the course at Leicester. It's going to be more competitive that normal medicine entry plus I hate the course. I can't get stuck on a course where the last year is pure research. I get bored of being in a lab for 5 hours with yeast. Can't do it for a year...
