    objectively would mean that the grading would measure up to scientific scrutiny... hmm as you say 2nd attempt (my 3rd)

    I think subjective is more the word you're looking for - sorry not really nit picking
    I'm trying to say that it's a human looking at another's work and therefore will be interpreted as an individual response to the criteria set - especially the non-academic one on 'literate and articulate'...

    hmm, Newcastle - now how long have you got

    "You have one day, what would you change in the NHS?" - my reply hilarious!

    tbh, I thought it didn't matter as actually going there is near impossible. then, nerves kicked in and I was off...

    we'll see in March, along with Soton

    do Southampton tend to prefer people with odd A levels (e.g. music, french, chemistry, bio) rather than the traditional bio,chem, maths and physics? because Ive seen many people with music and languages getting into Southampton A100.

    my UKCAT was 590 and i got my offer in january

    and yes fizz all unis like to see a range of alevels...mine were bio,math,chem,greek,french and classical ballet upto grade 8

    You get into to medical school with basically good alevels showing you're clever and hard working, lots and lots of work experience showing you're truly interested and commited a well written personal statement and extracurricular interests OTHER than medicine.
    The best UKCAT score is over 600...
