Buying Gold Standard
Think anyone buying this book should be aware of this as a matter of principle! The Discipline Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario heard this matter at Toronto on April 11, 2005. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Committee delivered its decision and order in writing. The Committee found that Dr. Brett Lennox Ferdinand committed an act of professional misconduct. The Committee also found that Dr. Ferdinand is incompetent. ' cpso.on.ca/public-register/doctor-details.aspx?view=4&id=%2073208 (Source: New Media Medicine)

Mature student in Scotland 2:2 degree....need advice
Hi guys. I graduated in 2009 with a LLB (Honours) degree with a 2:2; which was disappointing but given that I had been a very serious accident in my 1st year of uni (that left me three months in hospital and with permanent health problems as a result) had endured a lot of invasive surgery and pain; I thought that it was still a solid degree and a solid achievement. Regrettably it would appear that this is a sentiment not shared by medical schools, and the reason for this is that it would seem that they only consider your 1st degree and nothing else. That is their perogative and although this is frustrating and disappoint...

Evening / Weekend A Level Classes in London?
Hi all I am a 29yo full time professional working in London and want to take the Chemistry A Level. My first instinct is to self-study, but I was schooled abroad so never took any A Levels. As such, I think it may help to attend some sort of structured class. The issue is I work until 7-10pm or so during the week, so can't make most evening classes. This can be flexible, but I certainly can't make 2x630pm classes per week (Campbell Harris). Does anyone know of anywhere that offers later classes, once a week classes or weekend classes? Or should I just self-study? Thank you! (Source: New Media Medicine)

Implications of 2015 Budget on Graduate Entry Medicine
'Currently, students from families with annual incomes of £25,000 or less get the full grant of £3,387 a year...from 2016/17 academic year, we will replace maintenance grants with loans for new students...' [BBC] So it seems that in years 2-4 the tuition fee grant will be replaced by a loan, adding an additional 10K of debt onto the cost of GEM. Is this correct? And is there any other impications in the budget that could affect GEM courses? Many thanks. (Source: New Media Medicine)
