Accomodation for families vs. commuting
I've been invited for Interview for SGUL so have been investigating the living situation as I know it can be a nightmare to find something suitable in London. By the time of entry I will be looking for family accommodation that will allow a dog. From a quick search this looks near enough impossible, or incredibly expensive. If anyone currently studying there could help that would be amazing! A few questions: What sort of cost would it likely be for accommodation for us? What are the timetables like? (another possibility is a very long commute everyday from Doncaster!) Are there any cheaper options out there?? Thanks! (...

Slightly confused about the about the application process and GAMSAT
Hi everyone Hoping someone can provide an answer to what is quite possibly a daft question! I live in the UK and would like to apply to graduate medicine; right now I'm considering all the options to try and maximise my chance of success so thinking about courses outside of the UK i.e in Ireland and also in Poland. As you may be aware the UCAS system we have here is such that you apply in Sept/Oct for the following Sept, and as such the latest that you can take the GAMSAT for it to be valid for that application round is the same Sept you apply. Correct me if I'm wrong but in Ireland the system is that you apply through ...

A-level practicals
Hi all, So.. to support my application to Med School in 2015 I'm going to sit my A-levle Biology exams, but am considering simply not doing the practicals and not obtaining the whole A-level. I've got around two years experience working in labs (though my degree wasn't in a science) and an A in A-level Chemistry. My logic is (a) I don't really care about actually obtaining the A-level (b) it'll show keenness to study the area with some (hopefully) good written unit grades to show for it (c) it'll encourage me to fill some of the gaps in my knowledge.
