Foundation training, nightshifts and childcare?
Hi I'm entering 3rd year in September but I am already wondering how the hell I can work night shift with a young son? He'll be 7 by the time I start F1 (assuming I keep passing). However, my partner works offshore so is away 2 weeks at a time. Are there any F1/F2 rotations that don't involve night-shifts? Is there anyone else in a similar situation? What do you do? Thought would need to be a nanny who would stay overnight when required but not live-in the rest of the time or maybe it would need to be live-in all the time? I hate that I'm worrying about this stuff now but as a parent feel I need to be a be more c...

Adding undergrad and post-grad degrees to UCAS
Hello - I am applying for entry to a few GEM programmes. This is my first time using UCAS as I completed my undergraduate studies in another country. I have a high-school education, a BA degree and an MSc degree (the last of these is from a UK institution). In the UCAS section called "Education", I cannot see where information about my overseas and post-grad study can be entered. The section says "add new school/college/centre", but when I click on it, it seems to contain only a list of A-level-granting institutions in the UK. I cannot find any of my institutions on this list. I also cannot find where...

Individual cut off points.
Hi there, I have been following this site for a while now but have only just registered. I also just took my UkCat and have a question. I got 682.5 average which isn't what I wanted but higher than the average, but individually I only got a disastrous 600 on the Verbal Reasoning part. Since most top unis require a score above say 650 on each individual part, does this rule me out even though I surpassed the average? Or would they take me into consideration considering I have a 90% prediction for my European Baccalaureate?

Academic Medicine/Clinician Scientist
Hi all just want to ask does anyone know how soon can a medics graduate to start doing some research? My thought is that doctors can only start doing some meaningful research during their ST training (as they would have to choose a speciality first to make informed decision). So is it at all possible to go into clinical research right after qualified (after F1/F2) and go on to get a clinical lecturership somewhere down the line? My ideal job will be to spend 80% in research and 20% in clinical works but I guess this only happens when you reach consultant level (and that seems long particulary for us mature student!).
