Best Foundation School for Surgical Training?
I'm a final year medical student and am wondering where I'm likely to get information on which foundation schools provide better training for surgery/robust rotation? Or if anyone has personal anecdotes about which hospitals/foundation schools are good, I'd be eternally grateful! Thanks! (Source: New Media Medicine)

Gamsat exam 2015
Hi everyone, How did everyone find the exam? Section 1 and 2 could of been worse. Even though, writing about "art" was slightly ambiguous. Section 3, well it was section 3. Seemed different to the Irish exam. A lot more reasoning rather than learnt material needed for the UK version. A lot less physics as well! Maybe the Irish is more geared towards science grads and the UK one geared towards non science grads (humanities). (Source: New Media Medicine)

Unusual problem, need solving
Hello, I have very unusual problem. For now I study in Prague, Czech Republic in college. This college has graphics specialization and doesn't have chemistry, biology and physics. I really want to study at Medical School in England but schools there doesn't have entrance exams and relies only on A-Levels. I am studying for med school at home and I go to the preliminary course for med schools in Czech Republic. Is there any way to solve this problem? Will I have to complete another A-Levels?

Eligibility for a medicine degree - which route to take?
I am currently doing a degree in Human Sciences and got all A*’s and A’s for GCSE and ABB (French, biology and English lit – only a few UMS off A’s) in my A-levels and grade C in A’s chemistry and a D in maths.

UKCAT exemption
Hi Was just wondering if anyone's ever been exempt from the UKCAT and still been offered a place on a graduate course? I hope someone, somewhere has, since it shouldn't be biased (otherwise why would they bother with processing exemptions!?) but I'm struggling to see how admissions rank an application without a score. It can't be the same as a low scoring applicant, so does this mean its likely to be valued as much as a High scoring applicant? If anyone has any info on this i'd be hugely grateful. FYI, I've been medically exempt from this years exam- it's not a case of geography Xx (Source: New Media Medicine)

GAMSAT Section 2 Essay - Modern Art
In conclusion, modern art is no doubt more abstract and sometimes more difficult to comprehend than traditional art. It is this openness to interpretation though that gives modern art its beauty; a viewer searching for a meaning can develop their own connection with the art and the artist, often giving it a whole new message of their own.

I worked so hard for so long to get into medical school but now that I'm here I'm not sure it's what I want. It isn't that the work is too hard (although it is) - I've never been afraid of hard work.

I've been feeling low and discontented since very early on but a devastating personal tragedy a few months ago has really kicked things into overdrive.

Keele School of Medicine continues to rocket through the rankings!!!
Keele school of medicine started life as the Manchester school of Medicine taught at Keele around 2003. Then they offered the whole MBchB themselves in 2007 and the first full Keele medics graduated in 2012. This allowed the GMC to fully approve of the 5 year program in January 2012. As one of the new medical schools established after the 2000's the school has gone from strength to strength and has rocket through the rankings.
