    About me

    It's been over a year since I wrote in this thing. Might as well add closure to it! Well it's been one hell of a year! First of all I am still living in the house I moved into when I last wrote in this blog. It's been great living away from Ilkeston, I hated that place! However things have...

    Certificate in Science Discussion Thread

    Makes sense I suppose, still it's a shame as Lincoln is such a nice place to study. Saying that, students at Nottingham get sent there for some of their clinical attachments, so Roz you may be back there at some point in the near future :)

    About me

    The Move Today is a new beginning, I'm finally moving! I have lived in my house for 7 and a half years, 5 of which I've wanted to get the hell out due to many reasons such as being far away from uni, hating my next door neighbour, the small town mentality, feeling isolated, being stared at by...

    As the course was set up as part of widening participation i.e. those who would not ordinarily stand a chance at gaining direct entry to the 5 year undergrad programme. However as the course became established, both Lincoln and Nottingham started to realise that students were using it as a...

    About me

    What a bad start to the day! Woke up feeling even more crap than ever, have a slight temperature now along with a sore throat, cough, feeling sick, and an upset stomach! Anyway, I had to go in to City Hospital as I had my competency 'MACCS' for O&G. Station A: Gynae - Speculum & swab exam...

    sunny_d, is right. Low number of places hence high competition. Just because they ask for lower A'level grades compared to direct entry into medical school doesn't mean it's easier to get into. You still have to take UKCAT, get the grades, have an interview, fulfil additional criteria, and pass...

    Having a baby while at uni reading medicine?

    As long as you have the support of your husband then it's possible :) I had my third baby in July 2009, was pregnant during my 3rd year clinicals had her just after my exams, took 12 weeks off maternity leave and came back to medicial school in Sept for my 4th year. I have to admit there's some...

    About me

    It's been a while since I wrote in my blog, so while I have some time I thought I would update it. Since I last wrote on here I'm pleased to say I passed my Specials exam :) I finished my Paeds attachment which I really enjoyed, despite one consultant who kind of ruined it for me right at the...

    The waiting must be awful. You could always contact Emma Jubbs to see when more offers etc, are going out? At least you would know when to expect something.

    This thread is going off topic, I'm going to refrain from replying to your posts as all it's doing is causing this thread to deteriorate! You have your opinion and I have mine, so I will leave it at that.

    Further work? Like I said in my last post I've done loads of extra work with the Certificate, such as given talks about the course, attended meetings Lincoln whereby I've discussed how to improve the course! I've been invited by the university many times over the years to represent the...

    I have had many dealings with Martine and Emma Jubbs over the years! I have spoken with them on several occasions on both the admissions process and how to develop the course further! I have attended several induction days speaking with Lincoln students and was offered to do further work with...

    Calm down!! I am just saying STOP GETTING PEOPLES HOPES UP! They can ask for feedback to see why they were unsuccessful, but I don't think you are in any position to be telling people that they may still get a place despite being rejected! What makes you think admissions are going to change...

    I would bet a lot of money on the fact it wouldn't change their mind! Why get someones hopes up when it's going to be a no? Why would Nottingham/Lincoln reject someone just to offer them a place because they rang up to challenge their decision a few days later after finding out they were...
