    Hiii.. im hamzah.. in my first year of college.. thought I'd start a thread for everyone who's going to be applying for 2010. its our turn to start looking at the different medical schools, sorting out work experience, volunteering, looking at the entrance exams etc. Not long left before we start our applications (seems long but i bet it'll fly by), so why not go through the whole traumatic experience together! :D

    ... Roll On The Comments Everyone! :D

    well to answer your question you have to pay for everything it is about £3500 a year, but obviously you can get grants or student loans. I was thinking about going to Edinburgh and it is one of my almost definite choices, as long as my A- levels go to plan.

    I am doing bio, chem, maths, spanish and critical thinking.

    Good luck to everyone who is getting module results tomorrow!!!!

    They have become so strict with applications I don't know whether I will be able to get in if I get B or below so here is to hoping. :D

    Well, I dont know how to quote both of you, but Sara, I emailed the HR person of the NHS, not sure if it is region specific but you might find out on the website. Also, they will send you an application form which you need to fill in 2 months ahead in advance.

    Hamzah, Im from Peterborough. Good luck with your results tomorrow!!!! :)

    That goes for you all!
