Some universities, like St Andrews, UCL and Leicester, ask that they are shown new evidence of improvement in your application. This may be taking on some new work experience in a gap year, resitting your A-levels, or even working on your interview technique.
Our tips for improving your application include:
If you’ve applied to Medicine in a previous year, you’ll need to register with UCAS again – your username and password you had previously won’t work, so you’ll need to create a new account.
The rest of the process is the same: you have to upload a Personal Statement, your personal details and select the medical schools. When you’re making your selections, make sure you double-check which universities allow re-applications – you don’t want to waste an application space!
Don’t forget to update your Personal Statement with your new work experience and information on how you made the most of your gap year, and/or update your details with new predicted A-Level grades.
