You know when they say to always expect the unexpected?

Song of the day: Young Folks - The Kooks

I have not been  around much lately mainly because of revision but today has been my last resit exam and even though I am not sure if they have gone well or not I am just really glad they are over. 

During the exam period I got an email  which made me really happy, I got an interview from Liverpool! which was kind of unexpected given than Lancaster rejected me because of my personal statement. This has actually put my hopes a bit up on Southampton but I'm trying not to even think about it and I am just concentrating on the interview coming up later on this month. 

Someone did ask me which one would I choose, out of UEA and Liverpool, if I had offers from both and even though I didn't know which one  I like more, Liverpool asks for an A  for resits applicants while UEA wants an A*. 

I don't really know what is going to happen with the rest of my gap year as I have one month until results day in March, which will also be when UEA and Liverpool send out decisions. I need to get working on getting back on my routine and I think I will be back on my job this weekend and hopefully next week I can get back to my volunteering. 

Once I'm done with my antibiotics of this stupid respiratory infection I also want to go and donate blood and I was even thinking about donating plasma although I am not really sure how I feel about that since it's such a long procedure... has anyone done it? 

Also, talking about my Liverpool trip I would really like if anyone who has been there could give me some interview tips and also some suggestions of things to do and see, I've been to Liverpool once and it was mostly a shopping trip (which I would not mind repeating if I have to :P ). 

This would be my fourth medicine interview, so I think my nerves would be very calmed and I felt really confident during my UEA interview so I hope that plays to my favour! 

I guess that's all for now! 

Really hoping I did well on my resits to be honest! 

Thank you for reading and thanks to everyone who visits the blog :) 



PS. The song choice is because of the latest Gossip Girl episode, the one with the wedding! 


  1. Good luck with the interview! I hope everything turns out for the best :-)

  2. Hey good luck with your Liverpool interview!! I had mine in December (for the graduate 4yr course). There were also some people being interviewed for the 5 year course. You shouldn't worry at all about it as they are so friendly. I found it to be an informal chat, just make sure you know your personal statement inside out and also about the course. As long as you know this you can't go far wrong. Really hope you get an offer, you deserve it so much. I really liked Liverpool when I went there for my interview!

    1. Thank youu :) So glad is like informal then, thank you for all those tips greatly appreciated. Would you choose Liverpool over Birmingham?

  3. No problem. If you want to know anything else just let me know! Definitely Birmingham- one of the main reasons is because its close to home and I also like the course structure. I really like both Birmingham and Liverpool though, both great universities!
