I am from the 2006 A level batch and took the old exam. I've got triple sci AAAA but B3 for GP with no S paper. PW grade is 1. Is there a good chance that they will shortlist me? And since I'm "older" than the new batch who had just received the A level result this year, will I be discriminated by the admission committee?
How come you didnt get shortlisted last year? Or you didnt apply last year? I think you have a good chance of getting shortlisted. No I dont think you will be discriminated. Its not your fault that you took the old syllabus. You will know that you get shortlisted around end of april. Courses that are very competitive and requires tests and interviews will usually send out their letters of interviews/acceptance much later than the other courses.
So when you see all your friends getting their acceptance letters and you haven't got yours, its a good sign that you are still being considered for medicine. In this case, no news is good news. If you have been rejected by medicine, then you will be automatically considered for your next course of choice, and if it happens to be one that doesnt require tests or interviews, then you will get your acceptance letter early like everyone else.
