Quick heads up, if anyone accepted UL, regarding the iPad. Needs to be ordered before 11th August (this Thursday). To quote:
Please note that your order must be received by us by 11th August 2016 in order to get the iPad ready for deployment on September 1st .
Source: can't post a link unfortunately. It's on the UL GEMs FAQ page. The question regarding the iPad.
I'm also trying to find out some key days such as start date, as I haven't received anything yet. I'm moving from Dublin and have handed in my notice to my employer; hoping to get things sorted and would like to know how much time I have.
Year 2 GEMs are returning on Monday 29th August. Our calendar shows that 1st year GEMS start classes the following Monday 5th September.
There is an orientation week the week before, but the only mandatory days for us last year I think were the student administration registrations days (usually the Thursday and Friday).
I'd say an email will be sent out soon enough with the Orientation Week, but I would ensure to be down in Limerick for Monday 5th September for the start of classes.
Hey! Ya sorry new to boards still getting the hang of it! Ya count me in! It would involve me having to travel but would definitely be up for it!
Congrats to those who got accepted this year!
I'm hoping to do the GAMSAT next year and was wondering did anyone have any advice? I have a degree in education and so have no Science background but I have bought the Gold Standard and Organic Chemistry for Dummies books.
Any help would be great!
Yoo hoo! Hello Boardsies!!!!
So, I've decided to take the GAMSAT this coming March, I've got a few sample papers, and I've purchased the Gold standard DVD, a verbal reasoning book, A.C Grayling's meaning of things, and my plan is to use Khan academy and LC revision books for the science bits. However, I am going into the final year of my degree. I kind of want the 1.1 (I know I only need a 2.1 but its just something I'd like to achieve). I was just wondering, is this all maybe a little too much? Does anyone know of anyone who was able to do the same i.e balance their degree and GAMSAT at the same time. It will be my first time to sit the GAMSAT in March, I'm just wondering is this a little too much to expect of myself, I don't want to overburden myself, and then end up collapsing with all the stress and achieving neither of these goals....
Didn't want to make a separate thread for this but I am looking for a bit of advice. I'm in my final year of pharmacy at the minute and I am set on doing medicine. Would you advise me to go down the GAMSAT or HPAT route?
Also - if there are any pharmacists around, were you able to get a loan and enter medicine straight after the pre reg year? Or did you need to work full time and save up a bit beforehand?
