First of all, Happy New Year! I hope that 2013 brings you all what you are dreaming of! I've had some good news to start the year, I've been offered a place on my first choice MSc course! As I want to remain anonymous I'm not going to declare what course this is but I am so happy to have had an offer. I've got to get a 2:1 in my BSc, but I'm confident that I should be able to do so, so fingers crossed I'll have a new start in September.
I had previously been feeling pretty rubbish about not getting into medicine (or even applying this time around) but now I feel like this was definitely meant to be, I love the sound of the course and I believe it will really benefit my medicine application in the long run, be that for 2014 or even 2015 entry - I will keep trying until I get where I need to be. For now I have exams coming up at the start of the new term essays, a dissertation and more exams standing between me and my MSc offer, but I'll get there.
So for me, so far the start of 2013 has been a positive one, for that I am very grateful!
Wishing you all a happy new year, and lots of luck for those with medical school interviews/postgraduate applications.
