Regarding your GPA your best bet is to contact each college directly and describe your situation. It's safer than (possibly) inaccurate advice from people who may not be 'in the know'.

As for the g ...

Start early if you can. You'll spare yourself alot of stress in the lead up to application deadlines and it looks alot better to have some long term project (commitment etc.). You could try:

I'm not 100% sure to be honest. You'll need to contact the central admissions office (CAO) directly and describe your academic background. Here's the link to the query page:

Hey Lucy,

To apply in Ireland you need 2 things:
1. A 2.1 honours degree in any discipline.
2. A competitive gamsat score. This year's cut off points ranged between 56 and 57/58 depending on the ...

Hey Hodhod,
If you feel very strongly about medicine go for it. Life is too short for regrets and 'what ifs'. You've already done nursing so you have a good idea of what to expect. When my medical sc ...

You're going about it the right way. Start with a level you feel comfortable with and gradually increase the difficulty. Also, do as many practice papers as possible. Some questions will look harder t ...

Section 1 is all multiple choice with about 75 questions on the paper. Practice is key. I used the 10 ozimeds to get used to the timing and the mental endurance that goes with it. The older ozimeds ar ...

Go for it! 6 months is more than enough time when it's used constructively. I started studying with a friend from July 2007 until the exam last March. But I found it wasn't until post-Christmas that t ...

Fair play for dealing with that workload. A friend of mine did a time intensive engineering degree but did the gamsat the year after finishing. Would that be an option? On the other hand if you give i ...

Well I didn't use it myself but I did get my hands on the 2 practice tests they use. (It came in a second hand bundle off ebay). Of all the prep courses with study notes they're all fairly similar I'd ...

Well done macca and everyone else on getting through a fairly long day. It's certainly no mean feat teaching yourself chemistry from the ground up. I personally felt the prep material reflected the ex ...
