    hello everyone
    i really want to go to glasgow and sat my ukcat today, got 2630 (657.5)
    worth applying?
    652.5 last year. Hard to tell what way it will go. depends entirely on who applies and with what scores. I applied with 660. If you really would like to go there, then risk it.

    Is it your only risky choice? What is your first choice?

    Does that mean everyone who got over 652.5 was interviewed?

    2009 - 615 cutoff
    2010- 640 cutoff
    2011- 652.5 cutoff


    So if the maths continues the way it has so far, we're looking at 658.25 cutoff.

    Now because my maths is only based on 3 results, it is likely to be inaccurate but...

    Sergio I think reading your posts you are desperate to apply. If I were you I might chance it if I felt the same. I understand your maths but I think the cut off will be higher than 658 so your taking a big chance with anything under 670 I think that's my honest opinion. Ask sweetchilli she knows a lot about glasgow

    Btw as a general rule how many reapplicants are successful 2nd time anyone any idea

    I'm pretty certain I will be rejected from Glasgow.
    If you're certain why are you applying:confused: can't you choose another one that might suit better?

    You're right, I love big cities. I've never been one for the smaller unis. I've already applied to 3 unis and I'm looking for a 4th.

    I'd hate it if I applied and didn't even make an interview but I'd hate myself even more if i didn't apply and the UKCAT score was <662.5.

    But I think it's one of those times were if it was meant to be, it would. I feel it would be much better to apply for a uni were the ukcat wouldnt be the be all and end all because I believe I can really shine in interviews.

    Thanks for everyones help on this thread and wish everyone the best of luck in getting into Glasgow. C ya.

    Hah! they were before my degree, about 5/6 years ago, so I'm not sure how relevant that exp is now. I definitely had the standard doctor questions. Talked about PBL and had questions on extra-curriculars. Oh! I had at least 1 question on recent medically related news I think. The one question that stood out went something like: 'what is the health like in the area that you live in?' I was pretty stumped at that but I said that health is good compared to other areas, due to decent health education, wealth etc.... but tbh I had no idea.
