    Well done for the 695 haha i reckon you'll be alright but just make sure you got a back up choice if you see what i mean.

    Got any reccomendations for me? Its hard to find a integrated/systems based course that doesn't have such a high ukcat score cut-off.
    Leeds? That's another of my choices

    Think they're fine with any resits as long as they're done within the two years of A-Level study. I took around 6 resits (3 AS, 3A2) last year and they never mentioned it

    I'm applying to sheffield
    UKCAT - 770 average
    GCSEs - 10A*s, 1A, 2Bs
    My personal statement is alright I think, spent a lot of time worrying about it, but hopefully it's good...maybe I'm just being over-critical :P
    Unfortunately my tutor is not known for writing good references :/

    Pretty certain that Sheffield no longer give AAB offers but rather AAA.

    You should be fine mate, as has been said the average will almost certainly go down, they expect slightly below 700 to be the cut off

    I personally think it would still be a risk - they don't know what the cutoff will be, because even though they are predicted 700 from the website, they won't know until November. I guess it depends how risky you want to be.

    They'll send out an email if you receive an interview offer, then after you have confirmed your time & date, they'll send out a big interview info package.

    Other than that, you'll receive very few emails from Sheffield unless there is something missing in your application.

    did they say that at an Open Day or sth? cause I've tried asking them about it and they're only giving vague answers about the cut-off

    Haha, funny you should say that... got up this morning to find an email from Sheffield saying that they have received my application, and it has been forwarded for academic consideration. Although there is something odd - it says 'Choice number: 3' anyone got any idea what that means?
