    Yaay.. I absolutely love Birmingham so its good to hear that my GCSEs wont put me at a disadvantage..
    Just wanted to check as I didnt want to waste one of my UCAS choices.. I've heard from some people that the GCSE cut off is 'officially' 7A*s but they wont accept you unless you have 9 / 10.. but I wont worry about that anymore..

    Muchly glad I dont have to worry about the UKCAT for Birmingham.. not doing too well in the practice tests at the moment!!

    Their cut off for 2011 entry is 7A*'s they said at one of their open day presentations.
    Also I talked to a couple of medics there and they had mostly 8A*'s and a couple of A's so you should be fine

    EDIT Sorry I meant their cut off is going to be 7A*'s for 2012 entry. Not sure what the 2011 entry cut off was actually.
