    Hello guys.

    Just thought I'd make a new thread for you guys to post your stats since the other thread like this is about 4 years old now.

    Format will be like this and I may aswell post my stats in.

    GCSE's : 1A* 5A's 4B's C. B in English Lang.
    AS levels : A - Maths, A - Bio, A - Chem, B - History
    A2 Predictions : A* - Maths, A* - Bio, A* - Chem. No way am I getting 3A*'s :confused:
    UKCAT : 747.5 AVG
    Uni's applying to : Manchester, QMUL, Plymouth, Newcastle
    EC activities : Pharmacy, Care home, 2 weeks GDP, matchstick model making.

    Feel free to post, would be nice to see what kind of spread we have on here.

    Sorry but NO DISCUSSION is allowed, it will just clutter the thread and move it away from the main focus. If you want advice on where to apply don't hesitate to post in this thread - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1#post44594961

    Do Queen Mary's (Barts) have a cut off for UCAS tariff points or do they use it in conjunction with the UKCAT? I've got 3As and a B at AS which gives me 410 and I've just sent my app off I was just wondering would I be rejected without interview because of UCAS tariff even though my UKCAT was 700 ?

    For QMUL you need to have minimum 460 ucas tariff points... If you can change that choice then do because they will not consider you below 460!
