I'm applying for Medicine for 2017 entry. I'm not sure which universitites to apply for based on my AS and UKCAT results.
GCSE's - 8 A*'s (Maths, Welsh (2nd Language), Triple Science, Computer Science, Geography, French) and 3 A's (English Literature, English Language and Business Studies).
AS Level's - A in Biol, A in Geog, B in Chem and B in Maths. I'm also doing the Welsh Baccalaureate but that's an A - Level. I was orginally planning to drop Geography and then continue with the other 4 - Welsh Bacc is compulsory in my school, some universities accept it as a part of their offer some don't, nevertheless I'm not allowed to drop it. I've been told that maybe I rethink dropping geography. I plan to resit one Maths exam which if I get an A in will bump the whole grade up to an A, I am also resitting at least one of my Chem exams, again to bump it up to an A - I will resit these May/June next year. Are these good enough for Medicine?
UKCAT - sat the day before results day, only started revision a week before so results aren't great:-
VR - 600
QR - 650
AR - 730
SJ - Band 1
May sit the BMAT for UCL/Imperial.
Work Experience - 2 days at GP Surgery, 1 week at larger GP surgery (with house calls, minor surgery, clinics etc), 2 days at hospital (allowed into theatre), volunteering at elderly care home weekly for 1.5 years, volunteering at Girl Guiding Rainbows/Brownies, going back for my 3rd year in Sept and then volunteer weekly in local hospital for 1.5yrs.
What universities don't put much weight on the UKCAT/AS? Which uni's shall I avoid?
I'm looking at to Cardiff, Edinburgh, possibly Manchester, Exeter, UCL, Imperial. Any others that I've just overlooked?
Medicine - Which university with my average UKCAT and AS Levels?
