    My results are as follow, please let me know if my grade are suitable for the course. And what university I should avoid applying too due to poor performance here and there.
    Biology - A*
    Chemistry - A*
    Maths - A*
    RE- A*
    PE- Distinction* ( A*)
    Physics- A
    English Language - A
    English Literature - A
    Computer science -A
    Art- C

    Biology - B
    Chemistry - A
    Maths - A
    Further Maths- A ( Dropping this in A2)


    Verbal Reasoning -530
    Quantitative Reasoning - 570
    Abstract Reasoning - 570
    Situational Judgement - Band 2

    I don't think I will get anything lower than A in A2 and I have a lot of enrichment, work experience and volunteering work (for Personal statement) ; where I have learnt a lot about medicine and life in general .

    I'm not looking for reassurance but advice if I have better chance applying to one university than the others. Thanks.

    P.S I will also be completing BMAT exam soon.

    Hi! I'd advise you to look at how med schools select candidates here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...your_Strengths

    The list is quite but not completely accurate, so do check the websites of the unis you're interested in for some more up-to-date info. Your UKCAT isn't very strong, so I'd maybe go for 2 BMAT unis and prepare really well for it. Good luck

    Avoid unis that are GCSE heavy and UKCAT heavy still have a shot

    BTW both my high school and sixth form was/is mid-table and it is also based upon deprived area. Will the uni consider this because I had to basically teach myself everything without much help ....
