    Hi all,

    I graduated with a 2:1 in Medical Sciences from the University of Birmingham. I got a UKCAT score of

    VR: 500
    QR: 680
    AR: 640
    SJT: Band 2

    I am not sure which unis i have a good chance of applying to and if it is worth applying. I have loads of work experience to include in my personal statement. Also how do you check the point scoring systems of how unis score you for your application.

    You check the requirements and selection process of each med school. Get a list of them. Then cross them out one by one where you don't meet these requirements.

    Then look at how they use the UKCAT. Unfortunately your UKCAT is quite low so you'd stay away from the UKCAT heavy unis. There is a document on the UKCAT website which has a table of all med schools and how they use the UKCAT which may help.

    You're aware of the funding issues with undergrad medicine as a graduate? You'll be required to pay the tuition fees of £9k yearly and would not be eligible for a tuition fee loan. You would however be eligible for a maintenance loan.

    Good luck with your application and let us know if you need more help!
