    Hi everyone,

    I have recently taken UKCAT and got 673 average. Do I stand a chance for UKCAT heavy schools like Glasgow and King's? I also have a first class honour degree for Biomedical sciences with lots of work experience.

    I am a bit confused about my application as there seems to be a significant drop in UKCAT score last year. Without knowing how the trend will continue, I can't help but feel unsecured in making the correct choices.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    From what I've gather that's a bit borderline for places like King's - very risky, but worth a shot if you have your heart set on that uni. Since the rest of your application sounds strong, you might want to apply to max 2 UKCAT heavy unis if those are unis that you really really love, and use the rest of your choices for unis that focus more on other things. Good luck!
