    I have recently done my UKCAT and did not achieve as high as I wanted to, I got 617(Vr-500, Qr-650, Ar-700)

    For GCSE's I received 6A*8A2B. I will also convince teachers for predicted grades. I wasn't planning on applying to BMAT universities as you need a high UMS which I don't really have but will consider applying to imperial.

    I have a couple of questions:

    1) Before I really wanted to apply to Kings is that option gone for me? (realistically)
    2)People keep saying apply to Unis which aren't UKCAT heavy, but how can I view their cut off score?
    3) Which other BMAT unis would you say are easier to get to compared to the rest?
    4)Any international unis you could recommend?

    Sorry for the bombardment of questions, even if you could answer one I would really appreciate it.

    Thank you

    I not very familiar with the KCL application process but they seem like a UKCAT heavy med school so you might want to avoid it. There are plenty of other great med schools though.
    some Med Schools that aren't UKCAT heavy are St Gorges and UEA. I have no idea about the BMAT I'm not sitting it.
