I hope everyone who has sat their UKCAT got what they wanted but the reality is many of us didn't we've got the grades, the work experience and most importantly the ambition (at times lol) but somehow, when test day came up we froze and started panicking (like mwah) or underestimated the difficulty of the exam (like mwah). Fear not hopeful medical applicant! Many low/average ukcat scorers get into medicine every year - it's just a matter of patience and if it isn't going to plan a gap year it is! But this isn't necessarily a bad thing... In fact a lot of universities look favorably towards mature and more experience gap year takers.
You know, the TSR medical applicant community isn't representative of the entire pool of applicants to medicine so remember to not beat yourself up. It's pretty tough looking at outstanding candidates with incredible scores and just thinking HOW? lol. But I have to say a part of me is pleased for these candidates because they're proof that it's possible.
I've started this thread to share my ukcat score and update everyone on my UCAS medical journey - so that if I do miraculously get in I can inspire people like myself to not give up.
Here's my score - which is atrocious in comparison to people on TSR but fairly good in the wider pool of candidates.
VR - 590
QR - 650
AR - 610
SJ - 2
total - 1850
average - 617
Let the journey commence...
Please share your medical journey (in relation to ukcat) regardless of whether you're a hopeful or already studying it.
