    Yes, but GCSE heavy uni's want 8/9 A*s at GCSE so you wouldn't be competitive.

    The uni's I'm talking about are Oxford, Edinburgh, Cardiff, QUB and Bham

    Well the cut off last year was 650, so it is risky. Unless averages go down or people apply with a lower UKCAT, your UKCAT may not be enough. You could always use it as your risky application and then apply to 3 safe, as long as all your UKCAT sections are above 500. Someone from my college actually got in with a UKCAT of 635 last year which was below the cut off, I don't understand why this is.

    Thanks for the mention Jehaan Here's the aforementioned blog on where to apply with a ukcat score of 600-650. There's still plenty of options - don't worry!

    If anyone else is interested we also have info on which unis are good options for higher and lower scores.
