    Hi guys,
    I am applying for med school this year, and I am not sure what unis to apply to.

    I got 10 A* at GCSE, 4A at AS and I'm predicted 3A* at A2
    I want to apply to UCL, imperial, Oxford and east Anglia but that is 3 BMAT which is quite risky
    I got a 652 average for UKCAT, and could apply for Birmingham, but I am not so keen on it, and if so, I'm not sure which BMAT uni to give up as I love all of them!
    Any opinions would be much appreciated!!

    How's your BMAT prep going? applying to 3 BMAT unis is risky as you said, but imo it's not too risky if you really love them all and are willing to put in the hard work when preparing. Have you thought about switching one of your London unis for, say, King's? Your UKCAT is a bit lower than what they want to see but your GSCEs could make up for that.
