    Hi all,

    having made a quick search and not being able to find a similar thread, I have decided to start a new one for anyone applying to Glasgow uni for 2015 entry, so go ahead and introduce yourselves!

    Username : MO2898
    AS results : ABBCC (maths, physics, Arabic, economics, English L&L)
    A2 predicted : AAB (maths, physics, Arabic)
    Extras: Lancaster university summer school (July 2014), British Physics Olympiad (Nov 2014)
    Course applied for : MSci Astronomy and Physics (AAB typical offer)

    Sent my application last Monday, fingers crossed they won't be taking too long with a decision!

    Good luck guys.

    Hello!

    I'm wondering whether I should apply to glasgow...
    Do you know what weighting they place on the UKCAT (before and after) the interview? I didn't do very well (652 avg. and band 1 sjt), although my academics are quite strong (with all A*'s at GCSE and A*A*A for A-levels). Any other uni's that I should consider given these stats?

    Thanks

    It looks like your academic results are strong indeed! I'd give Glasgow a call on Monday and ask about the UKCAT though as I don't know enough about medicine at uni to be able to advise you. All the best!

    oh that's a shame maybe have a look at the further maths support programme? if you haven't sent your application off yet it would definitely be worth mentioning that you couldn't take it !

    I have sent my application off already. So I'm guessing physics and maths will be your only subjects as you'll start in second year?
