    i think the point system they don't rank they just say you have to have minimum 416 and then ukcat they do rank but im not entirely sure and your ukcat sounds about average for this year so should be fine?

    They dont rank applicants according to their ukcat. They only rank those on the post interview waiting list.
    They do interview the top 600 according to their website so im guessing they take everything into consideration.

    We cant say for sure what the cut off will be until everyone has applied We can only hope that it would be low enough.
    If you are willing to give it a go, then go for it

    well if they used academic points and ukcat as a combined score for interviewing the top 600 then they'd have to combine them

    eg someone getting 5 for academics and 4 for ukcat would be equal to someone getting 6 in academics and 3 for ukcat.

    so if they used both of these then they couldn't determine a cutoff for just ukcat was what i was saying but i'm probably wrong so nvm

    Oh I see what u mean
    To be considered in the top 600, you would have to meet the academic requirements and ukcat cut off first. If you don't meet these u will be rejected and ur app will not be considered any further.
    I dont know how exactly they determine the "top 600" as they didnt say but I have a feeling academics are weighted more. I'm not really sure just guessing

    If you meet the min academic requirements and the ukcat cut off, you will be called for an interview.
    That's what their website says

    Hey. I got AABC (extenuating circumstances) for AS. I got a B in my fourth AS French but a C in Chemistry. Does. That mean I cant apply? Also, my school doesn't declare AS' s and I looked on the SGUL website, they have no specifications with declaring and they said that they will probably use predicted grades for A2 if not declared
