    Hey guys, i got 3A, 11Bs, 4Cs for GCSEs and i am now studying bio, chem, geo, ICT at AS.

    I know my GCSEs are terrible but in my school, only 4 people got 1+ A*.

    If i was to get 4 As at AS and then A*AA at A2 paired with a UKCAT of about 700-750. I also am currently working in a Pharmacy, will go to Pakistan to do some work experience in a hospital and also take part in a building houses in villages project, i will be undertaking a placement in a care home every week, DOFE bronze etc...

    If i can do this, will i stand a chance at KCL if not, any Medical School in the UK?

    Thanks Guys

    Hi, also wanted to ask about my chances of getting into kings for medicine next year. Currently doing AS's. I got 8A*s, 2A's and a B at GCSE which was the highest in my school as I studied at quite a low and under average high school! What are my chances of getting into a Russell group uni?

    Many thanks!

    We cannot make such a judgement based upon this single piece of information. However, we can say that these grades will provide you you with an advantage at certain institutions, and they are more than competitive for all medical schools in the UK.

    Did you by any chance apply to the 4 year GEP? (Your interview format would've been the MMI) I know friends of mine who applied to the GEP and they also had their interview on Jan the 6th or the 5th. I applied to the undergraduate course because I didn't think I'd cut it for A101 (and I think I am quite right XP)
    I applied to both 4 and 5 year programs. I remember asking admissions and they said the gep interview would count for both programs too. Man MMI was a bit hard hahah. I think you would've made the cut though, I mean I thought I wouldn't have and the admissions officer gave us quite a motivating speech after we finished the interviews. Something about 1500-1600 applicants which they narrowed down to 168 to interview for 28 grad spots (eek).

    No I haven't got that message! Have you had your interview already?
    I did see it mentioned on the interview invitation letter, so I do plan on scanning them in before my interview.
    Yep had mine in December. Got the email today asking for the AS certificates. I'm going to speak to my exams officer to get them

    I cannot say for sure but maybe some others on this thread can help? But I would have thought that a UKCAT of 700 may be a bit tight, if you were to get 750+ maybe but if you were to get near 800 I think you may have a good chance due to their sliding scale. It is difficult to say really but there is always a chance! Particularly if you have really good predicted grades too. I would have thought you have chances at other med schools though! Especially places like HYMS where if your UKCAT is good enough your GCSEs won't even get looked at! And unis will certainly look at what your school is like so I would say work hard this year and it is probably possible!

    Kinda - I've also applied to kings for biomed, which uses the same portal. The biomed admin asked for my certificates, so i uploaded them and at my interview said i'd uploaded my certificates, but apparrently the medicine team cant look at my other application so needed them sent again. Probably why its taking so long :P
    We're in the exact same situation haha. I also applied to King's for biomedical sciences and got an offer for that and had to upload my certificates.

    I'm so happy I got the interview for medicine (although bit later than you). Really nervous about it

    I just uploaded GCSE, ASSET and AS certificates. Basically all the certificates I got through formal school exams. I did that all last month and they haven't asked for anything else, so I assume that's everything.
