    Hi there! Don't worry about your UKCAT too much it's a decent enough score. I'm starting at Barts this year and got in with a very low score of 645 . It's not the end of the world and your UCAS tariff seems very good with those predictions.
    Hi, i'm a bit new at all this. Pls what is meant by "UCAS points" or "UCAS tariff". Also applying this year for Graduate entry Med

    You don't need to worry about it as a graduate It's for people with A levels like an A at A level is 120 points, it's all on the UCAS website! There is also a grad BL thread which might be more informative as well

    He,
    I am really confused about something.

    I have A*AAA which adds to a UCAS tariff of 500. But I also have AAAA at AS Level, would I have to add AS aswell or not?

    Also I have a UKCAT of 690. With this tariff do you think that I should apply here?

    Thanks and please help I am gutted.
    If you have 4 full A levels I assume you don't actually have 4 AS levels as well unless you took 8 different subjects. For example, I have AAAa. Which gives me UCAS scores from my 3 A levels and then my one AS I didn't take forward.

    Hey there. I'm really confused about whether I should apply here.
    I got 2A*s, 9As and 1B for my GCSEs.
    For my AS levels I got AABB, and il be predicted A*A*A as I'm dropping my fourth AS level.
    This gives me a total of 450 ucas points.
    I did my UKCAT and got 735 (average)
    Would it be wise to apply here?

    Hi All,

    I sat the ukcat today and got 680 band 1. So bummed as I think this might not be enough for undergrad entry let alone GEP?? Has anyone here tried the bmat? What was your experience of it? Are there some unis which don't use an exam cut-off score as their sole discriminant?

    Thanks ,

    BMAT is an all together different exam. In my opinion it can be prepared for especially the science section which is advanced GCSE science bordering AS, and the essay which is usually based on an everyday topic eg Science, Economics and Ethics. The first section can be tough it has problem solving and critical thinking elements. You can improve on that in many ways but there is a degree of skill and that sections lends itself a bit more to 'smart' people, if you are like me it can be tough.

    I did it last year and actually did well in section 1 and 3 but not so well into section 2 which was the science one narrowly missed Imperials cut off

    Woah! With a score like that, based on last year you would need around 600.

    Apparently once you pass the initial academic assessment (upper second threshold), you get ranked by UKCAT and the top x% are invited to attend interview.

    Alright, that's great, thanks. What kind of interview do Barts and the London do? Is it MMIs or the traditional format?

    Your very high tariff gives you a good chance of getting in. Last year, an example they gave as a candidate selected for interview was 620 UCAS and 605 UKCAT. You've exceeded both these by a fair amount. I would say you're 99.99% safe in applying
