    I'm confused about this tariff points concept :/ Can someone tell me what i have got?

    Predictions: A*A*AA in maths, bio, chem and general studies
    Got a B for AS Physics.

    And my UKCAT was 2670, so average 668

    Is it worth applying here? :/ I really want to but i don't think i am goood enough compared to what everyone else here!
    Looking at the UCAS Tariff tables:
    http://www.ucas.com/how-it-all-works.../tariff-tables

    You get 520 for your predictions, and 50 for your AS making: 570

    EDIT: Made maths errors, don't listen to me

    That's what i'm confused about, I looked at the tariff tables, and found that A* is 140 and an A is 120...
    so wouldn't it be 140+140+120+120=520
    520 + 50 (B in AS) so 570?

    Well thats what my friends told me...

    Oh my ... you are totally correct! I cannot believe I made so many mistakes with that last post!

    In that case, you're UKCAT score should be alright. Not 100% safe, but it should be fine. See last years stats for interview on the first post of this thread.

    Sorry about the mistake!

    So what are the chances of a UCAS tariff of 520 and a UKCAT of 710 getting an interview?

    I've already asked this question before but I want to be absolutely sure! I have 540 ucas tariff points, but that's including my B in A level general studies.. does that count? I'm abroad so its difficult to call them and ask, and I've tried emailing. Can someone please check if that's alright?

    Would it be risky to apply with 665 ukcat and 540 ucas tariff?

    To be honest i would say it is risky not because of your ukcat score but your ucas tariff points. Both are weighed equally by Barts , i would suggest you look at another university which does not have i would say this unique system of selecting applicants for interview like Barts does. But still if you really want to apply its up to you!

      I would avoid applying to Barts because your tariff points would only add up to 360 from in the info you've given, if you've got an A at AS that's another 60 points so 420...but unfortunately it's a little low, below their cut-off for UCAS tariffs even with a good UKCAT score like yours.

      I would say above 600 is good. Higher your tariff points the lower ukcat score you would need for an interview.

      Hi,

      I really need help.

      I have the following A Levels:

      A in Maths
      A in Biology
      A in Chemistry
      B in German
      B in Further Maths --> All done to complete A Levels

      In my A Levels which I have certificates for (not sure whether this means cashed-in):

      A in Maths
      A in F.Maths (But because they changed my modules around for A-Levels, I now have a B in F.Maths at AS Level too).
      A in Chemistry
      A in Biology
      A in German

      If someone could tell me what my UCAS tariff would be: I understand it would be 360 for the 3 As + 100 for the B in German.
      But what about my F.Maths, how many points would I get for that?

      Also my UKCAT score is 2840 with a 710 average score.

      Thank you for your help.

      Hey guys urgent help needed!

      im a bit stupid because I didn't fully check the UCAS tariff requirements needed for barts and I've put it down as a choice: my UCAS tariff is 420 (AAAa) which by the sounds of things isn't great. Im predicted the 3A and have achieved the a in AS. But my UKCAT averaged 737. What do you guys think, should I change to say Southampton where they put emphasis on UKCAT? I don't do anything musical so have no chance of increasing my tariff, which I really annoying.

      any advice would be great!
