    i would go with Nottingham because your UKCAT is above 700 first of all and from the reports published today you are in the 9th decile so you would make it. Its up to you in the end.

    Good luck you have great choices!

    Well looking at the flowchart if you have a average of 8 A's at gcse including your normal subjects (maths, english), predicted grades of AAA and a 4th AS that is a B or an A, and last but not least ukcat meets cut off you should be fine for an interview.

    I'd say Nottingham since fewer people have been getting high scores so competition would probably reduce slightly???

    I think now it depends on what you like because either would probably take you, also St. George's interview isn't very nice I've heard. But they do interview lots of people.

    Hey guys,


    I have achieved grades of A*ABCa, but I go to a school where I fit the 'adjusted criteria' - I called up and they said I am eligible to apply...

    Im not sure how it works, would I be considered as if I have achieved AAA? My UKCAT is 672.5, all above 500.

    I have a fear that I would be disadvantaged and not treated like others... does anyone have any experience of this? anyone got in this way?

    Thanks!
    Hiya

    I am in the same situation as you but I believe what we have to do is resit to get the required grades as I got A*ABc but I will be predicted A*AAb and I am eligible for the adjusted criteria.

    I was told we get compared to the avg points per person at our school to see how well we have done. It's on their entry requirements page if you want more info as i am not entirely sure too but if anyone else knows please let us know!

    Thanks

    I thought it was quite intense but your experience might be different.
