    So, leicester is PBL ?
    No, Leicester is not PBL. There are lectures every day, usually one or two. However, they do put emphasis on group work and every module has some group work. Also we do cadaveric dissection. Funfun.

    Sgul 580
    Does anyone know whether it's true that SGUL don't use UKCAT as part of the main selection process? I was told at the open day that they only use it to make up the waiting list, or if you're a borderline candidate...

    Correct, its used to do with waiting lists. However i got in with ABB so i presume being on the waiting list doesn't mean much.

    Also my friend was guaranteed an offer for SGUL but never got one in the end, despite phoning etc.

    Wow ! How were your GCSEs and As/alevels?


    Its nice to see people got in with less than 600...


    Im planning to apply to SGUL, I know i have to smash their interview !:o:
    Hiya

    Gcses: 4A*s 4As 2Bs

    As are poor BBBC but resat to AAAB level

    A2s were poor ABB - Bs in bio and chem

    My interview was amazing though.

    The waiting list is used to give out the remaining offers after interviewing everybody - they find out in April and it seems a fair few people get in off it as well.

    I got 632.5 but BBBB in As levels
    ASs seem more important than UKCAT

    Has anyone got in with BBBB or lower AS grades?

    I know it hurts. I really wanted 600. Now, i had to cross out qmul and kings off my list. 580 isnt bad at all, but there are too many with 650+ :|

    You should be fine, it's not all based on the UKCAT. By the looks of things your grades at GCSE and As are good so i shouldn't worry.

    as long as you have an outstanding personal statement/ AS grades or predicted grades / work experience etc. etc.
    then the UKCAT plays a little role
