    Have a look through this, not sure how useful it is but better than nothing i suppose
    Yh thanks Looks like Southampton, UEA and Nottingham will consider the score if my overall application is decent which i hope it is. I don't know about KCL they said they will consider but " chances are reduced" since i believe they are quite UKCAT heavy even for foundation year. Do you think i should pull out KCL and insert Bristol as they appear less aggressive on UKCAT scores or risk KCL in your opinion?

    Hey everyone!
    I sat my ukcat today and here's what I got:
    VR: 590
    QR: 650
    AR: 610
    SJ 2

    total 1850
    average 617

    The universities I was considering are Edinburgh, Aberdeen, St. Andrews, Glasgow & Dundee but that's probably going to change. Does anyone have any reasonable advise as to where I should apply or whether I should take a gap year?

    I took my UKCAT just a few hours ago and my average score was 696.
    And induvidual scores are 520 for VR, 850 for QR, 720 for AR and Band 2 in SJ

    Are those good enough for universities coz my AS grades were pretty low.
    Yeah that's real good, well done! What did u get at AS? Tbh AS don't really do much good unless they're good enough to put in a Reference. As long as ur school predicts high then that should be alright.

    You might want to check universities that use subtests scores because VR is a bit low, however VR has been low for everyone this year so you'll be fine probably.

    Your ukcat is good for the vast majority of universities.

    You need to turn your grades around, take a year out and apply. No offence but there's no chance you get into Med this year, with those grades - take it from a guy who got 4 rejections pre interview because my AS grades were BCCD.

    Ukcat can cover up for loss in AS though, there's a guy onyoutube with the same AS grades that got 4 offers I think and goes Durham now.

    Yes but your predicted grades still need to be AAA at least to stand a chance. The person I was replying to has been predicted lower

    Soooooo i had my UKCAT today and I think it went pretty well. Alot better than i expected coz my mocks were trash.

    My results are:
    VR- 520
    QR- 850
    AR- 720
    SJ- Band 2

    So tell me if thats good or bad coz I'm not entirely sure what kind of score is considered 'good'. Im hoping to apply to barts and kings college.

    Are the questions in QR at the bottom or right side of the screen? Just wondering. On medify, they're at the bottom of the screen

    It drives me insane constantly scrolling ugh, also with this question, on medify/ukcat if the data is more than a page long and has the scroll option it won't let me move to the next page unless I've viewed it all aka scrolled down? Is that the same in the exam? because it makes me waste so many valuable seconds lmao😂

    Personally I'd apply for Bristol instead, as they put less emphasis on your UKCAT score. But if your heart is set on Kings then it's worth a shot IMO.

    Guys i need help. I got 600 Average and Band 1 STJ. I only had 20 or so days to revise for the UKCAT cause of research placement this summer etc
    I am planning applying to foundation year course. At Nottingham, Bristol, UEA and Southampton since i do qualify for those. Pretty disappointed at the 600 average. Is this the end of the road for me? My predicted grades are ABC my GCSEs are not the worst ( in my opinion) 4 A*-A 7Bs and i have taken lots of hospital work experience, done nuffield research placement,crest award, volunteer at children charity and have written a scientific report for GSK this summer.
    I really do not wish to take the graduate entry and i dont believe there are any bmat foundation year courses available.

    Any help from those experienced would be appreciated.
    Yep you and me are in the same position but my UKCAT was worse than yours. I am was hoping to do Foundation Medicine at Bristol, UEA, Leeds and Lancaster. I got 580 average and Band 4 . My GCSes were 2A*s 5As and 4 Bs. My AS were AABB and A levels predicted ABB in Chemistry, Biology and Maths.

    With your stats, its definately NOT the end of the road for you! Foundation Medicine is for students like us who want to do Medicine but dint really meet or have a competitive set of grades or academics.
    Right now, I would advice you continue with your application (and maybe take the bmat if you want). You're good to apply to unis like: UEA, Southampton, Cardiff.... I wouldnt say Southampton because I heard they want 650 minimum for their BM5 and BM6 programme.

    (And i just realised were applying to two of the same unis )

    It's subjective but IMO if you're in the 7th decile then your score is 'good', 8th and 9th decile and your score is 'amazing.' It's more than good enough for Barts and KCL for sure though.

    What were you scoring in mocks btw?
    What decile does 704 fall under? I got VR: 600, QR: 740, AR: 770, SJT Band 2 o.o I really wanted to apply for kings but im not soo sure now

    Exeter want above 650? Where did you read this?
    In the student room. So that's not true? Do you think with a 610 UKCAT average (1890 overall), 7A*s and 3As at GCSE I might have a chance?
