    Thank you! With a score of 620 where do you think would be realistic for me to apply ??
    You could give Warwick a try. I know their Graduate Medicine Course is very prestigious.

    Hey everyone!
    On the table, it states that the southampton cutoff is 705... Presuming that the average will got up 20 based on the preliminary, you can presume that the cutoff with lay somewhere around 725. I got 723.3333.... Would they round up, or is this way too risky?

    The actual averages will probably end up being lower than the interim one if I'm honest. But even if it does go up 20 from last year, it doesn't necessarily mean the cut off point for Southampton will go up by 20. Because the quality of applicants each year also determines the cut off point. So if one year the majority of people applying to a University have scored below 700, the cut off will be below 700. Therefore it's impossible to determine; Soton applicants this year might average a lower score than the applicants last year leading to a lower cut off point,

    Your score is pretty good though, you should go for it.

    What should I do!?! My average is 653 (510 VR, 800 QR, 650 AR) and band 1. My AS were AABB and my predictions are A*A*A. I got 8A*s and 3As at GCSE. What universities should I be looking at? Is Manchester even worth it if the threshold is 650?

    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?
    Hey,

    great score! You must be pretty chuffed!

    How did you feel it was compared to your practices?

    Made sure to make a dua for you so all the best

    Thanks! Omg that means so much - as did I btw. Yeah, I'm pretty good with my score only downside is that I don't think I've got a chance in Glasgow, Edinburgh or St. Andrews - I'm definitely going for Dundee and Aberdeen (I think going to have to negotiate with daddo lol) But I don't know what my two other option could be... Or should I take a serious risk and apply for 2 of Glasgow, Edinburgh or St Andrews, But tbh I don't see the point if I'm rejected upfront.

    In comparison to the practise papers VR was harder, QR was easier and AR was ever so slightly easier. However, I still struggled with timing which meant i didn't actually read the question for 15-20 questions in VR AND QR.

    HI Guys ,
    Does anyone know where I can find the specific UKCAT cut offs for different universities? (other than the ukcat website which is extremely vague).
    I got a score of 663.3 in my UKCAT and my predicted grades are 6 A1 (Irish Leaving cert).....where would I stand a chance?

    Could really use some help! :/

    Hey. I just did Medify mock and got 576 average and band 2 which is quite bad. I got test in 2 days any tips. Plus the fact that the centre I will be going to doesn't have keyboards is freaking me out.

    I am going for Aberdeen and Dundee regardless (I live in Aberdeen and Dundee is close). I would say i's not a bad idea trying Edinburgh because if you go all A's then you get many points. Tbh, quite a few people have received offers in previous years from Edinburgh despite being in the lowest deciles. They take EVERYTHING into account so if all else is good, GO FOR IT! You may aswell apply for Glasgow or St andrews too if you are staying in Sccotland. Use your choices and if you get to interview (majority do), you're in same boat as everyone else. I know people with 550 applying to these places. Ultimately, it comes down to you though

    Interesting. Compared to official mocks or Medify?

    I didn't invest in medify (which I kind of regret) if I end up with no offers then I'm going to invest in that next time round. But yeah the comparison was with the offical mocks. My number one tip is to improve your timing. I didn't have enough time to answer many of the questions adequately.
    Thanks, I find Edinburgh scary because people always say you need >700 to go there but I mean it's worth a shot, right? In which case I'll patch St. Andrews and apply for the other four. Btw thank you so much - I've literally been staring at the ceiling for 3 hours trying to figure out what to do... No one knows what's going on. In my family no one understand the scoring system and I tried asking for help at school but I basically got told to phone the unis up aka "leave me alone" XD

    Try and brush up on that B as medicine is going to contain A LOT of biological concepts. And that score is pretty good but you'll only truly know until you sit the test. Best of luck, my tip would be focus on abstract reasoning, verbal reasoing and your timing in general. Everything should be dandy if your timing is excellent.

    If been predicted A2 in a subject then that tariff gets counted towards not the AS. Then the music and etc.

    Ayy, I nearly went there but opted for the Pentagon Centre instead - which I wouldn't recommend they gave me earplugs that did'nt work and the people were blatantly chatting in the test room. Also, I had to lift my hijab so that they could check I wasn't cheating which I didn't mind but they didn't give me time to fix it so throughout the test I was trying to control my hijab which kept slipping off. This didn't exactly help. XD
