    Any tips for VR I've been trying but I suck at it. I can do the T/F questions but I can't do the other ones. Got my test tomorrow
    Yo i got 723 on my ukcat exam. In all honesty, you should just read the qs first and then scan the passage for the questions which arnt true or false. That way after reading the qs you already know what sorta keywords to be looking for

    Thanks mate. I really struggle with the other type of questions(comprehension ones). Did you read question first, then the options and finally the passage?

    I emailed Kings to see if i was eligible for their course but because my school isn't in greater london i'm not eligible so that's out of the question i don't fit the other criteria aswell (

    i don''t really know where else i can apply thats in london
    You could retake some AS exams and hopefully AAA for A2 so you'd be eligible to loads of London unis but this would mean you'd have to get your teachers to predict you AAA. If not, you could always take a gap year and apply next year.

    what if i didn't retake some AS and got predicted AAA? would that mean i'm eligible for loads of london medical schools??

    Yeah, you'd be eligible for Kings, Queen Marys and St Georges. You'd also have to do the BMAT (i think) for UCL and Imperial. Check their websites for detailed entry requirements.

    do you think i would get an offer for medicine in a London college if i got BBCD at AS and i got low gcse results (1A* 3As rest are Bs)???
    i dont know my ukcat score yet cuz i still need to do the exam but what sort of score would still give me a chance
    No london unis i don't think. UCL are heavy on AS and imperial are on GCSEs.
    Try other places, besides two unis in london are bmat anyway

    Squishy where are you applying? And also what are your stats? I'm assuming you're doing BMAT from your other posts?
