    This is very awkward, but it turns out I'm not going to apply here after all after doing a bit of research, I realised my UCAS tariff will not be very competitive, misread one of my qualifications , so I'm not going to apply here. But good luck to everyone!

    I am actually a graduate applying for the 5 year program, so I don't think the same applies to me. According to the word document at the start of the thread, my UKCAT is used alone :s

    I got a 2:1 for Biomedical Sciences (which I believe is their entry requirement) and I scored 765 average on the UKCAT
    Wow, that's a great score! But you'd be better off asking the graduate entry Barts thread

    hey guys,

    I really want to apply for medicine in barts this year. I am taking a gap year.

    I have my final A-Level results of A*AAA in geog,bio,chem and physics.

    I have 9a's and 1 B in junior cert from ireland. A is the max grade not A*. I got the highest result in the country.

    My UKCAT core is 690.

    What chances do I have

    Thanks

    Wow congrats for getting the highest in the country!

    Your UCAS tariff is 500. Last year they took people with 520 with a UKCAT score of 690. Take that how you want, you never know what the admissions this year could be like

    I applied here last year and got rejected but I do like BL. I want to apply this year but I need 690+ in my UKCAT based on last year. I got 540 achieved UCAS tariff. If i go to school and enter myself for stupid A levels like general studies, could I use them as boosting my tariff? xD

    I have 540 tariff and 620 UKCAT last year according to the document I needed a higher UKCAT so probably the reason I got rejected. You can find a tariff table on UCAS website and there was a link on the 2013 BL thread from the top of my head it was:

    A full A level at grade: A* = 140 A=120 B=100 and so on. AS is half

    Does anyone know how the UCAS tarriff works for Barts? I've heard it's around 460 minimum to be considered.

    Do your predicted A2 grades count toward UCAS points?

    I have 4 A's at AS so apparently that's only 240 points. I have music as well as speech and drama that give me another 105 points which totals to 345. That's nowhere near the minimum and even having another instrument up to grade 8 wouldn't even get me to the cutoff.

    Its your predicted A2s mate so if you are predicted A*A*A* for example you would get 140 x 3 = 420 then plus your extra A at AS so + 60 then extra qualification so +105

    ---> 585 I believe

    You could do an EPQ, but I'm not sure you could finish in time. An EPQ could give you 70 extra points.

    To calculate just Google 'UCAS tariff'.
