    Ahhhhh right okay, do you think it's likely to be low this year? And can full academic scoring compensate for a low bmat?

    I have no idea tbh. It varies each year. But a full academic score does compensate for a low BMAT score, as long as your BMAT score isn't too low. Don't forget they also check your PS and they are really harsh when it comes to the PS.

    Because people are taking linear A levels this year, does that mean they will have no chance of getting 3 cashed in AS levels?
    And yeah 24/27 is what you would need at least i reckon. 8A* and 1A would be 26/27
    People doing linear can still do AS Levels, but it's at the discretion of the school. Quite a few don't bother, as it's costly to purchase exam papers for hundreds of pupils.

    Hi

    I am looking to apply for Medicine through Access to Leeds. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what to write for the Applicant Statement in the A2L application?
    Unfortunately I didn't know about the scheme before I applied but was luckily automatically identified as an A2L student. As a result I didn't write a statement so unfortunately I can't be of much help in that respect!

    I think anything above a 5 is good for Leeds. Try and get around 5.5 if you wanna be more secure. Above 5.5, give yourself a pat on the back.

    I think anything above 4.5 on section 1 & 2 will be fine and 3A on section 3. Tbh you'd get the full academic score cos of you AS grades so it doesn't matter too much if your bmat score is low although better to be safe aim for 5+

    Do you fulfill all th criteria on their website for what they look for in a PS like motivation,social awareness, interest,empathy....? They're really heavy on the personal statement it has to be really good and reflective

    It's quite humorous how the BMAT has literally destroyed the number of applicants for Leeds. It used to be one of the most popular medical schools.

    Oh well, less competition.

    Yah the people that checked my personal statment thought it was good so I hope it will be good enough. I haven't done any work for BMAT yet but after the UKCAT I feel scared of getting a low BMAT score. Do ppl aplying from the Access to Leeds get special concideration or a seperate selection proccess.

    Hi guys, I've only recently decided to do the bmat so feeling very unprepared (due to bad UKCAT). I don't understand the academic scoring at Leeds. If I have 4A*s 8As at GCSE and 4As at AS which are all linear but the one I dropped (English Lit) would I get credited for my a levels and have full academic marks or just my GCSEs which I don't think particularly stand out compared to some other people. I am also doing two volunteering placements at a neuro rehab centre and care home which I have talked about a lot in my PS as I'm really enjoying them.

    I find it really difficult to focus on the UKCAT. It's a very boring test; the BMAT is a lot more interesting. I actually didn't bother taking the UCKAT, so I don't know what score I would've got, had I taken it.

    It's good you find the BMAT more intersting. I agree. It's just that more interesting =harder
