    AS: AABB
    Predicted: A*A*A
    UKCAT: 637 Band 2

    Should I apply?
    Do they use the UKCAT as a cut off point and anyone that meets the cut off progresses to the next stage?

    Hey I'm a reapplicant with almost identical stats to you.
    GCSE: 6A*s 5As
    A-levels: AAAb
    UKCAT: 637 average SJT Band 2
    Where will you be applying? I'm thinking UEA, Liverpool, Aberdeen and Bristol, but I'm undecided on Leicester due to their cut off score?
    In terms of what Liverpool said about a 'competitive' ukcat score, I think we should be fine and it all depends on our PS from there.

    I'll PM you, just to not steer this thread away from its purpose.

    When i rang up admissions they said their cut off would be between 1770 and 1870 for this year subject to change. You have full points for GCSE's good predictions and a suitable UKCAT with a strong personal statement you'd have a good chance of interview.

    I'm applying too with GCSE's: 4A*7A
    AS: AAAA
    Predicted A*A*A*A*
    UKCAT: not done yet

    Predicted: A*AAA
    UKCAT: 640 :/ band 2 sjt

    My ukcat isn't too good so is it worth replying?
    Is the course majority PBL?
    Is there opportunities to do a placement abroad?
    Do they mind if you resit AS/A2 modules?

    Or if anyone can suggest any other unis that might suit my strengths it would be appreciated

    Would 3 days in a hospice, 1 day in a GP , 6 weeks doing medical research and 1 year tutoring maths be enough WE/ voluntary for Liverpool? I'm trying to get some weekly volunteering in a hospital, but this wouldn't start until after the UCAS deadline! I'm worried my personal statement wouldn't sound good enough due to lack of medical volunteering

    Are you a gap year applicant? I think you can include what you plan to do on your PS. As long as if you can talk about what you learnt from your experiences those should be fine

    No I'm year 13. I can expand a lot on what I've done, I'm just worried that they might ask why I haven't done more, particularly medical volunteering! My hospital is really unorganised, so aren't getting back to me very quick, plus they only accept 17+ and I have a fairly late birthday

    You're fine for Liverpool. We are very similar: 8A*s 2As at GCSE and 630 Band 2 UKCAT.

    I'm thinking of applying to to Keele, Leicester/Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff

    Hey! We have the exact same stats I also got 630 and band 2, I was going to go for Leicester too but when I calculated my score it was only 40.9/48 and that's below last year's cut off. I'm sure yours would be the same because we have the same stats. Just calculate it again to double check because I might be wrong.

    Wait what? I calculated 42.5/48.
    http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/med...-document-2017

    UKCAT score gives us 1890 total which gives us 18.5/24
    My best 8 GCSEs were Double Science (A*A*), Maths (A*), English Language (A*), English Literature (A*), French (A*), German (A*), Art (A*), giving me 24/24
    24 + 18.5 = 42.5/48

    I think our scores are different since we probably have a different set of best 8 GCSEs. Also, I don't think Leicester award 0.9 of a score its either (X).0 or (X).5

    PM me if you're still confused

    Ohh I see, that makes so much sense! sorry about the confusion are you sure? Because I've been reading stuff on tsr and there are people with scores with 0.1 or more. Anyway, lol your score is quite competitive so you'd be guaranteed an interview

    Thanks but nothing is ever guaranteed

    I'm quite sure - I called the uni to check whether the offer 0.1 or 0.9 etc, and they said its only 0.0 or 0.5.

    What's your final score? and what other unis are you applying to?
