    Pretty much given up on getting a place here cuz as I've realised I've only scored 55 (28 academics) and (27 in UKCAT). I have 6A*s but don't have then in the right subjects and I blame verbal reasoning for my low UKCAT score :/ such a shame seeing as leicester was my favourite - but good luck to all you guys xx

    Don't rule yourself out yet! If you don't meet the automatic cut off they look at your PS etc and give more interviews
    If your PS is great then you could still be in for a shot!

    Keele sounds brilliant. I have a friend that got a 2.2 in his degree, 550 in his UKCAT and started there this September. I read his personal statement and it was an absolute killer.

    He's loving it, I keep bugging him for updates and he's very happy - he says that all the staff are very friendly and really seem invested in helping you to succeed.

    That sounds good then - if it's one of your strengths then Leicester is most certainly still in the running for you!
    I applied to Imperial, HYMS, Newcastle and Leicester

    Do they rank the applicants and then interview the 60/60 first and so on?

    As far as I know they will score everyone and then decide a cut off score e.g. 57. They will get interviews... Don't know quite how they allocate the interviews from then on but it's never been said (afaik) that they work down the scores in order
