    Medify QR is not an accurate representation of the difficulty in the test; was averaging about 630 and ended up with 890 yesterday so don't worry guys!! It's literally all simple data haha

    Once your UCAS application is sent off, you can't change anything related to your academics, personal statement or choices(it should still let you change personal details like email) so you need to have selected your fifth choice and put it into UCAS before sending it all off.

    Track is really there just to see whether your application for each uni is pending, rejected or if you've got an offer and what that is.

    This isn't true - you can add a fifth choice later in track.

    You can add a fifth option until the January deadline when the others have to submit by. Trust me, I did it last year and added Chemical engineering as my fifth option

    Some unis do allow you to get away with resitting one module but even then you may need, as I've seen some put, an 'extreme' or medical reason that caused you to perform not as well as you were expecting.

    The main issue though is that the new A levels aren't divided into two years, it's all at the end of year two so any resitting, even just one module, is going to take you past the two year boundary that many unis have.

    I'm not saying it's impossible to get into medicine with resits depending on the situation and where you apply to and obviously none of us want to spend three years on a course that isn't medicine but it may come down to it being your best chance.
    There are about 6 unis that do accept resits without any extenuating circumstances so it is still enough to make a good application while doing a resit. I got A*AB and am re-applying this year with 1 resit. I do think it is easier than the alternative of going through grad entry and facing the heavy competition. And the exam boards don't have an issue with retakes due to the new syllabus, they made an extra batch of papers for resitters of the old syllabus

    I would also like to add that the majority of resitters from last year's med resit thread did end up getting offers and are now actually at medical school!

    Hiya, well done on your 2:1 you must be thrilled about that.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my understanding of UKCAT for use of GEM is that 700+ average is the only way to be on the safe side. There seem to be higher expectations for grads from what I can infer from previous years' cut-offs.*

    Have you done the GAMSAT? *
    Thanks for the reply!

    I am absolutely gutted about my UKCAT score - VR really brought me down! I'm gonna give it a go and see what happens, positivity!!

    I haven't done the GAMSAT - I really should have because I could have then applied to St George's but hey, there's always next year! Thank you

    Hello guys,
    I have been watching this thread for ages and honestly this has been the best place for advice. I want to ask you if I can' apply to medicine this year and if so where say I should apply. I have always wanted to do medicine because it interests me so much, and through work experience, I confirmed this. Any foundation courses will do. I can't do BMAT because most BMAT unis want B for English.
    GCSE stats:
    Maths: A*
    Further Maths AQA : A
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A
    Physics: A
    ICT: A
    Statistics: A
    Geography: B
    English Lang: C
    English Lit: C
    French: C

    Ukcat
    VR - 520
    QR - 740
    AR - 610

    As - Internal exams
    A2 predicted grades - AAA - A*AA

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Your stats are good. Why don't u resit English language at the same time as A-levels and put it as pending?

    Memory function on UKCAT calculator:

    When there is no "M" present on the calculator screen,

    M+ stores the value displayed on the screen

    An "M" appears on the calculator screen indicating that there is a number saved in the memory

    When you do another calculation and get an answer and press M+, the number on the screen gets added to the value in the memory you saved earlier.

    To display the total press "MRC"

    To subtract the value of the calculation from the originally saved number, press "M-" and then to view the answer press "MRC"

    Hope this helps!
    This was very helpful to know by the way. Thank you

    Exeter, UAE, BSMS, Plymouth, Lancaster, Liverpool.
    Universities that only need an A in either biology or chemistry and not exclusively Chemistry are: Barts, Keele, Newcastle, Durham and UAE (i'm pretty sure).

    Hey guys,

    Quick question for those who've sat the UKCAT already (I'm assuming that's most people here by now!); how do each of the sections in the actual UKCAT compare to the questions on Medify?

    Thanks in advance!

    First off, congratulations, great scores!

    As far as I'm aware, an average of 690 is enough for most medical schools (if you're applying as an undergraduate and have the relevant predicted grades and GCSEs), so, you're definitely competitive. Obviously, it doesn't guarantee you an interview - nothing would though!
