    I really suggest you contact your school/sixth form asap! They would be able to add the ukcat scores in if they haven't sent off your application already
    Ahh kay thanks!

    My sixth form told us we have to enter them on UCAS. And it makes sense seeing as there is a section for the UKCAT when your adding qualifications. I also didn't give Pearson Vue my UCAS ID so what other way would the uni's have of finding out our UKCAT score? If someone else knows more about this they could probably be of more assistance than myself xD
    Oh gosh... you sure? Some people told me that I didn't have to. So, I didn't put it. :cry2: I'm going to cry.

    Lots of people didn't put it last year, so how did the unis find out their score?

    So, do we really have to enter our UKCAT score on UCAS? I don't remember giving Pearson VUE my UCAS personal ID when registering for a test... :O

    You don't have to put your UKCAT score onto UCAS, and you don't have to give Pearson Vue your UCAS ID. Pearson Vue send your UKCAT score to your choices/UCAS (not sure how but they do). You don't have to do anything. There is a section for UKCAT on the UCAS form so feel free to add it, but it makes no difference.

    Person Vue must use your personal details so name date of birth etc and use that to send it off to unis. You don't have to add it on UCAS, I did cause all 4 my choices require it so they will find out anyway.

    You can only send one personal statement; but biomedical science courses understand that there will be people applying to the course as their fifth choice after medicine so a medicine personal statement is fine for it.

    I think.

    Make sure to have a look at course structures; I was thinking of applying to Manchester for a while but when I saw the PBL system they use there, I really didn't want to apply.

    Hey can someone advice on which unis should I choose? My gcses are 8A* 1A. Forecasts are 4A's for AS and 2A*and 2A's for A2. I'm pretty upset about the forecast. My lecturers are not willing to forecast me 4 A* for my A2 yet as I have not set for my as. Will the forecasts grades have a detrimental effect on my application?

    From reviews I read written by current med students there, I saw that a lot of the learning has to be done on your own. Apparently you don't always know how in-depth you need to go and there aren't specific learning objectives. You do have groups with tutors where you can ask questions but I'd much prefer to be taught in lectures which will (hopefully) give me structure to my learning and give me opportunities to ask questions straight up.

    Dude, I think it's true to say that there are no Universities where anyone would "almost certainly" get an interview, even with very high scores on UKCAT and great grades.

    Kenya sounds great, but try to remember it's what you have learned rather than what you have actually done that is they key to valuable work experience.

    Good luck whatever you decide
    Thanks mate

    Thank you. I knew Manchester was heavy on pbl but I did't really know what that entitled. I may have to look for a less pbl heavy university
