    I think they're really good, you have some strong academics there!
    I'm going for Kings and Queen Mary (though for medicine not biomed) too, good luck with your application!

    Guys, if you have a good UKCAT score, relevant work experiences, etc, then how important are achievements to the selection process?

    I know you have to seem balanced but does this mean you must have achievements in the extracurricular side?

    You should both read the wiki articles on 'applying using your strengths' and 'ukcat' (the latter explains how med schools use the scores), while the former highlights med schools that focus on things like GCSEs, AS grades, UKCAT and PS. Good luck!

    Hi guys, I'm still not sure about my fourth uni.
    I got:
    GCSES: 8A* 2As (in English lit and lang)
    AS: 4As in maths, chem, bio, french
    AL predictions: 3A*s in chem, bio and maths
    UKCAT: 675 and band 3

    I've decided on UCL, Cardiff and Bristol. For my fourth uni, I'm thinking either UEA, Keele or Leeds but I'm not sure which one I should go for given my UKCAT score. Any advice? Please help. Thank you in advance!

    I am. But I haven't looked that deeply at their course structure, social life etc, only the requirements and how to apply

    Hey,
    i think the predicted 5 in math SL isnt good enough, if u can push it up to a 6 then it would be better. But if ur only applying to 1 uni for medicine then i guess its OK ! Your ukcat is fine for edinbrugh.
    best of luck
