    You got close to me, I got 1960 and that's about 56th :/
    1950 might be around 54th
    Considering I wanted to apply to Kings, the score I got isn't too good.
    I really do not understand this percentiles/deciles thing :s

    I'm applying to Exeter, Plymouth and I need to find one more UKCAT university that accepts resits, I got A*AB. In a way I'm a bit annoyed cause I think I would've stood a really good chance at Birmingham which was where I really wanted to but of course beggars can't be choosers lol
    Bristol now accepts resits. And only uses UKCAT for 10% of your overall score.

    Apply.

    Only thing we can do is pray that it drops, the average is 1931, just pray it drops lower by a LOT!

    On the 7th of October, that's when we find out its all ogre!

    I applied to Manchester and will be going to the open day on the 8th, I know it was a massive risk but eh...
    Going in one more round when you don’t think you can - that’s what makes all the difference in your life.

    I'm not too sure about Queens and Kings, the other option is St. George which seems safe so far

    Hi everyone!
    I've finished my personal statement and made 3/4 choices...
    I'm unsure about the 4th, i want to stay in London so I was thinking of King's but not sure because of my UKCAT.
    My stats:
    GCSE: 6A*s 4As B (I've done them in five months so they're not amazing)
    AS: AAAAA
    A2: I think A*A*A*A (prediction)
    Personal statement pretty strong ( That's what they've told me)
    UKCAT: it was so bad 660 average and Band 2
    Is it too risky applying to King's? what about the extended degree?
    Any advice?
