    Hey Guys,

    CONGRATS TO ALL WHO COMPLETED THEIR UKCAT! Nervous for those deciles this weekend

    Quick Q:
    International Student who did IGCSES (only allowed to take 9 here): 3 A*'s, 3 A's, 3 B's
    IB Diploma Predicted: 41/45
    UKCAT: Average of 683 and Band 2 SJ

    Would I get an interview at Barts or Kings?

    It is impossible to tell because loads of people with better stats than that have been rejected and loads of people with worse stats have been invited to interview.

    You definitely have a chance though.

    Ultimately that will depend on your Personal Statement.

    King's is a funny case. A lot of people think that you need 700+ to even be considered but that's a complete myth. Most of the applicants they interviewed last year had a score of 650 or above, and one of the applicants had a score as low as 612, so clearly that's not the case.

    They look at your GCSE's and A-Levels along with your Personal Statement. UKCAT is also another factor they take into account but not anywhere near to the extent that people think they do.

    Honestly, it is. I guessed the whole of verbal reasoning as I didn't need to do the ukcat and still got an average in the top percentile.

    590, 730 or something avg but I knew I didn't need it a week before so I decided not to revise from then and conduct a little experiment on whether it's due to chance lol
    haha... can you donate that score to me please

    For mine I used my hospital volunteering. I helped to calm down a dementia patient who was confused about her surroundings and why she was in the hospital, by just talking to her and offering comfort basically. She was going through a rough patch with her dementia that day and I just talked in my PS about me trying to understand how lonely she must have felt, hence why I sat down with her so long and offered her a hot drink etc. My example is nothing major but it is still something. Hope that helps a bit!

    I just sat my ukcat yesterday and got

    VR: 530
    QR: 750
    AR: 750
    SJ: Band one.

    I'm taking a gap year and from Ireland. My leaving cert went well I got 2A1's 3A2's (including biology, chemistry) and 2B's, and my personal statement is pretty good.
    Is that a good ukcat score? Where should I apply?
