    Does anyone know who's cut-offs tend to be higher out of Plymouth and St George's?

    How much did their cut-offs drop this year for St. George's? I'm going to try and correlate it to Plymouths (I know that's inaccurate, but I need a Faldo sense of hope right now!)

    Plymouth tend to have a higher overall cut off. Here's st George's which I copied from their website a month or so ago

    I don't really know how to calculate it without including the decision analysis

    It wouldn't matter too much just ignore the 2013 UKCAT average (or maybe it was 2012) as DA really inflated it

    You never know, Plymouth might go down just as SGUL has. You got an interview at Bristol clearly your PS statement was amazing for their standards! With all your work I'm sure you did really well in the BMAT so that's potentially 3/4 interviews even if Plymouth isnt an option in the end. Just remember you only need one interview and maybe Bristol is going to be the uni you end up going to anyway 😋

    Aren't cut offs based on the applicant pool scores? Makes sense to wait for submissions in creating it. Otherwise they might have too high or too low a cut off. I see no other way?

    I used to think that but then I was thinking there's no way they could set their cut offs unless we've applied and if UCAS let us mix our options around after UKCAT cut offs were released then there would be no point setting them because all of a sudden you'd have so many extra people to interview 😂 I kind of wish there was better way too but I don't think one exists. I'm glad the uni's don't all release them on the same day because that would be horrible!

    Yeah I suppose, I just assumed they based it on the average score of everyone but yeah I see why it would just be who applied to their course

    Medicine and for those wondering, I had a score of 9.4 on the calculator
    Congratulations on your interview! I've got a score of 10 on the calculator but haven't heard anything so I'm terrified now
