    Hello every body just a very quick question regarding graduate entry.

    Are relevant GCSEs and A-Levels considered within an application of a graduate, or do universities only look for the degree subject, classification and UKCAT (where applicable) of an applicant?

    If GCSEs and A-Levels are considered, will graduates have to meet the minimum entry requirements? i.e. AAA at A-Level

    Thank you for reading!

    Hello, the universities still look at GCSEs and A-Levels but their entry requirements are lower than for the 5yr course so you don't need 3A's. For example Liverpool want a minimum of 3C's at A-Level and a 2:1. I can't remember what GCSE's they wanted.

    Went to 11pm 1. Think lecture was pretty pointless as all content was already stated online. It was good to speak to the graduate student and admissions person in the seminar room as they were really inciteful. I can't believe the grad entry is more competitive than normal entry! I missed the virtual tour, did you attend it?

    Yeah I agree it was quite pointless. The building was very depressing. I felt like I was time warped back to the 60's. I had a chat with the admissions tutor but he wasn't very informative. I missed the virtual tour as well. Kinda disappointed overall.

    1. UCLAN - Anyone know much about the teaching style at Uclan? The website states numerous methods, but I would like to know whether it is mainly lecture based?
    Also regarding being based at one of four dental education centres - is this purely for clinical training or training for all course material?

    2. Manchester - Considering whether to choose manchester instead of grad entry to uclan, but the heavy emphasis on PBL really puts me off. Anyone know how competitive UKCAT scoring is between sheffield and manchester?

    3. References
    - I assume everyone is using university tutors / project supervisors for references. Have your tutors asked for key evidences to support their claims in their references? (eg. exam results)

    I'm not applying to Manchester or UCLan so I have NO idea!

    Well I'm reapplying this year, was rejected after an interview with Kings last year.

    Got a 2:2 in Biomed and a Masters in Neuroscience
    Got BCD in A-level

    Just did my UKCAT today got

    540 verbal reasoning (arghhh)
    720 quantitative reasoning
    690 abstract reasoning
    770 decision analysis

    680 overall

    So annoyed with verbal reasoning left 6 questions blank! But its an improvement on last year where i got 665.

    Ive applied for both the 4&5 year kings courses, Liverpool and cant remember the other one...
