    And national average was around 4.5 for each section. People got into Leeds with BMAT scores of 3.5 last year as they had a full academic score.

    No, there are 8 points for achieved or predicted A levels and 27 points for GCSE or AS.
    How are the points scored for the predicted A2's? I achieved AAAA at AS so I assume I get the 27 points for that and have already achieved A*AA, so how many point would that be out of 8??

    hey there
    Ive achieved 6A stars and 6As at GCSEs and am doing three A-levels: two are linear (chemistry and biology so I dont have AS marks), and the third A-level is Politics which I got A in for AS. I got a B in maths AS but I dropped it. I am predicted AAA. Would that get me full marks for the academic scoring for Leeds?

    Also If I got something like 4.1 average would that be enough?

    Thank you

    You would get 24/27 for academic score. My GUESS is that you would need around 4.8 to move onto the next stage.

    Unlikely. Considering the fact that around 40% of applicants apply with full academic score, they're going to need more than an average BMAT score to compensate. To overturn that deficit of 3 points, a top band BMAT score is ideal. To get 5 points for the BMAT, you would've needed a combined score of 14.7 last year, IIRC. So something like 5.6 5.6 3.5A.

    I don't think it gets read if you don't make the shortlist :/

    Edit: they "scan" them for mitigating circumstances, but other than that, there's no real factor to them, unless they're deciding who to interview.

    I think your school put you at a disadvantage by not letting you take AS levels. You just needed 3A grades to get full academic score. I personally think 9A* is harder than 3A.

    I dont understand the scoring system for leeds as I couldnt find how it works in their website. Ive applied with 9A*s 4As at GCSE and 3A 1B (the B I dropped) at AS. So what score would I have and is it good enough for interview assuming a get a fairly good BMAT score??

    You have a very good chance if that you did well in BMAT. I think you would have a full academic scores 27/27

    Id say you get full academic score with the GCSE x 9 A*'s

    You have to just get a minimum score in the BMAT to progress to next stage
