    Your name, date of birth address etc make it happen you don't need to give any UCAS info
    Thanks a lot! You've just saved me from my relentless stressing. Much appreciated.

    Hey there, can I ask you a question please? I have done my UKCAT a few days ago. The problem is that I don't think that I gave any of my UCAS details to Pearson Vue, and I don't know whether my UKCAT score will be sent or not. What's the best thing to do?
    You're right. We don't give Pearson our UCAS details. But they have an automatic method of sending the unis we choose our UKCAT result. Don't ask me how though! In my case my teacher kept banging on about how you had to put your score on UCAS apply even though I knew the Pearson company would automatically in their own way send my unis my score. Don't worry, Pearson say that they do send it to your chosen universities which request it. But if it makes you feel better, you can always put your score on your application under your qualifications. "Clinical aptitude test" heading will come up. That's what I did. But basically, you don't need to because Pearson VUE will DEFINITELY send your score to your unis.

    Hi guys :ciao: Really need your help !!

    I came from India in 2011 and now I am applying for medicine as a home student, so most of the uni's don't want me to hold any GCSES or either will consider my equivalent Indian qualifications (except Cardiff, Manchester and Birmingham)..

    I got UKCAT score of 702.5, with 430 in VR ( so cant apply to St. George, Plymouth, Hull York and Nottingham)

    I did GCSES and my AS level in a single year and got 4A*S, 2A in GCSEs and AAAA in AS level. I am predicted A*A*A*A in my A2s..

    Which uni's should I apply to ??


    Any help is really appreciated :chaplin::chaplin:
    Help please

    thanks! Glad someone has finally cleared that up for me!
    Aha no worries mate, on UCAS if you actually press on the question mark next to point of entry it syas 'Leave blank and you will be entered for first year'! But if you put 1 it should come out as the same thing anwyay but yeah we're better off listening to UCAS

    If you really like Newcastle and you've applied to your strengths for the rest of your choices then you may as well risk it.

    I was told to put in both the AS grades and A2 subjects separate, as our school had cashed in our AS grades

    my AS grades were certified so should i enter the AS GRADES and A2GRADES for each subject-
    so 4 for AS and the 4 FOR A2?

    I pasted my PS into UCAS apply and it was 4 lines over. This meant I had to sacrifice my lines between paragraphs. Is that ok or is it worth having the spaces and losing some of the words?

    I can't give you a definitive list I'm afraid, but I've heard (on TSR) that very few med schools have announced plans to use it, and the majority of those seem to be saying they'll only use it as a tie-breaker between otherwise identically ranked candidates. It has been discussed before in the forum, so you may be able to search for it. Alternatively, do a google search for 'medicine sjt site:ac.uk' (without the quotes obviously). If you want to check the attitude of a specific med school to SJT, add the uni's name to the search terms. Good luck!

    That's got to be your decision I'm afraid. In part, it depends on how much you want to get into medicine, how much you want to study at Newcastle, and how sure you are of getting an interview elsewhere. OTOH, the cutoffs have risen each year in recent years. OTOH, Southampton has switched this year to a very similar policy, which may reduce the cutoff through the law of supply and demand. Good luck!

    I was told to err on the side of giving too much info rather than too little. If you give too much, they'll ignore it, if you give too little, they may reject you. Good luck!

    Try to follow the advice on blank lines if you can, but don't cut any important text. If it's not too late and you are struggling with the line limit and using Word, try this tip... convert the text to Courier size 9, a font in which every character occupies the same space on a line. Then adjust (drag) the margins to show exactly 94 characters on each line (no more, no less - insert a string of 94 characters on the first line to help you get it exactly right). Now you can see where characters are being 'wasted'. You'll have 'wasted' spaces at the end of some lines, because long words don't fit and move to the next line, and you may have paragraphs with 1-2 words on the last line - a small cut could save a whole line. HTH, and good luck!

    Thank you for the advice but I've sent mine away so can't do much about it now.

    02 - you're not NHS funded to start with so all your support is from SFE.
