    UKCAT results are out. See my post in the main forum.

    The mean average for 2013 is 2643 which is very relieving indeed :-)

    do you think Glasgow is more UKCAT heavy than Edinburgh? (undergraduate)

    At GCSE i have 9 A*s and 1 B (Spanish, which i dropped), do i stand a chance with an average UKCAtof 655?
    Glasgow has a UKCAT cutoff that entirely decides who is called for interview once minimum requirements are met. With Edinburgh, it is only worth 20% (35% including SJT), but they don't interview

    Hi everyone! I was wondering if you could tell me, roughly, what my chances are of getting edinburgh ( it's my first choice!). I have AAAAB for S5 highers, and AA for highers in S6, as well as AA for adv chem and maths! My UKCAT is 777.5, Band 1, and I have lots of work experience and do sport (swimming) at a national level! Thanks!

    Are you a re-applicant? What unis did you apply for.
    I would say you stand a very good chance, i was gonna apply for edinburgh but then opted not too.
    Band 1 will favour you and so will your A's at adv highers etc.
    Theyre looking for experience and EC so yeah you seem to fit requirements but alot of others will have just as much as well so its hard to say.
