    Liked the course structure, campus is amazing, great sports stuff, plenty to do, medical school is really impressive and its pretty much perfect distance from home as well!

    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!
    What is your B in?

    I know, I understand that. Though, you'd think though that considering Glasgow isn't the best medical school in Scotland they'd have their academics more in line with what the majority of medical schools in Scotland have I.e. AAAAB

    I know some people think its because their trying to raise there ratings by only accepting those with AAAAA.

    Thats really unlucky, so many people have just missed out on glasgow i think. Its just to many competition i think so theyve just 'upped' their game.
    The B in minimum requirements is like a sort of safety net.

    Does it matter too much now since applications have been sent away?
    Only edinburgh, theyre one of the few in the UK to look at it but ive been told if there are borderline cases between candidates then they will use the SJ
