    Hey everyone! Just a question about the mid-way ukcat preliminary results. Over the next few weeks as the september crew finish their exams, is the mean likely to go up or down? I heard someone once tell me that those who do it later tend to do worse, but idek :/ Can't seem to find any previous copies of the document relating to the previous years. Any ideas?

    On the UKCAT guide it says that people who do the test earlier tend to do better. I think they remove the prelim results after actual results are released, because they're definitely not on the website :lol:

    If I were to hazard I guess, I'd say they'll go down. Not by a lot, but I think they'll go down (please note this is completely speculation), mostly because of what the UKCAT website says, but also because people doing it now are more likely to be busy with other work and whatnot.
    We can't really be certain, though, but they are quite comforting to an extent, because they probably won't change massively.
    I was starting to get worried, though, especially since out of the 6 people who have taken it at my school so far, half of us got 750+ :lol:

    660 is still very good
    I don't know much about the Liverpool entry process, but with UEA, if you have quite good GCSEs, you should be fine
    I've actually made a thread for UEA 2017 every, if you want to join it

    Hi,
    Could you please give me some advice?

    GCSE's: 9A*s 1A
    AS: A in Eng Lit, A in Maths
    (My Bio and Chem Courses are Linear so didn't take AS exams for them)
    A level Predictions: A*A*A (Bio, Maths, Chem)
    UKCAT: 670 and Band 3 SJT
    BMAT: will do!

    WE: 1 week at a hospital
    2 weeks work experience in a pharmacy
    I don't have any voluntary work in a care environment
    I have taught and supported younger students struggling in maths
    Dofe
    Prefect
    (there's more but I don't want to go on and on )

    I'm thinking if applying to Imperial, Leeds, Birmingham. I'm also thinking about Bristol.
    Do you think I stand a chance with these schools?
    What effect do you think my Band 3 will have on my chances if getting in?
    Will my lack of voluntary work (in a care home etc.) affect my application?
    Can you think of any other unis that would be a wise move?

    I would REALLY appreciate any help

    For UG you seem decent enough, the only thing I'd suggest is contact the universities you want to apply to ask how they use the SJ.

    For all I know school attendance has nothing to do with the application process, but I recently came across a website that said you may need to send the unis attendance records?! Is that so??

    Hey everyone,

    So I'm unsure of where to apply and I have done quite a bit of research but can't seem to figure out which Med Schools I should put down as my 4 choices. Here are my stats so far:

    GCSEs: 6A*s 4As

    A Level Predictions: A*A*A(History,Chemistry and Biology)

    UKCAT: 637 Band 2 😭

    Work Experience/Extra Curricular:
    1 week Opticians
    1 week GP
    2 days Liver Unit
    1 week Neurology
    1 year as a Maths Tutor
    1 year as a Peer Mentor
    Prefect (Yr 11 and Yr 13)
    Attended Kings Outreach sessions
    Ongoing care home placement
    Organised Christmas Party at a care home near by school

    I know my UKCAT is quite low, therefore I do plan to do the BMAT and apply to non - UKCAT heavy universities. So far I have been thinking of:

    Bristol - very aware its PS heavy
    UEA - are my GCSEs good enough??
    Liverpool
    Lancaster
    Brighton and Sussex
    Leeds - again are my GCSEs good enough?
    UCL - I was wondering if I should take a risk and apply here?

    Where do you think my chances lie? I keep changing my mind as I am unsure which choices would be best?

    Thanks

    I have posted in this 4 times without any help and I am getting stressed
    Got my ukcat score back and it was pretty bad with 1730 and band 2…
    GCSEs 3A*'s 4.5 A's 2 B's (highest achiever as secondary school)
    AS AABB maths bio chem history
    Predicted A2 AAA
    I was just wondering do I even have a chance? Would I be wasting my ucas options by applying?
