    Just did my UKCAT today:
    VR 630
    QR 740
    AR 750
    SJ band 2
    overall 2120, average 706.6

    Do you guys reckon this will be good enough for Newcastle? I am planning on applying via the transfer to medicine scheme (starting on the biomed course in a couple of weeks!) I really don't know what to make of this score and what sucks is Newcastle is my only hope for 2017 entry to medicine
    I thought you'd have to sit it at the end of your first year of biomed

    It specifies on the website that the UKCAT has to be sat within 2 years of commencing stage 1 (ie 2015 or 2016)

    Possibly. No one on here can say with any certainty though.

    Best of luck

    Your UKCAT is actually amazing, don't let yourself think otherwise because of the scores that you see on here
    I think your score has been over the threshold for every year (ignoring 2014), so it is very possible that you could get an interview

    Yes, I definitely am.
    I went to the open day yesterday, and it was a really nice place, wit good facilities and the course sounds amazing. It's got an amazing reputation, also
    It is definitely my safest choice, though

    So we're sharing up to 3 of our choices!

    Right now I feel that I'm leaning more towards Barts, because it would mean I don't have to take the BMAT, but I'm still not certain

    Which uni is your first choice? Ah, I was going to take the BMAT too, but now I am not. Oh well, if you really like BSMS then go for BMAT, but yeah Barts seems to be really good too.

    UEA is currently my first choice, but there is something about studying in London that just appeals to me
    Is Newcastle your first choice?

    I feel you aha, and that is why Barts is my first choice. Also, I have a decent tariff but again I am an international student, so I need a really strong application.

    My tariff isn't amazing (I think it is 208 if I'm predicted an A for EPQ?) but my UKCAT counters it, so hopefully I'd be offered an interview
    I feel for you with the international application. It must be even more difficult for you

    Is it worth me applying with a 717 average? I have 9A* 1A at GCSE, AAAA at AS and A*A*A for bio, Chem and maths a level, but I know most of these academics will be lost on Newcastle since all they are about is UKCAT. But I really love the course and the city, do you think 717 will be enough for interview?
