    WHY does this happen?! I ended up cleaning my wardrobe, just to not sit and do some UKCAT practice. Then was complaining I've not done any!!!

    I loved both Bart's and Warwick. Southampton and Newcastle I'm less sure of because of their UKCAT requirements. What about you?

    I know what you mean. It's going to take some very creative budgeting to do it. But it just looked so amazing on the open day!

    Whats the funding situation like for a 4yr course in a London uni? Do student finance pay for accomodation?

    it will be the same for any other university: SF will give the tuition and maintenance loans if you need it, with an extra London allowance to cover the higher cost of living.

    What's your degree? I thought that Southampton took any degree subject. I thought about Kings but I thought that my UKCAT score would be riskier for them than it would be for Soton or Newcastle. Although, having said that, Soton still a big risk despite my having got a decent score.

    Does Barts not require a high UKCAT too? TBH, from what i have read Newcastle, Southampton, Kings, all require a high average.*

    Yes, I'm sorry my mistake, I should have wrote my access course. I don't have any A-Levels (my life has been a little different when it comes to education). I have an access to health science. I was't sure if Southampton accepted it. I know that most Uni's accept an Access to Medicine, but not health science. I never got a reply.*I emailed twice. I really like Southampton too. *

    I'm sorry if i've already asked, but what UKCAT score did you get?**

    According to the 2016 admissions data, the lowest score that received invitation to interview was 2790. They've estimated a score of 2110 if the DA section is removed from last years data. Newcastle's cutoff was 720. Soton and Kings are less forthcoming but someone posted on the Southampton thread that the lowest interviewed was 2900. My score is 730.

    I did an access course too, back in 2004 and subsequently took A levels to strengthen my applications. I seem to remember Southampton being very slow to reply to emails so maybe try giving them a call. I emailed them about something for a previous application cycle and the response didn't answer my question but was instead an exact copy of what was written on the website.

    Thanks, What I'll do is after I have done my UKCAT, i'll then decide which Uni's based on the score. I'll call Southampton then, if mu UKCAT score is any good.

    730 IS A GREAT SCORE! I heard that with an average of 730 most Uni's (inc Kings) will call for an interview.

    I guess there's diff info floating around. *

    I'm probably being overly cautious, but I don't want to sit UKCAT ever again! I think that the stats from UKCAT will be helpful in making the final choices.

    I hear different things about Kings. That is adding to my reluctance to apply there.

    NO, I completely feel the same and understand about UKCAT. However, Im feeling i'll need to be sitting again anyways. Im going to decide based on the UKCAT score, it may be good enough to apply anywhere (i doubt, lol), or maybe so bad that i cant apply anywhere.

    I have my preference, but when it comes to medicine, one cant be too choosy!! lol

    Do you have an idea when the stats from UKCAT will be out?*

    I tweeted them and asked if interim stats were going to be published:

    ' UKCAT will issue interim score statistics in mid to late-September 2016 and final test statistics once testing has ended.'

    waiting for the final test stats will be leaving the application too late.*

    I think they came out before application deadline last year, but not by much. The interim stats will most likely suffice, no aspect of this process is guaranteed so at some point there will have to be a jump into the abyss.

    Apparently I'm feeling particularly dramatic today. 🎭

    Haha, Im always feeling dramatic. I don't think I'll be needing to wait on interim stats. My result is going to be poor! Medify is making me feel UKCAT is not for me.

    By the way, How were your scores on Medify? Were you always doing excellent?*
