    I only got a 620 in my UKCAT and a Band 2 in SJT, my VR draaagged my score down. I have 21 points with the GCSE point system and predicted AAA, I have soome work experience but have some planned in this half term (after the deadline), should I mention this on my statement too? And would I have a shot at getting into Liverpool?
    Liverpool is 70% statement so realistically if you have a great statement and haven't either absolutely failed ur ukcat or As' you have a chance of getting in.

    Where did you get the info about it being 70% PS? I thought that was Bristol?

    I submitted my UCAS application and I opted for Aberdeen as a last minute choice instead of Liverpool. I was thinking of changing it back to Liverpool since I was told Aberdeen's cut-off points for an offer was 620 Avg Here's mine.

    IGCSEs: 7A* 2As
    IB Predicted Grades: 43/45 IB points
    UKCAT: 630 Avg (1890 + SJT Band 3 :/)

    Should I change it back to Liverpool once the welcome message from UCAS comes out, which allows students to change their universities up to 7 days? I'm so stressed out right now

    The thing about Aberdeen is, they don't forget your UKCAT score once you get to interview. If invited to interview, they look at 20% UKCAT, 30% academics and then the remaining 50% comes from the interview itself. This is why the lowest scoring UKCAT offer holder at Aberdeen was 620 in 2015. However if you feel as though your interview skills are strong, I can't encourage you not to apply. At the same time, bear in mind that your UKCAT is more than "competitive" enough for Liverpool, and you wold score top marks for GCSE's - it all just comes down to your personal statement. Hope that information helps you decide.

    Yeah I will, mostly because my ukcat (637 average) isn't really competitive for most unis and I feel my PS is much stronger than last year (gap year applicant)

    I think I'm going for liverpool as first choice, sadly I think my personal statement is probably the weakest part of my application

    I would say that I have a pretty strong PS, 13 months volunteering at a care home, 1 week pharmacy, 1 week at a medical centre. Currently got a part time job.

    Not too sure if it's my first choice but I was going to replace it with Aberdeen. Should I? Because I'm pretty frightened with the cut-off scores last year, it was a 620 Avg and I only got a 630 Avg (1890 + SJT Band 3) for my UKCAT exam this year.

    A couple of my peers suggested to go with Liverpool since their cut-off score this year would be indicated as 1750-1850 based on the new format. I hope I'll make the right choice!

    Hi is anyone applying as a graduate to the A100 medicine course at Liverpool as well as the A101 course?
    I'm in a bit of crappy situation.

    I rang up Liverpool and they are saying that I need to mention in my personal statement why I would defer entry for the 5 year course even tho it's only for financial reasons.

    The problem is if I do that then it sounds like I'm wanting defer entry for all courses even tho I've applied for the 4 year one (you can't defer for this one)

    I'm so confused about what to do?
    Please helppppppp should I include the reason or just leave it out?

    Surely they can just ask me at interview?
