    How on earth did you get an A prediction from one of your C or D AS grades?

    I got a B in bio, and yet my teacher's is refusing to predict me an A :cry:
    That was the same for me last year, my teacher refused to predict me an A in Bio and A* in Chem. So I have to begged them for it and asked my parent to write a letter for the predictions. Whereas my mate, who got a U in her Chem but because she wanted to do Med, my teacher was happily predicted her an A. At the end, I proved them wrong by achieved the grades. Sadly, my friend also proved that my teacher is wrong by not achieved her A in chemistry.

    Guys, please could someone help in deciding Unis?

    GCSE: 7A* 4A 1B
    A level prediction: A*AS
    UKCAT: 690, band 3
    Around 5 weeks WE
    8 months Voluntary work
    Decent PS

    Thinking of applying to:
    Manchester, Birmingham, Leicester, St George

    Don't really get the contextual data that Manchester & Birmingham look into. Do I stand a chance of interview in any of above? Please advise, thanks!

    Most likely you will get 4 interviews based on previous years cut offs and scoring for leicester and birmingham!

    Birmingham and leicester do not use cut offs. Birmingham weight the UKCAT with a 30% weighting compared to GCSE"s which are weighted at 70%. Leicester also have a UKCAT scoring system which can be found on their website

    Yeah, Birmingham have application score as 70% GCSE + 30% UKCAT. The website shows score for 2015 but not for 2016. Thought you had already researched 😊 Thanks for your reply!

    They have tiers of predicted grades. They invite highest tiers to interview and the tier where they can only select a partial amount as they are running out of interviews is when they use the UKCAT cut off.

    Well what they said is true, a doctor must contribute a lot of his time towards his job. Dentists have more free time and they don't really have to bring their work home.
