    A score of 44 may not get you into the academic cut off, as the cut off last year was 44, I think, and that was without the SJT points being taken into account, as Pearson Vue messed the SJT up last year so said the scores were not valid.

    But I called the admissions team and they said last year to be above the top 50% u needed 34 last year

    Not gonna argue with what you were told, but pretty sure it was 44 last year for A100 (which would be the equivalent to 46/47 with SJT added in). 34 would mean a sub 600 UKCAT, 3 A*s and 4 A's would get you on to the next stage, and fairly sure it wouldn't! Have a trawl through the earlier pages of this thread and you'll probably find the cut off in their somewhere.

    Sorry, I recalled and found out it was actually a score of 39 that would put u in the top 50% last year

    Hi

    I have just calculated my score GCSE 6 A* and 6A gets me 6*2+2*1 = 14 points
    UKCAT (VR 640 QR 730 AR 810 and DA 740) gets me 7+8+9+8 = 32 points plus SJT Band2 = 2 points Total = 32+2+14 = 48 points Out off maximum of 55.

    Do I stand a chance??
    Looking forward to your reply/advice.

    According to last year you would easily progress to the second stage, but Nottingham don't release any information about students that pass the second stage s apply if you feel your personal statement is good

    Thanks. My PS is not that great. Do you think they give lot of weightage to PS and would reject with these stats

    If you read their admission criteria, they tell you what weighting they place on each element of the assessment

    Just to put this out there, I'm a second year medic at Nottingham and I've worked alongside admissions recently and I can confirm that the lowest score they accepted last admissions cycle was indeed 34.

    If you know that your PS isn't that great, improve it some more? You've still got time I believe

    Thanks very much for your reply. I really appreciate your help
    I read in the thread that cutof could be 46/47 (and mine being 48) makes me feel scared to apply.
    Regarding PS: I think I got all Work Experience that I could but I don't have any big acheievements to mention both in sports or academics ( Like I am not been School Captain, haven't won any great competitions Dule of Edinburgh... that makes me feel that I will get lost amongst those with these achievements...)

    What would be your advice???

    Thanks

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me.
    I'm considering applying to Nottingham but I'm very confused as to whether my stats are good enough.
    7A* 1A 1C GCSE (so 15/16 points)
    then for UKCAT:
    VR: 680
    QR: 740
    AR: 670
    DA: 670
    SJT: Band 2
    So 690 avg and 31/39 points.
    That's an overall score of 46/55? I'm confused as to how each parts weighting effects it?
    I'd appreciate any help, thanks!

    A general comment for everyone posting their stats, hopefully it doesn't come across as arsey.
    Just have a read of this:
    http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/medicine...2016-entry.pdf

    Nottingham are very transparent about their application process, you can get a good estimate of your overall "pre-interview score" using the information on that pdf.
    As I've previously stated, there was an applicant with a score of 34 that was accepted for interview last cycle, from what I was told by the admissions officer.

    Part of applying to med school is you making your own decisions on where to apply based on your strengths and the med schools that look good to you, people here can give you advice but that's about it. Things change every year (UKCAT averages are variable, the average score will also change depending on how your year group as a whole did at GCSE etc).

    My school offered only 6 IGCSEs, in which I got all A*s. So my score would be 12/16?
