    I have predictions of AAA but I reaaaaally still wanna apply, should I go for it or is it pointless?
    From what I gather, that's fine if you come from a state school, if you go/went to a grammar school then you'll need A*AA. This is based off what people here were given

    Ah cool! Don't forget some people may not apply there after seeing last years cut off thinking they won't make it so the cutoff may just be higher that we expect I'm also applying to Manchester and Queen Mary. How about yourself?

    Ah nice, It really depends how risky I'm willing to go - my safe options would be St.Georges and UEA, but I might swap one for Manchester, but Im not sure if my 680 will be enough :L

    If you've got 2 safe options I guess 1 or 2 risky options would be okay. I got 707.5 but I'm a WP Plus applicant for Manchester

    Manchester now look at the top 1000 ukcat scores.

    With 680 you have a good chance! Last year's cut off was only around 35 above the average, and also this year scores have come down

    So how do they differentiate between the top 1000 applicants?

    The PS, but they will give roughly 850-900 interviews to the top 1000, so it's pretty good!

    But isn't that what they did last year, and the cutoff was 705?

    yeah but the scores are considerably down. This years scores are more similar to the 2013 entry where the cut off was 640 (with WP flag) / 662 (for everyone else)

    Hey guys, I'm a gap year applicant (First time applying to Exeter). My stats are:

    GCSE: 2A* 9As B
    A Level (achieved): A*AAa
    UKCAT: 717.5 (2870) Band 1

    I know they don't focus on GCSEs. My question is, am I at an advantage because I have already achieved my A levels compared to someone with predicted A*AA? If not, that is ridiculous in my opinion. It's easy to be predicted 5A*s but whether you achieve that or not is a whole other story!

    99% sure you'll get an interview, once there it's all on your performance in the interview

    Hey guys! I am thinking of applying to Exeter but I am a bit worried about my UKCAT.. I got 665 average. But my academics are very good! I am doing the IB and I got 44/45, when they only require 36-38! Do you think I should risk it?
    Thank you!!

    They only look at ukcat and predicted/achieved a levels? i have no idea about the IB but 665 might just make it this year
