    Forgot to write an "and" in my personal statement between two words, my application was sent off on Thursday, called UCAS and they told me to contact the universities with my edited version (with the and), do you think me contacting them before the deadline will give me a chance of them replacing the incorrect personal statement?

    Hello everyone,

    I need help to decide whther i should apply to these unis or whther i should hav any safe choices

    Stats
    GCSE - 14A*
    As level - AAAAA
    A level predictions - A*A*A*
    Ukcat - 817

    Choices
    Cambridge
    UCL
    Manchester
    Liverpool
    Hi there,

    Im gunna be honest and say you couldve guaranteed interview at other unis however if you like your choices then definitely apply because your application looks really good for any university.

    The risk is that if you screw up the bmat your stuck with two unis where you're not totally guaranteed interview due to the subjectiveness of both your personal statement (for liverpool) and the NAI form (for manchester).

    But then again its your decision and i hope you the very best. 😎👍🏿

    Its definitely best to try and contact them. You dont want to have to tell them later on because anything should be provided before the deadline.

    Best of luck

    Your stats are amazing! I think you'll definately get offers from manchester and Liverpool and with a score like that on the ukcat, you'll likely ace at least the first section of the BMAT

    Thank you this was very helpful. I understand where your coming from but i really like these two unis and that is the reason i have applied to them. I know their risky but theres no point in applying to unis i dont even want to study at.

    With that UKCAT definitely Newcastle, and with those GCSEs definitely Cardiff.

    I would have gone with Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton as they rank Ukcat. I would have gone with oxford rather than Cambridge with your GCSEs unless your AS ums is above 95, and definitely Cardiff with those GCSEs! I'm not sure about UCL though, sorry.

    Would I get any offers this year, please be honest. Should I swap Exeter with Sheffield a because there is no point in applying with 3A predictions as people apply with 3A* predictions? Should I change any other choices, please tell me?Thanks in advance guys.

    His profile seems too good to be true, given the weak logic he's used when choosing those universities.
    I gotta agree with you there - EVERYTHING about his stats are outstanding which I have never before seen.

    I think Exeter seems a bit of a risk seeing as they use a tier system where the more A* predictions the better and as you say a lot of people will be applying with A*A*A*/A*A*A, however anything could happen so fingers crossed. Plymouth and Aberdeen both seem like fair choices. Best of luck with your application!

    Hi I was wondering whether you knew how exter use the ukcat? I have 3A* predictions and also predicted a* in the epq. However I got 620 band 1 ukcat. Do they only apply the ukcat to yhe lower tiers or will they apply It to tier 1 if it is oversubscribed? Thanks

    I believe they only look at UKCAT if tier 1 (3A* predictions or A*A*A achieved) is oversubscribed, however I am not 100% sure on this as I'm not applying here so I haven't looked in too much detail at their admissions policy, but I'm sure someone else on here will be able to offer more concrete advice.

    Hi, I would like some advice please

    I am on a second gap year A*A*A* in Bio Chem and Maths, A at AS Further Maths (on my gap year I done A2 further maths and got an A*, i know this does not count).
    723 UKCAT7A*s and 4 A's GCSE
    Work Experience at Hospital, GP Surgery, Pharmacy, Tanzanian Hospital, Care Home, I tutor GCSE Student and Coach Martial Arts

    Last year I got rejected with 685 Band 3 from Kings(interview) Queen Mary(interview) SGUL(interview) Notts(no interview)

    Is it worth while to reapply to kings. i'm planning to apply to Leicester and Manchester. Not sure about the 4th, Glasgow, keele, uea, exeter?
    Hmm I don't think you should apply to foundation courses as your grades are good enough. So you should Deffo apply for 5 year courses. Deffo recommend Leicester. Although most unis don't take retakes unless extinguishing circumstances. It's the retake but that's the problem. Good luck- I'll message you if I hear anything about unis that take retakes. Try to apply to kings though-

    In a following reply, he said 'their' instead of 'they're'. No one with 14A*s and 5As at AS makes that mistake, regardless of how casual they're being. I know I'm being pedantic and sound bitter, but they are clearly lying. No one gets 5As then drops two A levels, knowing they'd be perfectly capable of doing 4 and achieving 4A*s, if not all 5.
    That makes so much more sense than someone with a UkCAT of 817 (817!) not applying to at least one UKCAT heavy uni where they are quaranteed an interview
