    Hi guys. I am a european applicant with Ucas tarrif 740 (Ib 44/45 and A's physics, no Gcses) with 732,5 in ukcat. I will be applying for deffered entry due to age restrictions (too young). Is it more difficult to get a deffered place? Also, it is the only uni I will be applying fo deffered entry as the other unis do not have any age restrictions, so I cannot mention my plans in my PS for the gap year. What do you advise me to do. I want to go to London and my only choices are Kings and Barts. Are my scores good enough for Kings, too?

    Riiiight.

    I have AAAA at AS and am going to continue all 4 to A2. Can hopefully get predicted AAAA-A*A*AA.
    My UKCAT is 2,840.

    I also have other qualifications (OCR Nationals, EPQ etc) that I think add up to 260 UCAS points.

    Can anyone tell me what my chances would be like at Barts?

    Thank you
    That seems like a very competitive score, last year you would have definitely gotten an interview. You have strong chances

    Combing your UCAS tarrif and UKCAT score, you are definitely good enough to apply. I don't think applying for differed would disadvantage you in any way. However, I think Kings need/like GCSEs, so not too sure about that. You can always email the admissions staff, they're very helpful from experience

    My stats have changed from when I posted this.. my Sixth Form is basically saying I can't carry on all 4 to A2 and be predicted A's. So I' be doing Bio Chem and History at A2 and will be predicted AAA, giving me 620 UCAS points prediction. Would I still be safe fro an interview?

    Alright, great! People keep saying because I don't have 4 A2 I'm gonna get rejected, I'm guessing this is wrong?

    Wait... I'm having a minor freak out. Do Barts consider ANY tariffable qualification? I have:

    AAA prediction = 360
    Further A at AS = 60
    A in EPQ prediction = 60
    Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at Merit = 80
    OCR Level 3 National Certificate at Distinction = 120

    So that works out at 680... will they count my EPQ prediction in the tariff and are those qualifications acceptable?

    Yes. They'll count all your UCAS points.

    Hey, your high UCAS tariff makes up for the score. A mid-range example last year with the same UCAS tariff as you needed 605 in the UKCAT to get an interview

    Hi guys,

    How exactly do you calculate UCAS points?

    Do you just use the predicted grades for A2 and not include AS grades?

    So 620 is cossidered a high tariff given that I am only continuing 3 A2s? and should I do 4 A2s for the sake of getting a better tariff or will 620 be ok?

    Hi guys,
    Im a student studying in Egypt where the only Examination boards we have are EDEXCEL and CAMBRIDGE.

    Anyway, I wanted to apply for medicine but im really stressed about my ucas tariff points. Stuff like Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at Merit &
    OCR Level 3 National Certificate at Distinction

    which people have ucas points for really puts me off from applying. In Egypt, we have only THREE years to do IGCSEs and ALEVELS.
    Anyway, I was predicting 3 As or A*AA at A LEVEL chemistry biology and Mathematics with a A/B at AS physics. that gives me about 440 tariff points I guess which is pretty low I think even if I meet the requirements. What would you guys suggest for a hopeless student like me. And am I supposed to include the AS grades from the ALEVELS in the ucas tariff points?

    Thanks a lot. :confused:

    620 is definitely okay I've only got a score of 530 :L

    I suppose no one can tell but do you think the mid range tariff points will increase by a lot this year?

    OMG! My son has just rang me after completing his UKCAT today, scored 3260 (average 815) and also has a 660 UCAS score (actual A-levels + other items as he is a re-applicant). Will definitely be applying to Barts as was on his target list anyway.

    That is excellent news for him. Is he considering UKCAT-heavy universities?
