    Due to the mean scores being published today at 1893, does anyone have any more information/advice on what they suspect the cut off could be for medicine at Newcastle???

    VR: 590
    QR:700
    AR: 640
    so total of 1930 which is awful
    Band 1 in SJ which I'm happy about but does Newcastle even look at that?
    My gcse grades aren't the best either with 5 A's and 6 B's. Currently have predicted A's in my a levels but I really wanted to get an interview for Newcastle but there is no way ill even be considered with that ukcat score
    Is the ukcat literally all that Newcastle looks at for interviews? I dont know what to do
    You should still stand a good chance and consider applying considering that the averages have gone down to 1893 which puts you in the higher half of applicants

    Definitely won't be that for undergraduate entry. Maybe for their GEP, though, but I believe there is a separate thread for that.

    Does anyone know if the entry requirements for graduates for A100 is the same as A101? For their 4 year course (A101), they only look at your university degree and UKCAT score rather than your A Levels.

    Unfortunately, I did not take A Level Chemistry so I don't believe I would meet the standard A100 requirements?

    If you got AAA including biology at A level you need an A in GCSE chemistry.
    "if only one of Biology and/or Chemistry is offered at A or AS level, the other should be offered at GCSE grade A (or Dual Award Science grade A)."

    I'm a graduate applying to the undergrad course (who happens to be doing my undergrad at ncl already!) and they don't look at your a levels at all if you have a degree. What's your degree in? If it's not Chem inclusive or science based it'd be best to call the admissions team and have a chat to them. Don't worry, they're super friendly! 🙂

    To be honest it has nothing to do with the national average. It's all based on the scores of those who apply to Newcastle...if everyone who applies has 800+ then the cut off will be 800+ even if the national average is 500. Obviously that's a hugely exaggerated number but you see my point.

    Just chill out and make your own decisions; don't listen to fear mongering and speculation and remember that most people on here who are willing to post their score have a high one. It's all in the lap of the gods really 🙂

    I'm just finishing up my Biomed degree at Newcastle; applying to stay here for my medical degree. I'm pretty well versed in all the admin procedures/policies so if you've got any questions about that or about the uni/med school/anything else then just ask! 🙂

    They look at your highest level qualification, so just your degree would suffice!

    Hi, I'd love to apply for Newcastle but not sure whether it's worth it or not as my UKCAT isn't great?
    GCSE's: 9A* and 3A
    AS results: AAAA (Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Religious Studies)
    UKCAT: 650 average (VR 530, QR 710, AR 700, SJT Band 2)

    Would it be a wasted application or would I stand a chance of an interview? Thanks!
    Probably a waste, wouldn't risk it it with a UKCAT sub 700

    I reckon youd be in for a chance but it wouldnt be a safe bet....no way of telling who's applying with what UKCAT but i'm being cautiously optimistic as the overall average has dropped this year. Remember, they dont look at SJT so it doesnt matter what band you are
