    I'm thinking of applying to Leicester for 2017 entry.

    I got 2010 in my UKCAT:
    500 in VR
    820 in AR
    690 in QR
    Band 2 in SJ

    GCSE: (6 best)
    B in English
    A in Maths
    A* in D+T
    A in Biology
    A in Physics
    A in Chemistry

    I've already completed my A levels with AAAB in Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths respectively.

    Would this be alright for Leicester?
    Go on to the official web page on entry requirements and add up your points out of 48. 24 is academics and 24 is allocated to ukcat score.

    If your total is 40+ it's worth considering applying
    We don't know the cut off score but the higher you score the better chance of getting an interview!

    So the UKCAT average is down which is a bit of a relief I score 41.5 which is pretty borderline. With mean UKCAT scores being lower this year, would I stand a chance? I have a Band 2 for SJT so I'm not sure if I should apply since SJT is used as a virtual interview station

    Did it have information on the website about losing a point at interview? I thought the idea was that SJT is assessed as MMI as opposed to what you got on UKCAT? Or did I get this wrong....

    The overall cut off won't be known but you could work out how many points your ukcat score contributes from the website

    Anyone know if Leicester would have a problem with me applying for their medicine A100 and neuroscience courses? Don't wanna be rejected straight off because I'm applying for both, although obviously neuroscience is my med backup. Thanks

    Guys, is it worth applying with 6A*,2A and 1900 ukcat. I think that's 41/48. But not sure as the symbol shows greater than 1900 for 19 points so does that include my score or would I only get 18.5 in which case my total would be 40.5. Do I have good chance?

    I'm applying to Aberdeen, Bristol and Queen's Belfast. Everything's like basically safety net choices if I tally it with my UKCAT score, 1900.

    Bristol's really PS heavy so I'm really praying my PS can like make it. Tried hard to ensure it met all the criteria they seeked for haha. What about you? What are your choices?

    We have the same UKCAT score too wow For me it's Exeter, Birmingham, and probably QUB but not sure about that yet. Best of luck, specially for Bristol!

    Whether you get an interview at Leicester is based purely on academic and ukcat achievement. My daughter applied for her back up at the same Uni as her A100 and got offers for both courses. I'm sure it's fine but if you have any doubts you could check with the admissions team.

    Thanks for your advice, I've emailed them but they haven't got back to me yet. Glad to hear that, thanks again.
