    No, with those grades you would get 18/18 and if your personal statement was good you'd get an interview .

    You can't get better GCSEs for Liverpool. I'd say get many people to help you on your PS by reading through it etc... (friends & family)

    i emailed them and they will accept resit applicants without extenuating circumstances, you have to reflect on it in your personal statement though but that bit has stumped me, i don't know what to write apart from the fact that i was complacent
    Yeah I don't know what to write either. What were your A levels if you don't mind me asking?

    I got AAB, I missed the A in Biology by 3 marks missed all my offers as a result. I'm guessing you're a resit applicant as well then

    But do they not consider resit applicants who don't have extenuating circumstances?

    Yes they do go for it

    Is it risky to apply to both Bristol and Liverpool?
    I really love liverpool and i'd get 18/18 for my GCSEs
    I didn't do very well in my ukcat and so I'm choices are slightly limited so I was thinking Bristol but I've been told it might be risky to apply to two unis that looks a lot on ps... :/
    Not sure what to do so advice would be appreciated

    I'm the same as you but I've decided that I'm going to take the risk and apply for both
    In the end it's all a big risk and you never know your ps might be amazing and you could get offers for interviews from both!
    what are you other choices?

    Imperial for sure, and then maybe Leeds (again the issue that both are BMAT worries me a bit, but since they've only introduced BMAT this year cut offs may be lower so I think I might take the chance)

    I used to be sure about imperial but now I've swapped it for Leeds (same BMAT issue)
    I'm hoping fewer people will apply to leeds because of the new introduction of the BMAT plus they don't use Section 3 for ranking candidates which is good
    So I'm thinking SGUL because they aren't too serious about the UKCAT

    aha that's great, saves you having to do a resit and puts you in a much better position!
