    I'm not applying for 2016 entry but I sat the UKCAT today as a sort of practice run and got 730, so happy! I keep going back and forth as to whether I'm good enough to bother applying for 2017 and this is such a boost, at least now I know I can get a competitive score to get an interview regardless of anything else

    Hi all,

    Just to clarify if you apply to a 5 year course (as a grad ofc), you must meet all their requirements right? Such as A Levels, GCSEs etc?

    Edit: I'm looking at Barts' five year course and I'm not sure if I understand correctly, but they seem to say it's okay if your degree has good enough amounts of bio/chem.. or a BB at A Level for bio and chem. Does that mean the A Level requirements are slightly different?

    http://www.smd.qmul.ac.uk/undergradu...100/index.html - That's the link I'm looking at.

    Yes. Most places have different a level requirements for grads. Bristol I think still requires AAA or similar.

    For Bristol:

    Graduates are required to obtain a 2:1 in their degree and at least AAB at A-level including Chemistry at grade A and one other lab-based science subject at grade B or above. Also a minimum of four subjects studied at AS-level, with minimum grade C in fourth subject OR a minimum of grade C in an EPQ.

    I think ForestCat was referring to A-level requirements for grads applying to the 5 year course at Bristol

    Indeed. And that Bristol tend to still require similar a levels for grads as undergrad applicants. Whereas a lot of other 5 courses have more relaxed a level requirements for grads applying (they allow it to be compensated by degree).

    They ARE the requirements for graduates on the 5 year A100 course!

    Yes, but I was just referring to Bristol as an example of a med still requiring quite high a-levels from grads. Many 5 year courses have more lax a-level requirements. I didn't need to know the requirements.

    I was replying to Sam! I know what you were saying, I think that she/he just misinterpreted what I was saying.

    Oh, yes, I also see what you were saying. Many places do relax their requirements, but Bristol remain very fussy.

    Do a lot of graduates apply for A100 as opposed to a100? Are school leavers and grads treated differently for a100 ( i.e grads need a higher interview score)?

    lol lol just sat my UKCAT and got 690. Still going to try even though my UKCAT is a little on the low side for some of my preferred unis. Really want to go to Warwick and I know the lowest offer they gave had a 700 average last year (or year before). So here's hoping everyone did worse than before.

    Anyone have any advice on which unis to definitely avoid?

    Meh. At least I improved on my score from first time around.

    I would avoid Southampton and Newcastle for sure. If you're a science grad then kings might be ok since I reckon their cut off will go down this year due to the narrowing of their applicant pool.

    This may be a silly question but with the GAMSAT cut offs for Notss and SGUL, if you're applying with a predicted degree class do you have to meet the cut off for that class?

    There's no benefit what so ever to sending your application off early.

    Does anyone know if Birmingham only accept a 1st class degree or will they take into account the type of degree/masters if you only have a 2:1?

    They said they typically consider 1sts and high 2:is but not sure if they distinguish between master's etc
