    Just rang Glasgow up.

    The cut off last year was 2570, or an average of 642.5.

    That is 60 points below my score of 2630, hmmmm.
    That is an absolutely agonising choice because everyone above the cutoff supposedly receives an interview!!!

    Edit: Just seen your sig ~ I'm applying to Cardiff :yy:

    I'm beginning to think Glasgow may be worth the risk! I cannot believe my indecisiveness! If I had your score I would apply to Glasgow... Or would I :eek3:

    I think I might sub Cardiff for Glasgow. What are your choices?

    Yeah, I'm warming to it ~ I'm indecisve as it is, especially over something that I care so much about Cardiff, Nottingham, Liverpool and one of Glasgow, SGUL, Leicester or Saint Andrews.

    What minimum score would you consider would be good, if one was to apply to Glasgow ?

    660 ? 670 ?

    Dude, apply to SGUL! Everyone who meets the academic criteria gets an interview! It's a fantastic opportunity if you have the confidence to wow at an interview.

    Yeah I'd say 670 is a pretty decent score to be applying with.

    Nah, just applying for four full five year degrees. GEP's are pretty intense - for the sake of an extra year I am happy to stick with undergraduate 5 year courses.

    Plus seeing as I'm Scottish and possess a professional degree there is no financial incentive to go for graduate entry. Bit of a shambles really that someone with an arts degree can get funding for a 4 year GEP and I can't.

    Ye SGUL will definitely give you an interview if you get the required grades but their interviews are ******* dodgy ... they have booths so for example one booth is like a scene where an actress plays a women whos rabbit died and you have to comfort her ... well random .. my mate said to the women uhhh il buy you a new one ? aha

    Yeah, they have stations and buzzers - a bit like an OSCE.

    They do have their advantage. At least if you mess up in one station you can recover in the rest. In a standard interview it is very difficult to recover from a bad start or a slip of the tongue.
