    AFAIK, as long all your modules are taken within 2 years, resitting AS modules should be fine.

    Okay, thanks. Do you know what their requirements are for the UKCAT? Or have any figures from previous years? Can't seem to find information anywhere :L
    By cut of score of last year's UKCAT then:

    Leeds - About 300

    Newcastle - 675

    Nottingham - About 300

    This can't be true. The dean of Nottingham invented the UKCAT and therefore having a UKCAT cut off of 300 is impossible. I believe it will have been high 600 to low 700 as a cut-off for them. Leeds will be somewhere in the mid to high 600s as well I believe.

    My program was only to be used as a guide to applying. Not as a reference manual. Nottingham and Leeds, and several other universities did not publicize their cutoffs but required the UKCAT to be taken, thus the "300", the minimum score you can attain if you took it.

    To the OP, Leeds uses a scoring system. If you get over 700, you get 1 bonus point. If not, 0 points. Simple as that.

    Neither Leeds or Nottingham use a cut off, Nottingham incorporates the score along with GCSEs, PS and other things to rank candidates and then interview, whereas Leeds also uses a scoring system, but the only use of UKCAT is +1 point if average is over 700.

    Hence the 'I believe' because I was merely pointing out it was not 300. Either way, I doubt anyone with a UKCAT below 650 will find it easy to get into either university.

    So with a score of 682.5 I should be ok with both universities?

    I can't say that for certain either. It's definitely a good UKCAT score, but it will be of no benefit for Leeds in getting you that +1 point for a score above 700.

    Nottingham's UKCAT is probably (and this is just my opinion) around that mark so the rest of your application will also be crucial I imagine.

    A lot of them will. 645 is NOT a terrible score. You can try applying to universities like Leeds which have very little weighting on the UKCAT.

    Enter your UKCAT into this program and it will tell you where you are eligible to apply for with that score. That should help you narrow things down.

    Don't worry! Like the others have said, it's not a bad score. Try looking into Liverpool/Lancs, Leeds, HYMS - PS heavy unis essentially.

    Did my UKCAT yesterday and got 717.5 average. Will I be okay applying to Kings, Newcastle, and Leicester? Research tells me I should be fine but I don't want to be missing anything. Also which unis put more emphasis on the UKCAT from Southampton and Nottingham?

    Finally I got 560 for VR. Will this affect my application even though I've got above 800 for DA and AR and 700 for QR?

    Thanks!

    Well done! I've researched every medical school in england and with that score you are fine with kings, leciester
    Newcastle? There's a lot of speculation, I'm not too sure

    How was DA? Was it easier than 600Q official PT, Kaplan?
