    Thank you! I think it is the most up-to-date information! :cool:

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/UKCAT - use this website instead :rolleyes:
    I'd like to point out that the UKCAT is only 1hr 33mins long, so could a moderator please edit that bit?

    Your grades are not rubbish -you are a star performer.I am also taking a gap year as I didnt get in last time but as the song goes .....pick yourself up,dust yourself down and start all over again. Look at Beska -he was in the same place and he is now flying high at Newcastle!!!!!

    Hello there,

    There are lots of places which would consider your application, have a read of the wiki here:

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/medicine

    As you are probably all too aware, medicine is extremely competitive and you should consider it carefully before deciding to apply. It is not impossible for you to get an offer, but you will be up against other better qualified applicants.

    If you have an excellent personal statement and think you can put up a good interview performance then you have a chance.

    Just to clarify, as long as I've got AAA prediction, my AS's don't matter that much, right? Obviously if my AS's were like EEE it would matter, but in the subjects I'm carrying onto A2 I've got AAC (the C is due to coursework; I'll sort that in Sept and should have a B instead), and my other AS's, do they matter? Apart from perhaps the 4th one?

    As far as I know, all non-private schools need to cash in AS levels on UCAS now, so that C might be worrying?

    As long as you get it sorted by September and it is officially a B by the time you send off your form, I think it will be okay

    Nope. Your AS Levels don't matter as much However some universities like Birmingham have now started to put more emphasis on AS scores so you might want to research fully before applying.

    Ahh ok, so does that mean that even if I redo my coursework (it's actually a chemistry ISA but we call it coursework!) my official grade might not change until January when I redo a module, or even June? I've put it as pending on UCAS for now.

    Well I was told by my school that they HAVE to show AS level grades now?
    I guess it's a retake you mean so I'm not sure! Ask your school. I guess as long as your reference for chemistry is strong and the school fully believe you can get the A, it should be fine

    Hello!
    I really REALLY wanted to apply to King's but got a UKCAT score of 645 I wonder if you could help me out here... the website says they take the top X of UKCAT score BUT they also say they took applicants with UKCAT scores as low as 570... so, I 'm not sure what's going on there!!

    Kings apparently operate on a sliding scale - the higher your UKCAT, the lower your GCSEs need to be and nice versa. So if someone applied with like 14A*s, I'm guessing their UKCAT of 570 would be overridden. So if you have really good GCSEs, you're probably in with a chance
