    Out of the BMAT unis, which one is the least BMAT orientated?

    I guess you guys will know because you've already applied

    Thanks in advance
    UCL in particular I've heard put quite a lot of emphasis on BMAT.

    Ah well, that's medical admissions for you; they never make sense

    In respect to the other BMAT school, UCL actually puts less emphasis, as they sort of do a similar thing with kings where the lower your BMAT, the higher you need to score for everything else to get an interview. Places like Imperial employ a cut off for all 3 sections.

    Thanks When you say 'everything else,' is that academics (GCSEs etc) or does it include the PS?

    And does UCL put a lot of emphasis on GCSEs in their selection criteria? I know it won't be like Birmingham, but maybe like King's?

    I've heard from my teacher (A layperson for UCL) that BMAT is very important to UCL. I don't thick they're that GCSE heavy, it's nowhere near Oxford or Birmingham levels anyway. I've always though of Cambridge has having the lowest use of BMAT due to their use of AS level UMS. Just my opinion though :dontknow:

    Imo BMAT is important to all BMAT schools but what I said for UCL is true, though I did not state it means they don't regard it as important. However, you're right about Cambridge - I completely forgot about them

    Yep :yep: that's what I mean by everything else, but including AS results and predictions. I don't recall them wanting high gcses like bham, as they use other stuff too; obv the higher your gcses are the better. They do request for a GCSE language though.

    Why the excitement about universities getting the UKCAT results? It'll take time for them to sort out who to call for interview and who to reject.

    Thanks for the help I might be applying there now

    one last question (sorry!). Are you at an advantage if you did more than oe language at GCSE? and are you at an advantage if you got a high grade in that language?

    Probably because it's just another step.
    There was excitement when people were taking the UKCAT.
    Then there was excitement when people started their personal statements.
    Then when the UCAS got sent off.
    After that it was the "Oh Noooooo acknowledgement hasn't arrived yet have I failed already" bit.
    Now it is the "Universities know how **** I've done on my UKCAT I'm going to get rejected".

    We are still waiting for the "OMG they still haven't sent me an interview this must mean I am going to get rejected" step.
    And the "**** I've done crap in my interview I must be getting a rejection now".
