    It might be worth to decide between the two. When the time comes, if your BMAT is not as good as you hoped, you would only get 1 rejection instead of 2. Since you've already visited both of them, have a look at their course structures? For example, both of them requires an integrated year, but say you want to do Pharmacology and it's only available at UCL, that might help you to choose UCL over Imperial.
    True...I don't know though, what if, by luck and hard work, my BMAT goes well and I don't get the chance to go to one of those uni's because I didn't take the risk and apply there, it would be a waste...

    Yeah, but you're saying it yourself - it is a risk, and when it comes to medical school applications, its already so unlikely that any of us will get a place that it would surely be better to take a less risky route?

    Obviously its your choice, and if you REALLY can't decide then fine. But I'd really try and rethink it. Any medical school will get you the same degree, and while you might think that one of your choices would be your last resort, you've got to remember that the most likely thing to happen is that you'll be rejected from all four, or you'll have one offer so you won't even get a choice. Realistically, thats what the statistics show - maybe it won't happen for you, but its surely better to rik one rejection rather than two?

    Yeah, that's true... :/ I'm going to have a think, but probably in June, after exams are over and done with
