    I think most people would want to know their exam and ukcat results first before making any decisions. But it will pick up soon. How is summer exam prep going.

    To the best of my knowledge it is not as UKCAT hungry as the likes of sheffield and manchester. They only use it as a tie breaker after interviews. Hope this helps.

    I've just sat my UKCat for entry to BSMS 2012.

    The computer calculator is a nightmare. Definitely slowed me down in the quantitive section.

    I scored an overall average of 600 but two subsections were over 600 and two were under 600. I know that means I'm very average but I'm not sure if that is a pass or fail.

    I'm starting the Access to Medicine Course at Sussex Downs College in Lewes and had my interview in BSMS back in June for the 2012 start. It is a linked place dependent on performance on the Access Course and I'm waiting to hear if I'm one of 7 or 8 which will achieve the linked place out of a cohort of about 18. If I'm not, then I get another chance in February where they select another 4 or 5. If I don't get a linked place, thats it no Doctor!!

    If I get a linked place, I'm not sure how much of an impact this UKCat score will have. I'm very average on this test but have the brains to complete the degree and what I believe is a strong personals statement but we'll see.

    Just waiting to hear now from BSMS... I wish they'd hurry up my nerves are in shreds!!!

    Average of 600 could be worse :yep:

    if you take a look at what info was offered to us by applicants last year: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...ton_and_Sussex you can see that a user named stephen88 managed to get an interview with an average of 595
    Unfortunately not everyone got back to me so the info's missing in places :sadnod:
