    But surely they consider GCSE score's as well don't they, or wouldn't that mean everyone gets max of 15 if they are predicted 4A's at A-level?
    Do you mean 4A's at AS or at A level?

    Well, I'm not too sure because I think they take AS's and GCSE's into account as well. I'm not applying here because of their ambiguous selection process but it's suck a lovely uni and the course is great.

    I understand what you mean there are very vague but I'm going to risk it as I loved the medical school so much at the open day

    Hi guys,
    just found this on their website about the GCSE requirements. Hope it helps
    BSMS recognises that individuals develop in different ways. We will not penalise applicants who have achieved high A level grades or graduates with good degrees on account of modest GCSE or A level grades obtained in the past. If you apply to us having already obtained your entry-level qualification, then your assessment will be based primarily on this profile rather than on GCSE/AS levels. However, if you are applying on the basis of predicted grades, be they A-levels or IB, we will need to have some means of determining how likely it is that you are going to achieve the predictions made for you. We have to do this on the basis of the qualifications that you have already obtained, namely your AS levels (if you are on a A-level course) and your GCSEs.

    The grades that you obtained for your AS levels will be particularly important since they give us a recent measure of your ability, but we do also look at GCSEs in some circumstances (as in the case of those offering IB). When we look at GCSEs, we are primarily interested in the A and A* grades and so the more of these you have the better. However, strong AS grades (where appropriate) will compensate for a weaker GCSE profile. Please note that, for all applicants, we expect grades B in GCSE Maths & English (or their equivalent). Re-taken grades or equivalent qualifications are acceptable as evidence of adequate literacy and numeracy.

    They don't have a cut-off. They use it after interviews to distinguish between candidates that have the same points in the application process. They use it as a tie-breaker.

    They do ask for AAA but ive done a pre-med course and i got top marks for that so they accept that even if my A-levels arent that great.
