    1.How many Ucas points will this be equivalent to?

    go to the following site to calculate your UCAS points - http://www.ucas.com/students/ucas_tariff/tarifftables/

    2. How many points do i need to have to apply for med in UK?

    If I am not wrong, Usually universities have a requirement of AAA that is 360 UCAS points excluding 4th subject.. But as Med is the most competitive course applicants who get offers usually have more than the requirement.

    3. Do i need to sit UKCAT? How high will i need to score?

    YOu may have to sit for UKCAT or BMAT or both, depends on the universities you are applying to. Check university website for requirements.

    4. What schools offer undergraduate med in LONDON?

    -Cant help you with this one. I am not a prospective med student..


    5. What schools dont need interviews + entry requirements ( ucas points...,etc)

    -I think most medical applicants need interviews, but as you are international student, you may be offered skype interview, or you maybe exempted from interview.. again you have to check university website

    You should post your questions in Med applicants thread

    -You will get good answers there..
