    What do you mean you haven't decided ? I can see your options in your sig.

    I'd personally avoid kings with that UKCAT.

    Leeds should be one of your choices if you're good at Chemistry.
    Their interview is very good and they're generally very swift and pleasant in responding to correspondence. It's also a very good medical school.

    Oh and also UEA, not that I'm biased or anything. It's just we're unique and amazing meds/pre meds

    I called aberdeen, and they were a bit unclear as to whether they looked at AS grades :/

    but liverpool i score 17/18 on their points system, so I think I better apply there.

    I don't meet the criteria for UEA

    I got a B for AS chem, so leeds probably will hate me :/

    How do you not meet the criteria?
    I'm sure they only wanted 6A's for A100?

    If you qualify for the A2L scheme, which you should research ASAP if you haven't already, then that will help you quite a bit.

    If you're predicted AAA for A2 and got a B for chem with say AA in your other subjects then I'm guessing it shouldn't be a very detrimental factor. But, I do speak as someone who went through A2L.

    If so, I don't qualify.

    You're far more likely to get interviewed by a university you apply to than a university you don't.



    If I were you though liverpool may be a good shot.
    You're above their GCSE threshold (even with the two short courses)
    They don't rate the UKCAT
    And i'm assuming you've got your statement and all sorted.
