    Thanks, and is the course actually done over the internet?
    yeah all over the internet, if it's the same as the ukcat one which I imagine it will be, they have 'tutorials' which are basically like an online textbook explaining what each subtest aims to test, how it's done, what's expected of you, common errors, different strategies e.t.c. and then there's a huge bank of practise questions and finally three different mock exams only problem is you don't have an actual tutor to explain where you go wrong, however the answer explanations tend to be sufficient for you to work that out for yourself! I'd phone them to find out when they're releasing the BMAT one though. and also the BMAT 400 q's along with official past papers tend to be good for prep!

    We have the same GCSE's :ahee:

    Your first 3 choices are good, but Exeter have a UKCAT overall cut off of 625+ from last year. I would suggest UEA? I'm sure UEA consider resits..
    Cool
    I would apply for UEA but they ask for an A* in Chemistry if I resit it which is impossible for me :P
    So i guess i'll just apply to exeter and be prepared for a rejection as I have no other choice

    Sure but why don't you put biomed or something like that as your 4th and 5th option? Instead of applying somewhere where you know is very risky.

    Plymouth is simile to Exeter cut off too.

    Not much point as I'm applying to study Medicine abroad too. So if I don't get in here then I'm off abroad as they have lower entry requirements abroad and bio med doesn't interest me much

    Yep Cardiff is a better choice. Unfortunately I can't apply there as I have no extenuating circumstances.

    Your ukcat isn't that unbalanced, mine ranged from 510-900. Nottingham put weighings on each ukcat category but no one knows how its done. Other universities have cut off for each section but to be honest you've proberbly exceeded them so you could apply to almost anywhere.

    Hi all, I am a re-appling for medical school hoping for some interviews this time as last year my ukcat was 580 and AS's were ABC (what was I thinking)

    Currently I have:
    A levels: AAA in Bio Chem and Maths with A at AS in History
    4A*'s and 6 A's at GCSE
    UKCAT score of 705 (although I got 460 in VR haha) SJT Band 3
    Work experience of a week in a hospital, coaching a special needs rugby team, care assistant job in a care home and I'm off to volunteer in a hospital in Africa for 3 months in May.

    I am hoping to apply to Newcastle, Glasgow, Dundee and UEA/Sheffield/Hull-York. Do you think these choices are a good or bad idea? And if any uni's look at each sub test on the ukcat separately? Thanks!

    Hey I just sent my UCAS form off and for some reason I was under the impression that there would be somewhere where I would be able to declare that I've previously applied through UCAS but there wasn't. Did I just make that up? Am I supposed to notify UCAS in any way? Sorry if this has been asked before
    Does anyone know?

    im in pretty much exactly the same situation as you, applying to the same uni's and resitting chem, i got 685 but i still think its too low for exeter, so im thinking about resitting biology to get predicted an a* so i can apply to UEA so ill have a realistic chance of an interview

    Hi, I know there might have already been discussion about it, but I'm really worried because my personal statement is really similar to my one last year. Will I get penalised for not having changed it much?

    Yo guyz, when I went to Exeter I was really out off by the fact the medical school was kinda out of the way of the rest of the campus. Oh and you're stuck out there with the sports science jocks. Anyone else get this feeling?

    I've never been to Exeter, I'm just in love with the idea of it lol.

    Has everyone been to the universities they're applying to?
