    Hey all, just thought I would start an early thread for Aberdeen. Seems like a smashing university for medicine and a friendly city to live/work in. There does seem to be a change in their selection criteria which I can only go on by their website: http://www.abdn.ac.uk/smd/medicine/a...on-process.php Please post any queries or questions. Really looking forward to applying here

    Good stuff, well if I don't get this HCA job I'm probably going to do the same and save up for some travelling later on

    No, they didn't mention anything about sub section cut-offs etc. just the UKCAT average. Definitely worth applying with those stats, seems a solid application mate!

    Any opinions on A*AA and 690 UKCAT? All GCSE equivalents (like 9 subjects) A*. Also I'm considered as a Scottish (EU) student.

    Would this be worth the apply? I really like Aberdeen, sooo much.

    I can't tell you my stats just yet. I'm an IB Diploma student and they're giving us our predicted grades sth around September / October, so I won't know till then.
    But from what I can predict, I would say 37 overall with 6,7,7 HLs Chem, Bio, English.

    And my UKCAT is coming in four days, so I will tell you then
