    Thank you. The KAPLAN course is pricey, but my score last year was a very low average, I did not actually apply, I just sat the UKCAT course so when it comes to this year when I want to apply it is not al new to me. I just want to help boost my score somehow. If the money is worth it, then I don't mind, hence its good to hear from someone who actually took the course.

    Thanks :-)
    The online course is cheaper and worth it in my opinion

    You learn the same things online as you would if you attended the in-classroom course. For me personally, I just learn better physically being in front of a teacher rather than watching seminars online but the online course is definitely a good alternative to save money!

    You're welcome as I said, my friend didn't score as high as she would have liked but her score did still improve from previously so I definitely think it's worth it and the online course is a good cheaper alternative. Also, remember that the UKCAT isn't the be-all and end-all of your application so if it doesn't go to plan you've still got options. You could always try the GAMSAT or BMAT or potentially look at undergrad courses if you can afford them because they require a much lower UKCAT score than graduate courses do. Good luck with your application!

    Thank you so much. I really don't think I could do the GAMSAT or BMAT, I don't have any A-Levels, only an Access course. My options are very limited .

    But I am not one to give up easily, if there is a little hope, I will keep trying .

    To be fair I only did the UKCAT because I was on a placement last summer so I didn't have enough time to revise for the GAMSAT or BMAT so my options were limited too but I ended up with an offer from Warwick as well as an offer from HYMS for undegrad so definitely don't give up, you'll get there in the end!

    Where did your friend get into with 640? big problemo is can't apply UEA due to a levels, and Keele due to A levels would have to do GAMSAT instead of UKCAT


    Potentially looking at a score of 39 which isn't very strong. I'm considering Notts actually. Do those all not look at A levels?
    Have you applied this year?

    Hey,

    May sound like a stupid question, but do graduates get to firm/insure offers, or are they only allowed to accept one (like gap year students, for example)?

    We get to firm one and insure one through UCAS

    Heyyy. Does anyone know if grad medicine schools look at individual modules? I have been getting high 2.1’s / high 1sts in my exams but recently got a high 2.2 so I’m panicking

    There’s no real ways to group grad medicine schools bud but if it makes you feel better I applied to two and neither Nottingham or Liverpool have asked me for my transcript so I don’t think they even look let alone care

    Thanks for your response! I’m just worried because I’m only applying to UKCAT universities. Really hope they don’t take modules into account, it’s one time I messed up
