    Oh no I wanted to apply to Birmingham but don't have an A in GCSE English. Its hard to believe a qualification I got when I was 16 is restricting me now as a graduate from applying. Just great.
    If English and Maths have only been studied as far as GCSE they have to be at least A grade. Sorry to hear that you are unable to apply to Birmingham.
    Good luck with your application.

    OK so am going for:

    Cambridge
    Birmingham
    Imperial
    Leeds or BSMS

    I need to set BMAT, but I have no idea about it am going to obviously study for it, but can someone give a rough overview of it? compared to UKCAT/GAMSAT...what is it testing? and how long roughly do you need to study for it if you have been away from uni for 4 years (working)

    Also should i go for leeds or BSMS, my PS is quiet strong so I want to play it to my advantage...

    *Thanks *
    I think Cambridge may be a problem, as, irrespective of one's degree, they require A level Chemistry at grade A 'normally within 7 years of entry'. I presume that if you did an MPharm and have worked for the last 4 years, it is 8 years since you did A levels (or equivalent)?

    The pharmacy degree has enough chemistry to make up for it (as i was told when i applied last year) also I did scottish higher chemistry and have an A. So chem is not a problem for me tbh...unless they changed requirements?*

    OK, fair enough, if you have previously checked. I thought that your previous application was for 2015 entry though (?), so your Scottish Higher in Chemistry would have been within the 7 year time frame requirement. It may be worth checking again for this application cycle. (I'm not a stalker.....I just have a good memory!)

    Yh. They shortlist people from ukcat and then they cut more students after interviews. So only 25 actually get a place

    Guys can I ask on the ucas page where it has 'Degree', I haven't received a degree yet so would I put pending. And additionally for the module section, should I only list modules which actually count towards the degree, correct?

    I must be missing something because I'm my education tab on UCAS, no universities are showing up in the search box for college/centres. I tried obvious ones like University of Manchester but got nothing.

    Do universities have to be entered manually, and without centre numbers? Centre numbers are college things and aren't used at uni. UCAS is ****.

    Edit: I've now just entered it manually as a degree but it just doesn't seem correct that UCAS wouldn't have any universities saved on their system in the drop down list. It's also asking for the 'awarding organisation' of the degree, but who is that for bachelors? I did biomedical science, so the IBMS? It only provides space for 5-6 characters so it's clearly looking for something like AQA or Edexcel like in college.... Annoying.

    I searched for this too because the awarding organisation is your university, but ofc this isn't going to fit in that space. Other people have said they just put an abbreviation, and UCAS has said this is fine apparently. So like for me I have University of Glasgow as GLA. Looks daft but I'm sure it'll be fine.
