    Really? I'm pretty worried about failing at interview, I know I can get interviews for the 4 year course. I don't have a 1st so my personal tutor advised me not to apply for 4 year courses and my overall application is pretty weak to be honest. I've done work experience 4 years ago and nothing since then.
    Not having a first is not an issue unless you want to apply to barts or Birmingham or maybe Oxbridge. Southampton literally want a 2.1 and a minimum of a c at a level Chem. After that they literally don't care abut your academics. As for work experience, why not put down what you already have, and then get some more?? Southampton only look at your personal statement during the interview, so as long as you have something to say for yourself then you'll be fine.

    I called them up and I've decided to apply, but I'm still worried I won't stand out compared to the other applicants... Like I have no clue what you're supposed to say/do at a GEM interview... I'll be able to get care home work experience but it's looking unlikely for me to get proper work experience (I do have proper work experience from years ago).
    yes its a good choice to make to apply to them based on your ukcat score.

    If i were you, i would get some work exp now..in time for interview to talk about.

    Look on the NHS website. if you are in london UCLH is looking for many xx

    I called QMUL, they said they will compare your degree classifications with students who have 1st classes and Masters', so your competitiveness depends on the academic achievements of the cohort (most likely loads of 1st classes...).
    i have a 2:1 and an MSc but not going to bother applying.
    too risky for me.

    QM initially use UKCAT cut off mark and then rank the remaining applicants academic profiles with the UKCAT scores if that helps.

    Anyone know if it is worth applying to QM if I don't meet the GCSE criteria for A100 (5yr course)?

    last year someone with a 2:1 and a MSc distinction plus a 800 ukcat score was rejected. where as someone with a 1st and a 670 score was interviewed.

    Where did you get that info from if you don't mind me asking? The entire 50:50 process was confusing me so I called admin and asked three individuals and all of them said they use UKCAT initially then the academic profile with the UKCAT. Really confusing if the info you have is from them :/

    did the person with the first have a masters as well? because I am predicted a first and got 670 myself. So far I was downbeat about Barts as an option because my score is just too low.

    can you also link me to that page pls. Thanks in advance.

    On UCAS, when entering degree results it has a part for the degree classification and it says adding individual module marks is optional.

    Do you think it makes a difference if these are added or not??

    Usually only if you score like 90%+

    Ok thanks! I guess they will request transcripts anyway as evidence of your degree so they will see on there

    I painstakingly added all 33 modules, but looking back i don't think it was worth it. I haven't for my A levels.

    FINAL UKCAT MEAN SCORES FOR 2016
    VR- 573
    QR- 690
    AR- 630
    Mean total- 1893

    Mean for 2015 was 1902 (-DA), so overall the scores have fallen slightly from 2015.

    9th decile has fallen from 2160 to 2150. So if you know the university thresholds for last year then you can assume they'll be roughly the same this year.

    Hi guys,

    It was asked earlier but i don't think anyone offered any suggestions. I'm applying for both graduate entry and standard entry medicine (3:1 or 2:2 ratio). Is there any standard entry universities which only take into account a candidates degree classification (1st) and UKCAT (750), ignoring GCSE and A Level when applying as a graduate?

    I'm doing so hoping it may increase my chances of getting a place seeing as GEM is so competitive!

    Thanks, Gavin

    The best thing to do is to phone up the universities admissions team and go from there. They won't have specific info like that on their sites
