    Hey have you thought about Swansea grad med course? they accept GAMSAT and their cut off for the past few years has been around 58

    Hey thanks for replying

    Yeah i would consider Swansea but i think it might be a bit too risky because i'm scared they will increase their cut off this year :/

    i think it was 59-60 this year?

    Hi, does anyone know if graduate applicants get unconditional or conditional offers? If conditional, would that just be degree's final grade (1st, 2:1 etc)?

    Yeah I had a look on the 2016 thread and a couple people were rejected with 58/59 so I don't think I will risk it.

    But Thankyou for the suggestion though

    Where are you applying if you don't mind me asking?

    Hi, just wanted some advice!*

    I have just graduated with a first class honours in Biomedical science and have good work experience (Bangladesh health clinic 6 weeks as a patient care advisor, phlebotomist *and as a volunteer in a hospital ward).

    However, I have a low UKCAT of 620 average (VR:570, QR:650 AR:640 and Band 2). Also my a level grades are poor biology E, geography D and English language C. I had to do a foundation year before getting into uni...*

    Do I have a chance of getting on to the A100 courses with my stats? I'm thinking of applying to Warwick, Queen Mary and Aberdeen?*

    Thanks in advance! *

    Hey your work experience sounds amazing

    I wouldn't apply to Warwick because i think they are known for being quite UKCAT heavy. I think you would need a much higher UKCAT score to stand a chance :/


    I think you could look into Keele University as i think they only use UKCAT scores in borderline cases?

    Cardiff (5 year) don't have a minimum cut off - this the quote from document on the UKCAT website
    ' We do not have a minimum threshold score for the UKCAT, however the UKCAT score may be used as
    part of the assessment procedure.'
    http://www.ukcat.ac.uk/App_Media/upl...T%20Result.pdf its quite a useful document

    Hey! Thank you for replying.

    Yeah I think I might forget about Warwick as even to be invited for the selection centre you need to have above average verbal reasoning score which I do not have *

    Ok, I'll look into keele I thought you had to do the GAMSAT of you didn't meet their a-level requirements?*

    Thanks again *

    Good luck

    Thanks for the reply! Ooh it is very useful!

    *I'll check out Cardiff now! I'm from Bristol so it's not too far for me and that would be great!

    Even though I have a degree now and experience my a-levels just haunt me, & limit places I can apply! *Thanks again! *

    *Ok I'll look into that, I don't mind doing extra years as long as I can just get in! I doubt I'll get in this year but will apply for medicine next year and think I may attempt the GAMSAT! But it just scares me :/

    Thank you! Good luck to you as well! Keep us updated on here *

    JenJenXD I think Keele have additional A level requirements so be weary of that. Best to check out their requirements on their webpage because although they may have low UKCAT threshold they MAY have other requirements - so do keep that in mind.

    On another note how on Earth are people staying within the PS limit I'm still 300 characters over

    omg I still haven't received my reference....................... .........
    (Original post by Lostperson)
    me too

    (Original post by NafNaf39)
    Me three.

    omg still?

    Are you all getting academic references?

    The only advice I can give (which I had to resort to) was to email pretty much every lecturer I had at university who was still there.

    Have you emailed other tutors/lecturers just in case?

    When did you send the last email?

    I sent reminder emails like everyday to two lecturers who ended up responding last week and I had to tell them that the reference is already done so thanks and stuff.

    Do you live near the campus?

    Yikes. It's been months hasn't it? She really should have done it by now. Could you ask someone else?

    How far away are you?

    I live like a 7 minute train journey away from my former university. COuld you make the journey there?

    My referee (the one who replied damn fast) ended up writing it within 4/5 hours of emailling him my CV and personal statement. And he barely knew me.

    PS is going ok btw. It's only 1200 words now. Been staring at it all day haha

    Just a little bit of help please!
    Seeing as how the UKCAT scores were lower than last year I think i'll just seek advice 1 last time before I submit my application. I've got a 2:1 in BMedSci, I meet all the necessary A-level and GCSE requirements and i've got plenty of care experience (Currently training as a HCA, medical brigade abroad and care home volunteering). My UKCAT average was 743.3 and SJ Band 1. My choices currently are Southampton, Kings, Warwick and Newcastle. Are there any other places I should consider or look at over those? Any which might be worth looking at?
