    Warwick, SGUL, Swansea, and Notts. How about yourself?

    Great UKCAT score btw!
    Thanks! I'm applying to Warwick as well, plus Newcastle (grad and undergrad even though I can't afford it lol) and King's. Praying so hard for Warwick though.

    You should have a great chance at Warwick with that UKCAT score!

    I'm a bit confused about something, when I rang Warwick they said they score points on UKCAT deciles.. so Im guessing that doesn't matter where in a particular decile you are... I thought they just score all highest applying applicants.

    Guys I'm going insane.

    I cant decide on which uni's to choose. Can someone please advise based on my stats, before I tear out whats left of my hair...
    • Biomedical science - 1st class Hons
    • MSc Oncology - in progress, predicted distinction
    • UKCAT - 615
    My poor UKCAT has let me down unfortunately and now Im unsure what to do.

    So far I have decided to apply for 1 undergrad thats relatively close to home (for financial reasons) and I have chosen one grad entry. Unfortunately I cannot apply to the likes of Birmingham or Cambridge that don't require entrance exams.
    • Leicester (undergrad)
    • St Barts/Queen Mary (grad)
    • ? (grad)
    • ? (grad)

    Grad, I really don't want to pay undergrad fees so Newcastle's the only undergraduate course I'm going for.

    If you don't mind, do you know what percentage of questions you feel like you got right in S1 and S3 to get 58 overall in the GAMSAT(which is a very good score)? I know it was a long time ago so I'll understand if you don't know.
    Its impossible to tell without seeing my marks, which ACER do not release. Its a test of reasoning really and they made it more about that this time around (IMO), I felt they were testing our ability to problem solve with given information more than recall/application of existing knowledge. Who knows, don't worry, focus on being a strong applicant (they will smell the fear on you at interview otherwise).

    Hey do you know how our Gamsat scores work?

    So I sat gamsat in March and only got 58 :/
    I sat it again in September but I don't know if I've done any better.
    But ACER are saying I have to let them know if I want to use the march result :/
    But I don't know because I could have done better in September.

    Do you have any idea whether universities will automatically look at the better score??

    58 is what I got last year and that allowed me 2 interviews (SGUL, Notts - I was sick for both of them so no admission for me! :/).
    My understanding is that you have to notify UCAS that you have scores that fall within the currency of results (2 years, uni's then use your most favourable mark). UCAS will contact you if they need anything else and if, for whatever reason, the unis don't get both your scores they will help you out with whatever you need.

    58 got SGUL and Notts interviews? Being unwell for them must have been so hard! SGUL said 62 on their website right? Though they do the two different averages and take you're highest by my understanding?

    Okay that's great thankyou I'll make sure UCAS know about my March result.

    So Nottingham had a cut off of 60 last year does that mean everyone who got that was invited for interview?

    I'm so unsure about whether to apply to Notts and SGUL because my score is so borderline :/

    This stupid change in Personal ID nearly throws me every year! I can't see why UCAS provide you with 2 different numbers, one during application, and one once it has been submitted. So irritating.

    I assume, that the ID number you use for both UKCAT and previous GAMSAT results is the number you receive AFTER you've submitted your application? The new ID number you receive in your first Track email.

    Hello

    I'm a midwife with 2 years experience, a strong personal statement with lots of clinical experience. Graduated King's College with a 1:1(Hons). UKCAT average 615 with Band 1 in situational judgment.

    I am having a last minute panic about my uni choices - faced with the reality that my UKCAT score is not going to cut it!

    I was going to apply for : 1. Warwick 2. Barts 3. Southampton 4. Newcastle

    Does anyone have any advice? I am considering now applying for the 5 year course also, do you know if any of the uni's would favor someone with my level of experience and overlook a mediocre UKCAT score?


    Thank you

    Unfortunately UKCAT is usually the first thing universities will look at for the 4 year course. They will take the top few and interview them before even looking at PS. If financially viable I'd advise applying to the 5 year courses

    Hey guys
    I was just wondering if GEM courses are still getting funded the same way for 2017 entry as I have looked online and none of them mention only having to pay so much and they're all saying tuition fees are 9250 so do we have to pay the full amount?
