Hey guys, currently applying to the Sutton Trust for medicine.

Which university is probably the most likely to accept my application? The universities offered are as follows:

Bristol
Cambridge
Durham
Edinburgh
Imperial College
King's College London
Nottingham
Royal Veterinary College
St Andrews
UCL

I only have 5 A*s, 5 As (relatively low for Medicine) and a B (in Further Maths iGCSE) currently, however I'm resitting Further Maths this year (hopefully for an A*/A^), which I've pointed out in my application.

Since my current GCSEs are really the only thing they can go off of, which do you think is the most realistic to apply to?

Thanks a lot!

I attended the sutton trust in St. Andrews they had an excellent program, the town was really nice and I decided that its where I wanted to go to study. I am a bit biased but I had a great time if you have any more questions let me know!

Thanks for your reply! I was thinking about St Andrews, but I was worried that the competitiveness of the summer school courses may vary between the Sutton Trust unis? Would you say you applied to St Andrews because you believed you'd most likely get onto their summer school course, or was there another reason?

I'm thinking of applying to Imperial's summer school, due to them being one of the least competitive (in regards to their actual medicine course, due to their high number of places available.) However, I'm not sure if that's actually reflected in the summer school competitiveness.
