    I'm applying for GEM 2016 and have just finished my final year at a pretty low ranking uni. I studied biomedical sciences and my degree is going to be 2.1/1st borderline. Currently I average 67.6% and a first is 68, so it's going to be close!

    I'm just wondering if unis take into account his good your previous uni was. I know they pretty much all interview by ukcat/gamsat alone but does the previous place of study ever come into it?

    I'm applying to Newcastle, Warwick, Southampton and Swansea.

    Thanks
