    Hi! Thank you so much for reading this post and providing your insight!

    I am an international student applying for medicine in the UK. These are the scores I have so far:
    1. AP Chemistry- 5
      AP Calculus- 5
      AP Capstone Seminar- 4

      ACT- 35/36

      SAT Chemistry- 770
      SAT MAths 2- 780

      I am also extremely involved in MUN, dance and service. I took the UKCAT but I was honestly not happy with my score since I thought I would do better (I got an average of 700). I don't think doing the BMAT is an option since it is a bit too late to study for that.

      Please do advise on what colleges I should apply for, and ones I have a decent chance of getting into. So far, I am considering Kings, Birmingham, Sheffield, and Southampton.

      Thank you so much for all your help!

    What would you recommend is the best way to study? Are there any websites or books I could use that may be of help? Also, don't you need to be 100% sure you are going to do well in the BMAT when applying to those schools?

    There are a few different resources out there. Its been so long since I did it I do not feel able to advise though - have a look at some of the existing threads on TSR

    The main aim for you given you are not familiar with the British curriculum is to become familiar with the science GCSE syllabi. If you have science qualifications this should not be too great a task.

    Also, don't you need to be 100% sure you are going to do well in the BMAT when applying to those schools?
    I'm not sure that's possible.

    You should apply to the schools you feel you stand the best chance to get into.
