    Hi, i am applying next year at universities such as Manchester, kings college and imperial to study medicine, assuming i get AAA-A*AA predicted grades, how much other things should i have on my application in terms of work experience, hours of volunteering and extra curricular activities that would increase my chance of securing an interview. What did you have on your application to get your interviews secured at Russell group universities aside from good predicted grades?

    It doesn't matter if the Medical School is Russel Group or not, the same principle applies for any Medical School because of how competitive they are - to increase your chance of getting an interview, apply wisely. For example, if you have a low UKCAT, it'd be far better to apply to Med Schools that don't look at the UKCAT in as much depth compared to other Med Schools.
