    Maybe look at other alternatives? I have heard at Queen Marys/Bristol once you have completed your first year in Biomed there is a chance to enter Medicine if you do very well in first year.

    Correct me if I am wrong (I still need to confirm this myself).

    Hi everyone!
    Do you think they will consider me for the EMDP course if I'm predicted A*A*AA?
    I wanted to apply for the 5-year programme but I got 660 and Band 2 in the UKCAT. So I was wondering if there is a point on applying to the standard course as King's it's a UKCAT heavy Uni. What should I do?
    Thanks in advance.

    I'll be honest with you my friend applied there with such stats the year I applied and got rejected from there.He had the same predicted grades but a higher ukcat, honestly I would apply for the standard course, last year there cut off was 630.

    Thank you so much! Do you know why was your friend rejected ?
    I want to apply for the standard course, but I'm worried about the UKCAT score and also my GCSEs are not that amazing.

    Because he was predicted really high grades and thought he would be better off on the five year course with his stats.

    Ohh I see.. it's just I'm worried for the UKCAT as I think most people will have a 700+ score

    Well that's not true, I've been through this process myself trust me and it's ideal to have that like it is ideal to be predicted 3 a* but not everyone has that. You also need to bare in mind that kings look at personal statement aswell your GCSEs.

    Hey guys,

    I wanted to apply to the EMDP because I fit all the criteria. My predicted grades are A*AA in biology chemistry and maths respectively and I was wondering if this would be a problem? I'm going to call them today just to make sure but my ukcat is 687 and band 3 so I didn't want to apply to the 5 year course as my band might be a problem and my GCSEs are reallyyyy low: 6A's 4B's.

    I've moved this thread into the Medical Schools area, hopefully someone here will be able to advise.

    My stats where very similar to that last year and I got an interview, so I would go for it. Honestly, I should have applied five year with those stats but I wanted something as a back up.
