    I am on a second gap year A*A*A* in Bio Chem and Maths, A at AS Further Maths (on my gap year I done A2 further maths and got an A*, i know this does not count).
    723 7A*s and 4 A's GCSE

    Last year I got rejected with 685 Band 3 from Kings(interview) Queen Mary(interview) SGUL(interview) Notts(no interview)

    Is it worth while to reapply to kings. i'm planning to apply to Leicester and Manchester. Not sure about the 4th, Glasgow, keele, uea, exeter?

    Did you get 3A*s at first attempt? and are they the only thing that contributed to your ucas tariff. I'd say apply to queens mary if you still can because four A* tariff is quite good.

    I got 3A*s first attempt, and A at AS, withing two years. Then on my gap year (3rd Year) I done an A2, got an A*. All unis say further maths as an a-level does not count, only at as-level. my fourth a-level doesn't really count i did it separately on my own during my gap year.

    Performance at interview is what gets you the offer I think. A level grades/UKCAT mainly used to shortlist applicants for interview
