    why is student satisfaction at kings so low?? is the new curriculum addressing these issues because if it's not then I probs will reject kings. Any current kings medics (part of 2020 curriculum) agree/understand this low satisfaction rate?
    I am keen to find out too. Any comments from students there would be greatly appreciated

    Not for all universities, but King's is quite GCSE heavy so you'd probably stand no chance there unfortunately.

    Would I have a fair chance at other unis? Should I worth the risk?

    Yeah. You need to look at unis that aren't heavy on GCSEs like Newcastle (UKCAT heavy), Imperial and BSMS (BMAT heavy), Bristol (ps heavy), Exeter (a2 heavy) and Aberdeen, Dundee and UCL (holistic). I wouldn't bother applying to King's unless you get a brilliant UKCAT though. Good luck!

    I got an offer and I have 2 A* 8 As GCSE so don't listen to anyone saying you need loads of A*s, but you would need As minimum

    A little bit yes but if you ace your UKCAT and AS levels and have good A2 predictions they might overshadow the GCSE b's

    The As and UKCAT are very important but the A2 prediction you have only to have A in chem and bio and A in another A2 plus a C in any other AS. The interview is the most crucial part in the process. Sometimes if you are international and take the AS with the A2 at the same time then the predictions will be on the whole A level.

    so say if i get 2 A's and 2 B's in AS's this year but next year i get predicted 2 A's and an A* and a good UKCAT score I'm likely to get an interview as AS's no longer count towards A levels?
    thanks
