    do they look at AS levels or just A level predictions?
    I am not completely sure but you can find the information on their website.

    Hey I'm applying for both graduate and undergraduate entry. Any chance you'd share your UKCAT score - just so I can get a gauge of where I stand (if not that's totally cool!).

    Just wrote my UKCAT today and got:
    VR: 740
    QR: 790
    AR: 730
    SJT: Band 1

    I'm an international student as well so don't have GCSEs but grades are good besides. I'm just pretty nervous bc the quota for my cohort is significantly lower so I figure I need to score over their typical minimum to get an interview 🙃

    Hi,

    Which other universities did you decide to apply to if you don't mind me asking? And which ones did you get an offer from?

    I am an international student myself, so was just wondering

    Hey, I'm probably applying to King's this fall I'm not british so haven't done any GCSEs but my UKCAT is 753 and my achieved A level equivalents exceed the requierements easily.

    I was wondering if there are any King's students reading this - from some promotional youtube video I got the idea that King's is maybe more focused on mental health than other unis (which would be fabulous imo). Is this true?
    Heyyy, did you hear back from King's? And what other unis did u apply to if you don't mind me asking and which ones did you get an offer from?
    I am an international student as well, so was just wondering...

    Your UKCAT score is amazing, I have mine in 3 weeks, hope I get 700+

    Yeah, in fact I'll start studying there in September! I also got an offer from Exeter. Oxford rejected me post-interview and Edinburgh rejected me because of this ridiculous grade scoring thing.

    Good luck with your UKCAT! Make sure you prep for the SJT - it comes as a surprise for a lot of people how important it is at many unis, including King's.

    That's really great!!!! Yeah, I am considering applying to Exeter as well!
    I know it's been long but if you don't mind me asking could you tell me how you prepared for the ukcat (what resources you used) and what did you use to study SJT coz in my practice I consistently get Band 2

    Thanks!

    Exeter is fantastic!

    I used the ISC 1000Q book (v useful although harder than the real thing), the Medic Portal question bank (super annoying layout and too easy questions. Knowing what I know now I'd buy Medify instead) and the stuff on the official UKCAT website.

    Tbh I don't have many tips on SJT prep as I always got way higher scores than the cut-offs for Band 1 in my mocks so I didn't really bother preparing. Maybe try to understand the principles most of the stuff depends on and go from there - the patient is your priority and you should be open and honest and act with integrity etc etc.

    Band 2 is good. Band 3 would mean trouble, but band 2 is more than good enough at the vast majority of unis.

    Hello guys,

    I have an unconditional on the 5 year course for Medicine at Kings - Does anyone know how to enrol or when enrolment begins? I've used the portal messaging system but not had a reply and I've tried the admissions office today on the phone several times with no answer.

    Thanks in advance,

    Ralph

    You'd get an interview at MOST if not ALL medical schools with that.

    I know how fortunate I am but I want to avoid relying on my PS as much as possible because that will be subjective, hence the query
    Good luck to you

    Admission tutors recommend that you apply for the 5-year programme if you meet the entry requirements. So if you have 3A*s predicted and a good UKCAT I'd suggest to apply for the normal course, not the EMDP because there are people who apply to that programme because of their lower predicted grades.
    I initially wanted to apply for the EMDP because my UKCAT wasn't great (I got 660 average), but I took the risk and applied to the 5-year programme and I ended up with an offer. King's looks at everything holistically so you don't necessarily need a 700+ UKCAT.

    Thankyou but thats not fair ecause i do meet the criteria and havebeen at a state school all my lifeand feel i need to support btu can they actually reject you because of this? what if you havent applied fo rht e other course and they reject you from the emdp course? i think im predicted high but i dont think im going to get the A*AA kings want hence why i want to apply the EMPD so it can be my insurance or my firm. also i know my ukcat is oging to be bad- Whats the lowest UKCAT score youve heard going into the normal course and the emdp course?

    hi i just practiced questions and tests on medify and kaplan. i did around 3-4hours a day split into half an hour and 1 hour slots along with a mock every two days closer to the exam. in the actual test i found that timing really stumped me on the VR section as that was the first, so that was my worst section at 590. however i was doing worst at QR at home but that was my highest section at 890. for QR i would suggest just flagging questions that look like they require complex calculations and just guess an answer. medify was very similar in question style and the kaplan mock tests were very similar too. good luck!
