    Hey kid,

    Take this to private messaging. Completely veering off the thread's topic.

    You can also find a lot of those answers on the respective school sites. Try researching a little and not be spoon fed - you'll need that skill at university.

    Hey,

    Sure, we should stick to the thread topic but you'll also need the skill of patience and understanding for others, not being sharp tongued. Chill ☺️.

    Good luck to all 🤗👍.

    Next year im thinking of applying to Queen Mary , UCL, Edinburgh , Aberdeen or Imperial. Do you think that I should not apply to any of these uni because of my gcse grades
    Edinburgh will definitely be difficult with anything less than 8A*s at GCSE.

    Imperial: You have to kill your BMAT to get an interview call
    Edinburgh: They look at GCSEs
    Aberdeen: No clue
    UCL: Pretty holistic, but your GCSEs will defo set you back. The other areas of your application need to be really really strong, because hundreds of other applicants would be applying with great A level/IB predicts and better GCSEs than you (GCSEs are the only official indicator of past performance that these unis will have, and past performance usually indicates future performance).

    Just keep in mind that medicine is extremely competitive, and only about 20% of applicants will get seats. If you're an international applicant, you're looking at a <5% acceptance rate, depending on where you apply to.

    This thread is for applicants for 2017 entry. The info you're asking can easily be found on their website or your own research. Don't mean to be blunt

    Does anyone know whether King's prioritises GCSEs or A level predictions?
    I'm a 2017 applicant btw but I couldn't find this information anywhere online. Now I'm worried because even though I have 9A*1A at GCSE I only have 3 A predictions and no AS (school policy)

    I'm pretty sure they dc about a2 predictions except for their basic requirements however you're not even halfway through year 12 so you have plenty of time to convince your teachers you can do better than that so its fine

    A-Levels, of course. Doesn't matter if you have 15A*'s, you're not getting in unless you have 3As at A-Level at least. Alternatively, you could get in with good GCSE's (mix of A*s and As) with AAA+.

    That isn't exactly what he's asking I don't think. To get an interview offer it's the GCSE that they prioritise over A Level predicted grades

    They did start giving out interviews for international students, don't know about EU, but a friend of mine got an interview and she's international (if you go back a few pages you'll see a couple other internationals have gotten interviews) I'm still waiting for a response.
    i thought the international students that did get interviews were graduates?? correct me if i am wrong
