    Back in my day we applied to BL because it's an amazing establishment that has done well over the years even though it got lumped with QMUL, not because of strategic number-crunching on UCAS.

    Hi everyone,

    Just a heads up that you can get involved in our 'ask a student' Q&A thread. You can ask me about any aspect of the medicine course and what it's like living in London.

    Do Barts make any offers higher than AAA? I am predicted A*A*A* but I can alternatively get predicted less- would this be an advantage in causing me to receive a lower offer Also do higher predictions mean I dont have to do that well on the UKCAT

    Hi, thank you for replying. I had not realised that they were not using them anymore. I will have another look at the entry requirements.

    Just taken another look at the entry requirements (for 2017) on their website:

    "UCAS tariff is made up of a number of academic and non-academic qualifications. Applicants are encouraged to review the list of ‘tariffable’ qualifications and must ensure that all qualifications they have taken and/or are taking are listed on their UCAS application in order to be taken into consideration. As well as AS and A2 Levels, other examples of academic tariffable qualifications include the Cambridge Pre-U, the International Baccalaureate, the Irish Leaving Certificate, and the non-academic qualifications Extended Project, BTEC level 3, Music Examinations. We will calculate your tariff for all tariffable qualifications you list on your UCAS application including those that are not taken into consideration for meeting our minimum academic requirements e.g. An AS or A Level in General Studies or Critical Thinking."

    Please help, where did you hear that they are not using UCAS points?

    The ukcat is very important at Barts, being predicted highly is unlikely to aid you because the offer is AAA, if you have high GCSEs that may work in your favour but ukcat is a must, good luck!

    As graduate, you are assessed 50/50 based on UKCAT and academics (A level and Degree?). Is there information for how much points are awarded for us graduates?

    As long as you meet the A-levels requirements in Biology and Chemistry your academic score is formulated from only your degree qualifications (including any Master's and PhD qualifications).

    According to their website: "we developed our own system where we assigned Academic Points for different graduate qualifications."

    Annoyingly, they are not fully transparent about how this system works but it may be reasonable to assume that the following hierarchy of qualifications applies:

    1st: PhD / post-doctoral qualifications
    2nd: Masters
    3rd: First Class Bachelors
    4th: 2:1 Bachelors
    Immediate Rejection: 2:2 in your first degree.

    Hey
    I am planning to apply for 2017 entry A100 Medicine at Barts.
    My stats are:
    - GCSEs: 8A*s, 2 Distinction*s and 2 As
    - As level: A in maths (96 ums average); other subjects are under new linear specification
    - A2 predictions: hopefully A*A*A* and A/A* in EPQ
    - UKCAT: 670 average

    Would you say this is enough to get an interview at Barts?

    Thanks in advance

    I think so... but I'm not sure how they're gonna manage it because not everyone is doing As exams due to the new linear specifications

    No, only the dropped AS level has counted in previous years but this year it could be not even that one

    AS Level: 4As (95.5 average)

    University of East Anglia (UEA) and St George's are two of the universities that didn't consider SJT last year. UEA state on their website that they will not be using SJT scores again this year. It may be worth emailing the St George's admissions team.

    As your UKCAT average is very good you may decide that applying to a mixture of UKCAT med schools and BMAT med schools is a good way to cover yourself if you were to not get a good enough BMAT score.

    Other than that, get a good personal statement prepared to complement your good grades and you should have a good shot at getting interviews.

    Good luck,

    Team YesMED
