    Hi, I am a Barts offer holder for this year's admission cycle and AFAIK Barts do not really look at the personal statement when selecting for interview. They are more interested in your UKCAT score and are the only medical school that look at your UCAS tariff (https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu.../tariff-tables).

    They put a 50:50 weighting on UCAS tariff and UKCAT, meaning if you have a low UCAS tariff, you will need a high UKCAT and vice versa. Here are some guidelines on what some good 50:50 weightings are from the Barts website. http://www.smd.qmul.ac.uk/Documents/...2015-cycle.pdf

    Hope this is of some help and feel free to ask me any questions

    Well done, that's a good set of stats! I'd say you're definitely in with a chance, though the only thing you seem to really be lacking is a prolonged period of volunteering in the medical industry. Give it a go, though, and good luck. Bart's is the best!!

    The reason it's so high is because many of Bart's applicants are IB students, do you have any music or dance etc qualifications that could boost your tarif score? Still, I wouldn't discount Bart's as an option for you!

    As I live outside the UK I don't have any qualifications that can be used for UCAS tariff except my A levels

    How did you calculate the UCAS tariff? My A levels predicted are most probably A*AA and my UKCAT is 665 B3. Can you tell me my Tariff score?

    Worry not too much my friend. Just apply and pray hard! You will receive an offer! Check this link. The minimum Tariff they want is 144. It's also a 50:50 weighting.

    All the statistics are for UK eu students (scroll to the bottom completely) and according to the official link above ^ which I posted means that applying to Barts will prolly be a waste of a choice. Nevertheless, thanks for the positive thoughts!

    Yeah, it's your choice in the end anyways! Since, I am aiming for London because of several reasons, I will probably take an extra subject or two and boost my UCAS tariff. I mean you can just give an easy AS subject and take your Tariff from 224 to 240+. Anyways, best of Luck! May I know which country you are applying from?

I have a few questions for offer holders for 2017 entryFirstly, when do barts start inviting applicants for interview?Do they let you know if you have been rejected pre-interview or do you have to wait until the end of the interviewing period to know?Lastly, I got 658 average on my ukcat and 208 tariff points. Does I stand a chance?
