    Thread for prospective applicants. (UG and PG)

    Please refrain from posting information about interviews- it disadvantages people who have already had interviews, is against the law and ruins the purpose of MMIs.

    Has anybody else been invited to the offer-holders day on Wednesday 1st Februrary

    Hey,

    I'm a prospective applicant like yourself. Although I am applying as a graduate down the GEM route.

    Just curious though, I seem to find conflicting information online about which entrance exam St George's uses? Some sites list is a GAMSAT and others say UKCAT.

    Do you or anyone else reading this know? I have emailed them but just waiting for a reply at the moment.

    I'm a graduate looking to apply for the 5 year course here as a backup choice because I heard their UKCAT cut-off score is lower than most UKCAT universities. Stats:

    2:1 Biomedical Science
    A Level: ABC
    GCSE: 5As 5Bs
    Plenty of healthcare experience
    UKCAT Total: 2060 Average: 690 Band 1

    Does anyone know about the scoring process for St. George's??

    So is anyone who meets the minimum requirements automatically invited for interview??
    Or do they score you against other applicants and then choose those with the highest scores and invite them for interview??

    I don't believe SGUL accept graduates on the 5 year course - it was certainly the case when I applied, and looking at the website (MBBS5, Entry Criteria under Exceptions) it seems to still be the case.

    Oh wow I didn't even know. I'll have to check on the website too or email them. Wouldn't want to waste an application. Thanks for that information

    I really want to find this out too, it seems slightly too good to be true! I've been trying to get in contact with them...

    Hey guysss, best of luck with applications! I'm now in my fourth year, so if you guys have any questions about SGUL lemme know. Although you're probably better off asking younger years for application-specific help as it's been so long since I applied, it's all changed

    Hi, will stats of 8A* and 2A at GCSE, AAAA at As, AAA (achieved) at GCSE, 670 UKCAT and band 1 SJT be ok? Just that some of my other choices are risky so I want to be safer with this option.
    Thank you. Also, do they look at individual UKCAT sections? My VR is pretty shoddy (570).

    I have a GCSE score of 458/464, and a ukcat score of 2030/ 677 average.

    Is my ukcat score cutting it close? Is it worth applying, and after you meet the minimum cutoff score do they only use GCSEs to determine which candidates to interview?

    Thanks

    Hi Tania, as a 4th year you probably had some peers that were in the international program. Did all of them have to leave to complete years 3 & 4 in America? Or did any of them stay and finish up in London?

    Also, would love to talk with you about the curriculum but perhaps not on this thread.

    Are SGUL lenient when people miss offers?
