    Hi wonder if anyone can advise please. My daughter sat her UKcat test yesterday in Scotland and her results are as follows -

    VR - 500
    QR - 670
    AR 610
    SJ - Band 2

    She has her results which are 4 A'S in English, Maths, Chemistry & Geography, 1B in Biology. National 5 exams - 5 A'S and 1C - English, Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Modern Studies and C for Geography. She is taking 3 advanced highers this year - Chemistry, Biology and Maths.

    Will the UKcat score mean she will struggle for a place this year with this score?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    She would like to apply to 4 Scottish universities, not Glasgow, as they would like 5A's!!

    Many thanks

    I have replied to you on another thread but just noticed you're not considering applying to Gladgow because of higher at B. Your daughter is part of REACH so that B becomes an A. Last year I know someone who only applied to Glasgow for medicine with a UKCAT of less than 600 and got an interview because of REACH. Had no real interest in medicine so failed at interview.
