    Hello,

    Cardiff only consider the UKCAT if there is a tie-break situation (we spoke to their admissions office a few months ago). You may want to double check that though by phoning them up as well!

    Whilst they said they don't look that much at the UKCAT, they do focus heavily on GCSEs, so you need to have a strong academic record. Again, when you phone them up you can ask them about this.

    Hope the above helps you a bit

    Hmmm, not really - if you didn't do well in the UKCAT, your best bet is to really try and master the BMAT!

    Have you started revision?

    If you've got OK GCSE grades, with As/A*s in all the right subjects, then def apply to some of the good BMAT unis.

    Good luck with your decision - our fingers are crossed for you!
