Medicine - Which university with my average UKCAT and AS Levels? Watch

Report Thread starter 2 years ago
I'm applying for Medicine for 2017 entry. I'm not sure which universitites to apply for based on my AS and UKCAT results.

GCSE's - 8 A*'s (Maths, Welsh (2nd Language), Triple Science, Computer Science, Geography, French) and 3 A's (English Literature, English Language and Business Studies).

AS Level's - A in Biol, A in Geog, B in Chem and B in Maths. I'm also doing the Welsh Baccalaureate but that's an A - Level. I was orginally planning to drop Geography and then continue with the other 4 - Welsh Bacc is compulsory in my school, some universities accept it as a part of their offer some don't, nevertheless I'm not allowed to drop it. I've been told that maybe I rethink dropping geography. I plan to resit one Maths exam which if I get an A in will bump the whole grade up to an A, I am also resitting at least one of my Chem exams, again to bump it up to an A - I will resit these May/June next year. Are these good enough for Medicine?

UKCAT - sat the day before results day, only started revision a week before so results aren't great:-
VR - 600
QR - 650
AR - 730
SJ - Band 1

May sit the BMAT for UCL/Imperial.
Work Experience - 2 days at GP Surgery, 1 week at larger GP surgery (with house calls, minor surgery, clinics etc), 2 days at hospital (allowed into theatre), volunteering at elderly care home weekly for 1.5 years, volunteering at Girl Guiding Rainbows/Brownies, going back for my 3rd year in Sept and then volunteer weekly in local hospital for 1.5yrs.
What universities don't put much weight on the UKCAT/AS? Which uni's shall I avoid?

I'm looking at to Cardiff, Edinburgh, possibly Manchester, Exeter, UCL, Imperial. Any others that I've just overlooked?

Thank you

imperial is probably one of the top unis to go to for medicine.. also Uni of Birmingham is really good too, another one for medicine is University of Edinburgh although that's really far away.
You have an excellent set of results and if you keep it up im sure whichever uni you'll go to will be glad to have you!
