    So this is my situation..

    I have 7A*s and 3As at GCSE
    Predicted A*AAA for A2 but got a B in Maths AS and I am dropping it
    UKCAT avg score of 633 with SJT band 2
    I've got a pretty solid personal statement I think so not too worried about it ( qualities with my examples etc)

    My current choices are Bristol, Leeds and Cardiff and I really really want to put down Edinburgh but I'm afraid that I'm not good enough

    Any advice on my med schools choices?!

    Hi, your grades are amazing but for edinburgh and cardiff they are quite GCSE heavy and i think edinburgh uses the UKCAT a lot in the selection process. Maybe just review the websites and see if you meet/exceed the criteria. Is there anything about Edinburgh you really like because you could always research universities with similar attributes if you're really unsure?

    Cardiff would be slightly risky, apparently they need 8A*s at GCSE. If your PS is good then Bristol seems logical, as they place 70% on the personal statement pre-interview.
