    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?!

    I think you'll be fine - you could even have a shot at Cambridge if you wanted to?
    Just keep your personal statement strong and you're good - include extracurriculars related to Medicine to increase your chances in the competitive environment.

    I feel I'm in the same place as you. My UKCAT score is also not as strong as a lot of other people's, but I'm predicted A*A*(/A)A and I got 7A*s and 3As at GCSE. I'm dropping Maths too.
    I just have no idea where to apply to, to maximise my chances.

    You should certainly avoid ukcat heavy schools like KCL or Barts. Your ukcat score will also probably be too low for Edinburgh since it's weighed quite heavily there. Apart from that everything seems fine good luck
