    I have great grades at GCSE (I attended an underperforming school and got results they had never seen nor had they ever expected before, so while they're not 12626 A*s, they are still very admirable). I am predicted A*A*A at A level. However, sadly, I just had a really bad day in the exam room for the UKCAT and didn't perform as well as I had hoped.

    For UCKAT I was considering Kings college. I have sent them an email, but I haven't had a reply, but I'm going to assume that they will not accept 580.

    My last year at A level didn't end too well for me because the school sort of led me down the wrong path in terms of my academic performance, so I underachieved there due to their ill-guidance. So I moved schools and have demonstrated that I am able to achieve the high grades and made exceptional performance (the courses are linear this year as well - none are modular exams).

    So are you retaking a year? If so many medical schools won't accept that. Unless you have extenuating circumstances.
    Definitely avoid most if not all UKCAT universities. Try the BMAT. And if not reapply.

    If you look close enough, you will find a few universities that'll accept your application. There are 34, and they all have nuanced policies. Just don't be afraid to do the digging yourself.

    Best wishes,
