    Hi I was hoping to apply to medicine for the 2017 entry but I can't help but think of how bad my UKCAT score has been. (also considering the fact that I'm an international student)
    All my other stats are pretty alright (i hope)
    9A* at GCSEs
    A*AAA at A levels

    its just that my UKCAT is:
    VR - 630
    QR -670
    AR - 690
    SJ - Band 3

    Could anyone give me some suggestion on which unis I would be "safe" applying to and which I should definitely avoid?

    Thanks for saving a very disheartened life in advance

    Hi, sorry to hear that your results weren't as good as you had hoped! From the top of my head you should avoid at least King's and Scottish unis. Here's a link to a useful document which explains how unis use the UKCAT: https://www.google.fi/url?sa=t&rct=j...ksP45V21tp9rbg

    If I were you, I'd maybe pick 2 unis that aren't heavy on the UKCAT, and 2 BMAT unis (and practice for that a lot). Good luck

    Thanks feeling a bit down but hopefully bmat will be better
