    So my UKCAT was just as bad as I thought it'd be tbh.
    VR- 580
    AR-600
    QR-710
    SR- band 2, so an average of 630. meh.
    My GCSEs were good, 9a*s, 2as
    AS grades were decent, 2as, 2bs
    I have 1 week private & 1 week nhs work experience.
    Do I even have a chance of applying, and what unis do you think don't use UKCAT that much? Should I just gap the year? :confused::confused:
    thanks :ahhhhh:

    I think you stand a chance as long as you look at places where UKCAT does not have a huge emphasis maybe birmingham but I would suggest cardiff due to your GCSEs. Also maybe Bristol depending on your personal statement. Tbh you haven't got much to lose if you apply this year as you've already done the hard UKCAT part then if you don't get in then you can always apply again. Also you consider applying to BMAT unis

    trust me your ukcat score is just above average of 615-625! look at liverpool, manchester, etc if not then look at bmat unis, leeds, imperial etc. your gcse grades are phenomenal!
