    The date is near, and Im not sure where I stand with my achievements, and thought someone could tell me if I have any hope to do Medicine?!
    GCSE: 8A* ,4A and a Distinction in Additional Maths
    As: 4As (The 3 Science and Maths)
    A2: Currently doing Biol, Chem and Maths (and The Welsh Bacc...)

    UKCAT: Avarage of 680 (is that any good?!)
    VR: 630
    QR:720
    AR: 690
    SJT: Band 2 (is this going to be a issue?!)

    Have been teaching maths to year 7s for a year and done loads of one week work experience, such as Volunteering at a Science Tent at a Welsh festival, care homes, hospital, leadership course, and a day at a GP

    Swim regularly (grade 4 on the piano if thay counts for anything, hahah)

    Do I even have a chance at Medicine because I know how incredibly competitve it is, and if so which Unis? I thought maybe Cardiff and Liverpool, but is my Ukcat too low for Liverpool? And any suggestions for the other two? Thanks!!

    Last year for Cardiff you needed 8A*s and 1A at GCSE to include english language, bio, Chem, physics and maths OR an amazing personal statement if you have less!
    Your UKCAT is definetly good!

    Liverpool is a good choice, have a look at leicester, nottingam, HYMS, UEA, SGUL, birmingham, manchester, aberdeen as these may be good for you.
