    So I did the UKCAT and I'm disappointed with it.
    VR: 530
    QR: 850
    AR: 600
    Average: 660
    SJ: Band 2
    VR was so hard compared to the mocks and AR has always been my worst section.

    STATS:
    GCSE: 6A*s 4As B(art)
    I've done them just in 6 months as I came to the UK in Y11, so they're not great.
    AS: AAAAA
    A2: probable prediction A*A*AA
    Pretty strong personal statement
    3 weeks hospital placement (theatre/clinic/ward), 2 long term volunteering, sutton trust summer school, UCL summer challenge, sixth form representative, various awards and other extracurriculars.

    I'm taking the BMAT for UCL and Imperial. I want to stay in London but I don't think I stand a chance at UKCAT unis like Queen Mary/King's/St George's. What do you think?
    Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Hi there, well done for all your stats, looking good.

    If you are wanting to stay in london then I would go ahead with SGUL, Barts, UCL and Imperial and KCL may be to risky with a lower UKCAT and lower GCSE grades.
    I would say try to branch out though and look at places like UEA as you may have a good shot there.
