    Hi

    I could only find the thread for the 5 year course at Newcastle so I thought I would open a new one for GEM.

    Anyway... Applying to Newcastle as I surprisingly got a better UKCAT than expected (810).

    wait i thought you just need to give the contact details for the references, or do you actually need them written to include in the UCAS app?

    I just wanted to get it done nice and early. Also on the UCAS website it states:

    'Keep in touch with your referee to make sure the reference is completed in time, and then you’ll be able to pay your application fee and send your application to us.' (https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu...uate-reference)

    So I just assumed that it had to be all done before the 15th.

    That's a tough one. Last year it was 720 but the average has gone down this year. However, we will never be certain what their cutoffs will be as they go on who apply. I'm not far off you and I'm debating it also.
