    I'd say take the BMAT, and maybe apply to Cardiff, Oxford ( bit risky ), QUB and Bham/ Maybe Bristol if you have a good PS

    Hey there,

    You've got a pretty good A level / GCSE record there! Well done! With grades like that, even with a low UKCAT score, you could still apply to universities like Cardiff, which only uses the UKCAT to determine the best candidate in a tie-break situation.

    We've actually got a free blog on which unis to apply to with a low UKCAT score. Just follow that hyperlink!

    Hope it helps and good luck with your application,
