    I'm applying to St Andrews too! I believe the campus choice determines where you spend your clinical years of medical school, as only the first 3 are spent in St Andrews if you've read about how the course works. In Scotland I think you can go to Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh or Glasgow. Not sure about England though, or how choosing where you go in Scotland works...

    Hope that helps!

    Ah, alright. Thanks!

    Do you know if they are UKCAT heavy? My UKCAT is 649, a bit on the low end

    They rank their applicants based upon the UKCAT, once all of the minimum criteria are met. Tbh, I'm not sure how much GCSEs are used, but the top 400 ranked UKCATs get an interview. So it is quite UKCAT heavy.

    The average (which has been scaled for this year only using 3 sections) for a successful applicant was 2080 total, so bit above your score unfortunately, but it's worth a go if you want to go there.

    Hope that helps you!
