    I really want to go for medicine but I think my stats are too low, is there any medical school that would possibly offer me an interview with 2A*,8A,4Bs at GCSE, no AS levels due to the new system and predicted A*AA.
    My UKCAT score is an average of 620 and total of 1860.
    Hey there,

    Well, you've got fine GCSE grades! And it doesn't matter that you don't have any AS level grades. Many med schools state that they are not going to consider AS levels in light of the new linear A level system.

    Check out this page on AS admissions policies for UK Medical Schools.

    Your UKCAT score is OK. You should probably apply to universities that don't put a lot of emphasis on the UKCAT. Bristol for instance, focus most of their admissions policy around the personal statement!

    Have a look at this blog on which universities to apply to with a low UKCAT score.

    Other than that, you've still got time to work hard and start preparing for the BMAT! Have you thought about applying to BMAT universities?

    Hope you find the above useful, The Medic Portal
