    As the title says, I'm on a gap year and want to apply for 2017 entry to med school.

    GCSEs: 5A's 5B's (my main concern)
    A-Levels: A*AA (History, Chemistry, Biology respectively)
    UKCAT: average score of 653

    I am unsure of where to apply to maximise my chances of getting offered a place (I know you have to do an interview). Could you please help!? I would really appreciate it. Do I even have a chance??

    Thanks in advance

    EDIT: My situational judgement is Band 2

    Have a look at Leicester. They give more points on their scoring system for achieved A levels. If your GCSE A*s are in the core subjects (maths English sciences) your score may be ok.

    Hiya I'm also applying for 2017 entry. Are you a reapplicant?
    You have to look at universities cut offs for ukcat for previous years as you will have to avoid ukcat heavy universities.
