Which Medical School to apply to?

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, i would much appreciate some advice as to which uk med school it would be best for me to apply to based upon my grades. I just want the best chance of getting interviews and i know some schools value academics more than others. I heard that good grades can practically 'guarantee' you an interview at some places but i dont know if that just BS?
    I have:
    10A* GCSE
    A*A*A* predicted for Alevel
    677 average UKCAT :/
    (Not doing the BMAT)
    Thanks so much for any help )

    Your grades are great, and with such good GCSEs I'd recommend applying to GCSE heavy unis, like Birmingham, King's, Cardiff, Edinburgh.
    With your A-Level grades I think you can apply anywhere! I wouldn't be worried about that UKCAT score either.
