    Bristol is only using the UKCAT score for 10% of your overall score - 20% is from your qualifications/predicted grades and a whopping 70% from your PS, This means that a low UKCAT will not have much impact against a good PS : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...e/mb-medicine/

    I got an average of 670 SJT band 2

    Verbal: 570
    Quantitative: 780
    Abstract: 660

    GCSE: 6A*4A

    A level predictions: A*A*A*

    AS results: AAAA

    Interview skills: Not so good

    Maximum 1 BMAT uni, probs Cambridge

    Looking for a uni that will guarantee and interview and has low interview rejection rates. (i.e. 500 called at interview, 300 offers, so 60% chance of getting in if called to interview)

    Initial choices:
    Leicester, Exeter, St. Georges and Cambridge

    Any suggestions?
    Exeter is definitely sensible with your predictions.
    St. Georges definitely looking good, Leicester is also looking good. I think you have picked sensible options, Cambridge will be fine if your AS UMS is high and BMAT is good, hard to say without knowing either. Your GCSEs are fine for most BMAT, just not Oxford!

    I hope this is realistic and not optimistic.

    Slightly off topic, but would some-one with AABC at AS ever get into Cambridge?
    Unlikely - they almost certainly wouldn't get an interview, never mind an offer. (Even with extenuating circumstances, unless you got great A2 and applied in gap year) Cambridge interviewees commonly have +90% in their most relevant three subjects, and even then the chance of an offer is very low.
