    Rule out Cardiff and Edinburgh. Your stats are solid for many medical schools so Bristol isn't the best idea as they put 70% weighting on ps which is subjective. If you like it apply, you meet the requirements and there's no reason to rule it out but its just risky providing you have good stats and guaranteed interviews elsewhere. I don't know much about BSMS, but the others are looking like very good options.

    This person posted the thread in the medicine forum and the 70% weighting on ps is for medicine applicants.
    I'm not sure about your course at all or how they use your ps. Sorry.
