    I got an average of 613 in my ukcat. I have good predicted scores (90%+) and grade 10 scores of three A*s and two As out of the five subjects that I had chosen. I also have work experience in hospitals and many academic and co curricular awards. I have been thinking of applying to Bristol, Dundee, Cardiff and Newcastle. Are they likely to accept my application? I've heard that Bristol only considers UKCAT as 10% of its entire application.

    Yep, Bristol only count the ukcat as 10%. But as the PS is 70% make sure yours is strong, including what you learned from you work ex. Cardiff is also a good option but I'm not sure about Newcastle as they love the ukcat. - so I fear it could be a waste of an option for you as they put so much emphasis on the exam. I know Glasgow like a good ukcat score but look at the application as a whole so that might be a better option? There's also Aberdeen . Tbh you're best off having a good look yourself and make your own judgements - don't take opinions on TSR as gospel! Good luck
