    They're quite GSCE heavy when they select people for interview. A good UKCAT (>690) could compensate for average or lower than average GSCEs though.

    I wouldn't apply with less than 7A* and <700 UKCAT.

    Would 11* and 1A (7* and A in English language) and 690 be too risky?

    690 is decent.

    I'm confused. Do you have 11A* 1A, or 7A*1A?

    Oh right. Your GCSEs essentially cancel out your UKCAT, so I would.

    They are essentially heavy. With your profile you should apply, you have a good shot!
