    Ayyy Beat me to it Can't wait to see what happens! Even if I don't get in first time it's still pretty interesting to see what kind of people get accepted. As in what sort of scores they have, etc.

    I've heard that at Dundee once you get an interview offer it's based fully on interview performance which is so interesting, everyone will be on a level playing field basically

    Im applying to Dundee too with AAAA at A2 and ukcat 697 SJT Band 1 with two weeks work experience and a fair bit of voluntary work. I was trying to see what kind of requirements were accepted in previous years but had no luck. Fingers crossed we get the interview and a subsequent offer!

    I mean it really depends on your other stats too. What are they? But if you really like Aberdeen you should give it a try!

    I'll be applying here as an RUK applicant

    GCSEs: A^ 6A* 3A (including English Language) 2B (including a science GCSE I did in year 9 which is essentially made obsolete by the fact I got A*A*A* in the separate sciences)
    AS Levels: AAAA Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Chemistry
    A2 (predicted): A*A*A* + A*A* in EPQ (medically related) and General Studies
    UKCAT: 2360 Band 1 (787 average)

    I'm a bit worried where they say that they encourage up to two weeks of medically-related work. I only really have 3 days in hospitals, but I've been volunteering at a care home for 6 months? I just hope it's enough and I show them I've done enough research and have the knowledge and commitment required...

    Hey,

    what do guys think my chances of interview are with a UKCAT of 617 band 2 but all A's in my exams. My UKCAT score edges it into the 4th decile but would that be enough? :/


    Thanks
