    What do you think my chances are of being considered for 2017 entry with achieved A levels ABB? I did get really good GCSE's and above average UKCAT (did that yesterday) and I know some uni's have different weighting for UKCAT and Academic stuff, I was wondering if anywhere wouldn't mind my grades being below their requirements if this was countered by good GCSE's and UKCAT...

    You will strugle- do you have any mittagating circumstances to explain your lower drades? OR do you come from a low preforming Sixform and/ or been eligable for FSM? If so you may be eligable for a contextual offer.

    ABB in the absence of mitigating circumstance/disadvantage/crap schooling usually means no offers. No point beating about the bush about this.

    Sorry for being blunt but it isn't likely, but they may consider you if you have mitigating circumstances, however you could always retake A levels and reapply - I know some universities (Lancaster) will consider you. Wish you all the best.

    Yes, your GCSE's arn't grate but you still have a chance if you get a very good UKAT score. Did you know that at gcse oxbridge only acctually require c grade passes in maths, english and doulle science. However you would need A*A*A grades at A2

    I just check St Georges website and they will consider you application if you've achieved AAB-ABB depending on the average scores at your school.
