    Just any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated. Applying for Medicine (only a couple of days left). Stats: GCSE-8A*1A, AS-CBCAA Predicted-AAA (bio, chem and maths). UKCAT- 647 avg. Band 1 SJT. I am applying for both Bristol and Aberdeen, but am rather uncertain about the other two. Any suggestions anyone? I would much appreciate, few days left.

    Cardiff, Bham and other GCSE heavy uni's. Bristol is a risk but apply there if you want.

    Because it places 70% on the PS pre-interview. PS are always subjective so its more risky than applying for a place where you know you have a good enough UKCAT for example. I didn't mean it was risky for you, I meant Bristol as choice is risky. Unless of course your statement is unbelievable

    Ahh i see thx, that should be fine Bristol only introduced UKCAT so if I have a decent PS it should be fine + it's close to home so I'll be applying there anyways.
