    Should I do the BMAT or is it a pointless risk?
    I got 9A* and 2A at GCSE, AAACC (C in Chem and Phys and I dropped History at A2 as it is too much work) in AS and am predicted A*AA at A2 in Chem, Bio and French.
    I got 1910 total on the UKCAT

    is it worth it or no?
    I am thinking of applying to Edinburgh, Sheffield, Liverpool (definitely)
    and maybe KCL if not Oxford or Imperial if I do the BMAT.
    THANKS!

    Hi, BMAT is risky but if you have your heart set on a BMAT uni then putting down one option and doing really well on the BMAT could be a potential offer.
    As for UKCAT, Sheffield and Liverpool look good but I would be wary about Edinburgh and KCL. Your UKCAT averages out to around 630's I think and they are very UKCAT heavy schools, if your STJ band is high maybe see what places use those?
    Also, bear in mind imperial have a BMAT cut-off and Oxford looks at each part of the BMAT differently, but with your grades could be a good shot

    The main one I know of is HYMS, the use it as part of interview offer then again as part of making an offer alongside interview score

    I didnt want to start another thread just for a related question - with 9A* and 2A what would be the required minimum in each of the sections for the BMAT to at least be shortlisted for interview?
