Getting Into Medicine

    • Thread Starter

    So, I had 2A*5A and 1B in my O level Exams, and am predicted an A*AA for my A-level subjects:BiologyChemistry PhysicsI just gave the UKCAT and am satisfied with the scores I got except for Verbal Reasoning. My score was:Verbal Reasoning- 480Quantitative Reasoning- 650Abstract Reasoning- 620I scored a BAND 1 in the Situational Judgement Section.Which Universities do you guys think I should apply to and will have higher chances of getting in? I'm applying for medicine. I reallyyy want to get into King's College. I still have to give the BMAT. I've done quite a lot of extra curricular activities:
    head girl of the school for 4 yrs
    head of the community and welfare society at college
    I've won a national competition (came first in the British council Video Competition)
    have done debating and was the best debater of my school.
    I'm really scared because I really want to get into medicine but because of my UKCAT score, I feel a little let down. Do you think I have a chance of getting into Kings, Glasgow or Edinburgh??

    I've read up places that last year or so King's accepted students with a low UKCAT score and even rejected some with a UKCAT score above 750.
