I'm on a gap year right now trying to decide what to do and where to apply.
My stats are:
GCSEs: 11A* 2A
A Levels: AAB (B due to mitigating circumstance)
UKCAT: 730 average, Band 1
I will definitely be re-sitting the B grade this year and hopefully getting it to an A*.
Would you advise that I resit an A grade subject in the hopes of getting an A*? One of the subjects was REALLY close to an a* I don't know- is it worth it? Most schools want AAA so I've technically already achieved the requirements, but would a predicted A* make me look more competitive, or is it pointless?
Where would you recommend that I apply? Not many schools take retakes
So far I'm thinking Plymouth, Exeter and King's Extended year... what are people's thoughts? What could be my last choice?
I don't want to sit the BMAT
Is it really that intense? Would I cope?
