    Hi there,

    Just sent off my application for Exeter! My stats are as follows: 3A*s predicted at A-Level, 5As at AS, 10A*s 1A at GCSE. 740 average UKCAT. Should hopefully get an interview...

    What are your stats?? Hopefully we'll get a bit more activity on this forum!

    Nice, I wouldn't be too concerned if you have a pretty good UKCAT. Presumably you've done your research on the Exeter selection procedure.

    Where else are you applying?

    No offence, but did 6 A levels not seem like an unmanageable amount when you picked them?

    It was hard but not unmanageable I was keeping up ok throughout the year. In the end it was my revision not going as planned- I wasn't motivated to revise at all. Ah well nothing I can do about it now. Where are you applying btw?

    That's fair enough aha. Everyone suffers from boredom of revision from time to time. I've applied to Oxford, KCL and St Andrews as my other choices. Wbu?

    Nice choices! I didn't have much choice really as I'm doing resits, I've applied to Bristol, Exeter, Lancaster and UEA also Imperial for 5th choice How are you finding the bmat? I need really high scores for Lancaster this year, last year I only had 3.7, 4.5 and 3.5A

    BMAT revision is tough along with all my other activity at school (rowing, EPQ, running MedSoc etc). I'm trying to do an hour or so a day, using the 600 questions book and then for the next two weeks I'll be using the 700 questions book and past papers as revision for it. Hoping for highs 6s for Oxford :/

    Anyone know what the Exeter MMI circuit is like?

    Yeah I'm using the 600 qs book too I'm also aiming for high 6s, don't need to get that high really but it's better to aim higher anyways
    I had an interview at Exeter last year, we had 7 stations I think and we had some time to read the question outside of the rooms before we went in. It was just the usual questions really nothing weird. I can't remember the time we had to answer sorry. It was all pretty relaxed though, there was plenty of time to answer the question/questions.

    Sounds like a pretty normal MMI then. I was just wondering if they have any policies like a station ased upon the SJT on the UKCAT or the like.

    Thank you!

    they don't, I called up the medical admissions team about that a few days ago and they said they only check gcse to see if you meet min requirement and they said that they mostly use UKCAT, AS results and A2 predictions

    thank you! I hope my ukcat doesn't hinder my application. I know they have a banding system but I'm confused as to how it works. My alevel predicted should put me in tier 1. However if tier 1 is oversubscribed do they then look at ukcat? Or is the ukcat only looked at for those in lower bands to cut down the number of applicants called for interview?
