    I honestly don't think either i a good option. For leicester you would be below the points cut off for last year and i assume the same for Aberdeen seeing as they use the UKCAT and GCSE's. Have you thought about Keele or Bristol? Or Bmat uni's.

    If your adamant on one of those i'd go Aberdeen

    Thank you for the reply, today's the deadline and I still haven't decided! Keele is out of the question because I applied last year and they don't accept reapplications and with Bristol I've a B in English Language so I can't apply there. I was advised not to do the BMAT as there is a lot more competition there, thank you very much for your help!

    Definitely not Leicester - you would be below the cutoff. If your personal statement is good maybe consider Liverpool?

    I can't really help much as I'm not sure if your personal statement is good enough or not

    I know you said that you were advised not to do the BMAT, but I found that there was actually less competition with it as people aren't able to apply tactically with it (as you both sit and find out your score after application) so you have a far better chance of getting in as long as you do averagely well.
    (Also, I know this is a bit last minute, but it might be something to consider for your 4th choice if you don't mind some extra work)

    Have you thought about Cardif? Apparently they look at achieved grades aswell as your GCSE's pre-interview, so you would have a good shot
