    Im not completely sure how it works for international students but judging by the info you've given (like the high ukcat score)... I say Manchester is a great choice

    Do you have any GCSE equivalent qualifications?
    I have Canadian high school script

    I think they should, my average was about 95 in Canada, and I have the Ontario Provisional report. I have emailed to the schools to ask for specifc criteria. Thanks for your consideration!

    hey man, i am on the 8th decile, so i am expecting an interview from manchester. will it hurt my chances if i hand in the form a couple of weeks from now on instead of now? in other words, do they send out interviews as they receive applications or at the end once they have all of them?

    Well done on the UKCAT!
    I sent mine late at night on the day of the deadline and I was one of the first to be interviewed... so I don't think it matters when you send it because they don't give out interviews until they have everyone's form

    I'm applying here and achieved a UKCAT score of 662.5. This roughly puts me in the top 1/3 of candidates so would I stand a good chance of interview? I've posted on here my other stats such as my GCSEs (8A*s,3As). I've got lots of volunteering/work experience and high predicted grades (A*A*A).
    Otherwise I'm hoping to get an interview through their holistic pathway too.
    I honestly loved Manchester and would genuinely love to get an offer from here.

    Anyone else hoping for an interview through the holistic pathway?
    GCSEs = 5A* 5A
    Predictions = A*AA
    UKCAT = 613
    Loads of extracurricular/voluntary/work experience. Hoping the rest of my stats will bring me to a holistic interview! As far as I'm aware, its the first year Manchester has done this holistic thing? So I really don't know what to expect if they'll take a UKCAT as low as mine but i love Manchester!

    Applied to manchester
    GCSE 5A* 5A
    A level predicted A*AA (biology, chemistry, psychology)
    UKCAT 3120 (780 avg) SJT band 1
    Only AS was maths.... and I got a C, but I have 2 instruments (piano and cornet) at grade 8 so I hope that will cover for me
    Around 300 hours work experience (just over)
    What are my chances looking like? Thanks in advance
    Wow that's an insane UKCAT, how on earth did you manage that? You should definately get an interview!

    All good choices, what does the partners scheme actually do? And I’ve applied to Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield and Newcastle 🙂 good luck in your application!

    Aw thank you! It means you get a lower offer (ABB) and a lower UKCAT cut off . Those are good Northern choices, are you from up North?

    Ayyyyeeeee, close to Manchester but I’d still want to stay at uni accommodation purely to get the full uni experience! PM me if you wanna discuss the application since most of our stats are so similar (I feel like we’re clogging the thread) 😂

    You could apply to Manchester but it will be a little risky due to your UKCAT
