    With those IGSCE scores, you stand a good chance for an interview at Birmingham
    thanks but no chance of Birmingham, they require A level Bio.

    Hey
    I am an international student and my stats are :

    IGCSE's - 9A* - 1B (First Language English)

    UKCAT - Total 2710, average 678

    SJT - Band 1

    Predicted A levels: 4 A*

    I have a decent amount of volunteer work and shadowing in hospital

    I was thinking of applying to Kings, Barts, Edinburgh and Birmingham . I am worried that my UKCAT may be low for Kings or Glasgow? Any advice?
    You have great statistics! Your score is actually fine for Glasgow and Kings because they give a larger attention to your GCSEs, which you have!

    Look into Kings College London and St. Georges as well. They do not require Biology
    Thanks just checked both of those and sadly for me they both need Biology. Shot myself in the foot not taking it for A level.

    "Chemistry is required One subject from Biology/Human Biology, Maths and Physics is required"

    Hi there, I am also an international student applying for 2018 entry.
    my stats:
    iGCSE : 9 A*
    AS : 4 A's
    A2 prediction : Chem and Physics A*, Maths A
    UKCAT 2550, SJ3
    BMAT : TBA

    Looking at : Dundee, St Andrews, Keele, Barts, Bristol, Leeds.

    I think Barts out of the question now though as UKCAT so low.

    opinions anyone?
    The only thing is that Keele only has 10 places for International Students, so a school like Dundee (18 spots), Bristol (16 spots) and Leeds (20 spots) is a lot more likely

    This is from St George's : A level: Three subjects to include Chemistry and Biology or Human Biology. General Studies and Key Skills not accepted.

    And from King's:
    Including Chemistry and Biology. All applicants must take the UKCAT. Please see further details below.
    Additionally, GCSE grade 6/B in both English Language and Mathematics required.
    NOTE: If you are taking linear A levels in England, you will be required to pass the practical endorsement in all science subjects.

    Yes tossed Keele as a choice and Barts, they need AS level Bio as a minimum.

    Hoping my BMAT will be better than my UKCAT score as banking on Leeds as another choice.

    What are your stats?
    Predicted 4A*s in A levels, 8 A*s in O levels (GCSE equivalent) and UKCAT 705 Band 1. Do you think I have any chance as I have tariff of only 224 but minimum Tariff required by internationals for interview last year was much higher?

    For International students, Birmingham does not look at the GCSE grades at all. It's only the rest of the academic requirements they see, if you meet them, you have a good chance of an interview

    yeah... but a 705 UKCAT for an international applicant is sufficient to get you to the interview stage at Bham
