    You'll be okay for Kings, because they look at the entire picture of the candidate

    Where else are you applying to?

    I think Barts and Kings are great options for you with that UKCAT and A levels instead of Exeter and Manchester.

    Kings and Imperial are good choices especially because you have a great IGCSE profile and because these schools have a high acceptance of International Students. Also, what are you expecting at A-Levels?

    I am International Student, did my GCSEs in London with 11A*s and I am currently doing IB in India with 7 Subjects, with Physics, Chemistry and Biology and English Literature at HL and Psychology, Maths and French B at SL! And my predicted grades are not going to be fantastic as I am expecting 35/36, excluding my extra HL, which is Physics. Our school doesn't inform us about the PGs which is a pain.

    Did my UKCAT recently and got 630 - which is super bad, I know. And I got a Band 2 in SJ.

    I have around 3/4 weeks of Clinical work experience and have a variety of volunteering aspects to talk about in my personal statement.

    I didn't want to apply to the UK as I dismissed it as too competitive and expensive, but now I want to. I wanted to know which Universities will be good for me. Please guide me, thanks

    Yo, with those grades you should apply to King's/Barts/Cardiff/Exeter etc. Check the unis that match your strengths.

    Hi again! These choices are a lot stronger than Keele personally. You already have a good UKCAT score so there really is no need to take the BMAT as well. It'll save you a lot of time. With these statistics, there are a range of schools you could apply to without needing to take any further tests!

    Thanks again. I actually want to apply for biomed in Oxford as well so I need BMAT. But my focus will still be medicine. I am waiting for the 2017 UKCAT statistics to be released to helo me make my choices.

    Hey guys,

    Sorry if this is a foolish question but how do you enter your grades on UCAS from a Bachelors degree? Do you enter every single course youv'e taken, or is there some way to attach your transcript?
