    Edinburgh is very competitive. You can find their scoring criteria for offers online. You would need close to full marks for academics+personal statement+reference with that ukcat score. How are your academics (GCSE&Predicted), personal statement and sjt band? If those are very strong (full marks), it can compensate for a low ukcat score.

    Looking at your stats, If I were you I would not apply Edinburgh. It is one of the most competitive medical schools because they do not interview anyone, so they only look for the best.

    Is it still worthwhile applying for Glasgow/St Andrews?

    Not sure about Glasgow, but St Andrews seems viable.

    I'm thinking Aberdeen,St Andrews, Dundee and Glasgow might be my best options, since I can't apply for any English universities 🤔
