    I've received in school the whole way up A grades in my national 5's and got five a-band ones in my highers receiving dux. however, I got a really low UKCAT score of 2280 and I don't really know what to do. I do think I've got a pretty good personal statement with my achievements, work experience and extra curricular activities. I don't know whether its worth applying this year or trying again next year to improve my score.

    Hi there!

    You might find it useful to look at our blog on Where to Apply with a UKCAT Score Under 600 for 2018 Entry.

    Alternatively, it may be worth taking a gap year, retaking your UKCAT and working on other elements of your application, like work experience. You can read more on Reapplying to Medical School here.

    Hope this helps!
