    Hi,
    I was wondering which medical schools are quite GCSE heavy in the UK.
    Thanks.

    Cardiff only look at UKCAT in borderline cases after interview. Leicester weight GCSE and UKCAT 50:50, QUB look at GCSES 85% and UKCAT 15% I think, but you should check on that. And St. George's set minimum cut-offs for both, the GCSE cut-off is 8 As incl Sciences, Maths and English language and the UKCAT cut-off is usually 640-650 (they also have cut-offs for each sub-section but that is usually always only 500 for each sub-section), providing you meet those minimum cut-offs, you will definitely get an interview at St. George's. Birmingham weigh GCSES and UKCAT 70:30.
