    GCSE: 4A* 5A's
    As: AAABb
    Alevel:BBB
    Predicted 2:1 in a degree
    UKCAT: 2450

    Work experience: TONS. I have loads in healthcare, loads in university. I've held numerous roles and responsibilities, have medals for excellence volunteering in my uni and across the country

    Do you think it is suicide to apply to Kings/Barts for UNDERGRAD medicine? Ive had educational disruptions and had to take years off because no school would take me, my dad is a pilot and we've never stayed somewhere more than an year. It's been kind of hard to fit in again, start over again. I know its nothing serious, but just need some honest advice.

    I know Kings look at applications hollistically, and barts have interviewed people who had 606 in UKCAT last year? Would appreciate any advice, or even what medical schools to apply to- I'm struggling with choices. Unfortunately due to some family drama I cannot sit the BMAT, barely did UKCAT. If its the end, I'll just take an year out and go in a different field.

    I would say considering your UKCAT is low and your predicted grades aren't as high as other applicants would be you are better off applying elsewhere

    So you're doing an undergrad degree at the moment? I'm not sure - Given you don't meet the A-Level standards for Undergrad, I'm afraid I don't know what they expect degree-wise for it. It may be worth emailing them. If not, I'm sure there's less "well known" places you could do a medicine degree. At the end of the day, a degree in medicine is just that. It's not much more or less prestigious because it was done at a different University.
