    Hi guys,

    I am currently looking to apply to med school. I only achieved 1 A* at GCSE and 12 As but have pulled myself together for A-Levels. My UKCAT was 3110 and I have been predicted A*A*A (Chemistry,Biology & Psychology). Any ideas on where to apply?

    You'd get 4 guaranteed interviews if you apply to St. George's, Plymouth, Sheffield and Newcastle/St Andrews

    GUARANTEED

    Yes. St. George's interview anyone who has at least 650 in the UKCAT and at leat 8 A grades at GCSE. Newcastle, Southampton, St. Andrews rank everyone on their UKCAT, you'd definitely meet the cut-off and I think they interview everyone who meets that cut-off. You'd definitely meet the UKCAT cut-offs for Sheffield and Manchester as well, after that though I think they look at your PS (Manchester have their own version called a non-academic form), at least I know Manchester do, not sure about Sheffield, you should check that on their website.

    What does the non-academic form entail?

    Once you meet minimum gcse and A Level predictions, they rank on UKCAT and make a UKCAT cutoff. Obviously you meet the minimum GCSEs and A Levels and have a highs ukcat, so you'd get interviewed.

    You could also take the BMAT and apply to Cambridge, as they aren't very fussed on GCSEs.

    Yes with such a good ukcat score provided that your non academic form is up to standard.

    The non-academic form is extremely short, do you have any advice for completing it?

    Well, I mean it is longer than a personal statement. I am also doing the form myself soon and I found advice to be good on the Manchester applicant 2018 entry thread. Look it up and there is advice in the recent posts.

    Idk if it's guaranteed like the others, but you'd stand a very good chance, just not a guaranteed chance if you know what I mean, so apply there if you want to.
