    Hi! I have basically finished my UCAS application but am still undecided about my final choices. I want to apply to Unis to study Medicine in London and I currently have a 2:1 in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Manchester

    What do you think my best bets of getting a place from the following courses would be? I have a high UKCAT score but have not sat the BMAT (which I would have to book if I chose UCL/Imperial)

    KCL Undergrad
    KCL Postgrad
    Barts Undergrad
    Bart Postgrad
    UCL Undergrad
    UCL Postgrad
    Imperial Undergrad
    Imperial Postgrad

    Thanks for any help!

    If you're looking for advice on the general feel of the uni, I loved Barts and UCL (sadly can't afford to study in London) but I didn't like Imperial, and I thought I'd struggle to live & study in a uni with only other scientists & engineers.
    Course wise, I suppose look at how competitive they are. I think graduate entry is more competitive; also you may have to do an additional admissions test (GAMSAT) if you haven't already. I think postgrad is more competitive than undergrad, so definitely don't apply to postgrad only, probably a mix of both.
    If you decide on Imperial or UCL I think the deadline to book your BMAT is really soon, or may have already passed - so book it asap!
