    Hi, I got a low UKCAT score of Avg: 615 Band 1 (average for the year is 635). My GCSES: 6A* 5A 3B (I took 2 GCSE retakes, before retake: 5A* 5A 4B) . I also got a C in AS maths but I'm retaking some modules. I want to apply to Imperial for sure. The others I'm not sure.
    I was thinking that St George's might be an option but I heard that they usually have a bit of a higher cut off (around the average).
    Cardiff is a nice choice, but I heard that they usually ask 8A*s (don't know if that's true).

    I really want to go to London but I realise that's hard now. Cardiff I'm happy to go to but like I said GCSES.

    Someone help I'm so confused😭

    You could consider Bristol or Keele with a good personal statement. Liverpool is also another choice, also needing a good personal statement. Perhaps consider applying to more BMAT universities.

    Here are my scores. Not disappointed nor happy about them either. I just want to know what my options are as it is my second time applying and I don't want to mess up again. Gap year is going great by the way.

    GCSE: 2A* (One being short-course) 9A 1D (French LMAO)
    Alevel: AAA (Achieved) Bio, Chem, Maths
    VR - 470 (Messed me up)
    DM - 640
    QR - 830
    AR - 680
    SJ - Band 2
    Overall = 2620 / Average = 655 L's

    **My personal statement is also quite strong I think.**
    Applied to: Liverpool, Bristol and Leeds (bmat) so far. Don't know what final uni to pick! help.
What's the best type of cheese?
