    What are not heavy gcse medicine unis

    What are not heavy gcse medicine unis
    Medicine applicant with 3A*s 2As and 4Bs here so I’ll tell you where I applied.
    Exeter- 5As, Passes in maths and English
    Manchester-5As, think it’s same
    SGUL- 416 pts (8A average)
    Cam- just passes in maths and English (though I wouldn’t recommend, pretty much everyone has lots of A*s so it makes it even more difficult to get in than Cam already is)
    (I got interviews from all of above)
    Others I considered were: QMUL, Kings, UCL, Imperial, Leicester, Liverpool, keele, BSMS, Lancaster, Plymouth, Central Lancashire and Bristol.
    To be quite honest, with a good ukcat, you’ll be fine. Some of the above unis I didn’t apply to were because my ukcat didn’t make up for my GCSEs (675 av) or because they used like a scoring system.
    Also Sheffield, Newcastle QMUB, UEA, Glasgow, Hull-York, Aberdeen, Southampton, Dundee were all 6A minimums where they don’t count A*s for more (so I couldn’t apply).
    The ones to avoid and not even think about are:
    Oxford, Birmingham, Nottingham, Cardiff, Edinburgh,
