    Hey, so I have just received my AS level results and I have got to admit they weren’t great.
    C- chem
    D- german
    E- maths
    But my teachers think I am capable and are going to predict me an ABB. I am also in the manchester access programme. Do you think I still have a shot at applying for medicine? (With MAPs the offer gets reduced from AAA to ABB).

    Hey,

    Manchester don’t actually use AS grades within the selection process, so as long as you’ve got the prediction you should be fine. You definitely still have a shot at applying for Medicine, there’s nothing to stop you. Just work hard and get those predicted grades! ☺️

    Hi,I am considering to apply for Manchester Medicine 5 year course. I have a question regarding Medicine selection process. Do they offer Medicine places purely based on MMI interview outcome or both Interview and Academic / Non-Academic achievements? I could not able to get answer from their web page / FAQ. It would be a great, if someone could able to clarify my question at the earliest. This will help me to make a conscious and clear decision.

    Hi,
    Applicants are selected for interview based on academic achievements, UKCAT and the Non-academic form. Once at the interview stage, your performance on the day will be the sole decider of whether you’re given an offer.

    Hi everyone,
    We are a group of practicing doctors who are also GP tutors for students from the University of Manchester. In Year 1 you do spend some time in a GP surgery where you learn the basics of taking a history from a patient and getting to know the different members of the healthcare team in primary care and what they each do. The university is very hot on exploring the social side of patients and how these can affect their illness, for example poverty, ethnicity etc. You will also start to learn about chronic diseases and how to take a history from patients who have them. The patients chosen for you will be likely in keeping with the case you are discussing in your problem based learning session that week. If you come to Manchester we might be teaching you one day in our surgery!

    You can see from this why and how they can check some of the qualities needed for this in MMI medical school interviews.

    Hello there and congratulations on meeting your offer!

    I just wanted to ask how exactly Manchester uses the non academic information form when selecting those for interview because I’ve read that they invite those with the top 30% UKCAT scores and at least band 3. I achieved 762.5 avg band 3 and my non academic achievement aren’t awful but I just wanted to get an understanding of how much of a role it plays or whether it’s considered at the interview instead. Manchester is the uni im undecided on and I would obviously like to lean towards UKCAT heavy unis but if this forms a big part of selection for interview I would have to re evaluate and see if I have a reasonable chance at interview.

    Other unis are Newcastle Sheffield and Leicester, reason for Leicester being I’m a gap year student and they automatically invite applicants with achieved a levels to interview provided they have at least 4 Bs in 4 mandatory gcse subjects as well as top 70% ukcat with at least band 3.

    Hi,
    To my knowledge, those in the top 30% of UKCAT scores get an interview straight away- they don't look at anything else. With your score I am pretty sure you fall into this category so I encourage you to apply!
    If are not in the top 30% then they consider other things, GCSEs, predicted grades and the NAI form.
    I also know the NAI formed is used in the interview.

    I know that manchester is a ukcat heavy uni but they also consider applicants through a holistic route. My question is do you know anyone who got in with a low ukcat score (how low?) and how important the extracurricular form is when being considered by the holistic route?
    many thanks

    How much weighting does the Non Academic Form have when selecting for interviews? I'm applying as an international with 6A*1A at O-levels, 4A at AS, predicted 4A* at Alevels, Ukcat avg of 675 and SJ band 2. However, for the caring role, I only have a month's experience in a school for autistic children. Would you say I have a chance of getting in?
