No idea about how many people are having offer. When are you taking UKCAT?
Because I will have to move to Manchester or Bolton in August, I have booked it in September and that way I will have a bit more time to prepare for it. Are u planning to do Access course at Manchester college ?

I have applied there and been accepted I am starting this September. Also booked my UKCAT.
Do have any idea about how many ppl from Manchester college have had offers?
I think a fair few people have been accepted, it's entirely dependant on the quality of your application. As far as I'm aware they don't look upon Access to HE any less favourably than A-levels. I have read a lot of success stories 😊

Yeah. I have heard lots of success stories but all of them from the internet. Manchester college ignored my question regarding how many ppl got offers, but the team leader said " some ppl don't work hard to achieve the grades and end up without offers and fail their applications" .
Not too sure this course, but I am gonna go for it.
By the way what unis are you guys thinking of?
I want to apply to Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle and Leicester as these have huge number of med students and there is a good chance of getting offers at one of them.

Yeah I don't think they keep numbers because it is entirely dependant on how hard you work. For Instance some years could have a full class that all work hard and achieve the grades and places and Uni but then the next year a full class could not try hard enough and none of them get places. So, it wouldn't be fair for the college to keep numbers as it's not an accurate reflection of the quality of the course. As I said, it's completely dependant on how hard you're willing to work.

I have also been looking at Manchester and Liverpool, I'm still choosing the other 2.

But I am not gonna apply for this.... Because it's not a live course.... There is another website the medic portal they also have UKACT course in Manchester...

My UKCAT test is booked in September. I have bought a book called " ukcat guide 1200 questions 2017". However, using books won't be very effective since the exam is on computer. I am going to buy access to an online ukcat videos, practice and mock exams at a website called "medify" here is the link: https://www.medify.co.uk/ukcat
It is quite good and friends who did their exam last year recommended it, also you study at your pace at home.
