What is your UKCAT score?

The cut off level would be low this year for all medical schools compared to previous years as shown from the results. So do not worry
I thought Aston said they didn't have a ukcat cut off :eek:? my score is really bad it's 2300 (i was so nervous and I forgot to look at the time so I left over 40 questions blank)

also, is there any point for me to apply for the widening participation if I have already achieved my GCE? and I also noticed that the form should be completed by a teacher not a uni professor (but I'm a graduate applicant )

Hey,

As stated on the e-mail, those holding a degree will not be eligibile for WP.
They will consider your UKCAT alongside your GCSEs/A levels already achieved.

If you can sign it by a professor in your previous Uni, this will be great. The aim of this section is that a trustable person confirms that you meet the criteria for widening participation, does not matter if he a teacher in a school or a professor in the uni. At the end of the day, he knows you and can confirm that you meet the criteria according to your circumstances. you can show him evidence if he asks. Also, show him your postcode check result according to the supplied link.

Regarding UKCAT, Aston medical school is one of the uni which is ideal for students with low UKCAT.

Good Luck

Sorry I did not notice that in the email sent to us:

If after looking at our widening participation criteria you believe you qualify, you will need to fill out and return an additional information form. Please note applicants who are currently taking part in the Sir Doug Ellis Pathway to Healthcare Programme will not need to complete this form. Additionally international students and those who are currently doing or already hold a Bachelors or Higher degree are not eligible.

Many thanks. I have mitigating circumstances but no place in the application form to add them and the teacher does not know about these circumstances because they happened in my previous school. Can I send these as a separate document with the application form?

I would advise talking to your teacher and asking them to fill in the extenuating circumstances section on the teacher declaration sheet

Yeah id say you have a good chance as long as you do well in the UKCAT- It's usually a strong differentiator of applicants.

All the dates of interview invitations are in this link, I cannot vouch for its accuracy though.
yup i just saw this before your post. But for Aston they have a wide range and do not specify particularly which dates for interview
