Hi all,

Another kings hopeful

GCSEs 6xA*, 4xA, 1xB
A Level predicted 3xA*
UKCAT 720 band 1

I really liked the feel of Kings from all the open days I visited, and the anatomy option for intercalation looked great. Everyone was so friendly and I’d love to study in London for the first part of the course at least.

Good luck everyone 😎

Hi guys,
I'm also a Kings hopeful!

GCSEs: 3x9, 5xA* and 2xA
A Level predicted: A*A*A*
UKCAT: 757.5 Band 2 (VR 670, DM 750, QR 860, AR 750)

I really enjoyed seeing Kings at the open day.
I haven't seen any other unis yet so cant make any comparisons!

Good Luck everyone!

GCSE's: 10 A*, 1A
AS: 4 A's
Ukcat: 672.5 average and band 4

The only problem i have is the band 4 so i'm wondering if anyone knew how heavily they concentrate on the band 4?

Also to people who are struggling with timing, just guess the ones you don't know or will take longer than e.g. 50 seconds on QR. and for SJT literally go with your gut bc i was getting band 2 in mocks but look at how that turned out lmao

Even though the score and GCSEs are incredible, the band 4 is going to mean that a lot of unis (including kings) won’t consider your application further...

Some options for you (sorry my enter button doesn't seem to be working)- Bristol (this is the first year that they are 100% UKCAT so the cut off is likely to be high- may be a risky option), Cardiff (I think they also weigh the PS this year so could be subjective- shouldn't be a problem if you PS is excellent), Exeter (if you have a 3A* prediction then having a UKCAT of 667 or above should be enough), St Andrews- your score is more than enough for it and the SJT is only used in borderline cases, UEA, SGUL...

Yep, southampton doesn't consider sjt, which is great. Alongside some other uni's which this thread says:

King's is definitely my first choice; I loved it when I visited!

GCSEs: 8A*, 2A
UKCAT: 682.5, Band 2 SJT
A-Level Predictions: A*A*A

Really hope I'll get an interview, but I'm worried that my UKCAT score is a bit too low... :/

Hey guys! I'm a 4th year Barts Medic. If anyone needs any help/ assistance with their applications, feel free to message me! I have a lot of experience in this, all Medicine applicants I've helped have got offers into Medicine. I can review personal statements to make sure it's the best standard to receive interviews and do one-to-one tailored interview tuition (for panel or MMI)

I’m considering KCL and this is my profile:
GCSE- 9,8,8,8 A*s and an A
A Level predicted- 4A*s
Work Experience- 3 days in a hospital and 9 months and counting with mencap
Extra Curricular- Dance, House captain, public lectures, read some books, competitions
UKCAT- 665 Band 2

Is this okay for Kings. I’ve asked lots of people and some say that my UKCAT score is competitive for Kings some are saying it’s below the cut off and the uni told me that getting above 650 is a good score. I’m going to apply regardless but I’m so confused about my UKCAT score and whether or not it’s good
My friend just got into King's this year with pretty much the same stats. She was predicted 2 A*s and 2 As. She got A*AA and is now studying a King's so fingers crossed you get in. You can do it.
