I will be doing the BMAT in October as I want to apply to Leeds. My choices would be Sheffield, HYMS, Leeds and either Nottingham or Birmingham. Would these be okay or is my UKCAT not good enough for Sheffield or Nottingham?

Thanks!

They all sound good to me! However you may want to think about Birmingham more carefully. They normally invite those with a ukcat score in the top 30% for interview. But obviously the deciles haven’t been released yet. They also have an offer calculator tool where you can enter your stats which is quite helpful too! But Sheffield, HYMS and Nottingham sound alright!!

Out of them all, Birmingham would be the one I’d least likely to go to so I’m fine with that! Thanks for your reply!

No problem! I think you’re good to apply to all the others. I’m thinking of applying to HYMS too

Sheffield would be my first choice but I know that they compare UKCAT scores to determine who gets an interview, which is why I was concerned. HYMS looks so nice too! Good luck. I hope it all works out for you!

Thank you! HYMS would be my first choice as I love the place. Good luck to you too! It’s so stressful, starting my personal statement now! 😅

There’s so much you have to do, isn’t there?😂 that was one of my reasons for taking a gap year. I don’t think I could have done well in my A-Levels with everything else you have to do!

682.5 and band 1
GCSEs - 9A* and 2A
AS - AAAB
A level predicted - A*AA ( Chem, bio and geography)

Are my stats good enough for Kings, Cardiff, Liverpool, Nottingham ?? Alsoconsidering Birmingham and Barts maybe. worried about UKCAT tho. I'd love to go to Edinburgh but my ukcat is too low I think

!!!!ALSO can anyone please answer this question:!!!!
If im predicted A*AA and apply to AAA universities will they offer me A*AA or AAA coz wondering if its better to apply with AAA predictions to all AAA universities. Really worried that if I have A*AA predictions and apply to like Cardiff which is AAA, they will offer me place on A*AA coz of my predicitons despite AAA is their standard offer on website etc.
