    Hi everyone,

    bit worried about my application tbh...
    I got a Band 1 so im happy with that but a 2480 overall and I have 2 A*s 7 As and 1 B with a A* AA predicted for a levels. Also have a lot of experience

    Anyone have any advice?
    You score max 12/20 for academics, 6/6 for SJT and would have had 4 or 3 for UKCAT the last 3 years, so max of 22/34 with 6 still available for PS. See posts above for historical cut offs

    Hello everyone,

    I am just wondering for int'l students, what's the cut off score out of 40 to be applied? I am scoring as 20/20 for academics, 8/12 for the cat test, and hopefully making a score of 35/40.

    Many thanks.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a UK applicant and I'm applying to Edinburgh and I was wondering if anyone knows long it takes for them to send out offers/rejections? Just because obviously they don't interview so is it generally slower or quicker than other med schools?

    (Also if anyone's interested my UKCAT was 825 average with Band 1, I got 11A* at GCSE and I'm predicted A*A*A*A)

    Thanks in advance for any responses !

    Hi!

    I am a Scottish student wondering what the likelihood of getting an offer from Edinburgh would be.

    National 5: 7 A’s
    Highers: 5 A’s
    Predicted: AAAA (3 Advanced Highers and a crash Higher)
    UKCAT: 690 average, SJT band 2.

    I would hope that my personal statement would get 4/6 or 5/6.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Check the Edinburgh Selectors Handbook 2018 online as there is a brief description of what they check in the personal statement For a Scottish applicant you need a score of 35 or 36 minimum but that figure could go up or downNo way unfortunately of knowing what the figure will be

    I think there is every likelihood of you being in the top octile for UKCAT, and if you are in the 2nd, you will only drop 1 point. In the past, Home applicants have needed 34+ for an offer, so looking good!!
    I have received an e mail from Edinburgh admissions stating that 35 / 36 is needed but that figure can go up or down

    GANFYD I have a score of 20 for my academics as all A’s for 8 Nat 5 6 Higher's and predicted 3 A’s My UKCAT is 2600 Band 1 so I think that takes me up to 31 or 30 Would you have any knowledge about what percentage of applicants get a 6 or a 5 or a 4 for the non academic scoring as I am on the margins of the threshold
    I am a Scottish school leaver with a lot of extra curricular but don’t know how I will be scored

    Previous years, Edinburgh have said only around 10% of applicants should get full marks, beyond that, I don't know, I'm afraid

    I’ve applied to Edinburgh, heard they only send out offers in March however so it will be a long and nervous wait 😬
    Got 2950 (737.5 average) and Band 1
    Got 887 and 6A*s at GCSEs
    Predicted A*A*A*
    AAAA at AS level
    So I should get full marks for sjt, ukcat, academics but worried about personal statement cos even tho I’m happy with it, scoring feels like it could be really subjective so I don’t know how many points I’ll get, although I’m hoping for 4/6 so I should get 38/40, I’m a RUK student but hopefully that score might be enough 😬
