    Hey!

    I haven't seen any thread for the University of Leicester foundation medicine course for 2019 entry so thought I'd start one.

    I have applied for this course and my stats are as follows:

    GCSE: (equivalent to) 7A* 2A
    A2 predicted: BBB
    UKCAT: 2550 (637.5)
    SJT Band: 2
    Interview?: Received

    Feel free to post your stats everyone and any other relevant info/questions and best of luck to everyone who has applied!

    They sent me an eligibility form few days back. It was just ticking the criterias that make you eligible and it asked for proof for some of the criterias.

    Did you remember now what I am talking about? Or did you not receive it?

    Hi
    Not sure on how points calculated it's my daughter who has applied she is on gap year earning some needed money towards her studies.
    She said she had an average ukcat, great Gcse, A level ABB. Not sure what that comes to

    Ahh okay.
    It's actually calculated using the GCSEs and UKCAT score combined. There's a total of 64 points maximum. Don't know for sure but I believe your daughter's should come to 50+.
    Good luck to your daughter!

    Wow! she has a really high chance for an interview! Almost certain
    I’ve got 56.5. Hopefully it’s above the cut off

    Good luck to you, I'm hoping she gets an interview and gets an offer, I'm just like most parents. We see just how much effort you guys put into it. Not sure of how many people apply and how many they then intend to interview but lots of people must have applied, following their dreams.

    aw thankss!

    Don't know if this is reliable but I read somewhere that last year 96 applicants were invited to interview and 40+ (in the 40s) number of people got offers. Not sure how many applied in total. Bearing in mind that last year only 25 places were available, but this year it is 35, so those numbers are likely to increase.

    Where else has your daughter applied?
