I am, took my ukcat last week and doing BMAT in August. Applying to Leeds and Newcastle (A100 & A101).
I'm a Mature Applicant, so only looking at the northern unis I meet the criteria for due to family considerations.

I was initially considering Warwick but my verbal reasoning score was low -570 , hence why I’m considering the undergraduate programme.

Hey I've just graduated with a 2:1 in Biomedical sciences and am thinking of applying to Leeds! I called up admissions and they said last year only 18 graduates got places, do you think that this should discourage graduates from applying to Leeds or did you find entering as a graduate put you at an advantage over school-leavers? Also would you say that you scored a high BMAT score to get in? Thank you!
I've loved my time there - I would say do not be discouraged as Leeds don't have a maximum number of places for graduates - in my cohort there were over 25 of us plus loads of mature students! I found I had a lot of advantages over school leavers in interviews because I had more insight (from being a HCA, volunteering, living abroad etc.) and life experience but also when we started I already had clinical experience and having studied before makes the transition a lot easier.

I didn't do the BMAT - I was a UKCAT entry and my score was slightly less than average for my cohort.
