University of Nottingham Medicine (A100) 2020 entry Watch
It almost certainly will do, but some places actually do things like increase GCSEs scores (Kings do this) by a multiplier for WP applicants, so actually the cut off is the same
I attended the summer school and they seemed a little disoriented in terms of the WP flag. When I asked the lead had basically forgotten about WP flags. I will send an email and enquire and then follow up on this thread with my result! Thank you.
That will obviously change when the terms have all started
Pretty gutted. 😥Nottingham my first choice and now not an option. The way they score UCAT means that even with decent UCAT (757 -SJT2) I only score 48 as I also lose point for GCSE’s, and for 2019 entry the cut off for non contextual was 50. Back to the drawing board with regard choices. Currently looking at Newcastle, Bristol and either Cambridge or Exeter. Plan to check out Sheffield, Liverpool and possibly Manchester now. Soooooooo disappointed.....
Would be really interested to hear whether any non-contextual applicants who successful gaining interview this round (for entry 2019) with score of less than 50/56? Really confused as seeing lots of folk with scores of 45-48 here who have been successful (some identify as non-contextual applicants) yet FOI shows cut off for 2018 was 52 and for 2019 cut off was 50. Nottingham was my first choice for 2020 entry, totally loved the place and people I met on Open Day, but I only score 48/56 as I lose a point for GCSE's, 2 points for only having SJT2 and although average UCAT score is 757 the way the bandings work for different sections just don't optimise my score. So gutted!
I don’t think so. I’ve been over this thread and it seems the 45-49 scores were Pathway applicants etc. The posters who received interviews seemed to be getting 50/51 scores etc. The SJT2 cost me dearly. But tbh, even if I’d scored a band 1 I’d still only have just met last years threshold. Just can’t afford the risk when I can apply to UCAT heavy uni’s with greater certainty and places which credit A* predictions such as Cambridge and Exeter. Sad though still 😥
