I got an unconditional, and will be starting this September. I got a BSc Genetics 2.1, Distinction MSc Biotech and Management both from Glasgow, and 755 B1 Ukcat. Quote me or msg me if you need any advice.

Hey guys,

UCAT: 2610 // band 2
GCSE: 6A* 1A 1B 1C (A* in English Lang / maths)
A-levels predicted: 3A* (EPQ but no predicted grade)

Do I have a chance of getting an interview ?

Also do they make offers based purely on interview score or do they take UCAT into consideration?

This is on their website?
Pre-interview score is made up of A levels 60% and UCAT 40% and then this score is carried forward as 50% of post interview scoring.

Look at last years thread. You should be able to see there. I got 650 and got an interview (although didn’t get in so still have work to do).

Hey congratulations on your offer. I was just wondering if they asked for a Chemistry A level grade from you since on their website it is needed. I myself did biomed and want to apply but Dk if my biochemistry modules satisfy that requirement because on their website it states that “the requirement for Chem A levels may be satisfied by appropriate courses of study and achievement during first degree”

Hi,
I also haven’t received anything from them yet. My application was sent on Monday.
All other universities have contacted me apart from Aberdeen.
Hopefully, it will happen soon.

I wouldn't worry too much about confirmation emails, i received mine this morning but there are many applicants so the process can be a bit delayed.
