Hi. I thought I’d make this for anyone applying to Birmingham. Feel free to leave your GCSE Grades here alongside A-Level predictions, and UKCAT score.

I got 998 and 7 A stars at GCSE
AAA- A Levels Achieved
UKCAT- 3130 Band 1

What other unis are you guys applying to? I’m doing Leicster, Liverpool and Manchester
There is already a Birmingham thread for 2020

OH WOW!!!

I am in shock. Birmingham have finally caved and published all their admission stats!
It shows that the cut off last year (with the new 60-40 GCSE-UCAT split) was still 8.1

The latest contextual score looks surprisingly low at 5.5?

I have not looked at it this year, but in previous years it said chance of interview from a score of over about 7, despite the cut off having been 8.1 for the last 3 years, so it is safer to actually work out your score and judge from that

Graduates are not scored in the same way as school leavers for A100. You need to meet minimum requirements and then they assess on UCAT alone, cut off last year 2590. They also say:
"The personal statement must describe evidence of a high level of commitment to medicine (particularly through voluntary experiences) and strong personal qualities, evidenced by significant and substantial extracurricular involvement"
