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"

Thank you for this insight. I was actually considering Birmingham until I saw this.

Will do. It's so sad that Cardiff requires GAMSAT for post grads. Another I have to cross off.

I have moved your post to the Birmingham A100 Medicine applicants' thread. It's a far busier thread.

Depends on your UCAT score - they score 60% GCSE’s and 40% UCAT.

This is the response the University of Birmingham gave on 30 April 2019 to a Freedom of Information request entitled Reformed GCSE A100 grades.

The question was, "Seeing as the GCSE grades of the applicants for 2020 entry will be most, if not all
numerical grades, I would like to ask whether in the near future (2020 or 2021 entry),
a grade 9 may be ranked higher than a grade 8; although currently they are both
classified as A*, and whether during the initial assessment period, a candidate with
all grade 9s would be given priority over someone who achieved all grade 8s, for
example."


And the response given was, "The University has no plans to adjust its GCSE scoring system for medicine.
Therefore, it will continue to give the same recognition to GCSE grades 8 and 9.
Please note that entry requirements are reviewed on an annual basis."

Read this thread, post 40 explains it. Work out your score out of 24 and divide by 4.
