My ucat wasn’t too great. Did you already get called for an interview? Or did you complete a summer school or something to get a guaranteed interview? Good luck! I wish you all the best !
No-one will get an actual interview invitation until UCAT scores are sent to Universities in November.
Bristol Scholars is a very selective, local, WP initiative at Bristol.

I completed a summer school, the programme is called "Insight into bristol" and for medicine you get a guaranteed interview so they'll just flag my application for an interview

Hey returnmigrant you seem to be pretty knowledgeable about gateway to med for Bristol. I was wondering, when you said they only focus on the ucat does this include the SJT?

Bristol doesnt look at SJT for either the 5-year or the Gateway course.

This will be the first year that Gateway to Medicine at Bristol will be assessed in exactly the same way as the 5-year A100 course - ie. not reading PS and ranking for interview only on UCAT. Therefore there is no 'previous' year to go on.

Realistically, fewer people are in the mix for Gateway (because its a widening participation course with exact criteria) far fewer people are eligible to apply, and since they will all come from low-performing schools, its likely that the required UCAT score will be lower than for the 5-year course.

There is more info on admissions for the Gateway program in the Admissions Statement (look for the link at the very bottom of the relevant course page on the website - http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...y-to-medicine/).

Its combined with the Gateway to Dentistry and Gateway to Vet courses and there are approx 35 places altogether, usually with about 20 for Medics.

Hey All,

I'm looking to apply to Bristol to study medicine with a foundation year.

According to this link- https://www.ucat.ac.uk/media/1297/us...ult-160818.pdf
They place a 20% weighting on the UCAT, is this still case true for 2020 entry?

Also, does this mean if I did bad on my UCAT, my personal statement could make up for it?

Finally, does anyone know how many places are on this course?

I'm sorry if this is quite a lot but I have so many questions, its eating me alive lol.
Thanks for any help

Therefore there is no 'previous' year to go on and so the 'pass' UCAT score for Gateway this year is totally unknown.
