Oh really? I called them and they said the highest number (9) is an A* and 8 is an A. I’ll call them up again and confirm. But thanks
definitely 8 is A*

Top 8 GCSE’s = 3A*’s & 5A’s
UCAT = 655 (8th decile)
SJT = Band 1
& I qualify for contextual points

Would I be right in saying I would score 84.25/100??

Band one is 20 points I believe and your interview consists of 5 sections which are each worth 20 points (so total 120 points).
Band 1 is useful since almost all applicants interviewed who had band 1 got an offer in 2018.
See this :

Band 2 is good too but I wouldn’t recommend applying with a band 3.

According to the alleged point system of A*=3.75 etc. yes but I’m not sure how accurate this is since HYMS haven’t confirmed it

I assumed band 1 would be worth slightly more points if 90% with it got offers. The website says 100 points for 5 sections plus Band score

“Your scores from the five separate components of the interview process are collated in addition to points allocated depending on the UCAT SJT Band achieved, up to a maximum of 20 points. “

That’s what the website says and the interview scores are definitely a total of 100 on their own since there’s 5 sections worth 20 points each.

Then it says interview scores are combined with SJT score which is out of a maximum of 20 points. That’s what I understand from the information above but do tell me if I’m wrong.

I think tht means the 5 stations are 20 alongside points from sJT but I’m not completely sure

According to the point system suggested in previous threads you’d have 69 points.

GCSE- 27 (A* = 3.75 and A= 3)
UCAT- 12 (600 was 3rd decile last year) + 15 for band 1
Contextual points- 15

Remember HYMS said they don’t release their scoring system so I’m not sure how accurate this is.

Hi,

Anyone know what the accommodation situation is like at the Hull campus?

Do all medical students tends to be in the same halls, or spread out about campus?

So you don't meet all the requirements.

Is there any chance of overlooking this?
No, the minimum entry requirements are just that, the minimum. There will be plenty of other candidates who score higher than required who do Biology.

Apply elsewhere.

I mean you have 69 points which is pretty good. I think last years cut off for points was 54.5.

Hi guys,

Just wondering if it’s worth me applying to HYMS. I have a 1st class in diagnostic Radiography, alevel BBB, GCSE 5A* 4A +A* short course, ucat 2560 and band 1. No contextual points. Would this be enough to get an interview? Thanks in advance!
