Hard to say as you would get no marks for GCSEs unless you have contextual points, but likely full marks for UCAT. This would have been just about enough in previous years, but depends on the cohort applying this year. If you like it, it is probably close enough to go for it if you have other safe choices

Do I stand a chance of getting an interview?
A-levels: ABB (resitting Bio and Maths)
GCSEs:9, 9, 7, 7 A*s,2 As
UCAT: 747.5 Band 3

Do personal statements hold any weight in the application process or is it only GCSEs and UCAT?

If you're a resit applicant and do succeed in getting an offer, will KCL have grade requirements of A*A*A instead of the standard offer A*AA? Only asking because I've heard they usually consider resit applicants as less competitive to a non-resit applicant.

Is it worth applying to Kings for medicine if I'm resitting and got BBC first time? My UCAT score is 707. And my predictions will be A*AA.

I don't know if my UCAT is competitive enough to apply... 2780 UCAT, band 2 (VR 740, DM 730, QR 700, AR 610).
Highest honours French baccalaureate (apparently A*AA, but A* in chemistry, bio and maths).
18 yo EU student with 1st biomed/law BSc (A- average GPA) from Canada.
I don't know anything about GCSEs, and KCL didn't mention them for French students when I emailed them?
What do you think?

I'm in the same position as you, it says that referees are recommended to include information about the student's circumstances but what if you don't have any? I know people that got in without any special circumstances.
Do you know what email I can contact KCL admissions with? I gave them a call but the guy on the phone sounded like he was bs'ing his way through my question.

Hi, DS wants to go to KCL. He has:
7 A*s, 2 As in GCSE
2600 UKCAT
Achieved A* in Maths, Predicted A* A* A*

Does he stand a chance of getting an interview, considering that he has averaged 650 in the UKCAT, which seems to be the borderline for Kings?
Many Thanks!

Hey guys,

I did my ucat a few days ago and got 3240 band 1.

I was wondering if this mean I have a good chance at interview, i think my personal statement is on the weaker side compared to others but will this make up for it? Also do kings look at gcses and a level predictions as well?

Does anyone know how they shortlist for interview?

Hi, my stats are:
GCSEs: 999999998A*
UCAT: 692.5 (2770) SJT Band 3
Predicted grades: A*A*A*A*

Do I have a chance? I'm worried that my SJT is too low.... The other option I'm considering is Southampton. Which one is safer?
