Those stats are good and should be easily enough to get you an interview, 760 UKCAT is amazing, well done.
Here’s a link to the entry requirements
https://www.plymouth.ac.uk/courses/u...lor-of-surgery
Gives you GCSE, A level requirements and past UKCAT cut off for interviews

Does anyone know if I’m predicted AAA I can get an AAB offer or is that rare?

For UK students the offer for medicine A100 will be AAA unless your part of a widening participation programme

They have on their page that they can offer A*AA or AAA- what would be the deciding factor in how they choose which offer to give?

Hey guys, some context:
Predicted: AAA
GCSE: 2 9's, 5 8's, 2 A's
UCAT: 2390 band 1

So I've just met the cutoff score for plymouth. Am i likely to get an interview because I would be at the very bottom. Thanks

Do you know what they look at in their admissions process? Are they big on personal statement or do they rank your UCAT? I tried researching into this myself but it seems quite ambiguous.

im not too sure but my friend who got 2320 for the UCAT also got an interview, so im assuming UCAT isnt as important considering their cut off has consistently been low. id put it as a safe 4th option when applying. Hope that helps

Anyone have any experience of getting in to Plymouth with resits?
My son has BBB in his A-levels (Physics and Biology very close to A grade boundary), so he is resitting them all and adding an EPQ.
His UCAT score is 2730. Is he likely to be considered?

I emailed them a couple of days ago.
A*AA will only be given to international students, and everyone who met the minimum entry requirements last year got an interview, so I'd say you have a good chance

Anyone who meets the min entry requirements has a very good chance of interview - everyone got one last year
