The FOI on scores is out. Internationals be careful - the Scottish Funding Council document implies no international spaces at St Andrew's this year.

The first column must have been the year with only 3 sections scored - it was when they introduced the DM paper and the score for the new paper was not used as part of the official score.

Hopefully, you've realised that St Andrews is only a 3-year course - you then complete the rest at a different uni. This can be either in Scotland or England see https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/subject...urse-pathways/
So if you are currently in England, you are a RUK student, and you will be choosing either the Scottish route (ie to complete your training at a Scottish uni) or the England route (to complete it in Manchester ot Barts) or no preference.

Does anyone how much of emphasis that st Andrews put on academics and other parts of your application outisde of ucat scores.
On their website they say ' To be considered for interview, applicants must have: a strong academic record, a positive reference, relevant, medically related work experience.' How strict are they with this? As I have 3A* prediction + A epq achieved, 8A* 2A 1B GCSE I also would say my ps fulfills all the points they mention here https://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/subject...-requirements/ as well as a ucat of 2660 (im a RUK applicant). How are my odds of an interview?

Yes, you should get an interview provided your PS shows you have explored the career enough.

Hi,

I’m a EU applicant. I am predicted 38 with 666 HL (IB).
I got 675 B1 from my UCAT and I have some relevant clinical experience. Do I stand a chance for an interview?

Yes. You can e-mail to check you meet academic requirements, but you should be fine.

I'd say go for it. Universities take into consideration lots of different aspects of your application, and whilst the UCAT is important, it's not the be all and end all. If you've got backups incase you get rejected then, just do it.

No, St Andrews shortlists using UCAT scores. Previous cut-offs posted in this thread.

Do not give advice if you don't know what you are talking about. Anybody applying with a low UCAT will be rejected whatever the rest of their application is like. It IS the be all and end all for St Andrews once you meet the GCSE, A level and PS requirements.

I was trying to be positive. I do know what I'm talking about, thank you. They didn't say how low their UCAT score actually was, for some people, a low score for some is high for others. Don't just assume i'm clueless.

Apparently clueless about how St Andrews select. Your post says “universities take into consideration lots of different aspects of your application”, St Andrews checks you meet minimum requirements and then rank using UCAT. A low score cannot be compensated for, even with stellar academic results. The sensible thing to do would be to direct OP towards the past admission stats which are posted earlier on the thread (or re-post them, given you are on top of the admission process!
Positivity is great, but being inaccurate and unrealistic helps nobody
