My current stats are



A levels: BBC (resitting the C subject with predicted A + A in an new additional subject)

GCSE: 9,8,8,A*,A, A, A, A, B, C

UCAT : 620 Band 2



I'm unsure if my UCAT will be enough to get an interview. Any answers would be greatly appreciated! In addition, Im aware that on the website it says A levels must be done in a 2 year period with BBB or ABC achieved. However, as I'm taking a whole A level in one year and only resitting one of my subjects(the C), would that make a difference? i.e is it possible to get an offer comprised of BB + an additional A from the new subject.

Roughly how much do they weigh each component GCSEs/UCAT etc for interview? And how many applicants do they get/how many interviews/ how many do they take?

It depends if there was outstanding circumstances that caused you to resit?

They said they don’t have one, but UCAT is part of their ranking to assess who to interview

Hey, I did my a-levels last year and got ABC and i’m applying for 2020 entry. I’m resitting Chem and Bio (B and C grades) just so I have something to do this year and i’m applying with my original grades for the foundation year. I spoke to Admissions and they said i’d be alright to apply as I got ABC first time around but they dont accept resits if you didnt achieve ABC or BBB. Hope this helps

Hiya, as far as i’m aware UEA use the SJT score in combination with the interview score to decide on who gets an offer. I think I read something on their website before saying that It would be unusual for someone with a band 4 to get an interview but i’m not sure. It’d probably be best to call admissions and ask! I’ve asked them no end of questions and they’re always really friendly and helpful! Hope this helps!

Nope, not yet! I’m hoping to hear from them soon though, although it might still be a while until that happens.

Heya! My friend has received an interview for the A100 course and I think the interviews for A104 may be put out later (I'm only guessing though). I wouldn't worry too much though!
