So results day is in a few days and i'm absolutely bricking it. Let's say I get AAA (or higher), so my grades are fine for most medicine unis. However, when I did my UKCAT back in 2018 I messed up and ended up with 610 average and 2440 total, which is below the cutoff for most medical schools' entry requirements. I've already emailed SGUL about it and they said they'd be unlikely to consider me if I don't meet that minimum requirement for their total cut off. I was wondering if anyone knows any unis that maybe would consider a lower UKCAT if my grades are okay? My other plan was to take a gap year as I am currently preparing to retake my UKCAT on the 27th of August anyway and then apply for 2020 entry which I think may be a safer bet, but I thought not harm in trying clearing anyway!
Thanks for all your help

Keele are in clearing and provided you are not in the bottom 20% (you are not) they do not use this as part of their selection process. They do usually ask for A*AA though, but have been known to accept lower. Sunderland use the same selection criteria.
You also make Plymouth's cut off, though I do not know if they will be in clearing.
Leicester also guarantee an interview to people with achieved AAA if you meet their other requirements and are in the top 70% in UKCAT (I think you are).
Other than that, you are probably looking at redoing your UCAT and reapplying, but with achieved A levels, you will have more options open to you

Hence, OP, you should follow the Clearing thread and post in there for any future queries!

(It will be updated as soon as I get any information from our lovely posters)
