Hi I just did my UCAT exam and I got Verbal reasoning 530Decision Making 550Quantitative reasoning 640Abstract reasoning 580. An overall score of 2300 but I got a Situational band 1. So I was wondering which unis I should apply that have an emphasis on situational judgment 1 but a lowish Ucat score with my GCSE's being 7 A's and 6B's and predicted A-Level grades A*AA

look at the ones that take a more holistic approach so Manchester, Liverpool, Plymouth and I think kings don't have a ucat cut off but remember is competitive xx

Then you must have WA or contextual flags as Liverpool publish their UCAT cut offs as 605 (2019 entry), 615 (last year), 640 and 625.

Unfortunately, unless you have WA flags, the only UCAT unis you are likely to be considered at are Keele and Sunderland, who both use their version of the PS to assess applicants, just using UCAT to rule out the bottom 20% of scores.

Otherwise, your combined stats are highly unlikely to be successful at any other med school

However, many people do better on UCAT second time around, so if you are motivated, get your grades this year, resit UCAT next year and apply with achieved grades (which opens more options) and hopefully a better UCAT
