Theres no cut offs for UCAT scores, they'll just rank you by your UCAT score and a few will be invited to the interview - that's if you meet the main academic entry requirements but if your SJT is Band 4 you wont be considered for interview any more (2019 onwards).
Are you sure about this? I emailed them and they said something else

Yeah there's no imposed cut off, so they're not saying 'you need at least 650', e.g. but in reality their cut off was around 610, 615 ish over the past couple of years

Could anyone who has a place on the medicine course this year please share your story? I'm looking to apply to ARU this September but my predicted grades are AAB and I'm worried about the MMI interviews as I've heard ARU has a lot more stations than other universities. Thank you

No A level requirements, I don't think
Five GCSEs grades A-C including Maths, Eng Lang and two science subjects.

With so many deferred students, will it be extra competitive to get a place for new applicants in 2021?

Maybe, but EU students having to pay international fees will make things easier for home / UK / Irish students.

Hi does anyone know the lowest possible UCAT score Anglia Ruskin has accepted? I unfortunately got 2390 and band 3 due to my failure in VR despite getting above 600 in every other section. Thanks in advance!

Hi so I got 2390 and Band 3 on UCAT. I got above 600 in all sections apart from VR which was very disappointing. I’m thinking of applying to the ARU widening medicine for grades ABB, which I am eligible for. But I don’t know if my average UCAT is even good enough to consider applying to? I know Keele doesn’t focus on UCAT so I’m debating whether to switch them out. But someone please tell me if it’s likely I would be accepted into ARU with this UCAT score?

There is no point posting this question in lots of different places. This is the type of thing you need to research for yourself and probably contact ARU about, as advised
A simple google search has found
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...coming-1401610

This suggests WAMS applicants had the same cut off score in 2018 as non-WAMS and it was actually higher in 2019.
You can speak to ARU and/or put in an FOI for 2020's info (though you are short on time for them to respond now). I have always found them to be pretty open, so I supsect they will tell you if you ask. Then please post it on here so others can see the answer

Sorry I have done A LOT of research but this in a way, asking for help on TSR and getting a broad range of answers from people whom were in the same situation or is in the same situation as me is research in a way itself. But thanks for the link.
