Brighton - but was for BSMS due to the subject/contents in the email
Yeah that's what I had thought from looking at their website, I can't believe they screwed us over that hard with section 2 though but at least since I'm contextual I'm pretty much "guaranteed" an interview (don't want to jinx it) seeing as they've all got interviews for the past 6 years with no cut off. RIP to my other BMAT choice though that's definitely gone now only got 3 choices to look forward to.

Thanks, hope it all goes well with yours too! Is it alright if I ask what else you've applied to and why? I only did BSMS in all honesty for the easy contextual offer.

Thank you!!

I've applied to Cardiff, Leeds & Lancaster. Applied to Cardiff due to a low UCAT score. Leeds & Lancaster were my other chances as well as BSMS as my UCAT score didn't really give me a chance. Hence, why I focused on BMAT unis. We'll see how this goes as BMAT was absolutely shambles....Did you apply anywhere else too?

I've applied to Imperial, BSMS, St George's, QMUL(for biomed which I already got an offer but will decline) and King's A101 (Med with an extra year for those that are widening participation). I managed to get a score of 2530 B3 which bummed me out but if I'm honest I barely did any work for it so the blames on me, I'm pretty much right above the 5th percentile and so hopefully I'll get an interview at St George's as the past 2 years the cut off was at the 5th percentile. They're all London choices except BSMS because unsurprisingly I'm from London :rolleyes:, BSMS is just there as the ultimate safe choice which is about a 2 hour journey from where I live right now (was thinking of Leeds but it's too far). How come you've picked unis so far apart?

Ohh I see. Good luck with those unis!! Tbf, you did well in your UCAT as compared to me lol. Tbh, I didn't think of the distance when I applied. I tried to apply strategically with academics and BMAT cut-off scores in the past. As my UCAT didn't go so well, I needed some wiggle room for BMAT. Although, it's been difficult this year as we've all been put in the dark due to our BMAT scores.

The same with you , just wondering are you applying for the first time or is this your second time? I understand your BMAT/UCAT since I'm also in the same situation although definitely not the worst (I know someone in my school who scored 2200 so not sure what they ended up doing and I know for certain they hadn't taken the BMAT but they were early entry so maybe foundations). My GCSE's aren't anything great so I picked these unis as they were entrance exams focused but I doubt I can withstand living 5 years in a city I don't like at all despite trying to be strategic. I'm just wondering if my BMAT was enough for Imperial but highly doubt it, also surprisingly there's such little activity for BSMS.

Thank you! This is my first time, straight from high school! I don't mind the environment tbh. Does Imperial have an OK BMAT cut-off score? If so, you may just get by, you never know! Yea, it may be that many people don't know about TSR, who knows.

I reckon it's because people aren't taking the risk with the BMAT this year as it could only be sat after applying to Uni. I'm similar to you by the way, really really want King's EMDP. I avoided St Georges because i don't think my UCAT will be enough (slightly higher than yours - sorry).

Not sure how they score it overall but for sections 1 and 2 the usual score you'd need to get is around a 5 which is higher than average but not too high, just gonna have to end up seeing whether they offer or not.

I see where you're coming from and no need to apologise! If anything you not applying makes it easier for me as there'll be one less, I'm pretty confident with the amount of research I've done about the cut off but as always it could end up changing any year. You would think that because there are more applicants each year from 2017 that the cut off would be higher which was the case for 2018 at St George's but after that it's been the lowest it's ever been for St George's in 2019 and 2020 entry despite the increase in med applicants (although I'm personally not certain what the cohort was for those years), I'm just praying that they keep it at the 5th decile this time around. If I could get that EMDP from King's though that would be heaven, it is alright if I can know what you managed to get for the UCAT?

If you're settled status it'll still be home fees.

EU nationals who are ‘settled’ or ‘pre-settled’ in the UK will remain eligible for home tuition fees providing they meet residency requirements.

Hi , thank you for replying promptly. Does this apply for courses beginning in year 2021 ? this is where I am confused. it says that courses after autumn 2021 fees maybe different.

Guys I have sent my contextual offer evidence to [email protected] but I haven't received a confirmation my contextual data was received. Should I be worried?
