It really depends on your GCSEs. If you have good GCSEs (mostly 8s and 9s) then around 670 average will be enough, if your GCSEs are average or on the lower end then you're definitely looking at over 700 average

The average is 700/ 700 and something. But remember this is the average. Anything above 650 is considered good to them

Hi, I wanted to know if the medicine course at kings is 5 years or 6 years as on the website it says the course is 6 years with a mandatory intercalated year. However from several blog posts and social media I've heard that its a 5 year course. Can someone confirm what is true?

If faced with an official uni website or some rando on social media, I always choose to believe the social media personally.

Is this sarcasm?

Okay so it is a 5 year course then, with intercalation being optional?

I go to kings, Ive heard rumours from medics who said that most people are on the 5 year but they were thinking of introducing mandatory intercalation year so the 6 year course may be new this year. I would suggest looking on UCAS as that’s the most up to date

The intercalated year is compulsory unless you're a grad entering the A100 course, so in total if you're a normal undergrad the course would be 6 years including the intercalated year for the normal A100 Medicine.

Yes, I asked a student via unibuddy on KCL's website, she said that they recently changed the course so it is now 6 years with a mandatory iBSC. It used to be 5 years previously.

yeah some med student told me the intercalated year was previously "opt out" if you had a medical condition or couldnt do it for a serious reason

Hi guys, does King's college London put a heavy emphasis on the UKCAT more than A-level grades? Because I'm getting low UCAT scores :-(

Kings shortlist using 40% GCSEs, 50% UCAT and 10% contextual. They do not use A levels except as a minimum requirement

Only as a minimum requirement, ie you must be predicted A*AA but anything better that this does not improve your chances
