Yes. You can apply with English, History and Art if you wanted to. But you'll need to take the UCAT though.

Hey! I'm hopefully starting med at Newcastle this year (2020 entry). There are quite a few other offer holders from SE England (Norfolk/Suffolk, London, Kent). I'd say there are more from the north, but there's still plently from the south so you shouldn't feel out of place if that's what you're wondering!

Cut offs for last year are on their website (682.5). Do you meet the Partners criteria? Cut offs are lower for this scheme, but I do not know what last year's was, but I would say a little higher than yours. The med school will usually let you know past cut offs if you contact them and then please post on here so others are aware

Reapplying to Newcastle from last year
A levels : A*AA (resitting from BBB)
Gcses : 88777666BB
Ucat - 805 band 1
Eligible for partners last year so I should be eligible this year, which means my offer would be unconditional

Not for last year, but was 632.5 for 2018 entry, 650 the year before. They will usually tell you if you call and ask, and then please post on here.
