I think you would be wise to contact admissions directly and ask as I'm not sure anyone on here will have enough experience of your particular circumstances to enable them to give you accurate advice.

I’m only taking 3 Alevels Which I hope to get an A in but I don’t have an AS grade, would I take my chemistry a level and do an As level next would this qualify ?

I’m not sure if I’ve understood your question properly but the AS would have to be in a 4th subject.

If you don’t have the fourth AS you can still get an offer and it would be A*AA

I score 30 points for GCSE *UCAT score
2020 cut off was 30 as per their website
This year they have re calibrated A*
Is the cut off likely to go down ?
Is it too risky to apply there ?

Please don't create a new thread (especially with the same title as this one!), but post in the existing one instead. I spotted you did the same for Leeds - it's now in the Leeds A100 2021 thread.

If you can't find the med school you wanted to ask, here's an index: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6410398

AAA a level prediction but A in EPQ so that means AAA required doesnt it?
What score do I need to aim for in their new GCSE scoring system to get an interview?

Thank you

You would be pretty much guaranteed an interview as you only drop a couple of points for UCAT.

Is 25 points in the GCSE section enough or do they need more. I also have 4 points from UCAT and my a level requirements would be AAA as I have an A in EPQ

I'd check with QUB directly to make sure they accept the BTEC as they do state they need A Level Chemistry even for Graduate applicants. Better to check they are happy.

Hello!
I was wondering whether anyone knows whether I'd have a high chance of receiving an interview for A100 2021 entry?
I'm a school leaver having received 4 post-interview rejections last year, I achieved A*AA in my A level grades this year.
My GCSEs are: A*A*A*A*A*88876
UCAT Score: 2620 (Band 1)
