Does KCL offer biomedical science through clearing?Watch
More about King's College London
Question is in the title. I've got KCL biomed as my insurance offer but I want to go to KCL over my firm choice and was wondering if this would be possible (I'm unable to call KCL right now and ask as their lines are closed due to the pandemic). Thanks.
first of all, thank you for the reply! Are you sure this Is how it works, because I've read that if you reject your firm offer on results day you go into clearing and not to your insurance offer hence my question aha. This whole uni business is so confusing
You can go through clearing but one thing thing to bare in mind is that sometimes KCL actually increases their entry requirements in clearing than they were originally. Also, biomedical science has a common year at KCL so you could always apply for one course and transfer after year one
I feel like you totally ignored my question. Ive already applied for unis and have gotten an offer for biomed at kings, however I put them as my insurance and not as my firm. If I get the grades I expect I will definitely get into my firm offer but id prefer to go to KCL instead hence its not a case of me applying to another course and transferring etc. I'm just wondering whether it would be possible to go to kings over my firm aha
No I get what you meant lollll. I'm trying to say you would have to go through clearing and even then if you went through clearing it's not 100 percent certain you could get a place despite already getting an offer from them. I was also adding the fact even through clearing they sometimes increase the entry requirements. Sorry if my wording was a bit confusing but that's the point I was trying to make.
Oh okay aha. I just got confused when you said apply for a different course and transfer lol. Yeah I figured id most likely have to go through clearing, but I'd only do that if my grades were good. I don't mind going to my firm but I would prefer to go to KCL instead. I'll definitely meet the requirements for my firm since I got a lowered offer (CCC) so im not worried about that. Ill probably just have to wait til results day and call up KCL and see if they'd accept me. If I get a confirmation then id release myself into clearing and apply for KCL, and if I don't get the grades or they say they wouldn't be able to take me on I'll just leave everything as is and fo to my firm instead. Uni man, so many decisions and choices 😭
