Thanks for the response I was actually thinking of doing the American examinations since some unis accept SATs and APs for medicine. However, I’m already enrolled at a medical school in my country so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. I was wondering if it’s advisable to use the same personal statement I wrote last year for this year’s application?
Honestly I don't think there's much point in applying if you're already at medical school elsewhere. If you're studying in the EU or Switzerland then your degree would automatically be recognised by the GMC for practice in the UK. If you're studying outside the EU, you can apply to the GMC to have your degree recognised. Stay where you are now and then come to the UK once you qualify. It's a much better option than struggling through A Level retakes or attempting APs and the SAT.

Hi my names Maisie and I'm hoping to do Psych in Education at Uni, I'm predicted AAA.
I've put my UCAS statement in and have applied to York, Sussex, Keele, Southampton and Bristol. I think I'm going to firm York if I get an offer! So far I have an offer from Bristol.
At GCSE I got 8877666544
I do music and have 3x grade 8s, over 75hrs volunteering, choir/orchestras, Jack Petchy Award
when did you send off your application?

Is there a way to add more options in the "Additional Information" section in UCAS? Also, do I have to put my predicted A level grades and what my AS grades were?

Thanks in advance!
Ive heard that your teachers enter ur predicted grades for you, but im not sure about completed AS grades

Hello,
I am an International student (Non-EU) and I am applying for Computer Science in the UK for September 2021 intake for undergraduate. I sent off my UCAS application 2 weeks ago - still haven't heard back from any university. Is it because that I have applied early and they are waiting for more applications to come in? When can I expect to hear back from atleast one uni? Sorry, I know I am too impatient :P

I passed an ABRSM G6 exam in October 2018 with a score of 127/150. Should I declare it on UCAS? It has this option.
Definitely! When you get to grade 6 and above, your achieved grade translates to UCAS points

That’s honestly very true and it’s the most logical option, but I’m currently at a med school in my home country and I’ve always wanted to study abroad so I’d like to give it another shot :/
Plus (if I’m not mistaken) I think my chances of getting a FY1 position after uni will be higher if I graduate from a UK med school.
So if I do decide to reapply, could I use the same personal statement I used last year?

Hey,

I'm looking for some advice, I am applying for psychology in the 2021 series, but I feel my qualifications may be a huge problem, as I only do two A-Levels and a UAL extended diploma (equivalent to 3 A-Levels/ BTEC extended diploma), in which I am predicted a Merit.
In my two A-Levels, I am predicted an A and B.
(I am also eligible for a contextual offer)

I would be really grateful if somebody could give me guidance on this or recommend places I could apply to.

The NHS employs a lot of foreign doctors. As long as you have a medical degree, you'll find a job when you graduate whether you attended a medical school in the UK or abroad. If you're absolutely dead set on applying to medical school in the UK then there's no reason why you couldn't use the same personal statement you used before. I would maybe tweak it a little bit to explain why you're leaving your current medical school if you haven't touched upon that already.

I don't think your qualifications would hold you back in any way. You're studying for the equivalent of 5 A Levels. The UAL Extended Diploma alone would give you 120 UCAS points (BBB at A Level) if you achieved a Merit. Combined with AB grades in your A Levels, you should have a lot of options at your feet. Are there any particular universities or locations you're interested in?

I don't think you can add in more, but I'm pretty sure that section is just so UCAS can gather data on how well events to encourage young people into higher education are working (i.e. if a lot of people said they'd gone to a certain summer school and are now applying to uni, it would suggest that that summer school is a worthwhile program). If you've done extra stuff then great - mention it in your personal statement as examples of extra interest in your subject, and talk about what you've learnt from it.
