How do you contact kings admin team via email before you’ve applied there, I’ve searched thorough their entire website but can’t seem to find it
theyre social media is handy. That is what I used when I applied first! Try that!

I couldn't find a thread for KCL 2021 applicants, so here goes.

1. What A-levels are you taking and what grades are you hoping for?
2. What subject(s) are you applying to at KCL?
3. What were your GCSE grades?
4. Why KCL?
5. Which other unis are you applying to?
6. Have you gone to any of the (virtual?) open days for KCL?

Edit: this thread by StrawberryDreams has links to all the other university applicant threads:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6630884
1. Biology , Chemistry , Photography (and EPQ, not an A Level but hey) . Predictions looking to be AAA and A in EPQ by the end of the week :3 ((hopefully, my bio and EPQ teachers hate me teehee))
2.Biomedical Sciences
3.A*9888877776
4.Few Reasons. I originally overlooked King’s for really stupid reasons (and actually overlooked Biomedical as a course as well lol) but after doing some research the course structure is honestly perfect for my indecisive self - everyone does the same modules in first year so if I decided any of the other Biomedical / Biochemical Sciences suited me better I could switch in 2nd year woo!. Also , London has always attracted me as a place to study and KCL became a standout to me in terms of the overall atmosphere.
5. UCL, Bristol, Manchester and unsure about my 5th might be Cardiff of SGUL.
6.Went to Life Sciences, Language Dept, some Q+As and PS help session.

good luck everyone!!

1. History (A), English Lit (A), Politics (A*)
2. Politics, Philosophy and Law
3. 998877655 (Extenuating circumstances)
4. Really like the PPL course.
5. Cambridge, Glasgow, Durham, Lancaster
6. No, are they any good?

Has anybody who's applied received an acknowledgement yet? I sent off my application on the 6th but yet to be sent login details for Kings apply. Maybe they wait until they receive LNAT results (for Law courses)?

Don’t worry, it took ages for me to receive my acknowledgment from King’s! I even emailed one of the admissions tutors and he said to wait it out and then I finally got my King’s Apply details about 3-4 weeks after I applied.

Omds thats crazy ahahaha
I spoke to the head of admissions for biomed at UCL and they said they were going to be more leninent this year because of covid, as apparently some countriesdont actually allow students to do all the sciences and maths . I’m not sure how true that is and we there they’ll actually stick to it but tbh I’m
More set on KCL than UCL. My chemistry teacher wrote in my reference about how I do in maths so idk , that’s all I can use really.

Yep - I sent mine in a few days ago and got it on the next day. I'm not applying for law though - Biomedical Engineering! Maybe some departments are faster than others?
