Hi, I recently did my UCAT and got 2570 with a band 1 in situational. I'm worried it is not a good score and not many unis will offer me a place with that and because I got a 6 in english language GCSE but the rest of my GCSE grades are fine. Is my score good enough to at least secure a place in one uni? and if so, which because the uni websites are so confusing.

My test is next week, and I would say that Plymouth and Birmingham are good for you. Plymouth have a low cut off score of 2400 whilst Birmingham doesn’t have a cut off score but a rating system, however that 6 in English could lower it depending on your other grades, if you volunteer/work ...etc. I would say avoid Manchester, they’re hella picky and try maybe looking at the Scottish universities, hope this helps!

Your UCAT score isn't bad. It's always best to wait until preliminary results are published by the UCAT consortium, and then again after testing ends for final deciles to get a rough idea of how you've performed against your peers. This will aid you when it comes to where to apply.

A 6 in English Literature meets the requirements of dental schools so that's fine too. Can I ask what your GCSE results were and what you're predicted for A Levels?

Also remember that some universities also look at the application holistically: personal statement, GCSE, A Levels predictions, UCAT etc. So these schools might be better options for you.
