HELP! Where can I apply?Watch
I took my UCAT yesterday and I'm fairly disappointed with my result, I completely mucked up the timing in the exam so I achieved:
Total: 2500 (625 average)
Band 1 Situational Judgement
My shortlist of universities prior to this was:
Apparently my score is below the cut off for Newcastle, so I have to cross that off my list and I'm pretty sure my UCAT is too low for Caridff and Barts so I'm really at a loss here, I dont't know what to do!
I've noticed that some med schools have a point based system so I'm in the process of calculating my points and looking at FOI inquests, because at least my UCAT would somewhat count that way, combined with my GCSEs. I have a preference for dentistry but I love human biology and honestly would be very happy to study medicine next year, since I don't really want to take another year out to take the UCAT again.
I've got 2 weeks of work experience in 2 separate dental practices from last year, but I'm aware that this year year they expect you to have done something over the summer, so I'm very open to doing an online work experience course before I apply.
And lastly I dont have any preferences as to where I go tbh!
I'd really appreciate anyones suggestions on where I can apply!
I would suggest that they pick one and stick to it, medicine is not the backup of dentistry and vice versa.
I think OP has already posted in the the "Which medical school should I apply to" megathread.
I wouls suggest that they pick one and stick to it, medicine is not the backup of dentistry and vice versa.
Agree with the rest.
