hii everyone! I am planning to apply for GEM at Warwick in 2022 for 2023 entry (I'm doing Optometry atm), but having issues with work experience as I've only got 20 hours so far - does anyone know if Warwick care when the work experience was? Like if I complete the 70hours just a few weeks before my application is that fine? Or do they prefer if it was like evenly spread out over the last 3/4 years? Because of COVID most places aren't accepting Thank youuu
Keep checking the application element of the WMS MBChB website but you can usually have work experience that tracks right up to the day of submission. It would normally have to be within 3 years of the day of submission but they may well change things again due to Covid, e.g., 4 year window. Unlikely that they would ask for you to have it spread out.

They absolutely do not care if it was a few weeks before application or if it was 3-4 months before. As long as it was 3-4 years before application. So for 2023 entry it would have to be from 15th of October 2020 to the 15th of October 2023. Hope that helps!

I’d anyone else worried about the potential increase for the UCAT cut off this year? I’m taking my test soon and it’s terrifying!

Yes- but I’m hoping this year there’s not going to be an increase because every year has been pretty much the same except for the 2020 cycle because I think people were taking their test at home so getting better results? If you look at the UCAT statistics the average mark increased for 2020 but for the other years it was similar. I am worried but I don’t think the jump will be too high this year I think anything above 2720 (last years cut off) should be fine!

People who sat their test at home actually did slightly worse than those who sat it is a Test Centre

That’s interesting where did it say that?

My only theory now then is that UCAT averages may increase because people are better prepared each year and there are more resources from people to revise from. So now I’m scared the decile scores will increase again this year

hi all, was wondering if anyone could help. I'm currently in a full time (37.5hrs per week) patient facing job within the NHS as a Cardiac Physiologist and I see patients for routine appointments as well as in acute situations like a heart attack, cardiac arrest etc. Warwick say they want 2 relevant experiences, I graduated from uni in 2018 and have some experience of shadowing doctors in clinics from then as part of my course. would this be suitable or would I need another work experience for it to count? or and this is a very long shot, would warwick be happy that I am a full time allied health professional and accept the range of experiences from my job role as sufficient?

They accept shadowing as acceptable work experience. You need 70 hrs total, coming from at least 2 different positions. Your full-time employment will be counted up to 50 hrs and then shadowing will count for the rest. You'll just need to be sure that you shadowed at least 20 hrs.

Your job on its own won’t count, you’ll have to have done another experience outside of the job. I would recommend doing shadowing as it’s easy to get. You can always email admissions and check, but their website does clearly say 2 different experiences.

Hi guys I am looking for some advice.

I got an overall score of 2880 in my UCAT, but only
570 in VR. I am starting to feel like this is too low to apply to Warwick as they base off cohort average not national average. Does anyone have any advice? Anything appreciated.

I think you have summed it up well yourself. Incredibly risky to apply with that 570, which is a massive shame because the 2880 is more than enough otherwise.

Looks like I will have to reapply next year then as unfortunately I do not have A-levels so most UCAT universities won’t accept me.

Firstly, congrats on your score! Secondly, are you sure they base it off the average of the cohort applying to Warwick, and not the national mean? I understood "Our first round of selection therefore identifies those with a verbal reasoning score at or above the national mean for the cohort sitting UCAT in the year of application" to mean the national average?

Can someone clarify how Warwick select applicants for interview? I know they take academic achievement and UCAT & VR into consideration but I'm wondering how they weigh these two things? I'm concerned as I got 3110 UCAT (740 VR) but only a 2.1 in my degree? Also, I know they're not an eligibility requirement but do they score A Levels?

If you have 70 hours of appropriate work experience, then with those stats you will get an iv. I do not believe they publish how things are weighted exactly, but with the WE in the bag you will be ok to get to the iv stage @ the very least. They won't score a-levels.
