Does QMUL calculate tariff based on top 3 a levels? I did 4 a levels and achieved A*A*A*A (A in chem), so I'm wondering if they'd consider all 4, top 3 or bio, chem and another subject. Thanks
They consider any qualification that has tariff points, so all A levels, AS levels not taken on to full A level, EPQ, music and drama exams, BTECs, etc etc

Thank you very much, do you think there's any point in me applying because I'm pretty sure they use SJT post interview?

They do, but only for about 5% of marks, so unlikely to make a massive difference

Very likely! But they may have managed to palm all their over-offered applicants off elsewhere. Personally, I suspect a lot of them will have decided to defer and take the money, instead!

Thank you,

The tariff system is still a little confusing to me, so with my predicted grades I would get a tariff of 152 but is there any way of increasing that to above 200.
Other tariffable qualificiations!
An EPQ, AS level, 4th A level, music, drama or dance qualifications, the list is (almost) endless

Hello everyone,

Apologies if this has already been asked here. Can I apply to both graduate entry and traditional entry in the same year? I have emailed Barts several times but they never replied.
Yes you can

hi guys just a quick question, I'm really unusual because as well as my predicted a-levels I also have 5 achieved higher grades on the Scottish system since I moved countries.
I'm guessing that this is very unusual but do you think I can get scored for my highers and my predicted a levels? They are two different exam systems but I was unsure and it does ofc make a huge difference to my tariff score since I achieved straight A's at Higher.
Or should I just call up Barts and ask?
Thanks for any help!

You get points for all tariffable qualifications, I believe, so your score will be off the charts

Hello GANFYD and other senior members

I saw the information from Freedom of information dated 13th sept 2021 where QMUL Admission team has mentioned that they prefer applicants only with SJT Band 1 and Band 2?
I checked QMUL website and it says that applicants will be selected for interview based on UCAT Score /UCAS Tariff -50:50

Kind regards
Jaffar

They use SJT post interview, but for 4 points only I think.

Hi, please can someone advice if there is any scoring system used for ucas and ucat points? All I understand is 50:50 split between the two - but what is the minimum ucas tariff needed and what is the ucat point needed ? Any thoughts? Thanks

Would imagine that you’d be fine. You’d lose a couple of points post interview for the B2 but very unlikely to be a dealbreaker
