G'day everyone

Does anyone have a list of universities that doesn't consider Chemistry as a requirement for overseas students? I am from Sydney, Australia and I've shortlisted Bristol, Sheffield & Liverpool but struggling to find 2 more for UCAS. My HSC subjects are Chem, Math, Eng & Latin. I am not keen to sit for BMAT and my UCAT score is 3210.

Thanks

You can only apply to 4 med schools anyway.

Hey! I'm an international applicant for medicine and I'm really struggling to decide where I should apply, any help would be greatly appreciated.

IGCSEs and AS grades were teacher assessed grades, not sure if that makes a difference

IGCSES: A*s for all my 7 IGCSES (Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, FLE, IT, Urdu)

AS:
Biology: A
Chemistry: A
Physics: A
Maths: A

A Levels: Haven't received predictions yet but I expect them to be A*A*A*A* (taking maths too at A levels)

UCAT: 2650 band 2

Not the best but it is what it is

VR: 700
DM: 690
QR: 660
AR: 600
SJT: Band 2

Work Experience:

Volunteer for the national COVID vaccination drive, around 110 hours.
HR intern at a local hospital
Editor for an mental health org

Research/Preference:

My preference is, honestly, any university where I have a reasonable chance of getting an offer and unis which have a relatively sizeable amount of intl seats. All my info on UCAT cut off comes from Medify and the table attached to the megathread on applying, but I've been told UCAT cut-offs for intl applicants is usually higher so I'm really confused as to what information I should be looking at,

I have considered:

Plymouth: Has a cut off of around 2400

Birmingham: I was told, using their online offer tool, that I would be likely to get an interview? But I realise, perhaps, that is for local students. Not sure.

Cardiff: But they require 9 IGCSEs, I don't have that many-

Liverpool: Their cutoff seems to be within my range

UEA: The average UCAT cut off for intl students was 2,596 in 2020 according to a FOI I read online.

Leicester: Seems nice enough, but I don't understand the scoring. My UCAT would be 26.5/32 but I don't have 8 IGCSEs (seems like a recurring pattern )

And that's all I know, I'm also considering perhaps sitting the BMAT.

Any further recommendations as to where I should apply with my kind of score would be amazing, I'd be eternally grateful.

Has anyone received an interview or rejection yet? As it looks like almost all interviews or rejections are for home applicants for now.
