Hiya ecolier Second post in this thread. I am looking to apply to Cardiff University Medical School for 2022 Entry. My GCSE points are considered low for them (22/27). However, I have 9 points from achieved A-Levels (3A*s). Do you know if these 9 points add onto the 22 from GCSE to max out at 27, or is it my 3 A-Level grades and 6 other best GCSE grades? For example, making in my case 25 points which is still good for Cardiff.

I seen a post where someone said the points from A-Levels add on to your GCSE points and in this case, I would max out at 27/27 but I am not 100% sure. I've also seen some things about Cardiff saying they really like achieved A-Level grades and that these will compensate for lower GCSE grades. These were actual official slides from a powerpoint delivered by Cardiff Medical School. Could you confirm if I would max out at 27/27 points and if it would be worth applying there? I ask because I love the medical school and am really passionate about that being my first choice if possible. I will go to any medical school if given the offer/opportunity, but if I get Cardiff, I will firm it. And in my case, would I get an unconditional offer if my UCAT, interview etc goes fine as I have achieved grades and am not waiting on A-Level grades?

Cardiff do indeed add points from achieved A levels to GCSE points, as per their website

OMG thank you so much. I have all of the core GCSEs at B grade and above. I'm freaking out. This means a lot to me. I'm glad I can reapply to them this year as my GCSEs let me down last year. If I get an interview, I know a lot about Cardiff and its placement hospitals as I'm Welsh. They usually like to ask about Cardiff specifically and I'd be really good at questions like that. I'm quite good at interviews especially MMIs but I didn't have the chance last year, so I'm really excited

GANFYD do you have any indication what UCAT score would give you an interview at Cardiff provided all other requirements are met?
