It is hard to be sure, but there has not been a lot of movement on Birmingham deciles between years, generally, and 20 points would be quite a lot.
I would also have hoped 132 will be safe for Nottingham, so she should choose the one she likes best, where there is no clear pointer one way or the other.
Thanks so much. I really appreciate the advice.

Hi guys, this is a general question which I would really like an honest answer to.

If I didn’t get all 9s at GCSE and have a few 7s and 8s and one 6, do you think I would have a chance of getting into UoB for medicine?

Please do reply thank you!

You need to be on the school list, your Polar quintile just decides how many points you get

Birmingham score 5 core GCSEs and two extra. Depending on your contextual points, and UCAT, you can possibly drop a grade on one or two of these

Hi
I’ve just seen that University of Birmingham has raised their entry requirements for medicine to A*AA. Should we be worried about this? Also will other medical schools follow along and raise their entry requirements?

i dont think anyone needs to worry, just dont apply if you are unlikely to meet the offer. and i dont think other schools will necessarily follow

I got 11A*s at GCSE and 2820 Band 2. Predicted A*A*A*, however I score no contextual points. Despite these stats, if you go to a grammar or private school, will you have a good chance of an Interview with these stats?

You should interview, but Birmingham are using SJT as 25% of interview score, so you have lost points before starting with a B2

Hi

I score 7.658 according to their calc - assuming a 7th Decile 2.33 score for my 2690 UCAT, and inc contextual (school and Polar)
I will call them to confirm my calc, tmrw

Is this score a risk or worth a go - any idea?

id be keen as a got a STJ band 1 that i understand my help me in the interview aspect - if i get that far.

Thoughts??

7.658 should be fine, and yes the band 1 would be very advantageous

yes, thanks!
Can i sanity check how you got your score e-m-m ?
i got my calc to be 7.655, based on
22 in gcse = 4.125
Ucat 2690 = 2.33
Context school based on State school and Quintile 4 = 1.2

PS
I think im following you around the forum a little as i also got v similar results - 2690 and STJ 1. Local Comp and Polar Quintile 4 for me.
Also looking QUB, Cardiff (im from Wales), Plymouth + 1 more...TBC
