I’m predicted 4A*, does anyone know if this counts as tier 1, because tier 2 only had 3A* to compare. I only scored 2510 in my UCAT tho band 3

For 2022 entry Exeter allocate an applicant score based on overall UCAT decile and A level grades combined. (NB - they don't score SJT - just have to have Band 1-3 to be considered).
There are 3 types of applicants: school leavers, non-direct school leavers and Widening Participation.
It appears capped at 3 x A* - we don't know what decile you're in for UCAT 2021 as interim stats aren't realised until mid-sept (usually) but based on last year's UCAT deciles you'd be in decile 5.
So if you were a Direct School your Exeter score would be 90.
They will interview the Top 500 in each applicant type so it all depends on other applicants' scores.

Do you know how many applicants with 3 A*+ did they have the past years?

Hello. I am predicted A*A*A* and an A* in EPQ. However my UCAT score is very low 2420 Band 2 due to technical issues during the exam. I am eligible for the widening participation route. Do you think that it is worth me applying or is it too risky because of my UCAT score?

Hi, Pearson have realised it was their issue and so provided the option to resit or annotation. My widening partcipation isnt because of this issue, it has to do with my postcode quantile.

I don't know - you could contact Exeter directly and ask, my feeling is it may be a lot this year given Teacher Predictions tend to be a very best case scenario.
It may also be worth looking at the interim UCAT scores when out in mid-sept to get an idea of the likely ask for 9th decile and the top Exeter score. Given they are only interviewing 500 within each cohort: school leaver, non-direct leavers and widening participation I'm personally waiting to see if I'm likely to score within the top school leavers and make the 500 cut.
To note - widening participation applicants can score top marks with A*A* A and lower deciles - so worth considering if you fall into this category. Not sure if they'll rank further within this though if more than 500 achieve top marks...
I don't know if @Ganfyd or @A_J_B can advise better/further - I'm just another Y13 trying to make sense of it all and apply tactically.

Again tagging @GANFYD and @A_J_B who may be better placed to advise.
Looking at last year's UCAT Stats (2020) 2420 was 3rd Decile. If you're WP then on Exeter's Admissions Policy for A100 2022 you'd score top marks with A*A*A* predicted - I'm not sure though if the 20 point increase (mentioned above their table) is included in the score or added to this (may be relevant if your predicted grades are lower). Again, it might be worth contacting Exeter Uni directly to discuss your particular stats to see where you may fall. All this is dependent though on the UCAT deciles this year and the number of applicants applying to Exeter and their scores. As Exeter don't score the SJT as long as you've Band 1-3 you'll be considered - so it may be a good option for lower SJT bands....

In case of interest - I contacted Exeter earlier today as I was concerned about number of deferrals from 2021 to 2022 given they were paying students to defer medicine places.... Admissions advised they'll publish any impact to 'usual' seats/places on their website by 1st Sept so may be worth keeping an eye on same. Don't think it'll impact the number of interviews but could impact the number of offers

Last year, every applicant they interviewed had A*A*A* predicted or achieved, and this year, there are even more of them about, given grade inflation the last 2 years

They score WP applicants differently, as per their website
https://www.exeter.ac.uk/media/universityofexeter/recruitmentsites/docs/bmbs_detailed_admissions_process2022entry_v4.pdf
If you are sure you meet their WP criteria, you would have full marks, so should hopefully achieve an interview

Hey! I also had technical difficulties and Pearson are investigating now. How long did it take for them to reply? Also what is the annotation?

they say 5 working days but for me it took 2 weeks. Basically UCAT provide a factual statement to the unis u apply to and let them know the circumastances u were under. But its essentially upto the unis how they interpret/use it

I'd suggest you post in the Which Medical School should I apply to thread - think this is link: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?goto=newpost&t=6679038 as they should be able to advise on all med unis.
Re: Exeter I can't see that they stipulate an SJT score in the admissions guidance but you might want to phone them to confirm. Look at the admissions guidance in detail as they're banding this year on predictions and UCAT overall score. Based on last year's UCAT, your score would put you in the 7th decile and with 3 x A* you'd have 95 points in Exeter's table. However, it all depends on the scores of other applicants as they're interviewing the Top 500.
If you've got excellent GCSEs you should also take a look at Cardiff as I don't think they score SJT - although they are a bit vague in their use of UCAT. Most applying though have 9 x A*/9 at GCSE to get top scores. Again give their Admissions a call to see if they'll consider you.
NB - if you have any WP factors a lot of Unis award extra allowance for same which may be helpful. You'd need to look at each one's Admission guidance in detail.

Thank you :smile:
I got straight 9s for gcses and predicted 45 points for IB. But for the UCAT I got 2600 and band 3 SJT. Is it worth applying or too risky?

Exeter only really care mostly about ur predicted grades so along as u meet the base GCSE req they dont look at it again.
