Hey I’m the exact same with a score of 2810!! Really keen on Sheffield too but the cut off is also making me nervous haha:/ pls let me know if you do apply!! I just don’t know if it’s too risky since we aren’t that far alive what it was last year
Same I have 2840 and I'm also worried at the idea of the cutoff rising to something like 2900. Last year the cutoff was 2740 and I had 2730 so I was one or two more correct answers away from getting in and I hope that doesn't again this time (I am 100% applying here again)

Pls I’m the exact same haha because if it jumps up again we will be cut off. I think I will still apply though because my other three options are much safer for me so Sheffield is my only really risky one and I do really want to go let’s pray haha

yeah of course, I can let you know if I decide to. I think I will wait until the final deciles come out to decide. I also didnt realise that Sheffield use SJT as part of the interview score, and I'm worried my band 2 might let me down, but at the same time band 1's are rarer this year, so really not sure about what to do.

Yes haha I’m band 2 as well but interim is suggesting only 16% of applicants got a band 1 so really the vast majority were band 2 so I’m not too concerned about that😭 the thing is my school has a much earlier ucas deadline for some reason so I have around a week to decide:/

Yeah the main reason I'm applying is because they're the only medical school besides Kent that would take my current grades (AAB + A in EPQ)

Sheffield rank applicants using their UCAT score and interview from highest to the point when their quota of interview places are filled. The cut off for 2020/2021 cycle was a UCAT of 2740.
I don’t believe it makes a difference on interview selection if you have achieved grades or not.

Hi, I'm a gap year student- is it worth applying with:

GCSES: 99 88 7777 66
A Level: AAA
UCAT: 2810 B2

I guess the only thing I'm worried about is my GCSEs? Only as it didn't meet the cut for two of my unis last year.
thanks in advance <3

Are you posting this in every med school thread? Have a read of a med school's website, as that will tell you what GCSEs are needed

Hi, just to the four I was considering applying to. Thank you I'll have a look- I was more wondering if there were any point systems that they used, but have my answers now.

And it is sensible to check that, but only for places that are not clear on their website!

I'm no expert haha but last year Sheffield's ucat cut off was 2740 I believe so your score would be too low unless it drops significantly:/

They are doing panel interviews again this year - SJ was one of the stations in the past. Wonder if this means SJ band will not be used this year...........

When do Sheffield start interviewing?
Last year they informed applicants on the 16th November whether they got an interview or not, and I think started interviewing around early weeks of December.

I got UCAT 2690 and STJ band 1....i read this on the website and thought i was good to apply "In addition to the academic requirements, all applicants must have achieved a score of 2430/3600 or more to be given further consideration" - but now reading on here my score would not be sufficient...is that correct? Damn i thought id just found my 3rd or 4th place!
