Depends - given that last year they required 1 A* predicted and are no longer releasing UCAT cutoffs in advance it’s not that clear - you do have safer options with your UCAT score.

Why do you only have 5 GCSEs?

Hi, I've short-listed Plymouth as one of my choices but wondered if anyone know what the post-interview selection criteria consists of. I've emailed the admissions team, looked on TSR and the university website, but can't see it. Thanks, any information would be much appreciated.

Hi, i’m currently in year 12 studying history, gov + pol and psychology a2 with predicted AAB. I did chemistry and biology last year and got AC. What are my chances of getting in if i apply next year (bachelor of surgery foundation) with my 2nd year of bio completed and then 3 other a levels probably coming to ABBB. I fit 5 of the 7 criteria’s too and am going to work in a care home for the experience once i turn 18.

I just found out that you had to send proof of bursary, etc before the UCAS deadline, I sent it at 20:00 pm. Does that mean the proof won't be considered?
