Applying to QUB with score of 38. Hoping that’s safe. Does anyone know much about QUB as it’s so hard making a decision from a website! Looks nice …but hard to tell!

Do the best 9 GCSEs need to contain English or sciences? On their website, there is no info on that. GANFYD

Hi, I've shortlisted QUB as a great option as I score well for the shortlisting.

My GCSEs were A*A*9999988 hence score 34/36, and 4/6 on UCAT (2500-2699), 38/42 overall, well above the cutoff.

However, I only have AAA predicted grades. Do QUB use predicted grades. I know they ask for A*AA and I don't take an EPQ either for a lower offer. Would I be rejected straight away, is it silly to consider it as an option? GANFYD becausethenight

In general, if you’re below the A level requirements and the uni doesn’t specify that they’d still accept it, I’d assume you’d be automatically rejected. I’d also be really wary of applying if you don’t think you’ll meet the predicted grades (very very few people overperform)

Thanks for the quick response! Do you think I have any safer options? I've also looked at ARU, Aston, Cardiff, Kent, Leicester, Liverpool and Plymouth as part of my shortlist. There are some risky options here too.

I'd need your full stats (GCSE breakdown, UCAT breakdown etc) to comment. Plymouth can be risky without an A*, I'd read through the Plymouth thread for a full discussion of the chaos last year.

Hey, I'm not very sure to be honest, QUB aren't very transparent regarding English Language/Literature. In my case, I only did 9 GCSES so both fall into the top 9 anyway.

Hey everyone, I'm an international student and understand that the university will have a levy of 10,000 pounds, but I just want to know whether this includes the pre-clinical years or clinical years only. It would be much-appreciated help if you could answer my question.

Hi I’m international too, you have to check each university. Some include the levy w the fees, some only have the levy for clinical years and some have it for all

Great to hear from other international students! I checked their website and they said this:

This levy of £10,000 is payable in each year of study to cover access to clinical placements in the Northern Ireland Health and Social Care system. The clinical placement levy is not included in the tuition fee quoted above for 2021-22 and is payable in addition to the fee quoted in each of the 5 years of study.

The University will provide financial support in relation to this levy of £10,000 for year 1 and £5,000 for year 2, for students entering Year 1 in the 2021-22 academic year. Please refer to the additional course costs below for further details.


I find it a little confusing cause they talk about the levy being for the clinical years then they say that they provide financial support for year 1 (pre- clinical year.)
