Everyone will get that email, you only need to send anything back if you want to be considered contextually.

Are you a contextual applicant or just regular?

Sadly no since it goes through a system/computer that filters out anyone who doesn’t meet the minimum requirements and rejects them, an AAA does not equal A*AB. It’s only a different matter if you were contextual.

ah that's what I thought- my teacher said something about changing the grade by emailing unis but I honestly doubt that they would accept a grade change. They did email me about my fee status so I thought that seemed a bit hopeful but yeah I'm not too sure. Thank you for the reply anyway!

Definitely email or better yet call them. But have your school/referee email/call as well saying the grade on ucas is incorrect and you are in fact predicted an A. They haven’t really started sifting through applicants yet as we’ve not even sat the BMAT, so there’s definitely still a chance. I’ve seen plenty of people getting around deadlines with a phone call/email. If you do it early enough they’re more likely to let you.

what are your other choices? It’s worth emailing them tho as most medical schools don’t accept A*AB

The grade is correct as I am currently predicted a B- it is subject to change after more maths tests though- that's why there's a chance my school could change it with the university. I did email them so hopefully I'll have more info after they respond!
I'll definitely ask my referee to email the universities as well.

Sorry to break it to the both of you, but if you look at last year's BSMS A100 thread https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6560568 by this stage in the 2021 admission cycle (24th October 2020) there were only 24 posts*!

*There were no posts between 16th and 28th October 2020!

Correct, I had to make an additional thread for BMAT essay checking last year.

P.S. Even with the separate BMAT essay thread, by this stage last year (25th October) there were ~ 1800 posts in the general BMAT thread. But this year there have only been just over 1000.

Do we only need to reply to the email about contextual data if we meet the criteria?
So even if we aren't eligible do we have to email to say that?
