Hey guys,
For the past week I've been trying to submit my A2L form but the site keeps saying there's a technical error. Has this happened to you too?

If by the end of October the problem is still persisting I plan on submitting the form by email.

Are you also having the same issue?

Hi, I've also been trying to submit the form but have been experiencing the same technical issue. I emailed them this morning and received an automated response - "We are aware that there is a technical issue for some applicants when trying to submit the form, this is being investigated. Please hold on to your application form for now and you will be able to upload once this has been rectified". I thought I was the only one having the issue!

Hopefully it'll all be sorted soon

I emailed them about the process and this is what they said
Scoring

On receiving the application the initial shift looks at academic background and BMAT score. We add the marks for GCSE or AS (whichever is the higher of the 2) with the marks for predicted or actual grades at A Level to give a total of 32 points for exams.



GCSE = 9/8/A* = 3, 7/A = 2, 5/6/B = 1

The highest score for GCSEs is 24 points for 8 A*s (including English, Maths, and Double Science or Chemistry and Biology) or 24 points for 3 grade As at AS (including Chemistry or Biology).

The predicted grades (supplied by your school/college) are scored out of 8, with 8 points awarded for AAA. The standard offer for Leeds is AAA at A2 including chemistry or Biology with either Maths or Physics. A fourth AS-level would not be academically scored therefore the presence/lack of a fourth AS would not affect an application.



BMAT scores are ranked at Leeds. The top scoring 20% (only those who applied to Leeds) are given 5 points, with 1 point being given to the bottom 20%.

This score is added to the overall academic score. Applications are ranked again with the top 1000 being called for interview.



There are 8 stations for the MMI interviews with marks awarded for 3 attributes per station. Communication skills are marked on all stations. Points for each attribute range from 1 (poor) to 4 (excellent).

The percentage weightings are as follows for the initial sift of applications:

GCSE or AS – 64.9%

A2 – 21.6%

BMAT – 13.5%
I just wanted to clarify the difference between as level grades and predicted, I thought they were the same thing. Is AS grades the grades that you probably achieved from the year 12 end of year mock, or is it the same as predicted.

Would these stats be okay?

GCSE - 1A*, 8A’s, 1B
A level - AAC
Degree - first class achieved
Depends on your A-level subjects and degree

Their website states 'A 2.1 or greater in an undergraduate degree which contains the equivalent of level 3 Biology or Chemistry plus 3 A levels at grade C or above. A 2.1 or greater in a degree without level 3 Biology or Chemistry will require a B or above in Chemistry or Biology, and C or above in 2 other subjects. If Chemistry is not offered then Physics or Maths must also be offered to grade B or above.'

No AS levels are a formal set of exams taken at year 12 which used to be taken in England and are still taken in some countries such as NI and Wales (I think they still take them)

I'm thinking of putting Leeds down since I didn't do too well in the UCAT but am hoping to do better in the BMAT. I'm a gap year student and failed to get in last year due to the interview .... whats the interview process like at Leeds...?

The odds are dismal just like all the universities - everyone fighting over the few places offered and with more people applying this year its every worse. Any help on the interviews will really be appreciate?..

For the second time, use the TSR medicine interviews thread: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=7094579

It's free and staffed by med students, doctors, interviewers etc. Ask all the Qs you like.

I believe no one is allowed to tell you anything specific about the interviews or the questions they ask other than publicly available information.

I think Leeds have said this year the interviews will be online and will be in an MMI format.

You would have a pretty solid score as long as you get an alright or amazing score on BMAT you should be pretty good for an interview.

What would an alright score be on the BMAT? I've worked out I get full academic points for my degree and GCSE's but I'm struggling with the BMAT. Based on last year for an interview I'd only need 2/5 on the BMAT - do you know roughly what that could be?

It changes every year because Leeds do not look at BMAT scores nationally, they just look at the scores of the people who apply there and then rank them with the 20% getting the full 5 points and the bottom 20% getting 1 point.

Hey guys,

I heard the BMAT is ranked against other candidates applying for Leeds and not nationally. Does that make much of a difference? Do people applying for Leeds tend to score higher so would you need a higher score?
