From what I've read from the thread it seemed to very on the course taken. So RUK Scottish Pathway was higher than RUK English Pathway or No Preference. I think RUK Scottish Pathway was around 2900 and RUK English Pathway was around 2780. I found a useful FOI: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...whatdotheyknow

I've decided to apply to St Andrew's with 2820 in UCAT.

Hi all,

I am thinking of applying. I achieve WP so my augmented UCAT would be 2926/B2. I have been looking through their website but can't see anything about intercalation but the course, I believe, is 6 years. Are we able to intercalate at St Andrew's?

At St Andrews you do 3 years there and come out wiht a BSc, then move to do 3 clinical years in a different place, so the intercalation is built in

Sorry, this might sound stupid, but I thought with medicine you get a BSc and a medical degree anyway?

No, most med schools give you an MBBS, MBChB or similar. At most places you have to intercalate for the BSc, though Nottingham and Southampton give a BMedSci within the 5 years

sorry, another question. As a RUK student, are we still able to receive the government loan of £9250 to the uni as well as the means-tested maintenance loan?

See if you apply on ucas "1-3 years St Andrew's then the rest at a Scottish uni", do you definitely go to a Scottish uni if you get accepted? As im a Scottish student I get free university (I cant afford to go to England). So would there be any chance I would be sent to England?

Cheers

Hi,

I am an international applicant. My stats are
GCSE: 6A* (English, literature, Math, Double Science, Global Pers), 2 A (Econs, Music) 1 B (chinese)
Predicted: HL 666 (Chem, Bio, Econs), SL 666 (Eng, Math, Chinese)
UCAT: 2670 SJT Band 2

Would it be worthwhile to pick St Andrews as one of my choices?
probably not

Hi, thanks for being helpful to students like us GANFYD

I am an international students, will still be age 17 (Sep 2022) and considering St. Andrews as a shortlist. Would value your views

1. iGCSE: Advanced Mathematics - A*, Extended Mathematics - A*, Chemistry - A*, Biology - A*, Physics - A*, Computer Science - A*, French - A, Eng Literature - A and Eng Language - B
2. IB Predicted: Chemistry HL - 7, Biology HL-7, Mathematics AA HL -7, Economics SL -7, English SL - 6, French - 5
3. UCAT: 2600, SJT: Band 2

Is this university a good shortlist and the chances of getting an interview call?
last year for ruk it was roughly 2800 and i assume the cut off is higher for internationals so i don't think it's the best choice. i'm not 100% sure about internationals though

I have a 5 in eng language so thats why wanna apply to atleast 2 unis requiring a 5. How much of a chance will I have with it? I am eligible for minimum offer so will have my score boosted by 10% and take me to 2880. Would that be enough to get an interview? Please help

Hi,
I am a Scottish student currently on a gap year and was wondering if applying to St Andrew’s is risky or not. My stats are:
Highers AAAAA
Advanced Highers AA in art and chemistry and B in biology
UCAT score was 2480 (620) band 2
No contextual flags apart from UCAT bursary
Any tips or advice on where to apply will be appreciated thanks.

Applying to St. Andrews as a contextual applicant 2750 in ucat but 10% increase gives me 3025 (hopefully enough to interview). My only problem is my Band 3, buttttttt I think it's worth risking 1 uni for it as no one seems to know how they score SJ post interview, and all my other options couldn't give a toss about SJ.

Who else is applying?

I am but also a grad. Glasgow does not count grads for WP but Aberdeen and Edinburgh do. I haven't asked St A about this but either way I think my score should be enough as a Scottish applicant. I think you definitely stand a chance as St A's UCAT cut-off isn't that high.
