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.
Your score is defo competitive enough for the Scottish route, and your Band 2 shouldn't hinder you that much (I looked at last year's thread and many ppl with Band 2s got offers, not sure about B3 though ). Last year cut off for RUK was roughly 2800 so thankfully I'm contextual otherwise I don't think I would even consider!

Exactly. I see that your other stats are excellent, so hopefully, they make up the B3. Good luck with your application.

It is a station so say there are 5 stations worth 1/5 of the points

I am an RUK applicant, non contextual, and im applying with a ucat score of 3020 Band 1. I was confident about my ucat score but since contextual applicants get an extra 10% im worried that my ucat will not be high enough to beat those scores. Please could i get some advice

Hi there does anyone have a source for the UCAT thresholds for RUK? Or has there not been one published?
Haven't found one in the FOIs

They have never released current cycle data until well into the next cycle before, so I would be surprised if they did now

HI, I am a RUK student with B3 and 2620 score. I do meet contextual requirements so my score will be uplifted to 2880.Would that be enough to secure an interview? And how hard will it be to get an offer with a B3?

I'm not sure about you stats but I think its something like 1.2 people per place. I don't really understand why it's so low and if is different for RUK applicants

It's weighted the same as a normal interview station so I would stay clear and apply to safer Universities like Anglia Ruskin, Plymouth, Liverpool etc.

They have said they use it as a virtual MMI station to somebody, this year, I think. So depends how well you think you can do in the rest of the interview!

Will I have to do extremely well at the interview or a good interview score would be fine enough?

I already have chosen Plymouth and ARU. My Gcses are not great so not Liverpool . My A levels are A*A*A A so have also chosen Exeter. I want to apply to St. Andrews cause i got a grade 5 in english language so applying 3 to those requiring a 5 and My UCAT will be increased by 10% so have a good chance of receiving an interview at least (2880 score when uplifted).
