Ooh that would be good since I have all A* predictions too but I don’t think so. They basically rank you ucat wise and then last year threw in an A* prediction but not as a bonus, but an academic requirement, so I don’t think so
do you think there will be an A* academic requirement this year?

Idk, I don’t know if they’ve said anything on it so maybe have a look on their website and see if they explicitly state it? I don’t think they do but I can’t remember haha. They may do, especially with this year predicted to be as competitive or even more so as last year. It’s just as easy way to get rid of people. But since they aren’t releasing their cut off early like they did last year they may choose to just up the ucat cut off not the prediction. Who knows basically

Hey guys! I'm an international applicant for medicine and was wondering if Plymouth would accept me with these stats:

IGCSES; 7A*s
A Level predictions: 4 A*s (Chem, Phy, Bio, Maths)

UCAT: 2650
VR: 700
DM: 690
QR: 660
AR: 600
SJT: Band 2

Work Exp: COVID vaccination drive volunteer, HR intern at local hospital

Does anyone know what was the UCAt cutoff for intl students in 2020?

Any advice is highly appreciated!

If you look through the thread, there was a message from the Plymouth rep (although it is clear as mud). Personally I would not risk it without the A* unless I was very limited in my options.

How likely is it for ucat cut off to increase above 2440? I have A*s for alevel predicted grades so I’m hoping them to use A* rather than raising the ucat cut off…

Did the A* prediction have to be in chemistry last year or just in any science subject?

I think it was in any science, but I'm not sure. (I believe they count Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Psychology all as sciences)

I know they prioritised A* predicted last year but do they like achieved grades, if I already have AAA is it worth a shot since their offer is AAA?

They do not prioritise achieved grades. Depends whether they insist on an A* for shortlisting again this year, or just use UCAT

I just want to check and clarify that they do not check gcses. My Alevels are A*, A*, A* in all 3 sciences (biology,chemistry, psychology.) But my GCSES are extremely low (but they do meet the entry requirements). I was hesitating to apply to Uni of Plymouth as nearly everyone who has applied has got very high GCSES.

They just look for the entry requirements, you should be fine Correlation isn’t causation - most med applicants will have good GCSEs because it correlates with being able to do A levels etc, not because it’s a requirement.

As long as your application is submitted by the deadline there's no advantage to applying on September 14th compared to October 13th.

Offers were AAA last year, I believe, but they do say may be AAA - A*AA, so they have reserved the right to increase offers if they decide they want to

Apparently the A* prediction had to be in a science, if they do increase the offer to AAA* do you know if it has to be in a science + when we will find out?
Thanks, sorry that’s not particularity coherent
