Hi I was hoping to apply to kings college with:

UCAT: 2750

GCSEs: 9,9,9,9,9,9,9,9,8,7,A*,A

A level predicted grades: A*,A*,A*

I have a great reference and a strong personal statement

However I have a SJT band 4, do I stand a chance? And does anyone have any statistics on band 4 applications?

Post this on their dedicated thread and you'll get an answer a lot faster. For extra advice on other universities post on the medicine megathread for advice catered to the band 4.

Here’s a slightly outdated list of medical schools that don’t use the SJT in their admissions process. KCL gives higher weighing to band 1/2. Keep in mind that you are below the UCAT cutoff for Newcastle, Bristol and Glasgow last year.

From this FOI you can see that only one person was accepted with band 4 SJT in 2017/18

Apparently they’re now considering band 4 applicants as from 2022 entry, so basically this year?

I’m not sure, it’s probably false to be honest, should I even bother applying with my grades/score

Unlikely with band 4. If you want to take the BMAT then tell your exams officer now as the final deadline is on 15th October and you will be charged a late fee as it is after 1st October.
