GCSEs?
Look at the uni pages, they commonly say how they decide applicants such as, 20% Ucat , 40% Gcse 40% predicted grades

What is your exact UCAT score?
Oxford and Leeds (BMAT) are known for being GCSE heavy. As for UCAT universities Cardiff, Liverpool, Birmingham and QuB tends to be more GCSE heavy.

Yeah 2940 is an excellent score which is good enough for any medical school. What are your GCSE's and A-level predicitons like?

You only have to take the BMAT if you have a BMAT university that you want to go to. Tbh with your stats you could probably apply anywhere you like.
I’m a first year dental student lol.
