Search medify medicine entry requirements and it’ll tell you where to apply with your score, I reccomend staying away from Edinburgh and the more prestigious unis as you may not get an offer due to your UCAT score

Russell Group, rankings and prestige means nothing for clinical medicine.

And just because a university is perceived to be more "prestigious" doesn't automatically mean their UCAT requirements are more strict!

You’re completely right, my bad I didn’t word it right, I mean use the medify search to find which universities have a ucat cut off point below your score. By prestigious universities I mean universities with high Ucat cut offs

Haha fine I'll let you off, but remember that all med schools have different ways of evaluating, and their perceived "prestige" means nothing when it comes to their selection criteria.

e.g. Cambridge has no GCSE requirements, officially and as do Newcastle. Yet the latter is very UCAT heavy so it's prestigious I suppose.

Bristol is also quite UCAT heavy... and Liverpool was GCSE-heavy last year and more UCAT heavy this year - so they must have become more prestigious :lol:
