No 5th, because I'd rather take a gap year than do GEM.

Good luck to everyone applying this year :smile:

Final decisions:
Firm - Oxford
Insurance - N/A

Ended up withdrawing from UCL because the offer would be higher than my firm choice and this way I'm not taking somebody else's offer for no reason.

For HYMS I'm on YorWayToYork from a Year 12 Pathway. For Bristol I applied to Next Step Bristol and I fit most criteria (but I haven't been accepted yet so it's wishful thinking not set in stone)
For most courses you'd get a alternative offer but for med/dentistry (and some others) you just get a guaranteed interview

Oh that's really cool. Congrats!

Inshallah this time the offers come through.

Hey, yes i'm WP! So for all my unis, I've been participating in there summer schools and programmes so I've been guaranteed an interview, that's why my stats are a bit lower for some of the unis if I wasn't WP.

I think you have a good chance for birmingham with these stats if you're contextual as UCAT ranged for contextuals from 2360-2720 in 2022.

Hope this helps :smile:
