2770 band 2, but I'm eligible for the partners programme, can I still get in?

partners cutoff was around 2750 last year i think, so it would be a bit risky

Hi, would it be too risky to apply to Newcastle with UCAT 2800 B2 if Iโ€™m eligible for the partners scheme

yes definitely, as you can apply to partners and get a BBB offer and a lower ucat cutoff, you would be fine even for the standard cutoff

They did a few weeks ago for 2023 entry, so it will be after the end of the cycle next year for 2024 entry
Does anyone know if Newcastle offer a lower threshold for grad students ?

Newcastle do not cohort grads, so for A100, it is the same

Thank you :smile: Also i'm not sure how exactly the scheme works - do you know if we need to go to the summer school to get the reduced ucat offer asw? Or is it just for the reduced A level grades?

well the summer school takes place well after ucat scores are ranked, so technically the lower ucat cutoff isn't dependent on completion of the summer school. to get the reduced offer you need to firm newcastle as well.


Oh thank you! So you could still get an offer with only the reduced cut off score

If you do not complete all parts of the Partners scheme - including the summer school - then you would be deemed not to have met the requirements for any offer

you fill form that opens tomorrow, then your reference will confirm that you are qualify for partners . Then you just wait until you get interview and offers , part of condition to get the offer is that you make Newcastle your firm and you attend the summer school at end of year 13 ( after the exams ).

Ohhhh thank you! So even if my interview goes well, I still have to do the summer school and firm it?
