No sorry I think Liverpool is around 2700. I got 2490 last year and was rejected by Liverpool so don’t waste your choice. However you’ve still got options so post in the which medical school should I apply to thread

I am a non contexual , non WP UK home student, and i got in with that score, my calculator didnt work during UCAT and it said that in my scores when they were sent to universities, but i HIGHLY doubt that had any bearing on my application

best thing to do now is to get an early night, and remember if you have any problems in your ucat (which you wont) make sure to raise your hand and let them know, as thats how they collect evidence for the incident report. best of luck, youll smash it, youve worked hard for this

would you recommend applying to uni of leeds with this score or would it be risky?

In my opinion it would be very very risky. So I wouldn’t recommend applying even if you have top GCSEs

I got rejected last year, and I had 4 9s, 3 8s and 3 7s, as well as an average BMAT (which is only four points in their system) and A*A*A* predicted
