Hi.

Not as such. There are lots of scraper type websites which list the information that they have found. But you arr relying on somebody else to do it for you, and to be honest a lot of the information on them is often incorrect but there is no way of knowing unless you check it all anyway.

My suggestion is once you have sat your UCAT post your details in the what uni megathread in the format set out in the first post.

Write down all the ones that are suggested to you by the experts to get a shortlist. Then do your own research. Go to each med school for those unis and find and read IN DETAIL the admissions policies for that med school read them to the end. They may be an admission policy or may have a different name but it is likely to be a separate PDF. Liverpool calls it a departmental supplement. Read them in detail and do your own scoring. People will be very helpful on the which med school thread but they dont know all the details about you. So you will need to do the legwork yourself, but use them to help you refine your shortlist.

You can always say where you think or where you would like to go to and see what they think.

Good luck.

that's really helpful appreciate it , do you think it be easier / useful just to ring the unis and ask them directly since some don't explicitly state their admissions process ?

No. They will direct you to the published document.

They will all have a process. The vast vast maj will have a sep pdf. Sheffield aside I think theirs is their website.

Its just some are more opaque than others (deliberately so I think) and some are quite well hidden. They can also change them quite late although some commit to not changing them past a set point. Cardiff published theirs in the last 24 hours, and one changed theirs last year the weekend before the deadline. So just keep on top of the ones on your shortlist right to the end !

Many of the experts on the what uni thread have been studying the admissions policies for years so a great place to start.
