QMuL Risk of application

Hi,
I have gotten 2770 SJT Band 2 in my UCAT score this year. 9999988888 Grades at GCSE and A*A*A*A* (chem, bio, maths & epq) predicted grades.

1) Will I have a high chance of being accepted for interviews for 2024 candidates?

2) Does QMUL really prefer contextual students? (I go to a state school and live in a deprived area)

3) Queen Mary vs. Bristol
If it's not looking great for QMuL, I hope to get a call to interview based on a contextual offer for Bristol, since the UCAT cutoff is so high (on THEUKCATPEOPLE, contextual cutoff for interview last year was 1890).
Is putting Bristol or QMuL a more significant risk?

I m sorry I don’t know much about contextual cut offs but if you were non contextual QMUL would definitely be safer. I am a non co textual and have opted for QMUL rather than Bristol as Bristol has a higher non contextual cut off.

I agree with this. You still have a decent chance of getting an interview excluding your candidate status given your predicted UCAS tarrif and GCSE grades. Your UCAT is also higher than last year’s cut off. A friend of mine (international) applied with a UCAT score that was exactly on the cut off point (2870) and had lower predicted grades than you but higher GCSEs. He got an interview and eventually an offer. Have you asked your university counsellor for opinions?
