Hi, I'm applying for Keele, Aston and Sunderland but I'm stuck for a 4th choice and I'm not doing BMAT.
Worried about applying to KMMS as they look at how you performed relative to your schools attainment 8 score in stage 2b of their selection process and they check to see by how much better you performed in GCSE's compared to your cohort who took GCSE's at the same time and Group B applicants.

They can't apply anywhere now, as passed the deadline.
And ARU cut off has been >2500 the last 2 years, so would have been a big gamble

Not sure how that will help if 190 points under the UCAT cut off and no BMAT?
