Leicester - able to get an interview?
Im in year 13 at college, and after receiving some pretty poor AS grades i'm now having to reconsider whether I can apply to do medicine, at my first choMy GCSEs are 8A*, 2As and 1 B, but my AS levels were 3As a B in biology and a C in chemistry. Realistically do i have any hope of securing an interview at Leicester....did anyone have a similar experience then have to resit.
My UKCAT is on tuesday - what should i be aiming for now!
Sorry for all the questions but i would greatly appreciate any advice thanks x

Leicester score your top 8 GCSEs and your ukcat score. For the GCSE bit you'll obviously gain full marks and if you get a good UKCAT score I'm sure you'll be fine
If your school predict you AAA at A level including chemistry and biology, you should be a pretty ok applicant
I'd advise applying to Nottingham as they also score by UKCAT and top 8 GCSEs. The admissions tutor at Nottingham said that they only "glance" at AS grades
