UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aCandidates' UKCAT scores are considered in selection for interview alongside actual and predicted academic achievement. A minimum UKCAT cut-off score is NOT used. A score (between 1200 - 3600) is allocated based on the applicant's overall performance compared with all other applicants. Interview: the lowest total score for an applicant invited to interview 1600 and the highest 2480 Offers made: the lowest total score for successful applicants who were made offers was 1660 and the highest 2480 Please Note: Scores for 2017 may seem lowere due to only 3 subtests being scored.

BMAT

Used
How?The BMAT score is used to rank candidates for interview. BSMS scores the BMAT out of 28 (9 marks for Section 1, 9 for Section 2 and 5 marks for each element of Section 3) we then rank all applicants according to their total score out of 28 and work down the rankings to fill our interview places. For 2016 entry, applicants without contextual data who scored 16 or above were invited for interview (the cut off score will vary each year).n/a
