UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?Cardiff does not have a minimum threshold score for the UKCAT, however, the UKCAT score may be used as part of the assessment procedure or in borderline cases.If your UKCAT score is in the approximately the top third of all results nationally then you will be invited to interview based on our UKCAT threshold as long as you meet our minimum academic requirements (for example, GCSE and predicted grades). We expect to invite approximately 900-1000 candidates to interview based on this selection route. If your UKCAT does not fall within the top third of results nationally then we will include it as part of a holistic assessment using all the information available to us to arrive at a decision (for example, GCSE grades, A-level profile, additional qualifications, NAI form etc). We expect to invite 300-500 applicants to interview on this selection route.

Entry Requirements

GCSE Subjects Required5 Year Course and Foundation Course: B (grade 6) in Mathematics, B (grade 6) in English Language, AA (7,7) in Science and Additional Science, or AAB in three separate sciences. These are the minimum and not the standard requirements.We require at least five GCSEs at grade A or A*. English Language, Mathematics and at least two science subjects are required at GCSE minimum grade B. If Dual Award Science or Core and Additional Science are offered, the minimum required is BB. Due to the phased introduction of GCSE reform in England, we will accept a mixture of GCSE grading scales. We can confirm our position in terms of equivalencies: A* = 8; A = 7; B = 6; C = 4.

General Studies, Critical Thinking and Further Mathematics are not acceptable at A2 Level. Foundation Course: If your qualifications do not include the correct subjects to be considered for the 5 year course, then you can apply for the foundation course (which goes on to the 5 year programme).Chemistry or Biology/Human Biology; and one of the following subjects from Chemistry; Biology/Human Biology; Physics; Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
A-Level Grades RequiredAAA for 5 year programme and foundation programme (which leads on to five year programme).AAA.
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredIncluding Chemistry, Physics, and Biology.English language and any science subject (Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Biology) not taken at Higher/Advanced Higher must have been achieved at SCQF level 5 (National 5, Intermediate II or Standard Grade Credit level grade 2 or above).
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAAAAAAA
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredApplicants offering two subjects at Advanced Higher level with AA grades (including Chemistry); in addition to the Scottish Highers described above, can be considered for the five year scheme (A100).

Scottish Advanced Highers Grades RequiredAAAA
IB Subjects RequiredTwo Higher Level from Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths/Statistics (not Mathematical Studies). One Higher Level must be Biology or Chemistry. The other subject (Biology/Chemistry) must be offered at Standard Level if not at Higher. Physics must be offered at GCSE level if not at Higher or Subsidiary Level.Major subjects must include Chemistry or Biology, plus another science (one from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics) and one further rigorous academic subject at Higher Level.

IB Grades Required36. Minimum of 19 points at Higher Level. 7,6,6 must be offered at Higher Level; 7 points at Standard Level Chemistry/Biology if not at Higher Level.37 points are required overall to include core points with at least 766 at Higher Level, including Chemistry and minimum 555 at Standard Level.
