For example, in 2015 for 2016 entry: The minimum scores were: Verbal Reasoning - 530; Quantitative Reasoning - 650; Abstract Reasoning - 610; Decision Analysis - 600. An overall score of 2610At Hull York, applicants with a Situational Judgement Test Band of 4 (the lowest band) will not be considered.

Following interview, they make offers based primarily on interview performance, and they use the UKCAT Situational Judgement Test as an extra interview station.
