UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?At Edinburgh, once all the scores are received they rank them, divide the groups into octiles and allocate a score. Weighting is based on applicant: school leavers: 50% academic, 15% SJT (of UKCAT), 15% personal statement, 20% UKCAT (excluding SJT); graduates: 30% interview, 35% academic, 20% UKCAT (excluding SJT), 15% SJT (of UKCAT). The points are then added to your total score to contribute towards your final ranking. Due to the introduction of the Situational Judgement section of the test, they will be assessing this as part of their non-academic requirements and not alongside your overall UKCAT score. They will consider all scores and no applicant will be excluded from selection based on the score achieved in their UKCAT test. The average score to receive an offer in 2016 was 2370.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.

Entry Requirements

GCSE Subjects RequiredGrade B / 6 in Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics. Double Award combined sciences or equivalent at Grade BB / 66 may replace GCSE grades in sciences. Additional Applied Science and Applied Science will not be accepted.5 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.
A-Level Subjects RequiredA Levels must include Chemistry and one of Biology, Mathematics or Physics. Biology at AS Level required as minimum. For both AS and A Level, only one of Mathematics or Further Mathematics will be considered. Human Biology may replace Biology but General Studies will not be considered.5 year course: Students must offer three A2 level subjects which should include Chemistry and Biology. 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).
A-Level Grades RequiredAAA.AAA for 5 year programme and foundation programme (which leads on to five year programme).
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredAAAAB by the end of S5, to include Chemistry and two of Biology, Mathematics or Physics. For some applicants this subject combination at S5 Higher is neither possible nor appropriate. Students who meet the grade requirements in S5 but are missing one or more sciences may take the missing subject(s) in S6. Human Biology may replace Biology. National 5s: B grades in Biology, Chemistry, English and Mathematics.Including Chemistry, Physics, and Biology.
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAABAAAAA
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredSQA Advanced Highers: We encourage the study of at least two subjects at Advanced Higher level in S6 and one further subject at Higher or above. The subjects of greatest relevance to a medical programme are Chemistry and Biology. Offers are usually conditional on S6 performance.Applicants 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). Applicants should normally achieve the qualifications (Highers or Advanced Highers) at the first attempt of the examinations. Mathematics and English Language must be passed to at least Standard Level with Grade 2 or Grade B.
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades Required-AA
IB Subjects RequiredChemistry and one other science subject (Biology preferred). Biology at least to Standard Level.Two 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.
IB Grades RequiredOverall score of 37 points (including TOK and EE) including 667 at HL in Chemistry and at least one other science subject (Biology preferred). Biology should be taken to at least SL. You must also provide evidence of a qualification at minimum Standard Grade 2 or GCSE B or equivalent in Mathematics and English Language if these subjects do not form part of your IB diploma. If you are using English /English Language at SL as part of the English language requirement, you must obtain Grade 5.36. 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.
