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.Keele exclude students who scored in the bottom 20% nationally, or students who score Band 4 in Situational Judgement. Keele also uses UKCAT results in borderline cases. Applicants who narrowly miss achieving the required score for their application may receive further consideration on the basis of their UKCAT score. Similarly, if the number of applicants tied on a particular academic score exceeds the number of interview slots available, these applicants will be ranked on their total UKCAT score. In these borderline cases, the required UKCAT score will depend upon the level of performance in the test among this group of applicants. For 2015 entry, applicants who were successful in gaining an offer had total UKCAT scores in the range 2,190 - 3,170.

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.5As; Maths, English Language & Science GCSE at a minimum of grade B/6. Science/Core Science (including AQA Science A or Science B) plus Additional Science is acceptable as an alternative to Biology, Chemistry and Physics. If Further Additional Science has been taken, this must also be passed at grade B. IGCSE double-award Science is also acceptable. Applied Science is not an acceptable GCSE. Please note that physics – as well as Biology and Chemistry – must have been passed at the required level, either as a stand-alone GCSE or as part of double/triple-award science.
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.Chemistry or Biology and a second science (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths/Statistics). General Studies, Critical Thinking and Citizenship Studies are not accepted. Only one A-Level from Maths/Further Maths/Statistics will be considered; Biology and PE are not accepted in combination.
A-Level Grades RequiredAAA.A*AA-AAA
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.National 5 - minimum 5x A with minimum of B in maths, English, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Higher - minimum of AAAAB, including chemistry/biology plus a second science both at A, to be achieved by the end of S5 (i.e. before applying).
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAABAAAAB
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.Advanced Higher - minimum of AB from two subjects (both sciences) sat in S6 - any additional subject sat at Higher level in S6 must be achieved at grade B or higher. Any science subject not being offered at Higher or Advanced Higher level must have been passed at Standard/National 5 grade B/2.
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades Required-AB minimum
IB Subjects RequiredChemistry and one other science subject (Biology preferred). Biology at least to Standard Level.Higher Level subjects should include Chemistry or Biology, plus one from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Maths and a third rigorous subject. Any science not taken at the Higher Level must be offered at Standard Level grade 5 or GCSE grade B (or equivalent).
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 5.35 points from six academic subjects. Three grade 6 passes at IB Higher Level and grades of 6, 6, 5 at Standard Level are required.
