UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?Candidates' 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.At QUB, you are awarded points for your UKCAT score and this is used at stage one of the selection process. For example: a score of 2,200+ would score 6 points; 2040 - 2190: 5 points; 1880 - 2030: 4 points; 1720 - 1870: 3 points; 1560 - 1710: 2 points; 1400 - 1550 1 point. The current scoring system is being reviewed for 2018 entry.

Entry Requirements

GCSE Subjects RequiredEnglish Language and Maths Grade C (level 4); combination of A and B (level 6-9) passes at GCSE expected, especially in science subjects. Biology is recommended; Physics is recommended (or Dual Award Science).GCSE performance in the best 9 subjects will be scored with 4 points awarded for an A* (grades 8 and 9 on the new 9-1 grading scale), 3 points for an A (grade 7), 2 points for a B (grade 6) and 1 point for a C (grades 4 and 5). From 2021 entry, in view of the re-alignment of the A* with a Grade 9, scoring will change to 4 points for a Grade 9 and 3 points for Grades 7 and 8.
A-Level Subjects RequiredChemistry, and one subject from Biology/Human Biology/Maths/Physics is required. One further A-Level in most other subjects (not General Studies). Check with Medical Admissions Office if in doubt about suitability of a subject.Chemistry and at least one from: Biology/Human Biology, Physics and Maths. A maximum of one VCE/Applied subject. A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics cannot be counted together at A- Level. Critical Thinking and General Studies excluded. If not offered at A-level then Biology/Human Biology grade A as a 4th AS-level or grade B as a 5th AS-level. Grade A in the EPQ or Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate or a grade B in a 4th A-level is acceptable in place of the 4th AS-level.
A-Level Grades RequiredAAAA*AA or AAA + A in a fourth AS-level
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredShould our S5 minimum requirements of AAAAB in appropriate subjects be achieved then a typical offer would be Conditional with achievable S6 conditions being set. If our S5 requirements are not met, a typical offer will be Conditional upon achieving a minimum of the grades below in three appropriate subjects in S6. National 5 qualifications; English and Maths are required (Grade B minimum); Biology and Physics are recommended but not compulsory (Grade B minimum). A combination of Grade A & B passes at Standard Grade / National 5 is expected, especially in science subjects.-
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAABApplicants with a minimum of AAABB in Scottish Highers at the first attempt are given serious consideration. 32 points are awarded for AAABB; 34 points for AAAAB and 36 points for AAAAA.
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredHigher qualifications: Chemistry (Grade B minimum); Two subjects are required from Biology/Human Biology, Maths, Physics. Two further Highers in most other subjects – applicants should check with the Medical Admissions office if clarification required. These may be taken across the Senior Phase – S4 to S6. There is no requirement, and therefore no advantage given, to obtaining the three sciences required in one sitting. Maths is regarded as a science.In all cases, Chemistry (Grade A) plus a grade A in at least one from Physics, Biology and Mathematics are required. Three Advanced Highers are necessary unless applicants achieved five A grades in their Highers. If not taken as an Advanced Higher, Biology Higher is required and Standard Grade, Intermediate 2 or National 5 Physics and Mathematics are also necessary.
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades RequiredGrade B minimum.Where conditional offers are made, the standard specified in Advanced Highers is also dependent on performance in Scottish Highers and are AA (for those with AAAAA in Highers); AAB (for those with AAAAB in Highers) and AAA (for those with AAABB in Highers).
IB Subjects RequiredChemistry, and one subject from Biology/Human Biology/Maths/Physics is required. Maths studies cannot be considered as one of the two sciences. One other subject.Must include Chemistry and Biology at Higher Level.
IB Grades Required36 points overall (including core), with 3 appropriate subjects at HL each to achieve grade 6 and 3 appropriate subjects at SL (see below) with an average of 6.36 points 6,6,6.
