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.n/a

BMAT

Used
How?n/aUsed alongside Personal Statement and grades. Admissions Tutors use the BMAT results in conjunction with the other elements of students' applications to decide which candidates will be invited to interview and to help with deciding who should be offered places on the course. Students who achieve higher BMAT results are more likely to be invited to interview but there isn't a 'pass' mark for the BMAT at Cambridge. As an indication, last year around 79% of candidates who scored an average of 5.0 or above in Sections 1 and 2 were interviews, and around 33% of those scoring below 5.0 were interviewed.
