UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?At Birmingham, there is no UKCAT cut off score. An application will receive an overall score, which is the sum of weighted scores for each of the academic and UKCAT components. GCSE and UKCAT used for interview. The weightings are: academic – 70%; UKCAT – 30%. Total UKCAT scores of our applicants (excluding the band score for the SJT component) will be separated into deciles and scored (i.e. the top 10% of applicants’ scores will be in the top decile). The maximum score is 3.0. For example, for 2015 applicants, the 10th decile was a score of 2980 and allocated a score of 3; 9th decile was a score of 2880 and allocated a score of 2.67 - and so on.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 RequiredAn application will receive a score for academic achievement based on GCSE (or equivalent) results. The subjects that will be scored are: English (both English Language and English Literature), Mathematics (or one, but not both, of Methods in Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics), Science (either, both of Biology and Chemistry or Double Award Science), plus two additional GCSEs (any subject). For the subjects specified above, a minimum grade of B (grade 6) must be offered. It is expected that the scores allocated to the different grades will be in the ratio of 4:2:1 (for A*, A, B, respectively). For each of the two unspecified subjects, a score of 2 will be allocated when an A* grade has been obtained (lower grades will not receive a score).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 RequiredChemistry and Biology (or Human Biology). General studies or Critical Thinking not accepted.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 RequiredA*AA. Candidates should have predicted AAA including Biology and Chemistry (NB. Human Biology is acceptable as an alternative to Biology).A*AA-AAA
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredHighers: Five subjects at grade A including, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and English.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 RequiredAAAAAAAAAB
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredAdvanced Highers: Three subjects including Chemistry and Biology must be offered (grade requirements: AAB)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.

IB Subjects RequiredHigher level: 766 from Chemistry and Biology and one other approved subject (in any order). Subsidiary level: The subjects must include English and Mathematics if not offered at the higher level (Maths Studies is acceptable).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 RequiredMinimum of 32 points must be attained. You must provide results from the Middle Years' Programme if available, or a GCSE-equivalent qualification.
