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.At Dundee, there is no minimum cut-off score. Your UKCAT score will be factored into the pre-interview rank alongside academic ability. There is no specific cut off applied but obviously a high score is advantageous. Weighting is dependent on applicant type: school leavers - 40% UKCAT, 60% academic; graduates: 60% UKCAT, 40% academic.

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).They require biology, at least to GCSE grade A.
