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.If your UKCAT score is in the approximately the top third of all results nationally then you will be invited to interview based on our UKCAT threshold as long as you meet our minimum academic requirements (for example, GCSE and predicted grades). We expect to invite approximately 900-1000 candidates to interview based on this selection route. If your UKCAT does not fall within the top third of results nationally then we will include it as part of a holistic assessment using all the information available to us to arrive at a decision (for example, GCSE grades, A-level profile, additional qualifications, NAI form etc). We expect to invite 300-500 applicants to interview on this selection route.

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).We require at least five GCSEs at grade A or A*. English Language, Mathematics and at least two science subjects are required at GCSE minimum grade B. If Dual Award Science or Core and Additional Science are offered, the minimum required is BB. Due to the phased introduction of GCSE reform in England, we will accept a mixture of GCSE grading scales. We can confirm our position in terms of equivalencies: A* = 8; A = 7; B = 6; C = 4.
A-Level Subjects RequiredChemistry and Biology (or Human Biology). General studies or Critical Thinking not accepted.Chemistry or Biology/Human Biology; and one of the following subjects from Chemistry; Biology/Human Biology; Physics; Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
A-Level Grades RequiredA*AA. Candidates should have predicted AAA including Biology and Chemistry (NB. Human Biology is acceptable as an alternative to Biology).AAA.
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredHighers: Five subjects at grade A including, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and English.English language and any science subject (Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Biology) not taken at Higher/Advanced Higher must have been achieved at SCQF level 5 (National 5, Intermediate II or Standard Grade Credit level grade 2 or above).
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAAAAAAA
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredAdvanced Highers: Three subjects including Chemistry and Biology must be offered (grade requirements: AAB)We require at least two Advanced Highers at grades AA by the end of Secondary 6. Any of the following combinations are acceptable: three Advanced Highers, including Chemistry or Biology; a second science (from Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, or Physics); plus one other rigorous academic subject; two Advanced Highers, plus one A2-level subject at grade A (subjects as above); two Advanced Highers, plus one new Higher at grade A (subjects to include Chemistry or Biology at Advanced Higher, plus one other science at Advanced Higher, and a further rigorous academic subject).
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades RequiredAABAA
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).Major subjects must include Chemistry or Biology, plus another science (one from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics) and one further rigorous academic subject at Higher Level. Any sciences not offered at Higher Level (HL) must be taken at Standard Level (SL) or at GCSE.
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. MYP results will be scored according to the following equivalencies to GCSEs: 7 = A*; 6 = A; 5 = B. A minimum of 5 must have been achieved in Science, English and Mathematics37 points are required overall to include core points with at least 766 at Higher Level, including Chemistry and minimum 555 at Standard Level. If Maths and English Language are not offered as part of the Diploma, they should be offered at GCSE or IGCSE at grade B or above.
