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 St Andrews, the UKCAT is used to rank for interview (top 400). The Situational Judgement score contributes to the overall interview score.
