UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aAt Edinburgh, once all the scores are received they rank them, divide the groups into octiles and allocate a score. Weighting is based on applicant: school leavers: 50% academic, 15% SJT (of UKCAT), 15% personal statement, 20% UKCAT (excluding SJT); graduates: 30% interview, 35% academic, 20% UKCAT (excluding SJT), 15% SJT (of UKCAT). The points are then added to your total score to contribute towards your final ranking. Due to the introduction of the Situational Judgement section of the test, they will be assessing this as part of their non-academic requirements and not alongside your overall UKCAT score. They will consider all scores and no applicant will be excluded from selection based on the score achieved in their UKCAT test. The average score to receive an offer in 2016 was 2370.

BMAT

Used
How?Used 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.n/a

Entry Requirements

Double Award combined sciences or equivalent at Grade BB / 66 may replace GCSE grades in sciences. Additional Applied Science and Applied Science will not be accepted.
A-Level Subjects RequiredA-Levels in Chemistry and one of Biology/Human Biology, Physics, Mathematics. Please note that in the past three admissions rounds, 98% of applicants for Medicine (A100) offered three or more science/mathematics A Levels and, of these, 30% were successful in obtaining a place. Of the two per cent of applicants who offered only two science/mathematics A-Levels, 8% were successful in gaining a place.A Levels must include Chemistry and one of Biology, Mathematics or Physics. Biology at AS Level required as minimum. For both AS and A Level, only one of Mathematics or Further Mathematics will be considered. Human Biology may replace Biology but General Studies will not be considered.
