UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?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.At 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.
