UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?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.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.

Entry Requirements

GCSE Subjects RequiredWe 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.Grade B / 6 in Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics. 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 RequiredChemistry or Biology/Human Biology; and one of the following subjects from Chemistry; Biology/Human Biology; Physics; Mathematics or Further Mathematics.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.
A-Level Grades RequiredAAA.AAA.
Scottish Highers Subjects RequiredEnglish 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).AAAAB by the end of S5, to include Chemistry and two of Biology, Mathematics or Physics. For some applicants this subject combination at S5 Higher is neither possible nor appropriate. Students who meet the grade requirements in S5 but are missing one or more sciences may take the missing subject(s) in S6. Human Biology may replace Biology. National 5s: B grades in Biology, Chemistry, English and Mathematics.
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAAAAAAB
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredWe 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).SQA Advanced Highers: We encourage the study of at least two subjects at Advanced Higher level in S6 and one further subject at Higher or above. The subjects of greatest relevance to a medical programme are Chemistry and Biology. Offers are usually conditional on S6 performance.
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades RequiredAA-
IB Subjects RequiredMajor 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.Chemistry and one other science subject (Biology preferred). Biology at least to Standard Level.
IB Grades Required37 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.Overall score of 37 points (including TOK and EE) including 667 at HL in Chemistry and at least one other science subject (Biology preferred). Biology should be taken to at least SL. You must also provide evidence of a qualification at minimum Standard Grade 2 or GCSE B or equivalent in Mathematics and English Language if these subjects do not form part of your IB diploma. If you are using English /English Language at SL as part of the English language requirement, you must obtain Grade 5.
