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.n/a

BMAT

Used
How?n/aUsed 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.

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 C (Grade 5) or above in Double Science and Maths (two single awards in Biology and Physics can be substituted for double science).
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 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-Level Grades RequiredAAA.A*A*A.
