UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aThose who meet their minimum academic criteria will be ranked according to 50:50 weighting (UKCAT 50% and academic ability 50%). UKCAT scores sorted into deciles; candidates must score more than average UKCAT score to be considered (this was around 2330 in 2016). An interview will not be offered if the total UKCAT score is below the third decile. However, there is no guarantee of interview if you score above the third decile.

BMAT

Used
How?A numerical ranking is established based on GCSE performance & BMAT results. This forms an initial shortlist. Equal weighting is not ascribed to all sections. In 2016, weightings were: Section 1 = 40%, Section 2 = 40%, and Section 3 = 20%. In calculating the Section 3 score, double weight was ascribed to the ‘Quality of Content’ score and single weight given to the ‘Quality of English’ score (with A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1, and X=0).n/a
