UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aCardiff does not have a minimum threshold score for the UKCAT, however, the UKCAT score may be used as part of the assessment procedure or in borderline cases.

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

GCSE Subjects RequiredThere are no specific GCSE requirements for Medicine, though higher grades can help to make your application more competitive. Successful applicants typically have a high proportion of A and A* grades (grade 7-9) However, in order to be adequately equipped for the BMAT, and if Biology, Physics or Mathematics have not been taken to A-Level (or equivalent), applicants will need to have received a basic education in those subjects (for example at least a grade C/4 at GCSE).5 Year Course and Foundation Course: B (grade 6) in Mathematics, B (grade 6) in English Language, AA (7,7) in Science and Additional Science, or AAB in three separate sciences. These are the minimum and not the standard requirements.
A-Level Subjects RequiredAt least A grade in both Chemistry and at least one from Biology, Physics or Mathematics (Critical Thinking and General Studies are not considered). They have no preference for whether the third or fourth A-level subject (or further subject in equivalent qualifications) is a science or not.5 year course: Students must offer three A2 level subjects which should include Chemistry and Biology. General Studies, Critical Thinking and Further Mathematics are not acceptable at A2 Level. Foundation Course: If your qualifications do not include the correct subjects to be considered for the 5 year course, then you can apply for the foundation course (which goes on to the 5 year programme).
