UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aAt QUB, you are awarded points for your UKCAT score and this is used at stage one of the selection process. For example: a score of 2,200+ would score 6 points; 2040 - 2190: 5 points; 1880 - 2030: 4 points; 1720 - 1870: 3 points; 1560 - 1710: 2 points; 1400 - 1550 1 point. The current scoring system is being reviewed for 2018 entry.

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

Entry Requirements

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).GCSE performance in the best 9 subjects will be scored with 4 points awarded for an A* (grades 8 and 9 on the new 9-1 grading scale), 3 points for an A (grade 7), 2 points for a B (grade 6) and 1 point for a C (grades 4 and 5). From 2021 entry, in view of the re-alignment of the A* with a Grade 9, scoring will change to 4 points for a Grade 9 and 3 points for Grades 7 and 8.
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.Chemistry and at least one from: Biology/Human Biology, Physics and Maths. A maximum of one VCE/Applied subject. A-level Mathematics and Further Mathematics cannot be counted together at A- Level. Critical Thinking and General Studies excluded. If not offered at A-level then Biology/Human Biology grade A as a 4th AS-level or grade B as a 5th AS-level. Grade A in the EPQ or Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate or a grade B in a 4th A-level is acceptable in place of the 4th AS-level.
