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).The BMAT is used to rank medical students for interview, but there is no cut off. The Essay (section III) is used as discussion in the interview.

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 (or IGCSE, O-level, IB or EB equivalent) at grade B or above in both English Language and Mathematics. For candidates taking the new style of GCSEs with numerical outcomes rather than letter grades, the requirement is for a score of 6 in both English Language and Mathematics. UCL expects all UK applicants to offer a Modern Foreign Language (not including Ancient Greek, Biblical Hebrew or Latin) at GCSE grade C or equivalent (the requirement for the new style of GCSEs with numerical outcomes will be score of 5). This requirement does not apply to international students. Candidates can be admitted if they do not offer a foreign language GCSE (and their application will not be disadvantaged), but they would be obliged to take a language course during their first year.
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 Biology must be studied at A-level.
