UKCAT (UCAT)

Used
How?n/aIf 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.

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).We 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.
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 or Biology/Human Biology; and one of the following subjects from Chemistry; Biology/Human Biology; Physics; Mathematics or Further Mathematics.
A-Level Grades RequiredA*AA.AAA.
Scottish Highers Subjects Required-English language and any science subject (Maths, Physics, Chemistry or Biology) not taken at Higher/Advanced Higher must have been achieved at SCQF level 5 (National 5, Intermediate II or Standard Grade Credit level grade 2 or above).
Scottish Higher Grades RequiredAAAAAAAAA
Scottish Advanced Highers Subjects RequiredApplicants are required to offer Chemistry (compulsory) and one from Biology, Physics or Mathematics at Advanced Higher.We require at least two Advanced Highers at grades AA by the end of Secondary 6. Any of the following combinations are acceptable: three Advanced Highers, including Chemistry or Biology; a second science (from Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, or Physics); plus one other rigorous academic subject; two Advanced Highers, plus one A2-level subject at grade A (subjects as above); two Advanced Highers, plus one new Higher at grade A (subjects to include Chemistry or Biology at Advanced Higher, plus one other science at Advanced Higher, and a further rigorous academic subject).
Scottish Advanced Highers Grades RequiredAAAA
IB Subjects RequiredYou must have taken Chemistry and at least one from Biology, Physics and Mathematics to Higher Level.Major subjects must include Chemistry or Biology, plus another science (one from Chemistry, Biology, Physics or Mathematics) and one further rigorous academic subject at Higher Level. Any sciences not offered at Higher Level (HL) must be taken at Standard Level (SL) or at GCSE.
IB Grades Required39, with scores of 7,6,6 in Higher Level subjects.37 points are required overall to include core points with at least 766 at Higher Level, including Chemistry and minimum 555 at Standard Level.
