UCAT – third decile or above
All candidates for medicine must undertake the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). Your overall UCAT score will be used in our selection for interview in conjunction with your academic performance to date. To register, and for further information please see: www.ucat.ac.uk
For school-leavers/gap-year students and graduates, applicants will be ranked according to a 50:50 weighting applied to the UCAT score and academic ability as measured by UCAS tariff or academic ability for graduates based on a weighting of degree classification or postgraduate degrees compared to other applicants who apply in that same year
Graduates who apply for the five-year programmes and four-year GEP programme who meet the minimum academic criteria will be ranked against the other graduate applicants applying in that year according to 50:50 weighting applied to the UCAT score and academic ability as measured using a points weighting of degree classification or postgraduate degrees
You will not be offered an interview if you obtained a total UCAT score below the third decile. Please note there is no guarantee that you will be offered an interview if you score above the third decile.
