Admissions Statistics for Medicine & Dentistry

We have split our Admissions statisics by course and fee status to make them easier to understand. As we rank Home/EU and Overseas fee payers seperately when shortlisting for interview, and when determining who to make an offer to, the cut off scores for our selection criteria can differ depending on which course you're applying to and your fee status.

Below you will find the Admissions statistics for the 2019 UCAS cycle.

Undergraduate Medicine (A100) - Home/EU Students

A100 Applications

1,597 candidates applied to A100. Of those, 608 were rejected prior to interview and 989 were offered interviews.

Indicative scores of candidates who were successful at gaining an interview are:

Top and Bottom examples: 
Low Tariff of 188 supported by a high UCAT of 3290
High Tariff of 352 supporting a low UCAT of 2540

Mid-range examples:

The top and bottom Tariff scores for School Leavers that received offers for interview were 355 and 144. The top and bottom UCAT scores for School Leavers that received offers for interview were 3410 and 2300.

Graduate candidates are ranked on a 50/50 weighting of UCAT scores and Academic Points, which mirrors the system used for School Leavers. As graduate qualifications are not included in the UCAS Tariff, we developed our own system where we assign Academic Points for different graduate qualifications.

The top and bottom UCAT scores for Graduates that received offers for interview this year was 3310 and 2580 respectively.

Please note that we do not rank applicants according to GCSE results and no data is held on this.

A100 Interview data

Once candidates reach the interview stage, the scores achieved at interview are primarily used to influence potential offers being made. This year, interview scores were combined with candidates SJT (Situational Judgement component of the UCAT) scores and ranked based on the combined score. Candidates Tariff scores were not used for consideration at this stage but overall UCAT score may have been used to determine a ‘cut off’ point.

Interviews are scored independently by 2 trained panel members out of a total of 50 points. Successful School Leaver candidates were offered places when their combined interview and SJT score was in excess of 34.5 points. Graduate candidates were offered places when their combined interview and SJT score was in excess of 43 points.

Of the candidates who were offered places based on their combined scores, the lowest successful interview score (excluding the SJT) for School Leaver candidates was 32.5, and 41 for Graduate candidates.
