Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry

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 2018 UCAS cycle.

Undergraduate Medicine (A100) - Home/EU Students

A100 Applications

2,190 candidates applied to A100. Of those, 1,303 were rejected prior to interview and 887 were offered interviews.

We use the UKCAT and the UCAS Tariff scores of undergraduate candidates in a 50/50 weighting.

Please note, in 2016 the total score for the UKCAT comprised results from 3 subtests, instead of 4. Due to the introduction of the Decision Making subtest, all 2017 UKCAT scores are higher than in 2016. Average scores in 2017 may vary to those observed in previous years, however, as a guide, the third decile (our minimum requirement) in 2017 was 2341 with 4 subtests, 1731 with 3 subtests in 2016, and 2331 in 2015 with 4 subtests. More information can be found at https://www.ukcat.ac.uk/ukcat-test/ukcat-results/test-statistics/

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

Top and Bottom examples:
Low Tariff of 164 supported by a high UKCAT of 3130
High Tariff of 312 supporting a low UKCAT of 2480

Mid-range examples:
Tariff 282 UKCAT 2430
Tariff 238 UKCAT 2540
Tariff 180 UKCAT 2760

The top and bottom Tariff scores for School Leavers that received offers for interview were 584 and 150. The top and bottom UKCAT scores for School Leavers that received offers for interview were 3,460 and 2,380.

Graduate candidates were ranked on a 50/50 weighting of UKCAT 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 assigned Academic Points for different graduate qualifications.

The top and bottom UKCAT scores for Graduates that received offers for interview this year was 3,110 and 2,440 respectively.

Please note that we do not rank applicants according to GCSE results and data is not held on this.

A100 Interview data

Once candidates have reached the interview stage, the scores achieved at interview were primarily used to influence potential offers being made. This year, interview scores were combined with candidates SJT (Situational Judgement component of the UKCAT) scores and ranked based on the combined score. The other 4 components of the UKCAT, and candidates Tariff scores were no longer used for consideration at this stage.

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 39 points. Graduate candidates were offered places when their combined interview and SJT score was in excess of 39 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 37, and 38 for Graduate candidates.
