    I'm an international applicant from Canada with a 94% predicted average, (90% is the minimum); with a 755 ukcat score. Honestly I can't decide whether to think international applicants will have higher or lower ukcat scores, but I'm hoping on the latter! Any other Canadian applicants out there?
    Canadian here but I will be applying as a home (mature) student as I've been in Scotland for a few years now! Well done on your 755 and best of luck with your application dude =)

    It wasn't me that said 9th decile meant 90th percentile. I was just saying what the actual source says. It was actually backing you up. No need to be rude.
    Also it's *you're*

    Wow I'm joining a very bitter threat here....
    Got 8A*s 1 A at GCSE
    4As at A Level

    Hopefully I have a shot at interview, any idea when Kings start interviewing? I remember from somewhere Pearson release the UKCATs beginning of November so after that maybe?

    You're right! I think applicants would be fine if they got just above 9th decile.
    I am soooo confused about Kings I ve read on their website that they don't have a cut off point and I received an email from them saying that the UKCAT is only looked at in conjugation with PS and academic qualifications and I ve read somewhere else that on their open day they've told people just to apply if one has a score of over 600. On the other hand, everyone is saying that only the top 25% of UKCAT would be accepted and it seems like no one should even think about applying with a UKCAT score below 700. what does this all meaaaaan????I think I am loosing my mind. thanks for any answers by the way.

    Basically everyone with a UKCAT over 700 thinks of kings because they use the UKCAT, the higher the better, yes they look at other things but the majority of people they interview have a UKCAT 700+

    I don't think they have the ukcat scores yet, but when they do it should be soon! That may just be wishful thinking though haha

    Hi,

    I've known people to start getting interviews early October last year and the year before, prior to the UKCAT scores being released to the universities.

    Has anyone had an invitation for an interview yet?

    Also does anyone have a clue as to what sort of UKCAT score kings are looking for this year?

    With the UKCAT average again going up, I can't see kings looking below 700, maybe even higher!

    No, because 725 is a great UKCAT and should be safe! Remember TSR always has stupidly high UKCAT!
