    Do you mean that last year minimum average to King's was 695?
    Or did you mean last year average to King's was 695?
    As it makes a "little" difference

    Minimum UKCAT Average, KCL even state it on their own web site, see text below and last sentence:

    UKCAT scores
    Your UKCAT scores will be considered in our selection for interview. They will not be the sole indicator for selection. They will be balanced against achievement in other areas, in particular your academic performance to date. All indicators will be considered together in deciding who will be selected for interview. It is therefore important to understand that there is no universal 'cut off' score for the UKCAT when applying for 2014 entry. For example, if an applicant has an excellent academic background then the test scores will play a less significant part in selection. For those with weaker academic backgrounds (relative to our overall applicant pool), the scores will become more important. An applicant who may not normally be considered on academic grounds could be invited to interview on the strength of strong UKCAT scores that may indicate potential. Also, if applicants are very similar in all other ways, the score may be the determining factor in selection for interview. As a guide for applicants, for 2012/3 entry, most applicants invited for interview had scored at least 695.

    But to be strict it says "most" not all so not an absolute minimum and candidates with lower UKCAT scores can still get interviews if they have strong credentials elsewhere.

    I seriously hope you are trolling, because your UKCAT is stupidly good and should be fine for an interview!

    no anything below 800 wont get you an interview this year i'm afraid i called them up yesterday.
    That's utter tripe. They don't even impose a strict UKCAT cut - off. For school leavers at least, it always works on a sliding scale between GCSEs and the UKCAT. The average did go up this year, but not by 200 points.
