    Hi all.
    I'm a graduate but looking at applying to the 5 year programme. Just read this:

    'Graduate applicants are ranked on UKCAT scores alone. The top and bottomUKCAT scores that received offers this year was 3,310 and 2,680 respectively. '

    Would a UKCAT score of 2490 be too risky?

    I wouldn't risk applying. Considering the general consensus on TSR that UKCAT scores will go up this year, the bottom UKCAT score to be interviewed/receive an offer will most likely be greater than 2680. They would reject the applicants with scores below this lowest score.

      Hey all, going to be applying here too Just to confirm, is it a 50/50 weighting on UCAS Tariffs and UKCAT? I've only got A levels to go on so hope they're enough (I play guitar and piano for fun, not for grade 8 crazy tariff points hope I'm not the only one in this situation)

      It's worth applying. You'd absolutely not be written off.

        I'd say so. The UKCAT cutoff is unlikely to go down (with the fee change issues it can be hard to predict, but likely any effect will have happened already). Maybe look at less UKCAT heavy 5-year programmes. Are you considering taking the BMAT?

        I'm an international applicant applying to Barts this UCAS cycle. I've completed my AS, with 5A's, and am predicted A*s for all five, giving me tariff points of around 700 ish? However, my UKCAT score isn't much to be happy about (2510).
        Is Barts sensible? I'm having second thoughts :s

          With a UCAS tariff like that, you stand a good shot!
