    Anyone know the absolute minimum UKCAT score you should be applying to St Georges with?
    The UKCAT cut off will only be released in in November after you have applied. But you need to get at least 500 in each section.
    The cutoff last year was 647.5

    It's also likely (but not guaranteed as it depends on who applies) to be a little lower compared to last year because of last year's UKCAT scores being inflated compared to normal.

    Btw, do you know if you get an automatic interview if you pass the cutoff or is it taken into consideration along with academics?

    If you meet the min academic requirements and the ukcat cut off, you will be called for an interview.
    That's what their website says

    According to their website, you need to get at least 416 tariff points from your top 8 subjects at GCSE. I suggest you check out their entry requirements to see how they score GCSEs.

    Thanks I did I scored 432 tariff points, just a few point more than 416 that is because I only did 9 GCSEs. Do you think that they will consider GCSEs when applying or they mainly are in favour of A-levels & UKCAT?

    For now, they do consider GCSEs, AS/ A Levels and UKCAT. You would have to meet all the min requirements to get an interview.

    Do they look at the tariff point for GCSE and the grades or just the tariff point? have they accepted someone recently with Majority of their GCSEs as Bs but their A-level was AAAB?
    sorry for so much questions I'm just really curious

    As far as I know, the tariff points are what they look at. Doesn't matter what grades u get

    Hi, do sgul accept maths and further maths at A level? Also, if you were to take maths, f maths, biology and chemistry would the offer be for any of the subjects or would it have to include bio and chem even though they don't require them both to A level? Thank you

    Hey

    I applied last year with As in Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths and I got an interview. You don't have to get As in both Biology and Chemistry if u did both at A Level. However, I would strongly advice that if you're thinking abt dropping any subject, it should be F Maths because if u do get a B in either Bio or Chem (hopefully not) not all unis will take Maths and F.Maths as 2 separate subjects.
