    Hey what was your UKCAT score? I'm really debating applying for BM4 here (I am BM5). I'm scared my UKCAT is too low I would love to study there!

    2016 application stats:

    No. of places: 40
    No. of applicants: 1226
    Lowest UKCAT interviewed: 2900 (total)
    No. of interviews: 140
    No. of offers: 60
    Applicants per offer: 20


    The UKCAT was out of 4 sections though so divide it by 4 to get an average to compare your score.

    2014 - Lowest interviewed UKCAT score was a total of 3000 (average of 750). There were over 1800 applications to BM4, 142 interviews and 57 offers made in total.

    2015 cycle I was doing my intermediate exams and didn't do the open day so I wasn't able to steal the stats from admissions.

    2016 lowest of 2900 so ave 725.


    They are giving 2200 as a combined score as a estimate for BM4s this year (email anything to [email protected] and you get an automated reply with the data).

    Hope that helps. 2014 was the first year they started this type of admission process so that is all the data there is.

    But the combined score estimate this year is higher than last year despite the average going down. How does that work?

    I haven't a clue how they've worked out the predicted value. It's just what they're giving out on the email. The stats for last year were given out at the open day so I am pretty certain they're correct too.

    I guess I'll only find out whether I can go or not depending on when we start finding out about interviews/rejections xD

    Do you have any advice for the BM4 interview process? Also, I'm confused about the interview - is it MMI or just normal interviews? Do you have any tips for standing out amongst graduates (my biggest fear!!)? Thanks for everything by the way, you're super helpful!

    Hey!
    My experience last year was great - everyone was really friendly and you get to chat to current students before the interview process!
    You have two parts:
    1. interview panel (two people)
    2. group discussion

    And that's it. Make sure that you are ready to be questioned on your personal statement and just try to demonstrate your best! Make sure you are ready for possible questions, do lots of research and you will be fine. also, if you want more info just message me

    The advice above is pretty stellar. It is a very relaxed process. There is a standard medicine panel interview based on your ps. Then a group interview which is a discussion. Read your PS and practice a bit. In my signature is a link to my blog and it has a post on how to prepare for interviews.



    Standing out comes down to you. Think about what you want them to know about you before you leave and go from there.


    Happy to help with practice or answer questions! Good luck!
