    Gave HYMS a call today about the UKCAT...they haven't yet finalised their details but they said:

    1. Last year, Band 2 in SJT received same no. of points as Band 1. They are considering doing this again this year.
    2. They will score the UKCAT based on deciles but haven't yet worked out how many points each decile scores
    Will they work it out before we send off our applications???

    Probably not - they'll work out the weightings after they receive all their applications

    That's a bit weird. How am I meant to gauge whether it is worth applying?

    You have great stats :-)

    Me on the other hand, I have 630 average on UKCAT and Band 2 (8A*s in best 8 subjects at GCSE - hoping it brings me up), I'm a lot more borderline, but screw it

    Depends on how they score the deciles.... If they score top 3 deciles same or something then I'm screwed.

    Hmm, I see, fair enough thanks for telling me. It is my fourth choice anyway since it is traditional and I like the idea of PBL
    Most unis usually indicate that a score greater than 2400 usually scores top marks. If you got 793 average, your total score is 2379, which, if doesn't score top marks, it will be damn close and will definitely pull your GCSE score up

    2380 But will it pull it up enough... that's the question

    Unfortunately, that's one question I can't answer I guess we're in a similar situation, I need my GCSEs to pull up my UKCAT, you need your UKCAT to pull up your GCSEs

    Hard life, isn't it?

    Indeed. Think I'll avoid HYMS if they don't release info soon.

    HII, I have 690 average ukcat band 1.
    I have 4A*s, 3A's and 1 B at gcse -which I know is not on par with some other medics
    4A's at A-level (achieved)
    Is it enough to be within a reasonable shot at being given an offer? And if any one can hint me toward HYMS's scoring i would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you

    I really want to apply to Hull York this cycle but am a bit unsure whether to or not as I achieved a band 3 SJT in ukcat (in every single practise and in last years ukcat I got band 2 so this was slightly annoying). Will this affect my chances in a big way or should I still go for it?
    I have A*AA already achieved in A levels with an A in EPQ and a B in AS further maths, as well as 8 A*s 3 As and a B at GCSE.
    The average of my other scores in ukcat came to 700 exactly.
    I don't mean to come across as whiny, this is just my 2nd attempt at applying to medicine and I really don't want to make the wrong decision when it comes to where to apply, one gap year is enough for me

    Your UKCAT is great! But HYMS use the SJT at interview stage as well as admissions and are one of the only medical schools to put such a big emphasis on it. If I were you I wouldn't risk it, I would apply to more UKCAT heavy schools such as Newcastle or Sheffield which don't put as much emphasis on SJT.

    Hi guys,
    Im applying here

    My stats are as follows
    Top 8 gcse's: 7A* 1A
    As level: AAAAA
    A level prediction: A*A*A* + A* EPQ
    UKCAT: 663 band 2

    My question is that after interview would they give the same marks for a ukcat sjt band 1 and 2? I forgot to ask at open day 😖
