    By talking about November she probably referred to graduate applicants.

    I don't think so. Graduate interviews run over a two day period in early jan....

    On kings site, it says interviews for overseas (non EU I'm assuming) would be late jan to early feb. This agrees with what the admissions lady replied in her email to me.

    There isn't a set cut off per se. They use a sliding scale. Where UKCAT scores and academic achievements are grouped and scored

    That is not to say there is no cut off, but you need a decent UKCAT score with good grades to have a strong chance of an interview invitation

    Last year, as stated on their website, this general score was 695

    Taken from the King's Medicine page (always a good place to go for information on Medicine at King's :p:)

    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.

    Hope that helps
