    Okay I'm really confused with the deciles and everything, I got a score of 1980, does this mean I did better than at least 60% or 70% of people?
    1980 is still 6th decile if you were 10 higher you would be 7th, so more than top 60% but not top 70%. You can't really find exact percentage since it's a bell curve type graph

    1980 means you are in between the 6th mark and the 7th mark. So as you see at the bottom it says 6th is 60th and 7th is 70th. That means you are between 60%-70% so at least 60% of people did worse than you and 30% of people did better than you.

    Mate, why are you torturing yourself already? Uni's don't get your ukcat results until sometime in November.

    Hey guys,

    Do you think it's too much of a gamble to apply to Barts medicine with 480 ucas and 2150 (716) on UKCAT? Thanks in advance

    Because to select candidates for interview, they rank ukcat and ucas 50:50. They give equal preference to predications and achieved ucas points. Most people that apply here have super high tariffs bc they've done extra A-Levels or the IB or music qualifications.

    If my dodgy iPhone calculator is correct then these are the averages without DA: 2012 at the top to 2016 at the bottom.
    623
    624
    630
    634
    631
    So the average this year is actually quite decent tbf.

    Your tariff is quite high though, plus I'm pretty sure your UKCAT score puts you in the 9th decile

    The deciles are the EXACT same as in 2014 without DA and that's when Manchester had the 58th percentile cut off!
    There is still hope!!!

    It shows the averages in 2015 already i think. I thought the average was going to increase seeing as QR and AR were much easier this year for everyone because a lot more got over 800 but i guess not, perhaps it got weighed down by VR. Everyone on here seemed to have got a lot more

    Yeah that's what I was thinking too tbh! I'm quite happy with the average and my score contrasted tbf. My QR massively inflated my score lmao 😂
