    Well done on your ukcat score! I think you have good chances for an interview..
    Thank you I got 570 on VR, and above my average for the other sections. Do you think this will be much of a concern? Also - not wanting to sound like a ****, but is there any evidence available - e.g official stats?

    I've 'followed' this freedom of information request - as this person seems to be asking for some good stats:

    I'll keep this thread updated when the stats come along .... or get rejected

    Thanks again.

    I guess you are applying to kings medicine in 2013 for 2014 intake??? What are your UKCAT scores and what do you think would be the minimum score to make it to the interview.....Sorry for asking so many questions, its just that I have not yet given the test and so am feeling pretty paranoid.

    GCSEs - 4.5 A*s, 5 As

    AS levels - AAAA (Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Music)

    Ur ukcat us awesome but the gcses are a bit mediocre. With this ukcat I would go for kings but not sure about the gcses. My friend last year had 792 and 4a*7a and did not get an interview but maybe her ps was not so good. I do not know.

    No i dont think it is that long. I think normally the interviews are sent from november to january then you have the inteview in february and the offer after the interview will be some time after that if all goes well. I am not sure for all these so if knows something different correct me..

    It's fine

    For online resources, I used Medify. Tried ukcathelp.org but was absolutely ****, so I wouldn't recommend it. I spent a week revising, it's all you need if you commit to it, I did about 5+ hours per day.

    Does anybody know how many offers King's typically make? Cannot find any data on this and the TCR competition ratios on King's only has 2011 data with no number for offers versus 335 places in 2011. I know they interview around 1000 for around 340 places, but they would be expected to put out more offers than places, so wondering if anybody has been able to find out how many?

    Hi,

    I want to apply to Kings this year. My GCSE grades were 9A*'s and 1 A and my AS grades were AAAb, I am expecting to predicted either AAA or A*AA at A2 level. I scored 2920 in the UKCAT which is 730 average and I got Band 1 SJ

    I'm worried that my b at AS level might make me less of a competitive candidate - should I still apply?

    Those are some pretty good stats, I wouldn't be too worried about that b in as unless its in chemistry perhaps, because the main factors Kings look at, to invite for interview are the UKCAT and obvs GCSE's, both of which you pretty much nailed!

    I really want to apply to King's, I got my UKCAT back today:

    VR - 660
    QR - 620
    AR - 620
    DA - 870

    Average - 692.5 Total - 2770

    My GCSEs are 6A* 3A 1C (Darn you German)
    I've already achieved A*A*A at A Level.

    I know my UKCAT and GCSEs are both rather average, would I have any chance?

    Hello, I will applying to the A100 programme for the 2014 intake, my UKCAT score is 765 and my grades are all A*s. However, I wanted to know how important the Situational Judgement Test of UKCAT is for the selection process as I got Band 3 and I am worried that this might affect my chances of getting an interview.
    Please let me know how important this test is and if this affects my chances of selection.
    Waiting for a response
    Thanks
