    Its a balance of everything, they give points for UKCAT, College/previous degree grades etc and the top 800 get an interview, so although a high UKCAT helps, its not necessary if other factors make up for it
    but on the website it says JUST UKCAT?

    From email:

    This year we have had an unprecedented number of applications so the competition for selection at interview has been very tough. *We received 2646 applications for A100 Medicine 5 year, 1662 applications for A101 Graduate Entry Medicine and 637 for A200 Dentistry. We rank the applicants using a weighting of 50% to UKCAT score and 50% to the Tariff.

    I assume website is out of date
