    I realize I'm moaning but there has to got to be a better way of ranking people then by a silly test which has nothing to do with medical capability.

    Amen to that, UKCAT is the most useless thing invented.

    oh well, this is what I worked out :
    600 tariff 2900 UKCAT
    736 tariff 2520 UKCAT
    SO, 136 tariffs for 380 UKCAT
    ==> each 10 tariffs you need less 27.9 UKCAT ( only work if your tariffs are between 600 and 736 )
    For example, 660 needs 2732 UKCAT to fall into the middle range
    For a tariff of 660 from your method wouldn't it be a UKCAT of 2687
    Because 380/136 would give the number of UCAS tariff points per ukcat point
    Then times (380/136) by 60
    Then plus that answer onto 2520
    And it comes out as 2687?

    Heard nothing yet, holding onto some hope. However, QM is one of my lower choices and so far, I'm not very impressed by their admin.

    My head teacher called them, so did I. They do not feel that the French students have completed enough hours of Biology compared to other subjects. Which is completely insane their thinking as someone from my school last year just entered in cambridge for medicine. I asked them by email in August and they said it was totally fine, lies. And i took the ukCAt just for them. I feel deeply betrayed, I Could have applied instead for Plymouth. Urg. Now fingers crossed on bristol and Liverpool as they both accept the OIB. So just to tell future EU applicants that don't take the IB., don't apply to Barts. They aren't open.
    That's absolutely awful. I full letter of complaint needs to be written. It's not fair to tell you that your qualifications are fine when 'they are not' (which I think is complete ****. Good luck with Bristol and Liverpool.

    Guys you do realise this is pointless...calculating it from the mean scores given an interview...no one really knows exactly how they calculate it and I think it's more to do with rankings (i.e. they rank the UCAS and UKCAT and you need to get above a certain threshold in both) rather than your raw score! Hence seeing as everyone scored so highly on the UKCAT, the UCAS tariff ranking would probably play a bigger role in selection even though the weighting is 50:50. But this is all speculation, when interviews are sent out then we can know for sure.

    I got 632 UCAS tariff points, so using the stats previously posted, my UCAS points are in the mid range, but my UKCAT is only 667.5, do I have any chance? Plus do they look at personal statement?
