    hahaha yes it was 626 last year but its pretty similar so I think it just depends on which students applied where with what score :P

    Hey guys i rang up Glasgow today, they said the ukcat national average this year was 2488, they didnt request the average in each of the four subsections as they only use the total score. Hope this helps, it works out at like 622. but I looked up ukcat 2009 report and the average last year was 2504.57 so it has gone down this year

    Hope this helps :P
    Oh wow
    Thanks for that! Btw does that mean 622 is their cut off aswell? Or thats just the national avg?

    I called them yesterday and they said that they haven't even screened all of the application forms yet and that anyone claiming to have an interview is being less than honest as they will not begin to offer these until start of Dec!

    She also couldn't tell me what their minimum ukcat score would be for interview as she said they take the top x applications and the cutoff will be whichever score is at the end of that list and as they hadn't gone through all the applications yet she couldn't say what that would be.

    Perhaps they have since acquired this information or maybe it depends who you manage to get on the phone. I spoke to medical schools admission dept.

    Cut off last year was 642 for Glasgow. It will definitely go up. Newcastle last year was 650 and it has gone up to 665 this year. So I don't think it matters much about the average score.

    It was last year but I think I got mine in November, most people seemed to be notified by Christmas but I think there were some being told after Christmas.

    I hope they start interviewing before Christmas, I can't wait to see you all coming in in your suits :teeth:
