    I just got home from doing the UKCAT and though I didn't do as well as I hoped, I did alright.

    VR: 640
    QR: 670 (surprising, as I'm very bad at maths)
    AR: 620
    DA: 580 (surprising, because I thought I was good at DA haha)

    Considering that the average UKCAT score for successful King's applicants is over 700, should I apply there?
    Also, I have my heart set on going to Plymouth University but I'm not sure what kind if UKCAT score will get me in.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    Hmm average score of 630. Id say thats just below most cutoffs but not impossible. Slight chance with Nottingham but definitely liverpool Birmingham (dont use ukcat) keele who only in borderline cases and any bmat ones.

    It's too early to say if 630 is a competitive score; most likely not.

    If you have over 10A*s at gcse, have a shot at kings as they use a gcse/UKCAT sliding scale. So high GCSE's compensate for low UKCAT and vice versa.

    Plymouth usually have subtest cut off points so if you pass them along with the entry req then you're almost in a shot with an interview.

    I have 6A* 5A 2B. Judging from that what ukcat score would be competitive at kings? Have work experience voluntary and extra reading.

    I've never applied to the kings course but you would definitely need 740+ to stand a really good chance.
