    Last year it was 44 without the SJT points, as the SJT was declared void, Nobody knows what it will be for this year, yet.

    I presume it will be higher as sjt points will be included this year, will a score of 47 this year be risky?

    Actually, I emailed the admissions people and they told me last years cutoff was 39 without sjt.

    With the personal statement marked last years cutoff was 45

    So that means you could get 1 mark On your personal statement as long as you met the GCSE and UKCAT cut off?

    Our UKCAT results don't reach them till November so I assume they haven't even started looking at our applications yet.

    I read something in the FAQs a few months back about there being a 71% weighting in the UKCAT of the academic score but this information is no longer on the website, does that mean that there's an equal weighting between GCSEs and UKCAT?

    Maybe they've started scoring part of our UCAS forms already

    I'm a little confused with the scoring method. I phoned up the admissions office and they said the cut off last year was 36/55. I have a friend who applied last year and they rejected him for the reason that their cut off was 46/55 and he didn't meet it as he got 45.

    I have a score of 47
    Anyone heard anything else?

    is it true that they reject people that get below average scores in one of the sections for the ukcat?
    they score ukcat and gcses out of 55 then make a cut off for the years applicants. If you don't meet the cut off you get rejected.

    I phoned them up and they said that their scoring process is in 2 stages. stage 1 is the GCSE and UKCAT, of which I'd score 47 too. Last year you had to get 39 to move on to stage 2 of scoring where they'd take the top 50% of those who pass that threshold to move on to stage 2 when they score your personal statement out of 16. Then after that, last year if you had over 45 as a total of stage 1 and stage 2, you'd be invited for interview. (Might be wrong but that's what I can make sense of at least!)
