    Couldn't find one so started this one. Post your stats if applying here.
    Plymouth apparently uses subsection cut off for UKCAT and apparently if you meet them including the academic requirements you're almost guaranteed an interview, correct me if I am wrong.

    2014 for 2015 entryVerbal Reasoning : 520
    Quantitative Analysis : 650
    Abstract Reasoning : 600
    Decision Analysis : 580
    Overall (with standard deviation applied) : 2600


    My stats for ukcat
    VR 550
    QR 730
    AR 710
    DA 650

    It's a bit risky considering this year the average national scores got a bit higher than last year.

    Yours sound more than fine. I phoned Plymouth a week or so ago and the man told me exactly what you said, everyone who meets UKCAT sub section cut offs should be guaranteed an interview..I hope that's true!
    Mine are:
    VR 610
    QR 880
    AR 720
    DA 660
    I hope they're enough! A couple of years ago my DA wouldn't have reached the cut off so I hope Plymouth aren't too harsh, although the national average for DA has shot down over the past 2 years so it should be okay fingers crossed!

    Good luck to everyone applying! Do they not look at the personal statement when selecting?

    No based on what I know is that they just check if it is medicine related and if it has and extenuating circumstances. They don't give you score to it at all. Apparently they don't even use it in interviews...

    Once we meet the UKCAT cut off, how do they then select for interview?

    From what we could tell last year they initially selected people with A*AA either predicted or achieved and then set a moderate UKCAT cut-off too. Other than baseline GCSE criteria nothing else seemed really to matter: they look at the PS but only to check for plagiarism and extenuation apparently.

    Last year it was 12th November when they released the UKCAT cut-off (someone phoned admissions and found out)…

    Good luck

    Just phoned the medical admissions, they are meeting on Monday to decide who will be invited for interview. So we should expect to hear from them Tuesday/Wednesday onwards.

    I guess we'll just have to wait till tomorrow (since they are just having a meeting today) to see if any of us have been invited for an interview. If not, I will probably give them a call to find out what their UKCAT cut-off scores are and when exactly they are handing out interview invitations. Fingers crossed guys!!

    If you do get an interview, they'll probably be on the 25th/26/27 at the end of this month.

    Decisions are 2 weeks after that.

    Had an interview last year, goodluck.

    No, tomorrow because they are only having their meeting today so I doubt they will release any info today - I think it's better to wait till tomorrow as they'll probably have everything finalised by then. Plus I have to go to work now so don't have the time to call them haha!

    Fair enough, but I reckon they do have the scores today.
