    680? But they don't have cut-offs, just 'ideal' scores for interviews. I'm guessing people below these scores get interviewed by other parts of the application that are stellar

    Hi sorry to butt in. I've applied to KCL too. Does anyone think the delays with the whole portal will affect the time frame they gave us in the confirmation E-mail? They said 6 weeks right?

    Why would it be 680. Was around 650 for the last cycle and the average UKCAT score this year has decreased.

    It's always been between 690-700 (with the exception of 2013). I don't think they've even released last year's yet and the only time when it was super low was 2015 when it was 630 (an anomalous year because of DA rescaling) so 680 seems to be a good, safe bet.

    Like I said, there is no cut-off so whether it's 630 or 700 this year, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    Is this information published online somewhere?

    I'm not sure where you got this information from but King's College do not specify a UKCAT cut off because they look at the application as a whole. Like the previous person said, there are "advisable" UKCAT scores which would be in the high 600s to be competitive. But there is no definite cut off. Looking at some of their freedom of information pages, they said the lowest UKCAT score they interviewed last year (or the previous year I can't exactly remember) was in the LOW 600s. So I'm guessing the lowest UKCAT applicant had amazing PS, reference and grades. To say that it's always been 690-700 isn't necessarily true and it could make applicants more worried. Have a look on the UKCAT consortium to see how universities use the UKCAT and you will see there really is no telling

    Actually, if you read my last few posts, you can see evidently that I say this is no cut-off point. What I said was that it was an 'ideal' score and people don't need to worry about it whether it was 630 or 700. It is indeed true that the score yearly has been between 690-700 with some exceptions and you can see this on the consortium itself. You've simply misinterpreted what my point was and I repeated several times that there is no pre-existing cut-off. There never has and there never will be.

    I see. It came to me as if you were implying that 690-700 was the "cut off" based on the last post. Problem solved lol

    Congratulations! I was considering applying for that, in the end I decided I wouldn't be able to stomach testing on live animals (as in myself, personally; I'm not against animal testing in general). Must be reassuring to have an insurance. I think they will start sending out the first batches of rejections and interview invites sometime at the beginning of next month, maybe the very end of this one if we're lucky !
