    I cannot say for certain as I am pretty sure they do not release data about how much the UKCAT can compensate for, but that score is so very high that I presume you would be very likely to receive an interview (if not definitely in my opinion!). As long as you meet the other requirements which it looks like you do, I think the Kings application system will work in your benefit.Congrats on such an amazing score!
    Thanks for the insight! I'm not too familiar with the UK system but it's nice to know I have a good shot.

    That might be useful - it's statistics for the past two years RE: international students. Based on past years, it's about 2 - 5 % chance of getting in for us. More difficult than getting into Harvard or Princeton.

    This is useful. thanks! Well, here's to hoping my UKCAT score will get me through to the interview (and that not many internationals applied this year). After that, it seems to be about 50/50.

    It would be interesting to see the stats for the A102 course too as they only take 2 internationals for that.

    That website is actually really helpful. Why don't med schools in the UK have admission stats up anyway?

    If people are curious:

    Personal statements are marked on a binary scale between 1 for a Good/Relevant statement with an appropriate level of English and 2 for all others. Personal
    statements are used as part of a holistic assessment process in order to make a
    decision to offer an interview to an applicant or not. Personal statements are not used
    as a reference during the MMI interview process.

    The UKCAT Score is used to rank applicants and then determine which other
    academic criteria the applicant should have in order to be offered an interview.
    The UKCAT score required to get an interview is dependent on the other
    qualifications the applicant has achieved. However it would not be possible to get an
    interview with scores below the relevant average, except under very exceptional
    circumstances.
    **Average offer was A*AA but it seems like if your UKCAT was high enough, then AAA would be good**

    We do not 'weight' the different areas (i.e reference, PS, etc.) in this way. Most criteria are marked as either
    met or not met while the achieved qualifications and UKCAT scores are considered
    on a competitive basis.

    Also, if you're an international graduate who manages to get interviewed for the A102, they're likely to make you a A100 offer if you're unsuccessful
