I have my UKCAT booked for 1:00pm on Thursday, and was wondering what people consider a 'good' score.
King's College London, one of my top choices, states that:
"Scores for the last five years have varied between 630 and 735. Variation from year to year is partly due to variation in the average score UK-wide on the UKCAT, and partly due to variation in the number and quality of applications to King’s each year."
Based on this, should I be aiming for 700+ before thinking of applying to King's, or is 630 and above okay too?
Is 700 considered average, or really good? I am unsure on what score I will need to standout to the universities in question.
My best practice scores so far have been:
SJT: 39/69 = 56.522% (Not sure on the band)
This gives an avg. of 687... is this good enough?
I am also applying to 2 other UKCAT universities: Newcastle and Edinburgh.
Please let me know your thoughts!

Hi, my understanding is that 700 is a really, really good score with the average score being around 600
Aiming high never hurts but 600's for Kings should be good enough. High 600's should be good but slightly risky for newcastle as they rank solely on UKCAT score, don't know too much about Edinburgh but higher UKCAT the better
630 is still a good score and kings could be an option but would suggest other medical schools, possible Sheffield for example that seem to use the UKCAT less heavily
