    There are 9 deciles in terms of scoring of the UKCAT with the 9th decile is the highest. For example, my score was in the 9th Decile. Every year the scoring is different. Each section in the UKCAT is out of 900. 700 is considered competitive. And then there is the Situational Judgment section, Band 1 being the best and Band 4 being the worst. Before this year, there were 4 sections in the UKCAT, so the full score is 3600. This year the full score is only 2700 because one of the sections (decision making) is being piloted. I do not know what will happen next year but perhaps the score will go back to 3600 because the section will no longer be piloted anymore.

    This Year's Band Distributions:
