    Yes it’s advantageous to have a high UKCAT score as there is a cut off each year and it varies depending on the scores of the applicants and applicant numbers! Also, predicted grades, GCSE’s and personal statement are taken into account!

    I have done WE in Dentists and Orthodontists for more than 2 weeks! Also, I have done volunteering for many years in a youth centre and now a charity shop - achieving awards for my work! Extra curricular includes DoFE (B,S and currently G), music, jujitsu, I also have had a part time job!

    Hi!
    I am an international applicant with 89% in my tenth grade , and predicted A*AA, however my UKCAT is low (2720, 680 avg)
    Is it that the cutoff for intl applicants is slightly lower? Looking at the stats of current students makes me feel I don’t stand a chance , I reallllly want to get in!

    Hey! I am from the UK so not sure if the UKCAT score varies but admissions are so helpful if you phoned them as I did or by email I’m sure they will be as helpful! The UKCAT cut off has varied in the last few years being 643.3 average last year to as low as 590 average but it has been higher than last years average before!

    Whoa what! I have consistently been seeing cutoffs like 700, 707, etc! So you mean to say I’m well above the cutoff? Ok that’s a surprise! 😂

    Yes😀 - although each year they won’t know the cut-off until they have received all applications and take each applicants details into account to ensure they have matched all the criteria!! Were you perhaps looking at forums for Medicine? The UKCAT cut off score for Medicine is significantly higher!! Glad I’m not applying for it! 😂😂 good luck with everything! Where else have you applied? 😁

    Yes! There are hardly any active dentistry threads on TSR, which is kinda sad — anyway I’m applying to Kings, Newcastle, Bristol and Sheffield ! This UKCAT news gives me hope, at least I should get an offer from 1 uni if that’s the case

    Goood luck with your application!

    A Levels (predicted): A*A*A(b) + A in EPQ
    GCSEs: 7 A* 2 A
    UKCAT: 670 Band 2

    Kind of regret applying to Newcastle now just in case the cut off goes up a lot! But I loved the open day so worth the risk I think
