if im predicted A*A*A with 667.5 ukcat could i possible get an interview?
Do you think now the ukcat decile boundaries have changed that 2A* 2 A achieved (A level) plus 10 A* gcse plus 655 ukcat (8th decile) now would get an interview?

Ummmm, look at: https://www.ukcat.ac.uk/media/1266/2...s-oct-2018.pdf
If you look at the deciles, 7th decile is 2610, therefore, you are just about in the 7th decile. The 8th decile is 2690 so my score of 2700 is just about in the 8th decile. The 9th decile is in fact 2810 so I'm nowhere near that. What this means is that you got a better score than 70% of test takers.
Thank you, that is the document I got my information from, though I do recognise it is confusing to interpret.
of the 7th decile is 2610 and the top
of the 8th decile is 2690, so the poster who asked is in the 8th decile, you are in the 9th
Deciles work like centuries; the 1900s are the 20th century, the 1700s the 18th century. Or decades, when you are in your 20s you are in yout 3rd decade, when you are in your 50s, you are in your 6th decade. Somebody in the 8th decile has a score from 71-80% and somebody in the 9th decile a score from 81-90%
See post #1966 here for further explanation, where somebody had interpreted it in a similar way to you
"The 1st decile represents a score at the 10th percentile; the 2nd decile represents a score at the 20th percentile, and so on"
So anything between 11 and 20 is 2nd decile? Hence anything between 71 and 80 is 8th decile.
This comes up every year and UKCAT have clarified it multiple times on their Twitter feed. So unless they have decided to do it differently this year, they are in the 8th decile.
In your system, what decile is somebody at the 5th percentile in? The 0th? And in the 95th percentile? Would that be the 9th? Are you saying UKCAT run a decile system from the 0th decile to the 9th?
I think it is the 1st to the 10th, as they state in their explanation: the 1st decile is a score at the 10th percentile

How likely am I to get an interview with Tier 4?
How do they use contextual data? I believe I will meet the requirements and from looking at the 2018 thread, it looks like they lower the requirements, someone got an interview with AAA predict
Does anyone know how the tier system works with IB points?
Also, I have already achieved a 6 and a 7; I was predicted a 7 for my last HL. What tier would that be?
I am in a gap year, I have applied for Exeter medical school. I have got A level grades AABB and UKCAT 2630. I have contextual flags. Any chance to get a reduced offer please?
