Non-direct school leavers
The entry requirements set out in this section apply to you if your current suite of qualifications do not meet those published above in the Direct School Leaving section or more than five years has lapsed since achieving them.



Would seem something is wrong, so check with their admissions and they can id whether the fault is their end or UCAS.

Can someone please tell me how they select applicants? They do not rank on UKCAT I was told from an email and so I am unsure about this.
Thanks in advance

Hey guys, I have a question about Plymouth - it says the cutoff is 2330 for the 2018 UKCAT. Are the dashed lines under each section supposed to mean something? or is it saying that the overall score is what they look at.

I got a 2500 UKCAT band 3, but 510 for my VR. I'm applying as an international student though for some reason it says I don't even need to sit the UKCAT as an international student. Anyone knows why this is?

1) The dashed lines for each section mean that they are doing UKCAT cut off for overall score only and no longer do cut off scores for total score and each section individually.
2) I believe for international students they just look at your qualifications e.g. GCSEs, A level or equivalent qualifications.
If you want more information on the admissions requirements for international students you could email the med school admissions team.

I've applied to Plymouth for medicine, I got a UKCAT of 2370 (592.5 average), at GCSE I have 6A* 6A and I have achieved A-Levels of AAA in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. on their website it says the UKCAT cut off is 2330, what do you think of my chances of an interview?

Hey guys have you had any clarification as to how Plymouth assesses all applications for interview? Is 2330 really their cutoff? It just seems very low and its weird how theyve already posted the cutoff without assessing the calibre of those applying

They do interviews in the beginning of December and January.
I think international students are generally called for interview in January.

Does anyone know how Plymouth weighs each component (UKCAT, GCSEs, PS etc.). Also I noticed how they give out a variety of offers - from AAB to A*AA...I'm sure most people are expected to achieve AAA, but why are some expected to achieve an A*?

Could they potentially expect resitters to achieve an A*, as compared to others?

2330 is definitely it. Its low because the UKCAT was hard this year and the deciles have already came out. The cut off last year was 2600.
