Actually, because more people sat the exam, there are around 450 more people scoring above this level than last year

But keep in mind the dentistry students... and as I understand It many more dentistry courses now require the UCAT so its quite possible that this is a contributing factor to the increase in number of UCAT candidates!

They did last year so I would expect so. They've said all interview invites will be sent by the end of next week according to their published timetable.

Is this the 2020 entry ucat cut off? If so it seems very low, that’s why I’m not sure if it’s the right thing!

That is just what is needed for your application to not get a straight rejection, they rank everyone who has met or exceeded this then decide a cut off based on how many they want to interview. That would be great if it were the real cut off!

In 2017-18 the cut off for interview was 2690 (minimum threshold was 2460)
In 2018-19 the cut off for interview was 2630 (minimum threshold was 2470)
Its (reasonably) safe to assume the cut off for this year will be around the 70th-73rd percentile (as stated on their website). So this means the cut off could be around 2610/2630 for this year based off the information provided.

Their website states "Successful applicants can expect by 15.11.2019 to receive an email from the Medical School admissions team (not UCAS) inviting them to attend an interview. Unsuccessful applicants can expect to be notified via UCAS by approximately 20.12.2019."
It is generally around this time they publish their cut off (they are usually the first med school to make this public by a considerable distance)

Last year the invitations did not go out in UCAT order, seemed random. It is a pity we don't have Julian on here giving updates this year, that was great last year.

Looking back at last year’s thread it looks like the UCAT cut point was published before all the interviews were sent out. Published on “what happens to your application”. Worth checking on that page for updates throughout the application process.
