There is no UCAT cut off, Leicester score a combination of you cutting GCSEs and past cut-offs are on their website

As before, nobody knows yet. The cut off was 55 last year, so you are well above it, but the same issues re possible enforced defferals applies to all med schools

Hi I heard that if you do medicine at Leicester uni,and if you fail a particular exam then you have to repeat the whole year again rather than just redo the exam.Is this true?

Hi there, if your bang on the cut off for last year it would be risky to apply seeing as there will be offer holders from last year doing reisits in autumn or summer who will be deferred for 2021 entry so they may raise the cut off score for this year to reduce numbers.

Sorry, I seem to have miscalculated it and I actually get 58.5, would this get me an interview if 55 was the cut off last year?

As mentioned before we dont know how much they'll raise the cut off by but your score is quite strong and well above last years cut off so if you like the uni then I'd say go for it it wont be as risky as 55. 😊
