And are you certain they weren't contextual and that batches were done in descending order and not randomly?
contextual i am not sure about, but reading last years thread it did seem like those with higher ranked ucats were called first

Even King's don't know that yet, as it is based on the scores of the people who apply
Makes sense, thank you!

Hi - home student, scored 3000 B3 and am interested in applying to Kings (KCL) I have full points for GCSES (all A* or 8). Based on KCL scoring system (if same as last year) this totals 130pts (I've no points for SJT and none for WP).
Others have said they got an interview last year with 2790 B3 & full points for GCSEs, and think they were part of the last batch invited to interview, which I calculated as roughly 120pts as it would've been 8th decile.
I know the cut-off may not be 120pts this year but with a 10point cushion (as I have 130pts) do you think this will be enough?
I would be very careful considering you got a band 3

Hey,
I got seven 9/8s, two 7s and a 6 at GCSEs ( 7 a stars )
AS: 4 As (Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths)
Predicted: A*A*A (Biology, Chemistry,Maths)
Ucat: 2940 Band 2

What are my chances? I know I lost a few points because of my GCSEs but surely my UCAT will compensate? Thanks

A-level predicted: A*A*A*
UCAT: 2880 Band 1
I go to a state school but my polar quntile is 5 so I don't think I'm contextual?? I'm not 100% sure

Does anyone know roughly what the cut off was last year in that 150 point system they used?

Not contextual nor do I have any WP flags

Hi and thanks for taking your time to read this. Would I have made the interview cut-off last year, also is it too risky or should I apply to KCL this year?
I think anyone with a band 3 would be taking a big risk considering how ucat heavy kings is

Hey I have a question. If my polar quintile is 5 does that mean my GCSE scores get halved?

This is what they said in their FOI for reference:

"GCSE points were awarded according to the number of A*s achieved at GCSE (subject is not considered). Less than 5 scored 0, 5 scored 10, 6 scored 20, 7 scored 30, 8+ scored 40. Scores were adjusted according relevant to the quintile GCSE attainment of the school. If the school performance was one of the lowest two quintiles then we also counted A grades achieved at GCSE towards the A* count mentioned above. For schools in the 3rd quintile, each A grade is considered equivalent to 0.5 of an A*. For schools in the top two quintiles, no adjustment is made."

Hiya! I saw that this was a forum for the Med 2022 entry for Kings and I was wondering if there was anyone that could give me an idea of if I had a chance of getting in if I applied this year?
My GCSEs: 4 8s, 3 7s, 2 6s and 1 5
A Level Predicted: Maths (A), Biology (A), Chemistry (A*) and EPQ (A*/A)
UCAT: 2460 score and Band 2
I know the score is low, I'm disappointed in myself for it but I wanted to know if I still had a chance. I'm also aware that I'm probably lower on competitive scales but I was wondering about my chances if I did choose to apply - would I at least get called in for an interview?
(To Note; I come into Polar Quintile 3 but I don't think I come in high for rankings in the Extended Med course or contexuals)

Thank you!!

If you really want to go then go for it. Last night I saw this TikTok where someone got into Kings last year with a UCAT score of 2400. But he said that he made sure that his personal statement was strong and he did a quite bit of volunteering & work experience. I will admit it’s risky but if you don’t want to have the regret of not applying I guess do it.

I found out recently that for a home non contextual applicant you can score a maximum of 150, SJT is worth 10 of those 150 points so about 6.66% of the application is SJT, whereas 100 points was given to the UCAT score itself. Assuming they keep a similar system I'll probably still take a shot cause I'm hearing 130-135 points was probably safe last year.
