I got a ucat score of only 2330 even after lots of practice. Which universities should I apply to
Most of it depends on how your GCSE grades scale up. If you have 9A*s or more at GCSE, somewhere like Cardiff would be ideal.

I think it is very essential to remain calm during the ucat exam and not to think of getting a high score.I practiced a lot for the ucat, spent entire days preparing for it , made a huge logic list for abstract reasoning , completed books for ucat but in the exam the vr passages were very lengthy,I panicked and was totally exhausted by the time I reached qr section and performed very bad in the exam.
All my hard work of months preparing for the ucat went in vain

You could also take the BMAT to have more choices.

take the BMAT what's your score? BMAT is your best bet, if your score will not get you any interviews I reckon you might be better applying blind to 4 BMAT unis. Are you a contextual?

If you're looking at the interim results then keep in mind that the scores for each decile usually falls when the final results are released. As stated you also have the BMAT. Link to the BMAT wiki here:
https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...about-the-bmat
If your GCSE's are at 8/9 then Cardiff could be an option. If you're predicted A*AA then Plymouth could also be an option.

Taken from Cardiff: We do not have a minimum UCAT or GAMSAT threshold score, however they may be used as part of our selection process."
https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/__data/ass...2021-entry.pdf
They score GCSE's and A-level predictions to shortlist candidates for interview.

Yes, but after interview I recall it needing to be around 2700 for an offer maybe I'm wrong, but I don't want to point someone towards the wrong uni! They had too many applicants with perfect GCSE's if I remember, and this year will be even worse

I think Cardiff only uses the UCAT to differenciate between candidates who have similar interview scores, so a low UCAT score will only disadvantage OP if the UCAT is used as a tiebreaker. There will be more candidates with perfect GCSE's this year as they were given CAG's in 2020.

Well it is possible, but have you looked at the stats for usual UCAT cut offs that they publish on their website?
