Yeah it's good that you're applying strategically, that was my downfall last year!

You meet the minimum GCSE entry requirements (your score is 17 and the minimum needed is 15 if I'm not mistaken), and I think your UCAT has a good chance of getting an interview. Of course I'm not an expert though, but if I were you, I would consider applying here for sure.

Hi, Do you think SJT band 3 and GCSE grades of 2*9,3*8,3*7,2*6 will be a disadvantage to me when applying to Liverpool with a UCAT score of 2930?When they say (Overall score and Situational Judgement Test/Home Students) it would not mean that people with higher bands get preference over the score.

when it says that a ucat score of 605 in 2019 was a 'competitive' score, what does that quite mean?
sorry if its a bit of a clear question but I just want to make sure

When they used to use UCAT to rank before, their cutoffs used to be around mid 2400s. I think it will definitely rise this year but hopefully it would be ok-there will be an element of risk though

I think the traditionally lower UCAT requirement med schools are going to get squeezed by applicants who are too nervous to apply to the traditionally higher UCAT requirement med schools due to recent high cut offs.
Somebody with 2750-2850 would often take a punt on Newcastle, Bristol or Glasgow. They may well look at what was needed last year and apply to Manchester, Southampton, Sheffield, SGUL, and the people with 2570-2700 may well now look at Manchester, Southampton, SGUL and Sheffield and decide to apply to Liverpool, Edge Hill, ARU, Plymouth and UEA. So it is a domino effect downwards, and I think the highest requirement schools may see cut offs come down a little, and the usually lowest scoring schools see them go up. How much, I don't know, as there are so many things it depends on that we don't know - applicant numbers, deciles, number of places used by deferrals and held for TAGs resitters, and mainly number of interviews to be held.

I think the hierarchy of scores needed will remain similar - Bristol, Newcastle, Glasgow (and St Andrews, who did seem to jump up a tier), then Sheffield, Manchester, Southampton, SGUL, then Liverpool, Edge Hill, ARU, Plymouth, UEA, but what the boundaries/spread for each will be, I have no idea.

If we look at ARU, it stayed pretty similar last year, at about 2430 for non-local applicants, but UEA seemed to be in the 2600s, Plymouth used A levels to cut down numbers. Sheffield went up 80 points, SGUL 140. I suspect Manchester to sit somewhere around those two, now they have removed their top third UCAT interview pledge, and think the lower UCAT requirement unis are likely to be mid 2500s. But I don't know that, and as I say, depends mostly on applicant numbers (likely to be up) and interview numbers (who knows). Most med schools have not released last year's cut offs/figures yet, and I assume it is because they are afraid it will put people off. They may, therefore, decide to interview more people than usual this year, to keep cut offs down. But this then wrecks interview to offer ratios (Liverpool's was pretty low last year).

So to answer your question, it is not so much is it worth applying to Liverpool, but rather do you have other options that are safer? I am not sure there are many options for those with what are not really lower UCATs, but are going to appear that way in this crazy cycle? I think Liverpool will have one of the lower UCAT cut offs, but med schools may decide to interview more, or fewer, people for various reasons, which will influence this, and I do not know which way they will go!

Excellent reading of the situation.

Another factor that may come into play - which I don't think has been mentioned on this thread - is that the September BMAT exam has been cancelled, meaning anyone applying to those 7 BMAT universities will be applying blind. That will definitely deter people, meaning even more pressure on UCAT universities.

If the number of people taking UCAT jumps from 32,000 to 34,000 then all other things being equal (same bell curve, which looks to be the case given the interim results) then a 2500 cut off university will cut off at 2550 this year using UCAT scoring alone.

It's actually going from 34k to an anticipated 37k... so a little higher than that.

It is the “all other things being equal” that we do not have the answer to!
More or fewer interviews, for any number of reasons, is likely to be a key factor 😊

can anyone who got an interview last year say what score out of 108 they got in order to receive the interview invitation?
Hi i got an interview last year and had an offer for deferred entry, I got 104 points and i got one but my friend had 96 and still got an interview. I heard they're ranking applicants completely differently this year though!
