So for me, with 2 A*s (one is EPQ) and 2 As, my A-level score would be 14/16 I think. Or if the EPQ isn't included it'd be 10/12.
My GCSE score is 22/24.
My UCAT score is 7.5/12 ( I think it's this if 2600-2700 is worth 7.5)
How would my A-Levels be added to the UCAT score?
I feel like I'm not making any sense, so apologies in advance aha, I think I've been scrolling thru tsr for too long.
We have the same GCSE score, how do you know what your UCAT score is? I also have achieved grades and idk how they're used

I found this from last year's thread as well.

I saw this too. I have no idea how their scoring system works.

So I'm not completely sure if it's right, but this is what they were going off last year it looks like. I've copied someone's post from last year so sorry for copying!

Spoiler:

For the selection of applicants for interview: 2/3 for GCSE and 1/3 for UCAT.


So 24 for GCSE and 12 for UCAT (Total 36)



GCSEs: the School scores 6 GCSEs with Maths, English Language, Biology and
Chemistry being compulsory. The highest two grades in the remaining subjects
are included to make up 6 in total. The grades are given a score:
A* (9/8) = 4,
A(7) =3,
B (6) = 2,
C (5) = 1.
Predicted A levels are not scored.
Achieved A Levels are scored. A* = 4, A = 3, B = 2.
So, the total score for students with the achieved grades is 48


UCAT Score: There is no cut off score for the UCAT and they accept all four SJT bands
(1-4). The total possible range of UCAT scores are divided into equal deciles
from 3600 to 1200 with points, in 0.5 gradations awarded.

3500-3600 = 12,

3400-3500= 11.5,

3300-3400= 11,

3200-3300= 10.5,

3100-3200= 10,

3000-3100= 9.5,

2900-3000= 9,

2800-2900= 8.5,

2700-2800= 8,

2600-2700=7.5,

2500-2600= 7,

2400-2500= 6.5,

2300-2400= 6,

2200-2300= 5.5,

2100-2200=5,

2000-2100=4,5,

1900-2000=4,

1800-1900=3.5,

1700-1800=3,

1600-1700=2.5,

1500-1600=2,

1400-1500=1.5,

1300-1400 =1,

1200-1300= 0.5,

less than 1200=0

The applicant students then are ranked according to their total scores and the top score are invited for interview according to how many students they plan to invite.
Good luck all.

I don't know if some of the info is confirmed though. Also, the thing about achieved A-Level applicants having a total of 48 seems a bit iffy since that would suggest they are being assessed separately to everyone else with a total of 36.

Edit: Hi, Sheery_R , would you be able to confirm whether this information is right and where you got it from? Sorry for disturbing you! : )

They will only score 3 A levels, as that is their requirement.
They add GCSE and A level score together, so you would max out at 24 and then add this to UCAT

You would be very welcome, I'm sure
A few people hang around later in the cycle, but most move on to their exciting new life after they get their offer, just leaving the old and boring (plus a few dedicated bright young things) to repeat the same thing a thousand times :lol:

Thank you for finding this KA_P Do you happen to know what the cut-off is out of 36? I score 29.5/36 do you reckon that will be enough or too low?

I'm just so paranoid about unis that include English Language in their scoring. Idk what happened in the exam because I was getting 8/9 consistently, then came out with a 5 which I remarked and got a 6. It was a different story for literature, I was getting 3s and came out with a 9. GCSEs are a scam 🙄

If it's the same as last year, about 29 and above should be fine for non- WP applicants. I think it's lower for WP applicants. 29.5 should be fine, but I'd be assuming that from last year's cohort.

I'm thinking it might be 9.5 tbh but I wouldn't be too sure either, for all we know the ucat score scale might be wrong, since Aston hasn't actually given us too much information on how the ucat scores are scaled
