Its so annoying, why are they so vague. :mad: They dont reply to e-mails either.
YEP No idea at the moment how to get my score. I don't want to apply blindly. Why do they except we do this?

i think my calc is about 73, based on this i took from 2021 thread:

  • gcse's are 30 points- 9/8 grade = 5 points, 7 = 4, 6 = 3 etc for "based upon the best six achieved grades at gcse "
  • ucat- 40 points- top decile gives you 40 points, each decile down takes away 4 points, so if you're in the 9th decile you get 40, 8th = 36, 7th = 32 etc
  • sjt- 15 points- band 1 gives 15 points, band 2 = 10, band 3 = 5
  • contextual- 15 points if you qualify

i have 7 a* so i score the max 30
i think my ucat score of 2690 will give me 28 points..i think!
Stj band 1 = 15
no contextual = 0

so thats 73/100, right.
hold up this is how to calculate?!?!?

No, ofc idk if this is right, but from previous threads each decile is 4 points, so 1st decile is 4, 2nd is 8, 3rd is 12 etc etc. It does make sense bc there are 10 deciles (anyone above 9th decile=10th decile) so the max points would be 10*4=40, and HYMS scores UCAT out of 40.

I'd imagine it's only used in borderline cases? Did they ever mention considering UCAT post interview?

Does anyone know how many places HYMS has for international applicants as compared to no. of applications received? Also I got 2930 Band 1, good academics but not so much work experience. Do you think it's worth applying or will the lack of a lot of work experience put me at huge disadvantage?
I have a few days shadowing+ one month long internship at a child development centre (mostly online)+ BSMS virtual work experience. I am planning on getting more work exp. in the coming months for the interview

Calculate your score using this https://www.hyms.ac.uk/medicine/appl...tion-procedure.

I personally think a score of 75 and above should be safe bc last year's cut off was ~69. This is just a guess though!
