Hey, i'm thinking of applying here aswell I got 2670 b2 with A*AA predicted but also thinking of cardiff and liverpool as i think they are a bit more favourable to a lower ucat in comparison to like mcr or bristol
Hi guys, was just doing some research and the cut off for 2023 entry was around 2650 and was a huge jump from the previous year’s cut off. Does anyone believe that another huge jump in UCAT cut off will be likely ? Or was it just the odd high increase due to the previous year’s applicants grade inflations?

Most likely due to the inflation of grades but it just depends on the cohort applying, anything could happen but I doubt there’ll be another big jump

Hey, so would it be risky applying there with 2770 B2, I noticed last years jump was like 150 :frown:? I'm a contextual applicant tho so hopefully that helps

Think you should be very safe with that
Do you think 2670, B1 is risky ?

No it’s not. Liverpool don’t have a cut-off, Cardiff interview a lot lower. There are options for low UCAT applicants. Leeds for example is worth a risk because no data is available and high UCAT applicants won’t want to risk a choice on it when they’ll definitely get interviews elsewhere, and it’s holistic. Dundee only put 40% onto UCAT. Belfast still a possibility if strong GCSE as it’s almost all based on those and very little on UCAT. Sheffield open day said strong GCSE can compensate for low UCAT. Birmingham too. Some universities recognise that UCAT scores might be based on high ability but might be lucky guesses, and with GCSE we all sit the same exam. Some look more at the type of person they’re going to train. All applications are a risk. Even a 3000 plus score to high UCAT universities is a risk. These scores only get you to the interview stage. Plymouth though is only looking at the UCAT so definitely risky. Although it’s not Russel Group which may deter some people.
