How we use your UCAT score
Potential applicants who score a Band 4 in the Situational Judgement Test will not be considered for entry.
You are required to meet a minimum UCAT score as part of our entry requirements from 2023 entry. Our minimum UCAT total cut-off score for those applying for 2024 entry is 2470. Any applicant applying with a score below the cut-off will not be considered with the exclusion of FLAG PLUS applicants (see below).
Once all the scores are received we rank them, divide the cohort into deciles (ten equal groups) and allocate a score. We also allocate a score to your situational judgement banding. The points are then added to your academic score to contribute towards your final ranking for shortlisting and possible invitation to one of our Assessment Days. The individual sections of the total score an applicant achieved may be looked at again when final decisions are made where there are applicants with the same ranked score and limited places left to offer.
Ultimately, it depends on your competition as your UCAT score is ranked…
