A100 Academic ability and UKCAT scoring 2018

A100 Scoring of Applications Document 2018

We do not know what score will be required to be invited to interview as it depends on the quantity and quality of applications we receive.

Below is information regarding scoring for the A100 Medicine Course for 2018 entry.

In considering your application, we will calculate a score for your academic ability, up to a maximum of 32 points, based on your UCAS form.

If you have predicted A-Levels (or equivalent) we will score 8 GCSE qualifications.

If you have achieved A-Levels (or equivalent) we will score 5 GCSE qualifications and 3 A-Levels.

If you have a predicted or achieved degree we will score 4 GCSE qualifications, 3 A-Levels and your degree prediction or achieved classification.

Your academic score will be combined with a score based on your UKCAT results, again up to 32 points, giving a maximum possible score of 64 points overall.

Your combined score for your academic achievement and UKCAT will determine whether you are invited for interview.  In order to distinguish between 'borderline' applicants, we may also take into account your 'personal qualities' based on your personal statement and reference.

Because applications are ranked, there is no set score which guarantees an interview. The threshold will depend on the quality and quantity of applications we receive. We reserve the right to change our scoring systems at any time in order to rank applicants appropriately.

Please download a copy of our A100 Scoring of Applications Document 2018 to see how your application will be scored.

We will take into account mitigating circumstances such as health problems or educational disruption if you tell us about them and provide evidence before 1st October 2017.
