Medical & Dental Schools UCAT Cut-Off Scores in 2024 for 2025 entry - UK Universities

A guide to help select a university based upon your UCAT score (updated for 2024 entry - as best as we can) and application in 2024. Here you can find out about what courses require the ucat, and how it is used in shortlisting applicants for interviews. These are all of the ucat requirements for universities in 2024. 

 

We know how difficult it is to choose which four Medical or Dental Schools to apply to.

✅ A Quick Message

We have created this UCAT Universities Guide to help students make a more informed decision on UCAT schools while detailing how each university uses the UCAT. We endeavour to keep this updated for 2023 (2024 entry), but we would always recommend checking each medical school's website for the most accurate and latest information. We assume no responsibility or liability for any errors or omissions on this page - please let us know if you notice any errors - we are trying our best! 

 

✅ How Is My UCAT Score Used?

Each university will use the UCAT score in different ways to try and shortlist candidates for the UCAT.

 

✅ Generally, there are three different ways that universities are likely to use the UCAT score:

  1. Cut off scores for each section/overall score for the 2023 entry (using UCAT/GCSE/Contextual etc)

  2. All top-ranking candidates will be shortlisted for interview

  3. Used along with every other aspect of the application to decide whom to invite for an interview.

 

You can see how each university will use the UCAT score here

Remember to check out our UK Medical School Guide for more information on each university and how they use different aspects of the UCAT and interviews in the application process. Some of these universities have ucat cut off scores for 2024 entry, which you will be able to see below. These UKCAT medical schools that require the ukcat have all outlined how they use the UCAT within the decision-making application process. There is no direct minimum ucat cut off for medicine, but each university has its requirements.

Birmingham Medical School Selection Process 2023

We will apply the following selection process to all standard applicants:

  • Applications will receive an overall score, which is the sum of weighted scores for each of three components: academic, UCAT and contextual

  • The inclusion of a contextual element to the score replaces our previous method of assigning 20% of interview places to contextual applicants

  • The weighting will be: 45% academic, 40% UCAT and 15% contextual. 

  • We will not score your personal statement, but you must offer evidence of commitment to medicine (see 'Preparing to Apply')


Scoring an application

An application score is generated from GCSE and UCAT results as well as a contextual element as follows:


GCSE

Each application will receive a score for academic achievement based on results in seven GCSE (or equivalent) subjects. The subjects that will be scored are: English (both English Language and English Literature), Mathematics (or one, but not both, of Methods in Mathematics and Applications of Mathematics), Biology and Chemistry (or dual award science), plus two additional GCSEs in any subject. We will not exempt anyone from requiring a score for all identified subjects.


For the subjects specified above a minimum of grade B/6 must be offered and the scores allocated to the different grades are as follows:

  • 8 or 9/A* = 4

  • 7/A = 2

  • 6/B = 1


For each of the two unspecified subjects, a score of 2 will be allocated when an 8 or 9/A*grade has been obtained. Lower grades will not receive a score.


The total GCSE score will be scaled to a maximum of 4.5.


Because we rank applicants according to a total score, we cannot define a GCSE grade profile that will be acceptable.


UCAT

There is no minimum UCAT cut-off score. Your total UCAT score from the four subtests (i.e. excluding the band result for the Situational Judgment Test, SJT), will be ranked among those for all applicants. The scores will be segregated into deciles and we will allocate our own score to each decile. For example, the top 10% of applicants’ scores will be in the top decile and will receive a maximum score of 4.0 in our process [this changes every year depending on the deciles]. 


The band score for the Situational Judgment Test (SJT) component of UCAT will be used at the interview stage.


For 2022 entry:  >8.0/10 for an interview for non-WP participants, minimum UCAT score of 2850 and minimum GCSE score of 4.0


Contextual Requirements

Applicants must have attended a contextual school or have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) during their secondary education to receive a score for this element.


Consideration of contextual information is not new but from 2020/21 we have incorporated the contextual element into the algorithm used to score all applicants, instead of setting aside interview places for contextual applicants. We also incorporate POLAR4 data into our process.

We describe elsewhere the mechanism we use for identifying a contextual school and an explanation of POLAR4 (see ‘Entry Requirements MBChB (5 year)’).

Contextual School

If you studied at a school that meets our contextual criteria for GCSEs and/or A Levels, you will receive a score for the contextual element. Applicants from state (non-independent) schools in Wales will receive a contextual score. Please contact your school provider or search for your school on gov.uk for more information.

POLAR4

You can retrieve your POLAR4 quintile from the Office for Students website: OFS Postcode Lookup.


Interview

Selection for interview is determined by ranking applicants according to the total application score (combination of GCSE, UCAT and contextual scores, with a maximum of 10). We expect to interview over 1,100 standard applicants.


If this ranking does not allow us to identify an exact cut-off, we will rank applicants with the same score according to their UCAT results (focusing primarily on the score for Verbal Reasoning).

Selection process

Stage 1: Application screening against the standard academic criteria

All applications will be screened to determine whether they meet the standard academic criteria. Applications which do not meet the minimum eligibility and academic criteria will not be progressed to the next stage.


Stage 2: UCAT ranking

Applicants who meet the minimum academic criteria will be ranked according to their UCAT scores. A UCAT threshold will be set depending on the number of interviews to be held.


Applicants who meet the UCAT threshold will be invited to interview. The UCAT threshold set by the University may differ from year to year as it is dependent on the scores achieved by those who apply to us in each admissions cycle. Any candidate scoring within band 4 in the Situational Judgement Test will be automatically rejected.


The UCAT threshold will be extended for candidates who meet specific widening participation criteria or have successfully completed the Widening Access to Medicine Programme at Edge Hill University.


Stage 3: Interview

All candidates who progress from stage 2 will be required to attend interview. Interviews for September 2023 entry will take place virtually via Microsoft Teams.


🚩  SJT Band 4 = rejection.

How Edinburgh Score The Application:

The academic portion of each application to our Medicine programme is scored independently by two members of the Admissions Team. The academic scores outlined in the table below are doubled, to provide an academic score out of a total of 20 points. The academic portion of each application constitutes 25% of the overall application score.


Once the academic part of an application is scored, we await confirmation of each applicant's UCAT total score and Situational Judgement Test banding directly from UCAT. These are weighted separately, with the UCAT total score awarding 17.5% of the total application score and the SJT banding awarding 7.5%. Applicants who are awarded Band 4 in the SJT or whose UCAT total score falls below our cut-off score for that cycle are removed from the selection process (with the exception of Plus Flag applicants, who are exempt from the UCAT total score cut-off).


The total of these three components (50% of the overall application score) is used to shortlist for invitations to our Assessment Day (per fee category). The Assessment Day (Interview) score provides the final 50% of the overall application score. This final overall score is then used to shortlist for offers (also per fee category).

Kings UCAT Cut Off 2023 for 2024 Entry

No King's UCAT cut-off score - but it is worth noting they average your score across the subtests and give that more consideration than individual subtest scores, and they consider SJT scores too. There is no cut-off score as UCAT is used in combination with the rest of your application in the shortlisting process. 


It is believed that Interview Selection is made up of a score that is made up out of 170:

  • UCAT /100

  • GCSEs /40

  • SJT /10

  • Contextual /20 


👉🏼 LOWEST UCAT Score INVITED TO INTERVIEW [ie Kings College London UCAT Cut Off Score]:

  • 2020 Entry: 2824 (non-WP), 2751 (WP)


✅ King's College Medicine Selection Process

For ranking in previous cycles, applications which met the entry requirements were ranked according to their UCAT score (average score and SJT band) compared to other applicants with improvement given for GCSE results (number of A*s) and School performance as well as an improvement on ranking if considered a Widening Participation applicant. 


Interview selection was scored out of 170 – UCAT 100 + SJT 10 + GCSE 40 + WP 20


UCAT Score

UCAT percentile rank (compared to King's applications) multiplied by 100.


✅ SJT Scoring

Points added according to the SJT Band: 

  • SJT Band 1 = 10 points

  • SJT Band 2 = 5 points

  • SJT Band 3/4 = 0 points


✅ GCSE

For GCSEs, points were awarded according to the number of A*s achieved at GCSE (subject is not considered). Less than 5 scored 0, 5 scored 10, 6 scored 20, 7 scored 30, 8+ scored 40. Scores were adjusted according to the GCSE attainment quintile of the school. 

  • School in bottom two quintiles, then A = A*

  • School in the third quintile, then A = 0.5A*

  • School in top two quintiles, then A=A 


✅ A-levels

Predicted or achieved A Level grades or equivalent have been used to assess whether applicants would meet or exceed the minimum entrance requirements for the course.  Thereafter such grades have not been factored into the ranking process which takes place afterward and has determined who is and is not invited to interview for the course. 


Post-interviews, interview score has been the main factor used to decide who offers have been made to.
