If you do very well in your UKCAT then the world is your oyster and you’re not restricted at all in your university applications! These universities won’t look at candidates with a poor UKCAT so if yours is good then these are open options for you. However – not all of these universities have high UKCAT standards – they just consider the UKCAT in a much more significant way in their application proceedures.
- Barts and the London School of Medicine- Cut off at 2400, candidates won’t be considered with a UKCAT below this
- Hull York Medical school- Cut off at 450 per section or 2400. If you get a UKCAT of 2800 or above you are guaranteed an interview
- Imperial School of Medicine London- The cut off changes annually but in 2013 it was 640 (average)
- Plymouth University Peninsula School of Medicine – The ‘target’ (cut off) score changes annually and is based on sections. In 2012 it was 530 VR, 570 QR, 560 AR and 570 DA
- University of Sheffield School of Medicine- If you meet their minimum academic requirements and are in the top 20% of UKCAT scores you will get a first round interview. They’re unlikely to consider applications with a UKCAT below 2600.
- St George’s University of London- Cut off of 500 in each section
- University of Warwick, Warwick Medical School- No official threshold but in practice they concede it is around 2660
