Our expedition of UK medical schools has taken us, this week, to Wales and Northern Ireland!
Cardiff University, School of Medicine
Cardiff require applicants to take the UKCAT but only use the score in a few occasions. They describe using UKCAT scores in a tie-break situation where, at the end of the process, two similar candidates may have their scores compared to make a final decision.
Queen’s University Belfast, Faculty of Medicine
The university allocates you a score of between 1 and 6 for your UKCAT. This is added to your total ‘score’ from which they decide who to invite for interview. Bear in mind that an A* at GCSE is worth 4 points so even a maximum UKCAT won’t have anywhere near as much weight as a hatful of good GCSE results!
Swansea University, School of Medicine
Swansea university is not part of the UKCAT consortium. Applicants must take the GAMSAT. It is a graduate only programme.
We have over 100 free UKCAT questions for you to try. We also have over 2000 fully updated UKCAT questions, with the same screen layout as the real thing. The service reflects all the new changes for the current year. We also run a 1 day Crammer Course to help boost your UKCAT score – book here!
