As I write this we are still awaiting decile information for this year’s UKCAT cohort. Last year they published an interim table at the beginning of September but they have not this year. I suspect that this is because scores were unusually high in 2013 and UKCAT were trying to reassure the 2014 cohort that their scores were ok!
However – here’s a rough (and subject to change!) guide of where various UKCAT scores could take you. I have divided the scores into rough quartiles based on 2014 scores.
This score will probably place you in the bottom quarter of UKCAT applicants. It’s not good news but it isn’t necessarily the end of the road for you either. Universities you should consider are the BMAT ones –
- Brighton and Sussex
- University College London
And universities where they don’t use any entrance test
And universities where they only use the UKCAT in a tie break situation
2300 to 2500
This score would put you slightly below average. You can consider all of the universities already listed but also –
- Manchester IF you have some contextual data (you have been subject to some disadvantage)
- Queens Belfast
2500 to 2700
This score would put you just above average and opens up a lot of further options. Universities who specifically for a score in this range or above are –
- St George’s
Other universities which don’t specify scores but whose published policy seems to imply that a score within this range or above would be very advantageous are –
- Hull York
- University of East Anglia
This score puts you in the top range and means that nearly all options are open to you. Places where that top score are specifically asked for (or it is strongly implied!) are –
- Manchester (without a contextual flag)
- Kings College London
Some universities are so vague about their UKCAT policy that it’s worth a try!
