Historic UCAT scores

The five-year MBBS programme is subject to overseas and graduate number controls. For overseas students, the Government limits our overseas places to approximately 9% of our cohort. Also, to ensure we are offering enough places to undergraduate applicants (and because we have a graduate-only programme too), we have a cap of approximately 25%* on graduate students. In the main cycle, to ensure we are interviewing an appropriate number of applicants to remain within these number controls, we rank each category separately to determine the UCAT cut off scores. The cut off score may differ between categories, like in 2021, but could also be the same, as seen in 2020.

Within each category, we invite to interview all eligible applicants who have achieved the UCAT cut off score for their category.

*Accurate for the 2021 cycle. May change with each admissions cycle.
