Here you will find key statistics about the admissions process for Medicine MBBS. We publish these on a rolling basis, beginning with the aptitude test cut off scores.

This page will be updated at the end of each admissions cycle, e.g. 2021 cycle data will be published by November 2021. The exception to this is the aptitude cut off scores, which will be published during the admissions cycle, once all interview invites have been sent.

Historic UCAT scores

For reference purposes, we have detailed the overall scores we have required in previous years. Our standard entry requirement is 500 in each section with the overall scores determined each year based on the scores we receive from applications. Occasionally, the required overall score is different for UCAS Clearing. These scores can be seen in brackets below.

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. 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.
