UCAT deadlines

UCAS application deadline Friday 15th October 2021:

UCAS is an organisation that you apply to medical schools through. This is where you will pick what medical schools you’d like to attend, hear back from those medical schools and you will be expected to produce a personal statement of a high standard. This personal statement should include your motivation for studying medicine, reflections on work experience and extra curriculum activities and achievements. The UCAS personal statement tends to worry a lot of people so we designed a course to help take that stress away.

We also offer a Personal Statement Content Check service; two experts give you actionable comments on your personal statement to ensure it follows the expectations of admissions tutors (feedback within 4 days).

UCAS application deadline

Final results in early November:

In most UCAT testing centres you will get a print-out of your scores as soon as you’ve finished sitting the and you’ll be able to access them on your online UCAT Consortium account. However, it won’t be until early November that your final UCAT score will be directly sent to all of your chosen medical schools.
