After the Test

You will receive your results when you leave the test centre. Remember that no score guarantees entry or means failure. The UKCAT is only part of the admissions process; some schools and universities see it as a minor part.

Here are three ways the UKCAT is employed.

  • Borderline cases
    The score may be used to distinguish between two very similar candidates, or to offer interviews to students with high UKCAT scores but low-quality applications.
  • Weighting
    The result may be used as a contributory factor towards an interview or formal offer. Weighting in such decisions varies from 4 to 33%.
  • Threshold score
    This may involve evaluating students’ average scores, or by looking where a student has scored highly or unfavourably.

You now still have to complete your UCAS applications, so think carefully about how your score relates to where you’re applying.

If you get a low UKCAT score, don’t be discouraged. We’ve known students who have gained a place with an average score of 550.
