After the test

You’ll 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
    It may be used as a contributory factor towards an interview, or formal offer. Weighting in the decision varies from 4% to 33%
  • Threshold score
    This may be evaluating students’ average scores, or by looking where you’ve scored highly or unfavourably

You’ve still got to complete your application(s), so think carefully about how your score relates to where you’re applying.

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