2019-09-20

The UCAT 2019 interim statistics have been published. This means you can have a go at predicting what your scores are worth, how well you performed compared to others and if you might have met the required scores for 2020 entry to your dream medical school.

What does ‘UCAT Interim Scores’ actually mean?

The UCAT interim scores are the average combined scores of the students who have sat the UCAT up to a fixed period during the examination season of a particular year. These scores are published by the UCAT Consortium in the middle of the UCAT testing season every year. 

These scores include the results of all 12,138 candidates who sat the UCAT before 6th September 2019 and records the average for all 5 sections.

Why are the UCAT Interim Scores important?

These scores relate to how well your medical school application will perform as they indicate where you will rank in the percentiles at the end of the testing season. Therefore, for the majority of medical school applicants, these scores will dictate the outcome of their chosen medical school’s selection process in deciding whether an application is accepted or not. Some medical schools have specific entry requirements that must be met and a great UCAT score is one of these requirements.

What do the UCAT Interim Scores include?

Each cognitive subtest has a scaled score range between 300-900 with a total score combined across the Verbal Reasoning section, Decision Making section, Quantitative Reasoning section, and Abstract Reasoning section, between 1200-3600.

For your convenience we have collected the data from this year’s interim scores and put them into eye catching and easy to read tables below:


Here we can see the Verbal Reasoning section is the lowest average which usually happens every year whilst Quantitative Reasoning is the highest.

How did the SJT section average?

The Situational Judgement Section is not scored like the other four sections as your score is placed into a Band from 1 - 4 instead. 1 is the best band and 4 is the not so good band. 

A decline in candidates achieving Band 1 this year compared to the last two years can be seen here, whilst a dramatic increase in the majority of candidates being placed into Band 2 is observed.

What percentile have you made it into?

The next table displays the decile rank taken from the Total Score of UCAT candidates. Every decile shows the collective exam performance, not including the Situational Judgement section, of a 10% representative of candidates. The higher the decile, the better the percentile and your chance of getting into a great medical school.

  

Important Note: All of these scores are provisional at the moment. Therefore, if you have not quite made it into the percentile you need for your desired medical school, there is still a chance you might make it.

Do these scores really reflect what the final scores will look like?

The scores from interim to final can dramatically change either way. Over the past two years, the final scores have been lower than the interim scores but it is best to keep all possibilities in mind until confirmed.

The final averaged scores are expected to be published on the 7th October 2019. Join up to our email list to keep informed about important information.
