Please choose which area you are applying to:


UK Medical and Dental Schools have a tough job because there are only a few places but with so many good students with top GSCE and A-Level grades all applying.

Furthermore, they all have the necessary work experience and highly polished Personal Statements. Therefore, all the admission teams at every UK Medical/Dental School use the results of an aptitude test.

There are 2 tests with the majority using The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). The remaining few use The BioMedical Admissions Test ( BMAT).

You can only take the UCAT once in that year’s application cycle


For Medicine there are currently thirty three medical schools in the United Kingdom where students can study for a medical degree to become a qualified doctor.

30 use the UCAT test with the remaining 3 using the BMAT test

For Dentistry ( undergraduate entry) there are currently fourteen dental schools in the United Kingdom where students can study for a dental degree to become a qualified dentist

You can see the full list of Schools and how each individual university actually use your scores as each university places a different emphasis on the result HERE

As always – please check with each individual Medical or Dental School before you apply as their criteria can change each year.

UCAT Deciles

Each year UCAT scores using marks from the 5 sections are then are sorted into deciles, with each one representing 10% of candidates. For example, a UCAT score in the 1st decile means that you have scored in the bottom 10% of all UCAT takers. A score in the 10th decile means you are in the top 10%. In this way, you know where you are amongst all the candidates.

DON’T FORGET... You still also have the option of applying to BMAT universities for a 2nd chance.
