Pre-clinical medicine: What is the GCSE cut-off?
Your chances of being short-listed rest on a number of factors, although we do rely heavily on BMAT scores during short-listing.
There is no GCSE cut-off, but most applicants hold a broad range of GCSEs in both sciences and arts subjects. You should have top results - that is, a good proportion of 9s/8s (or A*s) - for your application to be competitive. On average, our applicants hold around 80% of GCSEs passes at grades 8 or 9 (A*) and have 8.5 passes at grades 8 or 9 (A*) - although successful applicants may have a higher proportion than this.
