Hi all, this is my first post, I have previously not felt I have had much of importance to say but I just got this email regarding how the UKCAT will be used at Kings and I could do with some advice! Kings grad entry was going to be my first choice for 2008 entry but now I dont know if I can take that risk, I emailed my UKCAT results to the admissions tutor and got this reply: 'We will be having a cut off score for the graduate entry programme and we will only be interviewing the top scoring 150 applicants. We do not yet know what this cut off score will be as this is the first year we have used the UKCAT for graduate entry, I am subsequently unable to comment on your UKCAT scores below. We do not automatically consider graduate entry applicants for the 5 year programme. We only do this if you attend an interview for the 4 year and it is decided you would be more suitable for the 5 or 6 year programme.' My UKCAT scores were: Verbal Reasoning 670 Quantitative Reasoning 630 Abstract Reasoning 650 Decision Analysis 690 So pretty average but I have good A levels, a good degree in biology, have done alot of work experience and will have a masters. It seems madness that these will not be taken into account and the first screening will purely be on UKCAT results and anyone who is not in the top 150 is going to be ignored without a look in. Although I can see with the competition for places they are able to do this and still find perfectly capable applicants. This leads me to my dilemma, should I bother with the grad program, it is possible I wont even be considered for grad or 5 year courses, or should I play it safe and apply to the 5 years? Is it possible the admissions tutor was trying to scare away applicants who were not 100% keen on Kings and do you think competition for Kings will be less this year due to Imperials 4 year course and maybe with my unremarkable scores I do still have a chance? Either way im confused and seem to be spending loads of time weighing up pros and cons to the point that its making me miserable so any outside opinions would be great!
