What makes a good doctor?

GMC 2011




Mbchb selection3
MBChB Selection

The selection system takes a look at:

  • Academic criteria

    • Better of GCSEor AS results (if declared)

    • A levels (or equivalent)

    • (Degree result of graduate)

    • UKCAT result

  • Non-academic criteria

    • Personal statement

    • Interview


Mbchb selection4

  • Top 1000 forms

  • Scored 2 assessors

  • 3rd assessor if 2 or more difference

  • Better of GSCE or AS + A2 + UKCAT

  • UCAS received

MBChB Selection

  • Triaged for minimum criteria

  • Academic scoring

  • +

  • UKCAT

  • Non-academic attributes

  • from

  • the personal statement


Mandatory academic criteria
Mandatory Academic Criteria

For school leavers predicted 3 As, we had >2200 with better than 9 GCSE As

  • GCSE

  • At least 6 grade Bs must be offered including:

    • English

    • Maths

    • Dual Science/Double Science, or Chemistry and Biology


Ranking academic criteria
Ranking Academic Criteria

  • GCSE-level

  • We consider your nine best results

  • If your school “cashes in” AS results, we will consider those instead of your GCSEs

  • We calculate scores for each and take the higher (3 As at AS = 9 A* GCSE)


Ranking academic criteria1
Ranking Academic Criteria

  • A-level

  • Grades AAA – A* no advantage

    • General Studies and Critical Thinking are not acceptable.

    • No Chemistry with Biology and Human Biology.

    • No Chemistry with Maths and Further Maths

We use achieved grades if available (and offer, if made, will be unconditional), otherwise we use predicted grades. Almost all candidates are predicted AAA, which is our standard conditional offer.

MBChB Selection

A levels subjects of successful applicants


Academic ukcat
Academic - UKCAT

  • The typical applicant score is around 2500 (lowest year mean score was 2463 in 2009, highest was 2553 in 2013)

  • A score based on UKCAT performance is combined with a score based on GCSE/AS/A2 performance or prediction

  • A high academic score can compensate for a low UKCAT

  • The mean score of those invited for interview is slightly higher (2724 last year) but there is no “cut off”

  • In 2013 we invited to interview a candidate with a score of 2160, but didn’t invite the candidate with the highest UKCAT score!



Non academic criteria
Non-Academic Criteria

  • Personal Statement
