Scoring applications

Academic scoring

In considering your application, we will calculate a score for your academic ability, up to a maximum of 32 points, based on your UCAS form.

  • If you have predicted A-levels (or equivalent) we will score your application on 8 GCSE qualifications
  • If you have achieved A-levels (or equivalent) we will score your application on 5 GCSE qualifications and 3 A-levels

If you have been unable to complete the number of GCSEs required for our scoring purposes, please ask your school or college to email us at medfound@le.ac.uk before 1 October 2019. We may be able to take this into account, depending on the reason.

Shortlisting for interview

Your academic score will be combined with a score based on your UCAT results, again up to 32 points, giving a maximum possible score of 64 points overall.

Your combined score will determine whether you are invited for interview. In order to distinguish between 'borderline' applicants, we may also take into account your 'personal qualities' based on your personal statement and reference.

Because applications are ranked, there is no set score which guarantees an interview. The threshold will depend on the quality and quantity of applications we receive. We reserve the right to change our scoring systems at any time in order to rank applicants appropriately.

We will take into account mitigating circumstances such as health problems or educational disruption if you tell us about them and provide evidence before 1 October 2019.
