UCL does not use the UCAT in its assessment criteria. Therefore, it is not applicable.
"There is no specific BMAT score that would secure an interview in each cycle. We do not offer a guaranteed interview based on BMAT scores. There is not a BMAT cut-off score that is used when assessing an application."

Below is the scoring sheet used by UCL medical school (from 2019).
UCL assess students based on the following criteria:
This is a useful PDF to print off and use during your practice group interview sessions. When practicing with peers, ask each other questions that cover all of these domains (e.g. Why Medicine? Summarise your argument from your BMAT essay in a single sentence). In reality, there won't be time to cover all these domains. However, if you practice your responses to them all you should be covered when it comes to the interview.
These are the criteria UCL assess when it comes to selection criteria and personal statement.
You should aim to prove your ability to meet all the selection criteria in this document in your UCAS application. Some aspects (e.g. BMAT results) will be communicated directly however other aspects (e.g. evidence of teamwork, leadership & communication skills) will need to be evidenced in your personal statement. In this way, you should be able to meet all the criteria.
