There is no minimum cut off just for the UKCAT score.

 

A-Level Subject Grades (predicted):

We are unable to provide a line by line analysis for each applicant’s
A-level subject grades as it could be possible to identify the individuals
concerned. The information is exempt from disclosure under Section 40 (2)
of the Act -third party personal information. This is an Absolute
exemption therefore there is no requirement to conduct public interest
test. Any information is exempt from disclosure under the Act if it
relates to or is supplied by another individual and disclosure of that
information would contravene any of the principles of the Data Protection
Act (1998).

 

All applicants who have taken A Levels and receive a standard offer must
meet the following: AAA including A in Chemistry and A in another
lab-based science. 

Graduates are required to obtain a 2:1 in their degree and BBB at A-level
including B in Chemistry and another lab-based science.

right under Section 50 of the Act to request an internal review.  All such
