Are you applying to medical school this year? Win up to £500 in Amazon vouchers by filling in surveys for an academic research study about medical school admissions.

The UK Medical Applicant Cohort Study aims to help future applicants from all backgrounds apply to medical school.

Taking part will not affect your medical school application, but you may find it helpful to reflect on the application process.

The UK Medical Applicant Cohort Study is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (Grant Reference Number CDF-2017-10-008). The views expressed are those of the researchers and not necessarily those of the NIHR or the Department of Health and Social Care.

The study is led by Dr Katherine Woolf at UCL Medical School. For more information see: https://www.ucl.ac.uk/medical-school/research/uk-medical-applicant-cohort-study



For 2019 entry we have received over 1500 applications for A100/A104.

The Roles & Responsibilities form has now been sent to all applicants and should be completed by all Home/EU candidates.

Please see our entry requirement pages for entry criteria and also our Admissions Policy 2019.


Our selection process requires candidates to be interviewed before any offer can be made. Approximately 600 applicants will be invited for an interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place in December, January, February and March. Interview decisions will be communicated via UCAS track. More details about the interview can be found below. 

An early interview does not indicate a better application or that you are more likely to receive an offer. Offers are based on performance at interview and, in borderline cases, UKCAT score.

Interview documentation for 2019 entry

Exam results and re-marks

Due to the HEFCE quota of places allocated to us as a medical school, our numbers are tightly controlled. Therefore when the A level results are published in August 2019 we will make our decision based on those grades. If you don't meet the academic terms of your offer and subsequently decide to appeal to the Examination Board for a re-mark, you must advise us of this immediately in writing. Our admissions policy states that we may defer entry for applicants who do not initially meet the terms of their offer, but who do so after a re-mark.
