There are many universities in the UK that offer Medicine as a degree. With the amount of choice on offer, it can be difficult to judge which is the best option for you.
For most aspiring medical students, taking the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is the first step in their application. As the UKCAT is taken early on, you will already have the results when you choose which universities to apply for. This means that you are able to tailor your decision to your UKCAT score, and choose medical schools where you will have the best possible chance of being interviewed or receiving an offer—whether your score is high or not so high.
