Entry requirements

for Medicine MBChB

Date of entry

September 2020

English is my first language:

Level 1 entry

AAAAB at Higher, in the same sitting (typical)
AAABB at Higher, in the same sitting (minimum / Widening Access)

Essential subjects

Higher - Chemistry and another science subject (from Biology, Physics, or Mathematics).
The other three Highers can be your own choice and this choice of subjects will not influence the assessment.

We also require biology at least to grade A at National 5 and mathematics and English at least to grade B at National 5, if not studied at Higher.

Achievement at Standard Grade/National 5 will also be taken into account.

Offers may be conditional, based on three Advanced Highers / 'crash' Highers taken in 6th year, at BBB grades.

Candidates who have completed S6 and have not attained the 6th year entry requirements are unlikely to be considered.

All applicants must sit the UCAT test in their year of application unless certified exempt because there is no testing centre in your country. There is no minimum cut-off score. More information about the UCAT test and how and when to register for it can be found on the UCAT website.

Find out if you meet the criteria to apply as a Widening Access applicant.
