Coronavirus Advice for Prospetive Students/Offer Holders

For Medicine MBBS (A100) we are happy to consider offer holders who Firmly accepted our offer for 2021 entry should they wish to defer their assessment or are unhappy with the calculated grades they are given in the summer examination result release. They will not be required to sit the BMAT or attend an interview. Applicants will be re-issued the offers for the next academic year. Applicants who wish to take up this opportunity will need to reapply for 2021 by the UCAS deadline date and contact Medical Admissions to inform us about their intention to do so.

For the most up-to-date advice and information concerning UCL’s response to the coronavirus outbreak please go to this web pageAdvice for students and staff. In the Frequently Asked Questions there is a section for prospective students.

Work Experience Guidance in the time of COVID-19

We recommend that prospective students read the Medical Schools Council new work experience guidance in the time of Covid-19.

Offer Holders - Immunisation Record

A condition of your Medicine offer is to submit a completed OHW questionnaire form before the deadline date of 31 May. Instructions were sent by email to you on how to complete and submit the questionnaire.

Part of the process requires you to print out the questionnaire and take it to your GP to be verified. Given the current workload on the NHS during the Covid-19 outbreak, it is not possible for GPs to complete this paperwork.  This part of the process will no longer be required for your OH Outcome Letter to be issued.

However, when you receive your OH Outcome Letter you will be instructed, as a matter of priority, to upload to the Workplace Health Portal evidence of your immunisation.  Suitable evidence is your Personal Child Health Record (red book) or GP printout or copy of your immunisation record. You do not need to visit your GP in order to obtain this printout or copy, but can obtain it from your GP Reception. 

Interview Preparation

For information on how to prepare for your interview, please visit the Medical Schools Council website.

Please note - as of the 2020 admissions cycle we will no longer use Section 3 of the BMAT (Essay) as part of the interview.


For the 2020/21 admissions cycle candidates must sit the BMAT on 4 November 2020.

Cambridge Assessment have produced a new BMAT preparation guide.  For additional guidance please visit the Cambridge Assessment BMAT website.

Average BMAT scores for UCL applicants in the 2019/20 cycle

Section 1: 4.3

Section 2: 4.1

Section 3: 2.9A

May we remind candidates that we do not use a cut-off score for BMAT.  Since the scores alone do not determine the outcome of an application, this is for guidance only.

Visiting UCL Medical School

The teaching for medical students takes place at a variety of campus locations and that there is no specific single building to visit. It is therefore not possible to offer individual department visits for Medicine. 

Visiting UCL in person


Prospective students who are interested in applying to UCL and would like to visit the main campus before making an application are advised to first consider attending one of the UCL Open Days or to sign up for a student-guided campus tour

If no guided tours are available on dates that you find convenient, it is possible to undertake the self-guided tour on any weekday. 

If you have specific questions about applying for Medicine, the majority should be answered on this website. You can also email us with any particular queries.

You can attend a range of public events at UCL. Find information about these via the Visit UCL website.

UCL Open Days

UCL Opens Days offer a number of activities specific to Medicine and the Medical School including Medicine Admissions Talks and Taster Lectures.  You will also have the opportunity to speak with admissions and academic staff, as well as current medical students.  In addition you can view some of our facilities, including those in the Cruciform Building, and on-campus resources such as libraries and museums.
