For Natural Scientists, we take the 3 subject score in NST IB, add in the Biochemistry & Molecular Biology IB mark again (i.e. give double weighting to the performance in BMB) and prepare an order of merit based on the 3 subject + BMB mark. For those not taking BMB and offering Cell and Developmental Biology (CDB) as their qualifying course we will use the CDB mark in the same way as a BMB mark.

For medical/veterinary students, we take the IB performance (total) and adjust it to give a total out of 300 (i.e. bring it in line with the NST total), then the performance in MVST IA MIMS is added in and the revised total (out of 400) is produced to prepare the order of merit.

For those wishing to proceed to Part III after Part II, additional information together with Entry Requirements can be accessed via the Part III pages.
