Dear University of East Anglia,

I was wondering if you could help me with my request.

I am compiling some application statistics in relation to your A100 medicine course for the 2020 entry in relation to both domestic and international applicants. I have broken down my request for extra clarity. I would like to know the following:

In regards to your A100 undergraduate-entry Medicine course:

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2020- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2019- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview

I was also wondering how the UCAT is weighted and admissions process would work for 2021. Will interviews be online? Will the UCAT threshold decrease?

Yours faithfully,

Adam Azim

Dear University of East Anglia,

I've added some changes to my request,

In regards to your A100 undergraduate-entry Medicine course:

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2020- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview.
The median UCAT of those given an Interview
The lowest UCAT of those given an interview

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2019- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview
The median UCAT of those given an interview
The lowest UCAT of those given an interview

I was also wondering how the UCAT will be weighted and the admissions process would work for 2021 entry.
Will interviews be online?
Will the UCAT threshold decrease due to COVID-19 if the global interim and average decreases?

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Adam Azim

Dear Adam Azim

Regarding your request under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) received on 14 September 2020, we require clarification of one element(s) of your request; namely:

Please can you confirm that you require those figures for UK/EU and international applicants for 2020 entry, and not 2019 entry for international applicants as written in your request as below.

'In regards to your A100 undergraduate-entry Medicine course:

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2020- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview.
The median UCAT of those given an Interview
The lowest UCAT of those given an interview.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2019- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances (including deferrals who will start in 2021)
The average UCAT of those given an Interview
The median UCAT of those given an interview
The lowest UCAT of those given an interview

I was also wondering how the UCAT will be weighted and the admissions process would work for 2021 entry.
Will interviews be online?
Will the UCAT threshold decrease due to COVID-19 if the global interim and average decreases?'

Please note we will be responding to the above request, and not prior versions of your request received on the same day.

Please note that, in line with Information Commissioners Office (ICO) guidance, clarification of any element of a request is taken as clarification of the request as a whole.

Therefore we have stopped the 20 working day clock for a response on this request and will undertake no further work nor provide a response pending receipt of the requested clarification which will allow us to continue.

Please quote our reference given at the top of this email in all correspondence.
