Dear University of Liverpool,

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

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.
The median UCAT of those given an Interview
The lowest UCAT of those given an interview
The lowest GCSE combined score for those invited to 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
The lowest combined GCSE score for those invited to interview

Also:
How many offers for A100 medicine course for 2020 entry were sent out to UK applicants?
How many offers for A100 medicine course for 2021 (deferred) entry were sent out to UK applicants?
If places become available, how will places for 2020 entry be allocated to those who have chosen 2021 entry Medicine at Liverpool university as their firm choice?

How will the UCAT be weighted and the admissions process be conducted for 2021 entry.
Will interviews be online?
Will the UCAT threshold decrease if the global interim and average decreases?

Yours faithfully,

Adam Azim

Dear University of Liverpool,

To clarify, I require figures for for UK/EU and international applicants for 2020 entry, and not for 2019 entry for international applicants as previously written.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
