A100 Medicine 2019 Admissions Statistics

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Leeds,

For each candidate interviewed for 2019 A100 entry, could you please provide an anonymised itemised table with the following information: their GCSE results, predicted/achieved A-levels (or equivalent), BMAT result, and interview score broken down into constituent parts.

If for whatever reason this request is not possible, then could you please fulfil the same request, omitting each of the following data with decreasing preference until it is possible:

1. Data from unsuccessful candidates (i.e. those not given offers to study A100 medicine)
2. A-levels
3. GCSEs
If an overall academic score out of 35 (as is used pre-interview) is possible and easier than the above two data (GCSEs and A-levels) then feel free to provide this instead.
3. Constituent parts of interview scores (the more detail possible the better, but at the very least the total interview score out of 80)

i.e. The bare minimum desired response (if none of the above is also possible) would have the following information in a tabular format as shown:

Candidate | BMAT result | Total interview score
1 A X
2 B Y

Yours faithfully,

Alison Baum

Dear Ms Baum

 

Further to your FOI request, unfortunately we do not record all the
individual GCSE results.  We simply record the score awarded for GCSEs, A
levels and BMAT.  We have also provided the overall score for interview
and not each marks for each section.  There were 8 stations per MMI with 3
set of marks available per station (including marks for communication
skills on each station).   Each applicant was therefore awarded 3 marks
per station x 8 for their interview.

 

I've attached a spreadsheet which gives the following information:

 

First tab labelled 'Main data'  has a list of all students applied to
Leeds for entry in 2019 simply listed as 1 - 2487.

Column A is the total of their academic score (ie GCSE and A level).  This
is out of a maximum score of 35 with 27 points being available for GCSEs
or equivalent and 8 for predicted grades at A level.  To achieve the full
27 points for GCSES candidates had to secure 9 GCSES with A* or 8/9 in
each.  Three points were awarded for A* or 8/9, 2 points for A or 7, and 1
point for B or 5/6.   Eight points maximum were available for A level
grades already gained or predicted (or equivalent) with 8 points being
awarded to those predicted AAA or above.

 

Column B are the points awarded for BMAT.  A maximum of 5 points is
available and are broken down as a ranking system.  When we get the
results these are ranked with top scoring 20% gaining 5 points, the next
20% gaining 4 points, down to the bottom 20% who gain one point.

 

Column C is the combination of both.

The cut-off for being called for interview was 37 and above out of 40 for
standard entry.  168 were called for interview who were non-standard and
scored less than 37 (Widening participation routes or contextual
evidence/circumstances, such as Access to Medicine courses, and Access to
Leeds scheme).

 

The second tab has the results of the interviews:

Column A records the interview score (1 - 95 are those who didn't attend
or cancelled at the last minute Column B records the outcome following
interview (DNA simply means didn't attend and were recorded as either
reject or withdrawn) Column C records the academic score (GCSE and A
level) Column D records the BMAT score allocated to them Column E records
the final score.

 

The cut-off point for interview was 63.5 for offers, applicants scoring
less were rejected.

 

I hope this is helpful in resolving your query. If you have any questions
about this email, however, please don't hesitate to contact me.
