Dear University of Aberdeen,

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

In regards to your A100 undergraduate-entry Medicine course I would like to know:

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 Academic combined score for those invited to interview
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?

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants 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 combined Academic combined score for those invited to interview.

If places become available, how will places for 2020 entry be allocated to those who have chosen 2021 entry Medicine at Aberdeen 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,
