Dear University of Manchester,

My request is regarding statistics for the A100 medicine course. All requests are for the 2018/2019 cycle. If data for the 2018/2019 cycle is not possible, I would like it for the 2017/2018 cycle. Many thanks.

Please can I have the following anonymised data about the candidates who applied:

1. For each applicant, can I know their A-level predicted grades, GCSE grades, UKCAT score, BMAT score, whether they were successful in getting an interview and whether they were successful in getting a place?
2. For each applicant, can I also know whether they were home or international (if so whether they were an EU citizen)
3. Please can I know what type of school the applicant went to (independent, maintained, grammar, academy or boarding)?
4. Please could I have a breakdown of their UKCAT and BMAT scores by section
5. How their PS and interview performance was graded or scored
6. Whether they were on a gap year or taking a deferred place

Please can I have all this data in an Excel or at least machine-readable format.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Holland

Dear Mr Holland

I am writing to acknowledge your request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 received by The University of Manchester today, our reference as per the subject line.

The University does not run the A100 Medicine Course but we do run the A106. Would you like information about this course instead?

Kind regards

David

Dear Mr Holland,

 

Thank you for your clarified request for information received by The
University of Manchester on 06 August 2019 which was as follows:

 

For the A106 course

 

All requests are for the 2018/2019 cycle. If data for the 2018/2019 cycle
is not possible, I would like it for the 2017/2018 cycle. Many thanks.

 

Please can I have the following anonymised data about the candidates who
applied:

 

1.            For each applicant, can I know their A-level predicted
grades, GCSE grades, UKCAT score, BMAT score, whether they were successful
in getting an interview and whether they were successful in getting a
place?

2.            For each applicant, can I also know whether they were home
or international (if so whether they were an EU citizen)

3.            Please can I know what type of school the applicant went to
(independent, maintained, grammar, academy or boarding)?

4.            Please could I have a breakdown of their UKCAT and BMAT
scores by section

5.            How their PS and interview performance was graded or scored

6.            Whether they were on a gap year or taking a deferred place

 

The University has now considered your request and unfortunately we are
unable to provide any information at this moment. I have explained the
reasons for this in more detail below.

 

Please note that the 2018/19 data is still in-cycle and hasn’t been
finalised yet therefore this response is in relation to 2017/18 data.

 

UCAS forms are assessed as we receive them to check that the applicant has
met our minimum required standard however not all of the information you
have requested is transcribed from the UCAS application forms. In
particular, we do not transcribe GCSE grades or A Level predicted grades.
Therefore in order to answer question 1 of your request we would need to
manually read through all of the application forms to collate this
information for you. I can advise that in 2017/18 there were 2175 home
applicants. Even at a highly conservative estimate of 2 minutes per
record, this would in excess of 72 hours to complete. This task would
clearly take in excess of the 18 hour ‘Appropriate Limit’ (as defined in
the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and
Fees) Regulations 2004). As a result, Section 12 of the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 applies and regrettably this task cannot be
undertaken at this stage. This email serves to act as a refusal notice for
this request, as per Section 17 (5) of the Act.

 

I have provided some information below that is more readily accessible.
This information is provided as a gesture of goodwill however it does not
affect the University’s legal right to rely on the Fees Regulations for
the remainder of your request.

 

2. This information is available on our website at
[1]https://www.bmh.manchester.ac.uk/medicin...,
as well as other statistics in relation to applications, interviews and
admissions which you might find of assistance.

5. I can advise that we do not normally read the UCAS personal statement
as part of the application process, although we reserve the right to do
so. This was not required for any applicant in the last cycle.

6. For the 2017-18 cycle, 24 students deferred their place on A106, one of
whom has decided not to come.

 

In addition to this, I can advise that the admissions team are happy to
respond to general admissions questions and can be contacted via email on
[2][email address].

 

If you feel that The University of Manchester has refused access to
information to which you are entitled, or has not dealt with your request
appropriately under the FOIA, you have a right of appeal.

 

An appeal in the first instance should be directed to the Information
Governance Office at [3][email address]. You should include: 

·         details of your initial request

·         any other relevant information

 

The University will deal with your appeal within a reasonable time, and
will inform you of the projected time scale on receipt of your complaint.
You are also welcome to contact the Information Governance Office with
informal questions about the handling of your request. 

 

After The University’s internal appeals procedure has been exhausted, you
have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s
Office. Details of this procedure can be found at [4]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards

 

Sharon
