Dear University of Liverpool,
As per the Freedom of Information Act, please may I request the following information for your A100 medicine course. All requests are for the 2018 entry cycle, 2019 entry cycle and the 2020 entry cycle. If the data for the 2020 entry cycle is not available then I would just like the 2018 and 2019 entry cycle if possible.

1) Number of places on the course and the number of places reserved for Home/EU students
2) Number of applicants, the number of applicants interviewed and the number of offers made
3) Lowest and the average UCAT score considered for an interview
4) Lowest and the average UCAT score for successful applicants, to whom you made offers
4) If you do have a UCAT cut-off score could you kindly share the cut-off score for an interview? And if it's been decided then for 2021 entry as well?
5) Can I please know more about the selection process in terms of weightings. For example 40% UCAT, 10% contextual, etc. ?
6) Lastly, if it's been set then how many places will there be for the 2021 entry cycle? If it has not been decided then how many are you roughly able to accommodate or take onto the course? For example <100, 100, 200 or 300?

If any of this information is already publicly available could you please include the link to the website/data in the response so that I may access it.
