Dental School

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

I have a request regarding information on the universities dentistry school. All questions are for last years UCAS cycle.

1) How many of the students admitted were studying A Levels?
2) How many of the students admitted were international?
3) How many graduate students applied for the 5 year course?
4) How many graduate students applied for the graduate course?
5) How many of each category of students that I have mentioned above were:
i) Rejected pre interview
ii) Rejected post interview
iii) Given an offer

By each category, I am referring to the categories 'A Level students', 'international students', 'graduates applying to the 5 year course' and 'graduates applying for the graduate 4 year course'.

6) For each applicant, can I get their UKCAT score, their GCSE results, degree result or prediction, A Level results or prediction, pre interview score and interview score? If it is not possible to give all the data within the time limit of 18 hours or £450, I would ask the university give me a sample of randomised data such that the time and cost constraints are met.

7) I would also request for a copy of the interview form that the university uses to assess a candidate during the interview for the Dentistry course. This request is applicable for this years entry cycle and I would like the forms for interview for both the undergraduate and post graduate interviews.

8)I would also like to know what the selection process is when determining a candidates suitability for both the four year course and the five year course. If any form is used to assess this, I would also like a copy of this.

I hope that this is not too much trouble for the university and I hope they can meet my requests without too much trouble. If possible, I would like all data to be in an excel format or word or pdf format if possible.

Yours faithfully,

Tom Smith
