Dear Tracey Crombie,

In relation to your message asking for clarification in relation to point 5- it’s the cut off point post interview.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs A. Hussain

Tracey Crombie,

Dear Mrs A. Hussain

 

Further to your FOI request, please see below:-

 

1. How many places are available on the 2019 entry? – 239 for home, 19 for
international

2. How many were called for interview? – 1,056

3. How many places have been offered? – 389 currently made (home and
international) with further offers to be made for alternative entry
routes.

4. Details of what the cut off mark was for an offer following interview?
Was this heavily dependent on the performance on the day? I can confirm
that the cut-off point for the interview ranking was 63.00 out of a total
of 80.00.  There were 10 points allocated to each of the 8 MMI station
giving the maximum total of 80.00 points.  The points on each station are
broken down into 2 attributes worth 4 points each, plus 2 points for
Communication Skills which is marked on all eight stations, therefore 10
points are available per station.  All students were ranked after
interview and offers were made according to rank based on performance on 8
MMI stations. 

5. What is the lowest score where an offer has been made for 2019 entry? –
63.00 was the cut-off score, out of a maximum total of 80.00 points
available.

6. Is there a ‘waiting list’ and how is this prioritised? We operate a
waiting list but this will not be carried out until all students have
responded to their offers to all institutions.  Once this cut-off date has
passed a number of students, based on ranking will be placed on this list
and informed of this.

7. Can a student who holds an offer from another University for medicine,
still go onto your waiting list?  No.

8.  Were any places offered in 2018 to those who had initially been
rejected? We did offer some places to those who had initially been
rejected once we had received the final decisions of candidates holding
offers who were not holding offers for medicine elsewhere.

 

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.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to or email directly Mr D Wardle, Deputy Secretary, The
University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT ([email address]). You should
do so within 40 working days of receiving the University’s response to
your request. Further information about how the University manages Freedom
of Information requests and about our complaints procedure is also
available on our website (www.leeds.ac.uk).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have
exhausted the review/complaints procedure provided by the University.  The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at:  Information Commissioner’s
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Best wishes,
