Medicine - International applicant statistics

Julian Henriksen made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to University of Exeter

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

We're waiting for Julian Henriksen to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear University of Exeter,

I am requesting information about international applicant admissions statistics for the 5 year medicine programme.

1) Which tier was the UCAT cut off applied to in previous years? (For international applicants in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021)

2) What was the UCAT cut off score in the tier it was applied to? (For international applicants in 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021)

3) I understand that in previous years, an applicant was required to be predicted A*A*A* at A level to be placed in tier 2. What does the university of Exeter consider to be the International Baccalaureate (IB) equivalent of this score? (Ie. What IB predicted grades would be required to be placed in tier 2?)

I understand that the selection process has changed slightly but responses to these questions would still be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Julian Henriksen

Dear Information Governance mailbox,

Thank you for the information. The answers to question #1 and question #2 are somewhat contradictory - The answer to Question 1 states that all cut off scores from 2017-2020 were applied to band 2 for international applicants, but in the answer to question 2, it states that the cut off was not applied to tier 2 for international applicants.

Could I please clarify:

1) Which tier was the cut off score applied to for international applicants in 2018, 2019 and 2020?

2) What were the UCAT cut off scores in these respective years for international applicants?

Yours sincerely,

Julian Henriksen

InformationGovernance mailbox, University of Exeter

Hello Julian,

I hope the following clarifies your query.

In 2017 cycle the UKCAT cut off score in tier 2 was 2000.
In cycles 2018 - 2020, tier 2 was the cut off and all tier 2 International applicants were invited to interview.

Kind regards

Information Governance Officer

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Thank you very much for your quick reply, the information thus far has been very useful.

I know that Exeter considers 7,7,7 in Higher level subjects to be the equivalent of A*A*A* at A level, but I would like to enquire whether there is an IB score out of 45 that can be considered equivalent to 3 A*s at A level (Eg 42/45) (Instead of 7,7,7 at Higher Level)- is this the case and if so what score out of 45 would be required?

Yours sincerely,

Julian Henriksen

Hello Julian,

The University of Exeter can confirm that an overall score of 42 in the International Baccalaureate is equivalent to A*A*A* at A level.

Kind regards

Information Governance Officer

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Thank you very much for all you help thus far. So just to confirm, would an applicant who is predicted:

7,7,6 at higher level, but 42/45 overall

Be considered to have predicted grades that are equivalent to A*A*A* at A level? (3A*s)

Would an applicant with these predictions have been placed in tier 2 in previous admissions cycles?

Yours sincerely,

Julian Henriksen

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Could I also know which tier the UCAT cut off was applied to for international students for the 2021 entry admissions cycle, and what the UCAT cut off score was in this tier?
