Dear S Chatterjee,


I am writing in response to your request for information received by UCL
on 30 March.


Further to your request for the selection criteria, "cut offs" and the
scoring system for applications. The selection criteria are available
online from the UCL website:



There are no "cut offs". The current application scoring system used can
be described as follows:


·         GCSE profile is rated as “high”, “medium” or “low” (where medium
represents an average profile of majority A or A* grades).

·         There is also a pass/fail element depending on the candidate
meeting our minimum requirement of BB in GCSE Maths and English Language.

·         AS-level results are rated on a scale of 1 through 5 (a score of
1 represents AAAA at AS, 2 represents AAAB where the B is in a
non-mandatory subject, 3 is AAAB where the B is in a mandatory subject, 4
is AABB, 5 is anything below AABB).

·         Predicted A2 grades are pass/fail depending on whether they meet
the entry requirements.

·         A yes/no depending on whether the student has taken a
contrasting AS subject and/or EPQ.

·         Personal statement is rated as 'average', 'below average' or
'above average'.

·         Reference is rated as 'average', 'below average' or 'above

·         BMAT scores are added in their original format e.g. 5.0, 5.0,
3.0 A.
