Undergraduate Medicine admissions: data on candidates applying with to A100 an Access to HE Diploma

University of Birmingham Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear University of Birmingham,

I would like to request the following data relating to the Medicine Course (A100) offered by your university.

I am requesting the data for candidates who received offers for one of the aforementioned law courses in the 2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/2021 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

If the data for 2020/2021 is not available for whatever reason, this is understandable.

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1. The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

2. The average, highest, and lowest BMAT/UCAT scores (whichever is applicable) of the offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

3. The average, highest, and lowest number of GCSEs of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Singh

Dear FOI,

Please ignore where it says "aforementioned law courses" as this is a clerical error. My request is only regarding admissions to medicine only.

Apologies,
