I’m requesting to see the mean, maximum, and quintile scores on the R*score scale set for
entry into Physics for applicants who were offer holders. (R*score is defined in the
admissions report on the department website as, R*score =!PAT score + 10(cGCSE), where
cGCSE represents the number of standard deviations away from the “expected number of
A*s in GCSE adjusted to context”), including the distribution of PAT scores for offer holders.
If a distribution is not possible, the 80th and 90th percentile of those who were short listed
and those who were offered will do I also request the expected number of A*s in GCSE for
international applicants, along with the standard deviation, for the 2019 cycle.
Dear Rohith S,
I write in reply to your email requesting the above information, which is attached.
