Dear Cardiff University,
Please can I have the following anonymised data about the candidates who applied with regards to the 2017/2018, 2018/2019, 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 admissions cycles for the A100 medicine course:
1) The average GCSE score out of 27 of applicants successful in acquiring an interview in each cycle.
2) The minimum GCSE score out of 27 required for an interview in each cycle.
I acknowledge receipt of your email/letter received by this office on 10/05/2021.
Your request will now be dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and has been allocated reference FOI21-196 which should be quoted in all correspondence. We will respond to your request within 20 working days starting the next working day after receipt, therefore you can expect to receive a response no later than 08/06/2021.
Please note that in order to fulfil your request we need to liaise with other teams across the University. Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic most staff are now working remotely, and it is possible that there will be a delay in responding to your request. Staff may not be able to assist as they may need to prioritise other work, cover for colleagues who are ill or be away from work themselves due to illness. However, we will do our best to meet this deadline and keep you informed should we be unable to do so.
In some circumstances a fee may be payable and, if that is the case, we will let you know. A fees notice will be issued to you, and you will be required to pay before we will proceed to deal with your request.
