Dear Edge Hill University,

Could I request the admissions statistics for graduate applicants to your A100 MBCHB from the last 3 application cycles: 18/19, 19/20, 20/21. Specifically...

1. The number of graduate applications
2. The number of graduates given interviews
3. The number of final offers made to graduate applicants
4. Minimum UCAT score for a graduate with a 1:1 Honours degree that was subsequently invited to interview
5. Minimum UCAT score for a graduate with a 1:1 Honours degree that was subsequently given an offer

Additionally:

6. Do graduates compete for the same places as school leavers or are a set number of places reserved for graduates?
7. The number of places reserved on A100 for graduates (if any)
8. How does a graduates degree/A levels compare to a school leavers GCSE/ A levels during the application process?

Thank you :)

Yours faithfully,

Will Rob
