Dear Queens’ College, Cambridge,

1. Please may I request the BMAT scores (Section 1, 2 and 3) of the current offer holders for the A100 Medicine Course.
By offer holders, I mean applicants who have received either a conditional or an unconditional offer for 2017/2018 entry during the last admissions cycle. Please could the same data be released for unsuccessful applicants as well.

2. Please may I also request the A level predictions for the candidates that were successful for the 2017/2018 admissions cycle, the A level grades they had to meet as part of their conditional offers, and whether or not they met these requirements. Please could the A level predictions for unsuccessful applicants be released as well.

3. And lastly, please may I request the interview scores for the current offer holders for the A100 Medicine Course for the 2017/2018 admissions cycle. Please could the same data be released for unsuccessful applicants as well.

Yours faithfully,

Christine Salami

Dear Ms Salami

Further to your request under the Freedom of Information Act the answer to
your questions is that the college no longer holds the data for
unsuccessful applicants who applied for 2017 entry.  For successful
applicants the scores achieved for Section 1 in the BMAT ranged between
4.7-6.9. The scores achieved in Section 2 ranged between 5.1-7.5. The
scores achieved in section 3 ranged between 2.5A-4.0A.

The A Level predictions for successful applicants were A*A*A*A or above.
Most successful applicants were asked to achieve A*A*A but some were made
a higher offer. Not all successful applicants met their offer. The
interview scores for successful applicants ranged between 6-9.5.

If you feel that we have not dealt with your request under the Freedom of
Information Act properly, the College’s procedures indicate that you may
complain to the President who may be contacted at Queens’ College,
Cambridge, CB3 9ET, email: [1][email address]. 

You also have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner for a
decision on whether your request has been dealt with in accordance with
the Freedom of Information Act.  The Information Commissioner will usually
expect complainants to have exhausted an organisation’s internal
complaints procedures before accepting a complaint. 

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
