Dear Jesus College, Cambridge,
I would like to request some data on the A100 applications from the last four admissions cycles, under the terms of the Freedom Of Information Act 2000.
The data I would like is as follows,
1) How many applicants applied post A level and of those how many received interview and offers.
2) For the applicants who were given offers (post a level ) and the ones who didn't (post a level) could I get anonymised data on what A Levels they had taken and their average ums scores in each invididual subject. If an applicant took retakes , could this be indicated as well as how many were taken.
As well as this, I would like their bmat scores.
3) Could I also have a copy of any scoring system used before, during or after interview.
4) Finally, how is contextual data used for gcse's and are there personalized offers for medicine?
Thank you for your request.
We did not have any A100 applicants who were post qualification and had left school. Therefore we have no data for UMS marks or BMAT scores
Interview scoring is as follows:
10 Exceptional candidate - must take
9 Very strong - definitely worth an offer
8 Strong - worth an offer
7 Probably worth an offer
6 Possibly worth an offer
5 Doubtful of an offer
1-3 Probably unacceptable
We use this numerical scoring system to assess candidates' interviews only. We do not give a numerical score to the paper application, but make verbal classification i.e. Strong, weak, average
There is no mechanical or numerical use of contextual data. This is included in the Admissions Tutor review of the whole application and maybe referred to verbally in final decision meetings.
Technically all offers are personalised as every applicant will have a different academic profile i.e. offer different combinations of A-level subjects. Offers typically specify the subjects with grades that candidates must achieve in that subject.
