Dear Br-Freedom-Of-Information,
That is very helpful, thank you.
Can you please confirm if the Personal Statement was scored as part of the 2019 selection process and if so, what score was required to reach this stage, ie what was the cut off for GCSE and UCAT scoring to proceed to having PS assessed?

Yours sincerely,

Judy Macdonald

Dear Br-Freedom-Of-Information,

Thank you, once again.
Can I just ask you to clarify what the GCSE and UKCAT cut off was for the Nottingham pathway for 2019 entry, separate to the Lincoln one.
Thanks so much for your help

Yours sincerely,

Judy Macdonald

Dear Judy

I am writing in relation to your further request for information for the A100 Medicine course.

Although we are happy to answer any further queries you have regarding our response, the two further emails sent ask for new information. If this is your final question, I will approach our Admissions team again for a response but please note that any further questions will be treated as new requests under the Act.

I hope this is helpful.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Br-Freedom-Of-Information,

Thank you so much and I apologise for any inconvenience. Yes, I believe this is my last question and am very grateful for your assistance and prompt responses.

Yours sincerely,

Judy Macdonald

Br-Freedom-Of-Information, University of Nottingham

Dear Judy

Thank you for confirming that this is your final question.

Can I just check if you are asking for the Nottingham pathway only (ie A100) or if you are asking for both?

Kind regards,
Karen Page

Dear Br-Freedom-Of-Information,

Both would be perfect, thank you so much

Dear Judy

I am writing in response to your final question and can confirm that our Admissions team has confirmed the following:

The threshold for UCAT and GCSE combined to get to interview was 46 for the A100 Medicine course.

The threshold for UCAT and GCSE combined to get to interview was 33 for the A10L Medicine course. It should be noted that as this was the first intake for this course and fewer applicants were aware, the number of applications was low. Therefore, it is expected that the threshold for A10L will be higher in future years.

I hope this further information is helpful.

Yours sincerely,
Karen Page

I would just like to thank you Iand the relevant departments) very much for the prompt, accurate and relevant information provided as many institutions are not as forthcoming! Please pass this on to whoever manages the Department (if not yourself) as I have requested many FOIs and Nottingham have made the most timely and helpful response of any institute I have contacted

Yours sincerely,
