Dear Shayla Carter,
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning A100 Medicine
applicants.
 
To comply with your precise request would require the processing of the
personal data of individual applicants for a purpose other than that for
which it was obtained and would therefore conflict with the Data
Protection Principles. However, we hope the following information relating
to Medicine applications in the 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19 admissions
rounds will prove useful.
 
1. The number of students applying with A-Level qualifications already
obtained
Five applicants over the three admissions rounds.
 
2. Their  A-Level subjects and results
A-Level subjects taken by these applicants include Biology, Chemistry,
Physics, Mathematics and Geography. Results ranged from A*-A.
 
3. Whether they had obtained a degree or any other additional
qualification that is more advanced than an A-level as well (e.g, a
Bachelors in Biomedical Science).
Fewer than 5 applicants had already obtained an advanced qualification.

The average BMAT scores of these applicants for each of the three sections
were as follows:
Section 1: 5.7.
Section 2: 6.8.
Section 3: 3.3.
 
5. Whether or not the applicant was called for an interview (y/n)
All of these applicants were called to interview.
 
6. The interview scores (1-10)
Interview scores ranged from 2.0 to 8.5.
 
7. The overall score (1-10)
The average overall score was 5.7.

9. Whether the applicant was pooled (y/n)
Fewer than 5 applicants were pooled.
 
10. Whether a pool offer was made from another college (y/n)
None of the pooled applicants received an offer from another College.
 
If you are dissatisfied with my response you may seek an internal review
in writing setting out the grounds for review. It will be dealt with by a
College Officer. Should you not be satisfied with the outcome of the
review, you will have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner by
writing to: Information Commissioner’s Officer, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
Yours sincerely,
