Dear University of St Andrews,
I was wondering if you could help me with my hopefully relatively simple request.

I am compiling some application statistics in relation to your A100 medicine course over the last 3 years in relation to both domestic and international applicants. I have broken down my request for extra clarity. I would like to know the following:

In regards to your A100 undergraduate-entry Medicine course:

The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances.

The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances.

The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2018- entry:
The number of applications
The number of applicants who were invited to interview
The number of offers made
The number of final acceptances.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Alec Maynard

Dear June/University of St Andrews,

Many thanks for your response to my FOI request - very useful.

I wish to clarify two points, which I think will unfortunately mean a request for more info:

1) You state that the cycle for 2019 entry is incomplete. Students will, of course, have started on the course almost 3 months ago now. When will you consider this cycle "complete" i.e. when will you have access to interview data?
2) By "final acceptances" I meant the number of people who actually enrolled onto the course as a result of the admissions process. From what you have stated I do not think those are the figures provided. I'd be grateful if you could provide that information.

So, please consider my new request under FOI legislation for:

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2019- entry:
The number of applicants invited to interview, if data available. If not available, the date on which it will be available
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2019- entry:
The number of applicants invited to interview, if data available. If not available, the date on which it will be available.
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2018- entry:
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2018- entry:
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

For UK/EU applicants applying for -2017- entry:
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

For international (for fee-paying purposes) applicants for -2017- entry:
The number of final acceptances/enrolments.

Many thanks for your help.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Maynard
