A100 Medicine Applications

We're waiting for ismaeel to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear University of Edinburgh

1) I would like to kindly request the list of criteria used to assess the personal statements of candidates for the A100 medicine course for 2017/18 entry, 2018/19 entry and 2019/2020 entry if this has been created.

2) How are personal statements scored? Is it a score out of 10 for each criteria, or a more holistic approach?

All above requests are specific to the medicine A100 course for 2017/18 entry, 2018/19 entry and 2019/2020 entry if this has been created yet.

Thank you
Ismaeel ZIa

While we will make all efforts to respond to requests promptly, please be
aware that in some cases unfortunately we will not be able to respond
within statutory timescales. The [1]Scottish Information Commissioner’s
Office and the [2]Information Commissioner’s Office have both issued

the [3]Scottish Information Commissioner's guidance on this point explains
that if you do not provide your real name or the name of the person on
whose behalf you are making the request, you will lose your right to
