A100 Medicine Statistics

We're waiting for Mr Holland to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Newcastle University,

My request is regarding statistics for the A100 medicine course. All requests are for the 2018/2019 cycle. If data for the 2018/2019 cycle is not possible, I would like it for the 2017/2018 cycle. Many thanks.

Please can I have the following anonymised data about the candidates who applied:

1. For each applicant, can I know their A-level predicted grades, GCSE grades, UKCAT score, BMAT score, whether they were successful in getting an interview and whether they were successful in getting a place?
2. For each applicant, can I also know whether they were home or international (if so whether they were an EU citizen)
3. Please can I know what type of school the applicant went to (independent, maintained, grammar, academy or boarding)?
4. Please could I have a breakdown of their UKCAT and BMAT scores by section
5. How their PS and interview performance was graded or scored
6. Whether they were on a gap year or taking a deferred place

Please can I have all this data in an Excel or at least machine-readable format.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Holland

Good afternoon Mr Holland,

 

Thank you for your request for information dated 29/07/2019, please accept
our sincere apologies for the delay in responding to your request. Please

of some individuals being identifiable. This information is therefore
exempt from disclosure under section 40(2)/40(3)(a)(i) of the Freedom of
Information Act (2000), as it is personal data relating to those
individuals.

In response to question 4

The UCAT scores are attached broken down by each of the domains.

 

In response to question 5:

Personal statements are not scored in any way; they are simply reviewed
just before making offers.

The interviews are MMIs (multiple mini interviews) where applicants spend
7 minutes at 7 separate interview stations. There is a possible 15 points
available at the first station and 5 points available at the other six
stations meaning a total possible interview score of 45. After the
interviews applicants are ranked based on their interview scores.

 

Question 6 is covered in the second table above.

 

 

I hope that this is of use. If you are unhappy with the way we have
handled your request you can ask for an internal review. Details of how to
do this can be found at: [1]http://www.ncl.ac.uk/foi/access/complain...

 

If you are not happy with the outcome of the internal review, you then
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner's Office
for a decision. Details of how to do this can be found at:
