Admissions procedure for graduate applicants to A100 Medicine at King's

Response to this request is delayed. By law, King's College London should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

Dear King's College London,

Could I request some clarification as to how graduate applicants are scored pre- and post-interview for the A100 Medicine programme and how places are allocated to graduate applicants to A100? Specifically...

1.) How many places (roughly) are allocated to graduates on the A100 course per application cycle?

2.) Are graduates competing alongside school leavers for the A100 course or are graduates pooled together separately and assessed against each other?

3.) How are the academics and other factors for graduates scored in the pre-interview selection process i.e. in relation to degree class, UCAT score, SJT Band, Personal Statement, and if applicable, GCSEs and A-Levels?

4.) What were the pre-interview scores needed to secure an interview for graduate applicants to the A100 course for the past 3 application cycles (if available)?

5.) Post-interview, are graduates made offers solely on the basis of their interview performance, or are prior aspects of the application such as UCAT score, SJT band also considered at this stage?

Thank you :)
