From: Louise

10 October 2012

Dear Brighton and Sussex Medical School

Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, I kindly request
some raw data from you regarding A100 applications for the latest
available admissions cycle and the one preceding that.

The data I would like is all in regards to the 2011/2012 admissions
cycle and is as follows:

1) For each applicant who was unsuccessful in obtaining an
interview, can I get a list of their UKCAT score
how they were allocated the UCAS Tariff points (ie by music
qualifications or A Levels)?
2)For each applicant who was successful in obtaining an interview,
can I get a list of their UKCAT score and their predicted UCAS
tariff including the subjects that were studied and how they were
allocated the UCAS Tariff points (ie by music qualifications or A
Levels)?
3) Can I get a list of criteria that the interviewers looked at
during the interview to determine a candidates suitability?
4) How was the interview scored? Was it a score out of 10 by each
interviewer or anything along those lines?
5) For each applicant who was successful in obtaining an offer, can
I get a list of their UKCAT score and their predicted UCAS tariff
including the subjects that were studied and how they were
allocated the UCAS Tariff points (ie by music qualifications or A
Levels)as well as their score in the interview stage?
6) Can I get the UKCAT and UCAS tariff cut off as well?
7) I would also like any scoring or grading system used to assess
interview performance and if a form or such is provided to
interviewers to record performance is available I would also kindly
request this. This specific request is for this years admission
cycle, ie 2012/2013 as well as last year.

I'd like all of this information if possible to be in a spreadsheet
or word format if possible. Thank you very much

Yours faithfully,

Louise Clifford
