Dear Jai Pantling,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning Medicine
(A100) applicants to St John’s College.

 

To comply with your precise request would require the processing of the
personal data of individual applicants for a purpose other than that for
which it was obtained and would therefore conflict with the Data
Protection Principles. However, we hope the following information
about Medicine (A100) applicants for the 2019-2020 UCAS application
cycle will prove useful.

1) The number of A* GCSEs achieved ranged from:

0 - 12.

2) BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) scores ranged from:

* 1.3 - 8.2 in Section 1 (Aptitude and Skills [1 - 9]).
* 1.6 - 7.7 in Section 2 (Science Knowledge & Application [1 - 9]).
* 2.0 - 5.0 in Section 3 (Essay Content [1 - 5]).
* D - A in Section 3 (Quality of English [A - E]).
* 2.43 - 7.70 overall.

3) Interviews are not broken down into sections, instead scores are
accorded by each individual interviewer. 

* Interview score 1 ranged from 3 - 10.
* Interview score 2 ranged from 4 - 10.
* Interview score 3 ranged from 3 - 10.
* Interview score 4 ranged from 3 - 10.
* The overall average interview score ranged from 4 - 9.5.

4a) Whether St John's college made an offer:

18 applicants received offers, out of a total of 154 applicants.

4b) If an offer was not made, whether the candidate was pooled:

41 applicants were placed in the Winter pool.

If you are dissatisfied with my response you may seek an internal review
in writing setting out the grounds for review. It will be dealt with by a
College Officer. Should you not be satisfied with the outcome of the
review, you will have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner by
writing to him at Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

Yours sincerely,
