1) Please could you provide me an excel sheet containing all of the following information for the past 2 DBS Dentistry admission cycles: 2016/2017 and 2017/2018. If you do not have information for the years requested, I kindly ask for you to provide the statistics for the next most recent 2 years of admissions.

* UKCAT score
* A-level predicted grades
* Graduate/Non-Graduate
* Interviewed - Grad: Non-Grad/ Not interviewed - Grad:Non-Grad
* Made an offer - Grad: Non-Grad/ Not made an offer - Grad:Non-Grad

2) Are graduates applying for the program given equal consideration to those applying without any higher education of such?

Yours Faithfully,

James

Good morning J.D.

Thank you for your request for information dated 15/01/2019. Please see below and the attached for the information requested.

1. See attached.

2. Graduates are in the same pool as all of the other students (A Levels, IB, Access Courses etc.). We do not have a quota of how many graduates we take.

3. The only time we will look at the A Level grades of graduate students is if they have not done a Degree that contains both Biology and Chemistry.

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: 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: http://ico.org.uk/concerns
