The request was successful.

Dear King's College London,

I would like to request for information regarding the GRADUATE-ENTRY BDS Dentistry admissions.

1) Please could you provide me an excel sheet containing all of the following information for the past 3 BDS Dentistry admission cycles: 2017/2018, 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 (if available). If you do not have information for the years requested, I kindly ask for you to provide the statistics for the next most recent 3 years of admissions.

* UCAT/UKCAT score cut-off
* Mean UCAT/UKCAT for offer holders
* Number of Applicants
* Number Interviewed
* Number of offers made

2) To what extent is the UCAT used in the selection process, when compared to academic qualifications (e.g. degree prediction, A-levels, GCSEs) and the personal statement?

3) What is the course size of the graduate-entry course? What is the course size of the total BDS cohort (including undergraduate-entry)?

4i) To what extent will the A-Level grades of applying graduates be considered once over the threshold?
4ii) If the A-Level grades are to be more heavily considered, is there a point system, and how are the points awarded?

Yours faithfully,

J. D. Thomas
