Dear Glasgow Caledonian University,

I would like to ask for some information from last year's UCAS
cycle (2016 entry) for the dental hygiene and therapy
course.

1) Can I get a list of criteria that the interviewers looked at
during the interview to determine a candidate’s suitability?

2) How was the interview scored? Was it a score out of 10 by each
interviewer or anything along those lines?

3) Please can you provide a copy of the interview form that is
used in the MMIs for the dental hygiene and therapy course
to assess candidates.This request is applicable to 2016 entry. I
would kindly like to
request a copy of the form used in each of the stations.

Thank you very much
Yours faithfully,
Arun Lamichhane
