Dear Cardiff University,

I am a Biomedical Sciences graduate from cardiff university. As an applicant of the A100 course, I was wondering if GCSEs were still looked at for graduates and if so, how much of a weighting they have.

Also, what is the GCSE cut off score in previous years.

Kind regards,

Ian Redfearn

InfoRequest, Cardiff University

Dear Ian Redfearn,

 

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 3^rd
October 2022.

 

For ease of reference, I have reproduced your questions below and set out
our corresponding responses.

 

As an applicant of the A100 course, I was wondering if GCSEs were still
looked at for graduates and if so, how much of a weighting they have.

 

Please refer to our policy which details our selection process:

[1]https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/__data/assets/...

 

If an applicant met the minimum GCSE and A Levels and was working towards
a degree or had achieved a degree they would have automatically been given
the top score of 27 points and would have been in competition with all
other applicants with that score as we do not have a specific graduate
quota.

 

Also, what is the GCSE cut off score in previous years.

 

The maximum score any applicant could have achieved previously would have
been 27, although a true score may have been higher all scores were capped
at 27.

 

I trust this information satisfies your enquiry.  Should you feel
dissatisfied with this response or the way in which your request was
handled you can request an Internal Review. This should be made in writing
within 40 working days of the date of this email. Please provide your
unique reference number of your request, information on why you are
dissatisfied and any detail you would like us to consider as part of the
Internal Review process. Email your request to
[2][email address] where it will be forwarded to the Head of
Compliance and Risk who will be responsible for overseeing the review.

 

If you remain dissatisfied following the outcome, you have the right to
apply directly to the Information Commissioner for consideration.  The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at the following address:
Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Cardiff University. If you require further assistance please feel free to
contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
