Dear Queen Mary, University of London,

I would like to request the following, under the Freedom of Information Act (2000), from Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry:

As I’m aware, invitation to interview for MBBS A100 is done by ranking 50% ukcat score and 50% UCAS Tariff points, after minimum entry requirements are met. Hence, please can you provide:

1. The cut off score for A100 Medicine MBBS for interview invitation for 2018 entry, 2017 entry and 2016 entry.

2. A spreadsheet of UKCAT scores and Qualifications (A levels, IB or degrees) of all applicants who successfully got an interview for 2018 entry.

Yours faithfully,

Eyad Jamileh

We acknowledge receipt of your request and will respond as soon as we can.

Dear QM FOI Enquiries,

Thank you for your reply.

I just wanted to confirm: is the reply to question1 the cut off for invitation to interview which is based on the combination of UCAS tarrif points and ukcat scores? If so, how is the score narrowed down to for example: 51.64 for 2018 entry? If not, please can you provide the cut off score for an applicant to be invited for interview (which is according to the combination of 50% UCAS tarrif points and 50% ukcat score).

Yours sincerely,
Eyad Jamileh

Dear Eyad Jamileh,

 

Thank you for your further email.

 

With regards to the cut-off, we use an internal formula to calculate a
combined score and establish a cut-off which will differ for each cohort.

 

With regards to the numbers of applicants to A100, please see the
attached.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Eyad Jamileh,

 

Thank you for your email of 6^th September, which we have treated as a new
request.

 

Please see our response to part 3 of this request:
[1]https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...
I am afraid that the method used is internal to Queen Mary University of
London and I cannot supply it to you as we believe it is exempt under
s.43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [2]www.ico.org.uk for details.
