Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Rephrase:

Would an applicant be considered widening participation (so a contextual student) if they completed a summer school with Sutton Trust?

(I’m asking this because so I can clarify the criteria that a applicant needs to be considered contextual).

Yours sincerely,

Miss Ajegbomogun

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Please could you also confirm that for medicine contextual tier 1 applicants that are predicted AAB does the two As have to be in science subjects? So would an applicant predicted an A in chemistry, A in biology and a A in a third A level (e.g. an humanity) still be in tier 1?

Yours sincerely,

Miss Ajegbomogun

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Sorry for the confusion.
For my example I meant predicted grades of an A in Chemistry, B in biology and A in History/3rd non-science A level.

Thank you for your quick response.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Ajegbomogun

Dear InformationGovernance mailbox,

Sorry, I meant AAB predictions. So would a AA in chemistry and history (so a third non-science) A level and a B in biology still be considered a tier 1 contextual?

Yours sincerely,

Miss Ajegbomogun
