- What is the needed combined score to secure an interview?
- are EU and Home applicants scored the same?
- Does A*A*A* predictions, First, and 7,7,7 (at higher level) give you equivalent points?
- How many people applied for 2014 - 2017 med program and how many people got in? (for each year)
- How many people applied for the 2018 entry?
- How many people who applied from 2014 - 2017 (each year individually) applied with grades that didn't meet the entry requirements?
