Dear Dakota

I am writing further to your request for information regarding A100 Medicine applications. A search of our electronic and paper records has been completed and I can confirm that the information requested is held by the University.

In answer to your request:

1. Average UCAT score for international applicants that were called for interview for past three years

2018: 2650
2019: 2670
2020: 2720

2. Weightage of UCAT, GCSE's and Personal Statement for shortlisting of the interview(International applicants)

We consider this information is exempt under section 21(1) of the Freedom of Information Act as our selection process is publicly available on our website:
https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/medicine/st...

Personal statements ceased to be part of the shortlisting for interview in 2020 and will not form part of the selection for 2021.

3. Do applicants with a Band1/2 get an advantage during shortlisting/distinguishing between equal candidates?

Applicants with a Band 1 or 2 will receive a higher UCAT score. See selection process link above.

There are approximately 25 seats available each year for Medicine. These are split over the three Medicine courses - A101, A100 and A10L - with the A100 course recruiting the largest number.

For 2021, 20 seats have been allocated for the A100 course, however this may increase if the other two courses are unable to recruit international applicants.

2018: 50
