Ms Massalova made this Freedom of Information request to St George's University of London

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, St George's University of London should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear St George’s University of London,

I would like to request some information regarding the 2015/2016 A100 Medicine admissions cycle. Please see the questions below.

1. For each applicant who was given an offer following the interview, can I get a list of their UKCAT score, their GCSEs, predicted A Level results, interview score per station, overall interview score and any other score if used? Please provide this information in one report.

2. For each applicant who was unsuccessful following the interview, can I get a list of their UKCAT score, their GCSEs, predicted A Level results, interview score per station, overall interview score and any other score if used? Please provide this information in one report.

I understand that the MMI stations cannot be named but they can be numbered instead. I would like to have this data presented as a spreadsheet if possible.

3. As well as the interview score, what other aspect(s) of the UCAS application (i.e. UKCAT score, GCSE grades, A Level grades) are used to select candidates to give offers to, post-interview? How are these aspect(s) weighted alongside the interview score (i.e. 50/50 weighting)?

4. Was there any other grading/scoring system used alongside the interview score (i.e. extra points awarded for UKCAT score, GCSE, A Level grades, personal statement) when selecting successful candidates post-interview?

5. If this system was used, were all candidates assessed based on the sum of their interview score plus other score (i.e. UKCAT score, GCSE, A Levels) or was there an interview score threshold where only candidates who pass this threshold will have their other aspect(s) of their application considered alongside their interview scores (and those who did not pass the threshold become unsuccessful)?

Yours faithfully,

Ms Massalova

Dear Susan Trubshaw,

Thank you for your response. I would like to clarify that my request was related to the admissions cycle that has just ended (offer holders will start the A100 course in September 2015). Please confirm that this is the cycle you are referring to. Is St George's University currently still in the process of selecting the successful candidates for A100 course?

Yours sincerely,

Ms Massalova
