Each applicant that sits the UGAA is considered on his/her merit and in
competition with the rest of the cohort. Each application is viewed
holistically; as well as the UGAA scores the following items are also
taken into consideration - academic achievements and qualifications, the
personal statement, the academic reference and additional social and
educational contextual data. For more information on exactly what
contextual information is used in the admissions decision making process

Contextual data is also used to inform confirmation decisions and students
that are flagged as Widening Participation may receive additional
