    Hi, I was just reading this thread and wanted to ask how much emphasis you place on the number of A* at gcse/a levels? Do applicants get ranked or scored for the number of A/A* grades they have, or is each grade given a number of points then applicants ranked? Also am i right that for interview invites, you look at 2/3 of academics and the other 1/3 is ukcat score?

    Thanks!
    Hi AZ98, when deciding who to invite to interview, we look at two thirds academic grades and one third UKCAT score and post interview, when making offers we look at 50% interview score and 50% UKCAT score.

    As part of the initial screening system, the more A and A* GCSEs an applicant has, the higher the score will be and therefore the higher their chances of being selected for an interview.

    Hi
    I was just wondering if you did the same type of screening for foundation medicine as well. Thank you

    Yes I'm informed it's very similar. Applicants must also meet the contextual criteria as it a Widening Participation programme.
