n 2018 we received 1,792 UCAS applications (1,667 in 2017). Of these applicants 1,742 successfully registered for and sat the BMAT (1,581 in 2017). Any applicant who did not register for or did not sit the test had their application deemed incomplete, and was notified that their application was no longer under consideration. All data below relate to complete applications unless otherwise stated.


Approximately 21% of applicants submitted an open application, comparable to 2017.

36 applicants applied for deferred entry (34 applied in 2017 for deferred entry). Of these, 9 were shortlisted and interviewed, and 2 received an offer of a place for 2020 (compared to 2 last year who were offered places for 2019 and one that was made an offer for 2020).

62% of applicants were female (63% in 2017).

70% of applicants offered A-levels.

366 international fee-status applicants made complete applications.

13 graduates submitted applications (5 of these were international applicants).

Overall, approximately 25% of applicants who made complete applications were shortlisted (27% in 2017).



SHORTLISTING


As part of the process to decide which applicants are called to interview, we established a numerical ranking on the basis of GCSE performance and BMAT results (both quantitative and objective measures and equally weighted). If applicants had not taken GCSEs or IGCSEs ranking was based on BMAT score alone. This ranking formed the basis of an initial shortlist.


BMAT is the only element of an application that is common to all applicants for Medicine and giving as it does a snapshot of ability and aptitude, is an important selection tool when assessing a large number of extremely well qualified applicants.


We do not ascribe equal weighting to all sections of BMAT. In 2018, weightings were: section 1=40%, section 2=40%, and section 3=20%. In calculating the section 3 score, double weight was ascribed to the ‘Quality of content’ score and single weight given to the ‘Quality of English’ score (with A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1, and X=0).


The GCSE measure used was a combination of proportion of A* grades at GCSE and number of A* grades at GCSE (with equal weighting). For shortlisting purposes a grade 8 or 9 is considered equivalent to an A*. We also used GCSE performance data for schools in Great Britain and Northern Ireland to help tutors to assess whether an applicant's grades at GCSE may reflect an under- or over-performance within the context of the school at which they were taken. Therefore, it is possible that the chance of being shortlisted was increased/reduced if an applicant had a higher/lower proportion of A* grades than would be predicted for the average student applying to Oxford from their GCSE school.


The applications of candidates who did not make the initial shortlist were then reviewed by tutors, taking into account any individual circumstances - both academic and non-academic - that might indicate that GCSE and/or BMAT performance is likely to have underestimated their potential. Any applicants deemed worthy of further consideration were then reviewed by a cross-college panel, alongside applicants immediately below the initial shortlist. As a result of this process around 40 additional applicants were added to the shortlist.


For those shortlisted the mean adjusted BMAT score was 62%.

For those shortlisted who had taken GCSEs, the mean number of A*s at GCSE was 10.2 and the mean proportion of A*s at GCSE was 0.94.

1 graduate was shortlisted.

32 international fee-status applicants were shortlisted.



Interviews & Offers


Each applicant was seen at two colleges: the college of preference, or allocation if an open application was made, and one other randomly assigned by computer. For this reason, the number of applicants called for interview is fixed at 425 each year. The percentage called to Oxford is related to the size of the cohort applying for the course, and the number of places available.


Please note that colleges interview blind of college of choice (or allocation) and BMAT score.


Colleges made 154 quota offers, 2 deferred offers and 14 open offers (which means the applicant is guaranteed a place at Oxford to study Medicine, but will not be assigned to a college until after A-level results are known).


The overall success rate for male applicants was 9.7%; the overall success rate for female applicants was 9.8%.

For those with an offer of a place, the mean adjusted BMAT score was 63.5%.

For those with an offer of a place who had taken GCSEs, the mean number of A*s at GCSE was 10.4 and the mean proportion of A* at GCSE was 0.95.

No graduate applicants received an offer of a place (graduates compete with school-leavers for places; there is no separate quota).

5 international fee-status applicants received an offer.

39% of offers were made by colleges other than the college of preference (or allocation). This compares with 44% in 2017.



GCSEs & BMAT


In 2018, male applicants did slightly better on BMAT than female applicants, while female applicants performed slightly better in GCSEs than male applicants.


The following graphs, showing the distribution of the number of A*s achieved at GCSE and the proportion of GCSEs at A* (pA*) and adjusted BMAT scores for the 2018 cohort, offer a rough guide to prospective applicants.

You will be assigned a current black student who will mentor you, encourage you and dispel the unhelpful myths that surround Oxford. You will also be taught how to approach aptitude tests, have mock interviews, attend workshops and have one to one sessions. In 2013, 50% of Target Oxbridge students got places. In 2017 it was 36%

Explaining to Target Oxbridge (BAME) applicants what this excellent Oxford scheme is all about and telling what a great opportunity it is. Copied and pasted from a book I am writing about Oxford access.

Proverbs 19:17 (NIV)
“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward them for what they have done.”

Was doing a survey/questionnaire and the question was "Why should Christians help the poor?"
