My friend; let me explain in terms that you may understand...

OXBRIDGE REFERS TO OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE... SEEING AS YOU CAN ONLY APPLY TO EITHER OR I AM USING THEM BOTH TOGETHER AS THEY ARE THE HARDEST UNIVERSITIES TO GET INTO

As for 25/27 being the cut off for 2019, you are simply incorrect. Sorry, there's no other way to put it. It appears you have made a severe and continuous lapse in your judgement. It was actually 24/27.
That was the average score of applicants not the cutoff score.

does Cardiff have to score any best 9 GCSE s or they have to include English language compulsorily in this? my son had 7 for English lit and 6 For English language. wondered whether the 6 in English language can be omitted for best 9 GCSE calculation? thanks

does nonacademic criteria get scored along with academic criteria before interview invitations done or only applications that met academic criteria are assessed further for nonacademic criteria before decisions for interview are done?

That was an average score, and does not clearly exclude contextuals. I also says for 2018/19 which I suspect means 2018 entry, given that at the end of August (when this FOI was made), med schools would not have finalised info for the 2019 entry cohort. If you check the website at the moment, they are talking of the 2020/21 cycle, ie 2020 entry running to 2021 - different unis use "cycle" to mean different things.
They have (reluctantly) stated that the minimum score to receive an interview for a standard, non-contextual applicant was 26 for 2018 entry and 25 for 2019 entry

In my GCSES I got 9 9's and 2 7's ( one of the 7's was in English language) hence my score will be 26/27. Tbh I am not sure if the cutoff will go to 27 but if it does, applicants that achieve a higher number of the grade 9's but not in one of their compulsory scoring subjects miss out.

I appreciate this, and it very frustrating. when I applied I was in the same position, (had all A*s and 1A but the A was in a compulsory subject) so my score was also 26/27.

we will have to see what happens, I don't think we can predict it at this stage. I do think it makes sense for Cardiff to specify subjects which must be scored as its a way to sort of even our those who do many more GCSEs with those who only do 9. I know some students who had like 14 GCSEs.

best of luck with your application.

I got 9A*s and 2As in my GCSEs but one of the A’s was in Biology. However, I’m on a gap year and have already sat my A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and have achieved grades of A*A*A respectively. Does this mean I will get 26/27 for GCSEs and then a further 8 points for achieved grades meaning a total of 34??

Yes, except an A* in geography, photography, food technology, music, textiles, atronomy, etc may be considered to be less likely to be relevant to studying to be a Dr than English, maths and the sciences. Med schools frequently give compulsory subjects as they are more relevant to the subject being studied.
An applicant could have 9A*s but 4/5/6s in core subjects meaning a med school may feel they are less prepared/suited for a medical degree (I am not saying I agree with this, but med schools that use GCSEs to select want good GCSEs, Newcastle and Cambridge have literally zero GCSE requirements and Imperial just a 6 in Eng Lang)
