10 places and I think about 500+ applications
Thanks for the reply. But what I actually meant was how are your GCSE's, A-levels and UCAT scored? And what's the max score you can achieve, which will then determine who's interviewed?

UCAT is scored out of 40 points. GCSE are scored out of 30 points. STJ Band is scored out of 15 points and 15 points for contextual data. I don't think A-level are scored as longer as you have achieved or predicted ABB. If you have being predicted above ABB then you are not eligible for this course.

Alternative offers and fast-track interviews to students who successfully complete one of the following:
the University of York’s Next Step York programme
the University of York’s Pathways to STEM programme
the Realising Opportunities programme
the Hull York Medical School Pathways to Medicine programme
Fast-track to interview for care leavers

you dont apply for it. they will just give it to you automatically if you have stated that you are a carer or looked after by local authority. They also look at candidate’s home postcode is in an area of low participation (POLAR quintile 1 or 2). They also give points if you went to their STEM Program, HYMS Med pathway program etc. I think you have to meet 2 of them in order to be eligible. call them or email Hull York to confirm.

Wow thanks, so detailed.
Do you happen to know the specific points given for each section? e.g. B= 2points, 600 avg = 15 etc
Or is this information kept private?

. Sorry I don't rly k the specific points given in each section but I do know that the point system tend to change every year depending on overall cohort. It's a really competitive course as it only have 10 places so I am guessing A* is 3, A is 2 and B is 1.
btw may I ask where are you applying for Med?

Do HYMS only interview people applying for gateway year at the Hull campus - since you study there for a year - or can you select to be interviewed at York too.

Hi I was just wondering about the widening participation requirements for the Foundation year medical school programme. One of the requirements are you need to have received the UCAT bursary. Do we need to email them the evidence or would the university already know that I received the bursary?

No you don’t have to meet that criteria as it says to meet two of the three contextual data. The other two are your parents do you have higher education and you received the UCAT bursary. If you meet both those criteria’s then you don’t need to meet the post code criteria.

Admission team will automatically know whether you received a bursary or not because that information ll be given to admission tutors by our UCAT centres who ll send our ucat scores.
