Indeed, our aim here in TSR is to make med school selection as transparent as possible.

Sadly many med schools don't even release their scoring system so many candidates are in fact, applying "blind".
About your transparent scoring system! How does it work in relation to Graduate applicants? Are transcripts scored? What scoring mechanism is employed for Graduates?

I don't know... I only said our mission on TSR is to make them more transparent.

GANFYD do you know?

No idea, sorry. And would not really help if I did, as KMMS then apply their own contextualisation system to all applicants and do not say what this involves. Last year we saw people with high UCAT and good grades rejected over those with lower scores because of some voodoo magic they did behind the scenes. I view KMMS as pretty much one giant WP programme, and this is not my area of expertise, I am afraid

I don't know if this is any help but I was watching the KMMS open day video from June time and they said they contextualise your grades according to your school ie. if you score highly in your exams compared to other people from your school then you're likely to get in. I guess this may be the same for graduates but you'd be best off emailing KMMS admissions. Also they said they don't use the personal statement much to decide although they do look at it and use more of the extra curricular/volunteering side of things to make a decision. Hope that helps.

They published how they score graduates via an FOI. They first apply the UCAT and SJT threshold and then score each graduate out of 10. SJT (1-3), degree class (1-2), evidence that favours NHS service in the Kent region (1-2). There is some ambiguity regarding the where the remaining 3 points are allocated.
