Is there anywhere that I can find the usual number of places available on courses please? I’ve done loads of research, pretty much decided EH would make the list and then found they offer between 15-30 places to their top applicants??
it's technically the same applicant: offer ratio as any other medical school. it obviously just looks scary because its only 15. I read somewhere they had about 250 applicants last year.

You can check websites and FOIs

For 2021, Edge Hill had 19 places; 311 Applications; 107 Interviews and made 28 Offers.
They did make 40 offers for 2020 entry, but were obviously more sensible than some about over-offering last year!

So an applicant to offer ratio of about 11 and an interview to offer ratio of 26%

UCL had an applicant to offer ratio of 3.7 last year and interview to offer of 89%; Barts was 2.8 and interview to offer 73%; Liverpool 5.7 and 29%; UEA 3.5 and 69% (all Home applicants), to give you some comparisons

I can't decide between Plymouth (cutoff 2400) or Edge Hill (cutoff 2500) and I have 2460 I know both are subject to change but with increased competition for both I can't tell which is 'safer'? Plus the fact there's only 30 places max for home students is it worth applying?

I was literally just about to send off my application and this thread is making me reconsider :0. But tbh I don't think I'm eligible to apply elsewhere if I wanted to switch to another uni so I think I'll just take the gamble lol

Because I'm a resit student and my CAGs were low so even some unis who do accept resits won't accept me as they need a certain grade on the first attempt. Bit of a crappy situation tbh
