Dear Ms Roe

 

I refer to your request of 25 June 2019, in which you requested to know
how the Medical Admissions Committee decides from year to year how to
distribute the General Category places between First Year and Graduate
applicants. There is no prescribed rule on this matter applied by the
Medical Admissions Committee in making this decision. In past years,
however, approximately 20-25% of General Category places have been taken
by Graduate applicants.

 

Yours sincerely

Rebecca Ewert

General Counsel

University of Auckland

Dear Rebecca Ewert,

I apologise my request for information was not as clear as it may have been.

What *was* the basis for the decision (2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014)?

It is another way of asking what *kinds* of information the Medical Admissions Committee factored into their decision making calculus.

For example: Candidates last name (indicator of race), gender, secondary school attended, parental occupation, NZ Dep score of home address.

Or does the Medical Admissions Committee ONLY base their decision on row data (UMAT linked to GPA linked to interview score) in which case one (or a combination of those) is the answer.

A person in New Zealand,

Kelly Roe.

Yours sincerely,

K Roe

From: Rebecca Ewert
University of Auckland

Dear Ms Roe,

 

I refer to your request of 20 July 2019. The Medical Admissions
Committee’s decisions about offers in the General Category are made on the
basis of the de-identified ranked general list, which does not include
candidate names, genders, secondary schools, parental occupations, or NZ
Dep scores of home addresses. Factors that have been taken into account by
the Medical Admissions Committee in making waitlist offers in the General
Category are the typically high numbers of offer declines from Graduate
General Category applicants and the fact that some of the offers made to
Graduate General Category applicants will require them to successfully
complete Part I courses before proceeding to Part II of the MBChB
programme in the following year (in accordance with regulation 2(b) of the
MBChB regulations).

 

Yours sincerely

Rebecca Ewert

General Counsel

University of Auckland
