MBChB GPA Calculation

K Roe made this Official Information request to University of Otago

The request was successful.

From: K Roe

Dear University of Otago,

September 11 - 2019 I made 2 official requests for information.

Kelly Roe to Andrea Howard Wednesday September 11, 10:35am

I am emailing you in your capacity as Director, Policy and Programmes, Division of Health Sciences.

This is an official request for information.

The University of Otago informed me 30 April, 2018 by official correspondence that with respect to my application to MBChB in 2010 'following interview, the applicant received an interview score of 21.25, ranking her 31 out of 33.'

Please can the University supply for me what they calculated my GPA to be (and disclose their algorithm) and also inform me what my ranking was prior to interview.

Also

Kelly Roe to Andrea Howard on Wednesday September 11, 12:10pm

I am emailing you in your capacity as Director Policy and Programmes, Division of Health Sciences.

This is an official request for information.

Please can the University supply for me the lowest GPA of any person accepted to MBChB program who applied under 'Alternative' category, for that same year.

Also

Kelly Roe to Andrea Howard on Tuesday, September 17, 11:14am

I am writing in relation to the 2 official requests for information that I emailed you September 11, 2019.

I have not received acknowledgment that the appropriate person has received those requests.

If I not receive acknowledgment by Friday then I will post them to FYI.org.nz so it is easier for me to be seen to be following process.

Yours faithfully,

K Roe

Dear Kelly

 

I acknowledge your two requests. I advise that the person you sent them to
is no longer at the University, hence the lack of initial response.  We
will respond in due course, and no later than November 4, 2019 to your FYI
request.

 

Kind regards

 

Chris Stoddart

Registrar and Secretary to the Council

Dear University of Otago Registrar,

I am surprised that the emails I sent were not automatically forwarded to the person taking over the role.

As soon as practicable.

The reason I have been inquiring about the processing of my application in recent years is because I have reason to believe my application was mis-processed.

At the conclusion of my interview Dr Alison Belton asked me how I had done. I said I was a little concerned (after a euthanasia 'discussion' where I clearly was not allowed to express anything at all other than 'nonononono under no circumstances never at all')... And she looked me in the eyes. Genuine smiles. `You did really well'. I did not believe her to be a psychopath.

I have been confused about this ever since.

Yours sincerely,

K Roe
