We refer to your information request dated 20 December 2021 made under the Official Information Act 1982 (Act).

We have decided to grant your request. However, the University's Medical School has not yet confirmed final numbers for its 2022 MB ChB programme. This includes final admission numbers under the HSFY general category, the graduate category and each of the priority groups, and also the academic scores and GPA data that you have requested. The data will not be known and therefore will not be available until the end of March 2022 - as student offers continue until the end of the third week of teaching in Semester One. The reasons for late offers relate to students declining entry to the programme after it has commenced (which is permitted provided it is done by the end of the third week) or having to defer for unanticipated reasons.

Please note that for privacy and student wellbeing reasons, the University's standard practice is not to report on numbers where those numbers are below 5. Where the numbers are very low, there is a risk that the identity of those individuals can be determined/inferred. Outcomes for groups with fewer than 5 individuals will be reported as "<5" (fewer than 5), and academic scores are not provided for such groups (reported as withheld ("W/H"). Withholding this information is consistent with section 9(2)(a) of the Act, and we do not consider that the reasons for withholding this information is outweighed by other consideration which would make it desirable in the public interest to make the information available.

We will be in touch with regards to the requested information once this data has been confirmed and is available.

If you are not satisfied with our response to your information request, section 28(3) of the Act provides you with the right to ask an Ombudsman to investigate and review this response. However, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns with you first.
