See all About this product Product Information Providing prospective medical students with everything they need to know to win a place at medical school, from application deadlines and writing the personal statement to facing the interview. Twenty per-cent of our intake was from GB and 10 per-cent were International. It will take time to determine whether interviewing our applicants improves the quality of our students.
Overall we have increased the diversity of our entry cohort both in terms of nationality and academic background.
We have been actively recruiting both nationally and internationally for several years and the number of GB applicants has increased 10 fold with an 8 fold increase in International applicants over the past 5 years. Both University colleagues and our NHS partners have supported the selection process and without their help it would not have been possible.
Involving the public in the process has been important as we are recruiting the doctors who will eventually serve them. Bringing applicants from GB and ROI to Belfast and offering them tours of the medical school has increased conversion. Active recruitment, updating our websites, improved promotional material and offering interviews in SE Asia has increased our International applications.
For entry we hope to offer International applicants the opportunity of being interviewed in Belfast and we also plan to hold interviews in N America. Managerially we have been able to interview nearly applicants in 4 days thanks to the efficiency of Admissions QUB who have computerised Stage 1 of the process along with our excellent school assessment office staff who have professionalised the process. It is humbling that 28 per-cent of our entry cohort have at least 1 A star and 7 per-cent have 4 A stars.
By employing borderline regression we were able to be confident that we are admitting applicants with levels of non -cognitive competencies that are acceptable to our assessors and this also allowed us to ensure equity when considering International applicants. All selection tests are biased to some extent but it was reassuring to see that female school leavers did as well as graduate applicants.
Male school leavers who excel at UKCAT did less well and we carefully looked at our stations to ensure that they were not biased against them. Our process also allows for multiple points of entry A-level, post A-level and graduate and we would hope that feedback to applicants will improve their performance if they choose to apply second time around. He argues that averaging across many flawed judgments yields good information. Entry to Medicine at QUB is competitive and becoming more so. There is no perfect selection process.
Our remit is to make our process as fair and transparent as possible so that will withstand the Freedom of Information requests that inevitably flow when some candidates and their parents are disappointed. I would like to acknowledge the help given to establishing this selection process by our statistician Mr Mike Stevenson , our Deputy Director for Admissions Dr.

Accepted Jul This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Introduction Most medical schools both internationally and in the UK select on the basis of academic ability and intellect along with the determination of key personal competencies associated with success in the medical profession.
Results We interviewed 70 per-cent of our local and EU applicants who had achieved 37 points or better as a result of their previous academic achievement when combined with results of their UKCAT aptitude test. Table 1 Ten point plan used to obtain Multiple Mini Interview score. Station scores converted to percentages 3.
Percentages regressed on global scores to estimate cut-score for each station 4. Cut-scores are averaged across all stations used on particular days — so 4 different average CS obtained 5. Pooled standard deviation within days of unadjusted average score obtained SD 6. Alpha-coefficients obtained for each day: Average weighted by number of participants per day calculated alpha 7. SEM added to CS for each day 9.
Students are ranked from highest to lowest based on adjusted score. Any student below Open in a separate window.
