A Level and Degree Results

We are awaiting further details from the Government following the announcement on Wednesday 18 March 2020 that no exams will take place this summer. Those undertaking a degree will need to wait for guidance from their own University and we suggest that they contact us when they know more.

Once the situation becomes clearer, and the options available to the University are known, we will contact applicants with further details.

Occupational Health Forms

We are currently in consultation with Occupational Health and will be extending the deadline for return of the form. We will contact applicants with important updates.


For 2020 entry we have received over 1700 applications for A100 and over 200 applications for A104.

At the moment we are busy checking applications and sending the roles and responsibilities form to admissions tutors for scoring. With such a detailed process it does take quite a while for us to select the highest ranking applicants for interview. Interview notifications will be sent out on a rolling basis and many applicants may not receive a decision until the New Year.

Please see our entry requirement pages for entry criteria and also our Medicine Admissions Policy 2020 Entry.


Once you have selected an interview date, you will not be able to change it. We are only able to offer alternative dates for those with extenuating circumstances.

Our selection process requires candidates to be interviewed before any offer can be made. Approximately 600 applicants will be invited for an interview. Interviews are scheduled to take place in December, January, February and March. More details about the interview can be found below and in our Interview section

An early interview does not indicate a better application or that you are more likely to receive an offer. Offers are based on performance at interview and, in borderline cases, UCAT score. 

We have so far completed about a third of our planned interviews and will be continuing to interview through January and February. We plan to start making offers mid-January and all decisions will be sent to UCAS by the 31 March 2020 deadline.

Applicants invited for interview for the A104 Health Foundation Year route may claim for a travel bursary up to a maximum value of £50.00. Applicants will need to complete a travel expense form and provide original receipts within 3 months of travel.

In February, March and April we run Offer Holder Days for those holding offers. This enables candidates to view all the university facilities and talk to staff and students before making their final UCAS decisions.

Exam results and re-marks

Due to the HEFCE quota of places allocated to us as a medical school, our numbers are tightly controlled. Therefore when the A level results are published in August 2019 we will make our decision based on those grades. If you don't meet the academic terms of your offer and subsequently decide to appeal to the Examination Board for a re-mark, you must advise us of this immediately in writing. Our admissions policy states that we may defer entry for applicants who do not initially meet the terms of their offer, but who do so after a re-mark.
