A statement on admissions for 2020 entry

17 August 2020

A message from Professor Una Macleod, Dean

Following on from this afternoon’s decision by the government to move away from Ofqual’s Standardised Grades, towards Centre Assessed Grades, we are aware that many of of our applicants for 2020 entry will have questions about their offers and their places to study here at Hull York Medical School.

We are committed to providing students with opportunity to fulfil their ambitions of studying medicine and appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to reach this point. We are awaiting further information as to how and when we will receive formal notification of Centre Assessed Grades, and until then will not be able to make any formal changes to offers. We would like to ask applicants for their patience and understanding over the next 24-48 hours while we find out more about how the revised system will work moving forwards.

If you are an offer holder whose place has not yet been confirmed, or if you received a rejection on the basis of your Ofqual Standardised Grade, and you have now met the requirements of your original offer, we will honour your place to study here at Hull York Medical School, either in 2020 (should our limited Clinical Placement capacity permit this) or in 2021, should we not have the capacity to be able  to accommodate you in 2020.

Our Student Recruitment and Admissions Team will be contacting all offer holders in due course so please do check your inbox.

I do appreciate that these are unusual circumstances, but would like to offer assurance that we will do everything we can to support our medicine applicants during what we know is a distressing time.

Professor Una Macleod, Dean
