academic scoring principles
Academic Scoring – Principles

Principles

  • 16-06-06: Initial meeting (ISC representation) discussion of the ‘rules’ for the ranking process
  • Wider discussion amongst the student body to reach the final agreed approach
  • Summary of agreed ranking process:
    • performance in Clinical Phases 1 and 2
    • final overall mark being derived from the following by evaluating a credit weighted mean across the 8 modules
    • Untaken (1st sit) assessments excluded and total credits reduced in weighted sum
academic scoring overall score
Academic Scoring – Overall score

Credit weighted mean across the 8 modules (total out of 26000)

  • Clinical Practice *– Total CP % (based from combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 50/50 ratio) x 50
  • CFU – CFU % x 15
  • Therapeutics –Therapeutics % x 15
  • Child Health – Total % (based on combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 50/50 ratio) x 50
  • Obstetrics and Gynaecology - Total % (based on combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 50/50 ratio) x 50
  • Health Care of the Elderly – HCE % (based on combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 33/67 ratio) x 20
  • Psychiatry – Total % (based on combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 50/50 ratio) x 30
  • Specials - Specials % (based on combined Knowledge/Skills mark in a 50/50 ratio) x 30

* CP Ratio is 50:50 for those beginning CP in Feb 2011 and for those graduating in 2013; until then 70:30 is used

Academic Scoring – Ranking score
  • Whole final year are then ranked according to the overall percent score
  • Academic Ranking Component of MTAS Application comprises 40% of the final score (with the other 60% coming from the non-academic component)
  • Each medical school divides final year into quartiles according to their academic score ranking
  • % mark out of 40 to use in the Application will be
    • 40 for those on 75thcentile and above
    • 38 for those on 50thcentile up to 75thcentile
    • 36 for those on 25thcentile up to 50th centile
    • 34 for those below the 25th centile
  • Any resit student is automatically in the 4th quartile

epm deciles for december 2011
EPM – Deciles for December 2011
  • Process for calculating aggregate score exactly as before – same basket of assessments and weightings
  • Whole final year are then ranked according to the overall percent score
  • Deciles will score: 43, 42, 41, 40, 39,38, 37 36, 35, 34
  • Final Year Resit students will NOT be automatically placed in former lowest score (34 in quartiles) but student retains original ranking from earlier round and decile used
  • ISFP feeds back your decile in March 2012
