To be invited to an interview under this scheme, candidates should achieve a minimum score of 60% in the essential criteria to be eligible for the guaranteed interview. In setting the essential requirements, care has been taken to ensure care leavers will not be disadvantaged.

The scoring criteria is set out below.

  1. No answer given or answer completely irrelevant.  No examples given.
  2. Question answered but no examples/irrelevant examples given.
  3. Some points covered.  Relevant information given.  Some examples given.
  4. Strong answer.  All points addressed.  All points relevant.  Good examples.

If you would like to apply under the Care Leaver Guaranteed Interview Scheme, please indicate this on the relevant section of the application. Please note, the declaration will be checked against your student records to confirm eligibility.
