In arriving at their decisions, the panel will judge the motivation and potential of the applicant through reference to their personal statement required as part of the application process.

All applications will be anonymised prior to the panel review. This process will take place in the second full week of October and applicants will be informed of the outcome of their application week commencing 17th October.
