1. Overall score (comprised of academic quartile score and application form score) was used as the outcome to examine the effect of intercalation. This was followed by application score as the outcome. Ordered logistic regression analysis of student performance was used for quartile score. Quartile score (from exam results and subsequent position in cohort) was used as the outcome for this analysis. The model was adjusted for baseline Year 1 results, graduate status, year of graduation, and course type.
