The estimated, underlying, uncensored distributions of A-level ability in medical school applicants and acceptances are shown for W candidates (red lines and open points) and NW candidates (green lines and solid points). The leftmost two lines with circles joined by thick lines show the fitted distribution for the percentages of applicants with particular A-level points, whereas the rightmost two solid lines with square points show the fitted distribution for the percentages of entrants with particular numbers of A-level points; all four lines use the left-hand ordinate. The dashed, ascending lines use the right-hand ordinate and show the fitted proportions of candidates with particular number of A-level points who are accepted, red for W applicants and green for NW applicants.
