Abstract
Investigation into student success in the first year of an osteopathy programme Standard entry requirements are not consistent across similar programmes internationally – some require Chemistry, others emphasise Biology Applicants over 20 years of age can be considered for ‘special admission’ if they provide evidence of aptitude or relevant prior experience Are current academic requirements useful for predicting success, or are they overly restrictive? Are students meeting the standard academic requirements more likely to succeed? Can achievement in particular subjects predict student success? Do students see particular subjects as being necessary or helpful for success?
