Published 07 March 2024

The UKFPO can confirm that this morning all 9,702 eligible applicants for the 2024 Foundation Programme were allocated to a Foundation School, with 75% of those applicants getting their first preference. 

This is an improvement on last year when 8655 applicants were placed and 71% got their first preference.

The allocation process this year was changed to a Preference Informed Allocation (PIA) method.  This new process saw applicants being given a computer-generated rank and the removal of the requirement to sit the Situational Judgement Test (SJT).
