Dear Claire

I acknowledge receipt of your email received by this office on 19th May 2021.

Your request will now be dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and has been allocated reference FOI21-198 which should be quoted in all correspondence. We will respond to your request within 20 working days starting the next working day after receipt, therefore you can expect to receive a response no later than 17th June 2021.

Please note that in order to fulfil your request we need to liaise with other teams across the University. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic most staff are now working remotely and have intermittent access to information held in hard copy. Staff may not be able to assist as they may need to prioritise other work, cover for colleagues who are ill or be away from work themselves due to illness. However, we will do our best to meet this deadline and keep you informed should we be unable to do so.

Where we consider that we will not be able to meet the deadline or if further time is required to consider the public interest test we will contact you as soon as possible and give you a revised date for response.

In some circumstances a fee may be payable and, if that is the case, we will let you know. A fees notice will be issued to you, and you will be required to pay before we will proceed to deal with your request.

Yours sincerely

All applicants who narrowly miss meeting the offer of AAA will be taken to
the Admissions Group and discussed on a case-by-case basis during results
week in August each year.
