Dear John,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached the information you requested.

My colleague who provided the data also said the following:
"One thing I should point out is that the data doesn't match up directly to the response given to the requester last time around. First difference is the number given for Offerholders meeting or exceeding their offer, this is because the previous response didn't include Offerholders who choose us as their Insurance choice, but did meet the offer. This was a mistake on my part, I think mainly as the requester also asked about Firm acceptances, so I worked off the assumption that was the only thing they were looking at.

The other discrepancy is in the avaerage number of each A level grade; last time I was solely looking at predicted grades as requested, rather than all A level results listed on the UCAS application (both predicted, and achieved by those applying post-qualified). This time around the requester has asked for the number of applicants with predicted/achieved A Level grades so I think this is a more consistent and accurate way of providing this data".

Please note also, each applicant to LSE is considered on his/her merit and in competition with the rest of the applicant cohort in a given admissions cycle. Each application is viewed holistically; assessing the merit, potential, motivation, skills and qualities of applicants by considering all the information presented on the application form. This includes, but is not limited to, academic achievements and qualifications. The personal statement, academic reference and additional social and educational contextual data also form an important part of the selection process. The holistic selection process also applies for confirmation decisions.

Not all applicants to LSE present with GCSE, A-Level or IB qualifications. LSE accepts a wide range of different qualifications for direct entry to undergraduate programmes, full details of this can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions website. In addition, certain subjects are excluded from any offers made (again, full details can be found on the Undergraduate Admissions website).

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise use such information.

Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging to the LSE or a third party.

Yours sincerely,
Rachael Maguire
