AS results of applicants

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear London School of Economics,

For the most recent set of data you have I would like to know:

1) The lowest AS results of an applicant who received an offer for any course

2) The lowest AS results of an applicant who received an offer for LLB (M100)

3) The average number of A*s at GCSE of applicants who received offers for any course

4) The average number of A*s at GCSE of applicants who received offers for LLB (M100)

Yours faithfully,

R Irshad

Dear R Irshad,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, the School's response is below.

1) The lowest AS results of an applicant who received an offer for any course
2) The lowest AS results of an applicant who received an offer for LLB (M100)

My colleague who provides this data has said that the data is incomplete as we are reliant on what the applicants provide us. Not all provide AS level data. When they do, there are many cases where the grade is listed as a UMS score rather than a grade (191/200 instead of A, B, C etc.) and also many cases where applicants only list the AS level that they didn't take forward to A2. As such, we are unable to categorically state what the lowest AS results are, either overall or for LLB offer holders.

3) The average number of A*s at GCSE of applicants who received offers for any course
- 5.82

4) The average number of A*s at GCSE of applicants who received offers for LLB (M100)
6.31

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Andrew Webb, 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.
