Dear Pierre,

 

Thank you for your request for information received by The University of
Manchester on 19 June 2020 which was as follows:

 

I would like to request all past examination papers from the BAEcon
Accounting and Finance programme covering the academic years 2016/2017,
2017/2018 and 2018/2019.

 

The University has now considered your request and unfortunately the
information you are seeking cannot be provided at this time. We have
liaised with staff in the relevant school and they have advised that
BAEcon Accounting and Finance students have the option to take any School
of Social Sciences course unit and their core units are made up from BMAN
units offered in Alliance Manchester Business School. There are many
different course units offered to students that they could take to form
the BAEcon Accounting and Finance degree – please see the link
[1]https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/under...
which is for the 2020/21 year however this demonstrates just how many
course unit options there are (40 in year one, 74 in year two and 62 in
year three – 176 in total). Numbers will be similar across the three years
you have requested. Due to this large number, and the fact that exam
papers for all of the courses are not stored centrally, and some will be
within a different school to the School of Social Sciences where the
course sits, it is not possible to collate all of these at this time
within the 18 hour ‘Appropriate Limit’ (as defined in the Freedom of
Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations
2004). As a result, Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
applies and regrettably this task cannot be undertaken at this stage. This
email serves to act as a refusal notice for this request, as per Section
17 (5) of the Act.

 

Section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 imparts a duty on public
authorities to provide advice and assistance to applicants to frame their
requests to bring them within the ‘Appropriate Limit’. At the moment, your
request is a catch-all that undermines the public interest in disclosure.
We would encourage you to view the attached link and request only those
for course units that are of particular interest to you, bearing in mind a
reasonable number that might be feasible within the timescale is likely to
be only for a handful of the course units.

 

If you feel that The University of Manchester has refused access to
information to which you are entitled, or has not dealt with your request
appropriately under the FOIA, you have a right of appeal.

 

An appeal in the first instance should be directed to the Information
Governance Office at [2][email address]. You should include: 

·         details of your initial request

·         any other relevant information

 

You must make this appeal within 40 working days from receipt of your
response. We will not accept appeals received after this date, as per the
Freedom of Information Code of Practice, Section 5.3.

 

The University will deal with your appeal within a reasonable time, and
will inform you of the projected time scale on receipt of your complaint.
You are also welcome to contact the Information Governance Office with
informal questions about the handling of your request. 

 

After The University’s internal appeals procedure has been exhausted, you
have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s
Office. Details of this procedure can be found at [3]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards

 

Sharon

Dear University of Manchester,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Manchester's handling of my FOI request 'BAEcon Accounting and Finance past exam papers - 2016/2017, 2017/2018 and 2018/2019'.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/b...

Yours faithfully,

Pierre Gemayel

Dear Pierre,

 

I am writing regarding your email dated 21 July 2020 requesting an
internal review of your Freedom of Information request below:

 

I would like to request all past examination papers from the BAEcon
Accounting and Finance programme covering the academic years 2016/2017,
2017/2018 and 2018/2019.

 

I have now had an opportunity to review the way in which we responded. I
note that we responded within the timeframe required by the FOI Act. I
have then gone on to consider the application of Section 12 of the Act and
in doing so I have further liaised with the relevant department within the
University where necessary.

 

The review has now been concluded and we can respond as follows:

 

As previously noted BAEcon Accounting and Finance students have the option
to take any School of Social Sciences course unit and their core units are
made up from BMAN units offered in Alliance Manchester Business School –
for this academic year there are 176 units and the school has confirmed
that there will be a similar number for the three years that you have
requested. Given the large number of papers and the fact that all the data
is not held centrally it will be a substantial task to collate this data.
It has been estimated that it would take over 35 hours to provide a
response. We have estimated that it would take approximately 4 minutes to
check whether a person from the course over the 3 years took one of the
units and then find the paper -  that would be 528 units  x 4 minutes
meaning 35.2 hours. As this task would take in excess of the 18 hour
‘Appropriate Limit’ we believe that Section 12 of the Act has been
correctly applied.

 

Section 16 of the FOIA imparts a duty on public authorities to provide
advice and assistance to requesters so that they can bring their request
within the limit. As such I can advise that if you narrow your request
e.g. if you are a former student we could provide the course units you
studied or alternatively we can look into providing the compulsory units.
Please do write back if you wish us to look into providing this to you.

 

To conclude, the University upholds our original response and confirms
that Section 12 has been correctly applied. This concludes your request
but if you are unhappy with our response you have the further right to
appeal to the Information Commissioner’s Office. Details of this procedure
can be found at [1]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards

 

Alex
