Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Bournemouth University,

I was hoping you could answer some inquiries I have regarding your university and attendance.

1. How many students enrolled to the universities in the years 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2014 as first years?

2. How many students continued their study into second year for each of these years?

3. What is the drop out rate of pupils for each of these years?
- If you could break this down into a course by course statistic this would be very helpful

4. Were some students deducted marks for not attending lectures in the 2016/2017 academic year? Specifically based on knowledge from the BAMMJ course

5. What was the paperwork behind this i.e. which clause allowed for deduction of marks for non attendance? Was the system dropped? Why have no other courses been operated in the same way with mark deduction?

Yours faithfully,
