We acknowledge receipt of your request and will respond as soon as we can.

FOI 2020/F13
Dear P. Chu
Thank you for your email of 7^th January.
I am afraid that we are not able to supply the information you have
requested. This is because we do hold data on predicted grades or work
experience in a standard format or in a way that we could report from. If
held, these would be on each individual application. We believe to look
this information up and cross-check with offers and actual grades, even
for one programme for one year, would exceed the appropriate limit as
defined by the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate
Limit) Regulations 2004. For your information this is £450, calculated as
the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours in determining whether
the information is held, then locating, retrieving and extracting the
information. Section 12 of the FOIA therefore makes provision for public
authorities to refuse such requests.
If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [1] for details.

Yours sincerely
Paul Smallcombe
Records & Information Compliance Manager
