Dear Mr Sakaya

Colleagues have asked me to get in touch with you to request clarification in relation to your request below. Specifically, they would be grateful if you could clarify:

1) When you say (I) GCSE, do you mean you would like us to treat GCSEs and iGCSEs as equivalent?
2) We are unable to provide data on the current cycle (year of entry 2018/19) - would you like us to respond just on 2017/18 and 2016/17?
3) Your request states that you would like data for these 'entry years' - would you like that to include applicants who applied for deferred entry in the previous cycle, or just those applying for direct entry?

Your request will be placed on hold until we receive the requested clarification from you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
Donna Walker
Information Governance Officer
Durham University

Dear Access I.,

Apologies for the inconvenience caused. To clarify 1), yes I mean to treat both IGCSE and GCSE as equivalent. 2) Yes, that would be great. 3) I mean those who only applied for direct entry.

I hope this clears things up.

Yours sincerely,
Lamar Sakaya
