Dear Akkarasorn

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 5^th March 2021 and
clarification of 26^th March 2021. Apologies for the delay in responding
to your request.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for information about UCL’s LLB Laws (M100) programme for the
2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 admissions cycles.

 

You clarified that:

o For question 2, you are willing to accept a list of LNAT scores of
those who firmed their offer and met their conditions.
o For question 9, by ‘offer rate’ you mean the number in question 8
divided by the number in question 7 expressed as a percentage.
o For question 10, by ‘international’ you mean the people whose home
domicile is outside the UK.

 

We can confirm that we do hold some information of the description
specified in your request and this information is provided embedded in
your request below.

 

Your Request:

 

 1. LNAT average scores for offers during the aforementioned admission
cycle years

 

Admission cycle Average LNAT score
2016/17 27
2017/18 26
2018/19 26
2019/20 27

 

 

 2. A complete, anonymised list of all the scores for the LNAT
multiple-choice section that were achieved by students who enrolled in
the M100 law course following the aforementioned admissions period.

 

o This information has been withheld under Section 40(2) of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) by virtue of Section 40(3A)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information from a response to a request under the FOIA when the
information requested is personal data relating to someone other than the
requester, and its disclosure would breach any of the Data Protection
principles.

 

In this case we believe that the disclosure of a list of scores for the
LNAT multiple-choice section achieved by students could not be fully
anonymised, and would not be within their reasonable expectations and as
such would be unfair and in breach of the first Data Protection principle
which requires personal data to be processed fairly and lawfully.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 6. A complete, anonymised list of all IB grades achieved by the students
who enrolled in the M100 law course following the aforementioned
admissions cycle.

 

o This information has been withheld under Section 40(2) of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) by virtue of Section 40(3A)(i).
