Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic.  As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.

Could I ask you to think about the underlying question that is prompting
your data request. If you are attempting to find out what are your chances
of getting a place, remember that this cannot be answered by reference to
data.  At the LSE, each application is viewed holistically; assessing the
merit, potential, motivation, skills and qualities of applicants by
considering all the information presented on the application form. This
includes, but is not limited to, academic achievements and qualifications.
The personal statement, academic reference and additional social and
educational contextual data also form an important part of the selection
process. The Academic Selector will sometimes choose to make an offer to a
student with predicted grades below the standard entry requirements if the
applicant shows the merit and potential to succeed at LSE.  As the figures
from previous years will not offer any insight on the outcome of your
application, the best way to find the answer is to apply.

 

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact Rachael Maguire at [1][email address] or write to
Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political
Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the
response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You
can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office
[2]http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be
carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

 

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise
use such information.  Copying or reproducing such information in any way
either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an
infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging
to the LSE or a third party.

 

Best Wishes,
