5) The number of successful applicants who applied with HL analysis and approaches maths
6) The average IB predicted score for candidates

Please provide the admission data separately for each course and each year
Thank you for your answers.
Thank you for your email. Please consider this as confirmation that your
request has been received and will be processed in line with statutory
deadlines. If there are any delays in responding we will let you know.
With regards to your recent FoI enquiry, as you have only identified yourself by your first name please can you supply appropriate proof of your correct identity, such as a scan of your passport of driver's licence.
I am seeking this information as there is a possibility that we may exempt some of the information you have requested. In such cases, it is important that we are able to refer to your real name in order to allow you to request an internal review or ultimately complain to the ICO if you choose to do so, as both the LSE and the ICO do not accept first-name only requests in their tribunals. Please note: This information will not be retained once your identify has been confirmed.
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. Applications are considered on their individual merits, based on a holistic view of your supporting documents in the context of the current cohort. Figures from previous years will not offer any insight on your application. Your best way to find the answer is to apply. However, please let me know if you wish us to proceed with obtaining the information requested.
