Dear Mr Brown,

I write following your request dated 18 September 2014 (below) under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The University considers that it has already released to you the anonymised subjects and grades of students who entered the mathematics department in 2013, and to release the further detailed information you've requested would breach the first principle of Schedule 1 of the Data Protection Act.

If you are not satisfied with the University’s response to your request, you may ask the University to review it, but this must be within 40 working days of receiving the response.

Dear Freedom of Information,

Just to clarify, I'm not asking for any names or anything identifying the students. Just student 1, student 2, etc.

Is that still unacceptable?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Brown

Freedom of Information, University of Sussex
