Dear Sam

 

I am writing in response to your request under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 whereby you requested –

 

‘I kindly request the pass rate (in the form of total students, total

students who have passed and total students to have dropped out/changed

courses or failed for the school of medicine  (course of A106 Medicine).

The statistics provided should be for the cohort to have finished in 2017

(thereby started in 2012) , up until the cohort of 2015 (thereby started

in 2010). For clarification, 3 sets of data should be provided for the 3

separate cohorts’

 

Refusal Notice

 

This Refusal Notice has been issued under Section 17 of the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) in respect of your request for information under
Section 1 (1) of the FOIA.  The University of Manchester confirms that the
information requested may be held but we are refusing to provide it in
response to your request for the reasons set out below. 

 

Reason for our refusal

 

The information requested may be held but it is estimated that for staff
to look into providing this data would exceed 18 hours of work. Under
Section 12 of the FOIA we are not obliged to comply with the request if
the cost of compliance exceeds the appropriate limit, i.e., £450 or 18
hours labour at £25 per hour.  We have estimated that complying with your
request would exceed the appropriate limit. 

 

As you are asking for the information on 3 separate cohorts to be tracked
through from start to finish, we would be unable to provide this due to
the various and circuitous routes through the programme and would it would
take longer than the 18 hours to gather.  Essentially it would involve
going through the individual records of each student to ascertain the data
that you require in order to respond to the request.

 

We are able to provide the progression data for each year of the programme
for the past three academic years,.  This is essentially the same as
‘pass-rate’ – I have attached this for you.

 

The University of Manchester Freedom of Information Act appeals procedure 

 

If you feel that The University of Manchester has refused access to
information to which you are entitled, or has not dealt with your request
appropriately under the FOIA, you have a right of appeal.
