Tracey Crombie,

Dear Morayo

 

Further to your FOI request, the School of Medicine is extremely concerned
about the need to protect the integrity of the admissions system. This
could be compromised if information were placed in the public domain,
through release under the FoI Act, that enabled candidates to be ‘taught
to the test’ by giving them insight into the details of how the MMI
process is designed and assessed. This would confer an unfair advantage on
those who saw the information, of course, and could very well result in
somebody gaining a place at the expense of another candidate who had
‘played by the rules’ and entered the MMI exercise without that insider
knowledge. It could also result in candidates being coached so that they
were able to gain a place for which they were not really suitable. This
would be to their detriment, to the detriment of the School and
University, to the detriment of another candidate who would unfairly miss
out on a place, and, potentially, to the detriment of the public health
system if the admissions process were no longer fit for purpose, that is,
were no longer enabling the selection and recruitment of the very best
possible candidates to become public health practitioners. This
information is therefore withheld under the scope of the exemption set out
in Section 36 of the FoI Act.

 

I am sorry we have been unable to assist you on this occasion. If you have
any questions about this email, however, please don't hesitate to contact
me.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request a review of our decision,
you should write to or email directly Mr D Wardle, Deputy Secretary, The
University of Leeds, Leeds, LS2 9JT ([email address]). You should
do so within 40 working days of receiving the University’s response to
your request. Further information about how the University manages Freedom
of Information requests and about our complaints procedure is also
available on our website (www.leeds.ac.uk).

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision.  Generally, the ICO cannot make a decision unless you have
exhausted the review/complaints procedure provided by the University.  The
Information Commissioner can be contacted at:  Information Commissioner’s
Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Best wishes,
