Dear Aston University,

I’d like to inquire about some statistics for this years cycle of application to your BSc and MOptom Optometry courses. Could I please have the following information:

1. The total number of applicants for each of the two courses this year.
2. The number of applicants actually eligible to be considered for the individual courses from those that applied this year.
3. For each course, the amount of applicants that were interviewed.
4. I understand that you score Optometry interviews into 3 bands, thus of those interviewed how many applicants were in each band for both courses.
5. The number of applicants that received an offer for each individual course.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Singh
