Dear [email address],

Thank you for your communication dated 21 September.

There are currently two live FOI requests.

The first titled Past Exam Papers, and a second titled Past Exam Papers - Verbs.

The clarification request in your communication dated 21 September relates to the latter, however it has been asked in connection to the former - at least that is how it has appeared on whatdotheyknow.

In connection to the latter and the clarification request, I replied to the university on 23 September. I received an acknowledgment on 24 September informing me of receipt of my request of an internal review.

With regards to the former request, on the 2 September I did ask "can you confirm that the university is unable to release the exam paper from the 2020/21 exam diet?".

Yours sincerely,

Adam Finkel-Gates
