Dear Colin,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act request.

 

Imperial College’s Department of Civil Engineering does not publish past
papers for the MSc Transport programme because many of the questions are
likely to be reused in the future. The provision of the examination papers
and model solutions would undermine the integrity of the examination and
assessment process by conferring an unfair advantage on individuals who
viewed the papers and model solutions and would disadvantage those who did
not. This would have an adverse effect on the Department’s ability to
fairly assess the academic achievement of students and would likely
prejudice public confidence in the College's assessment processes and the
validity of our degree awards. As the Department would not be able to
reuse the questions on the papers (if they were disclosed) for the reasons
set out above, the disclosure of these papers and model solutions would be
disruptive and necessitate the preparation of entirely new papers.  This
would increase the burden not only on staff within the department, but
also on individuals external to the College who act as external examiners
(who would need to review and approve the new papers). This would be a
disproportionate burden to the College. Consequently, the College
considers the disclosure of the requested information to be exempt under
Section 36 (2) (C) of the Freedom of Information Act, as it would
prejudice the effective conduct of public affairs by undermining the
examinations process. 

 

As Section 36 is a qualified exemption, we have also considered whether
the public interest would favour disclosure in this case, despite the
factors mentioned above. Although the College recognises past papers can
assist students in their learning, and that there is a public interest in
the standards of course testing at the College, it is the College’s view
that, for the reasons outlined above, the public interest in maintaining
the exemption outweighs the public interest in this information.

 

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can
ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing
within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain
dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request you may
then approach the [1]Information Commissioner’s Office. 

 

Yours,

 

Freedom of Information Team
