1. For each applicant, can I know their A-Level predicted grades.
2. For each applicant, can I know their GCSE grades, and whether there were any extenuating circumstances involved.
3. For each applicant, could I know, where relevant, whether they were successful in getting an interview and how this was graded.
4. For each applicant, if their personal statement was given a score or grade, could I know the corresponding score.
5. For each applicant, can I know whether they were successful in receiving an offer.
6. For each applicant, please could I know which type of school they attended (independent, maintained, grammar, academy or boarding)
7. For each applicant, could I please know whether they were home or international.
8. For each applicant, whether they were on a gap year or taking a deferred place.
