Dear University of Central Lancashire,

My request is regarding regarding statistics for the BSc Physics, BSc Chemistry and BSc Biology courses or nearest equivalent where the precise course doesn't exist. All requests are for the 2017/2018 cycle. Many thanks.

Please can I have the following anonymised data about candidates who applied for each course. Please could you provide the data separately for each course.
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.

Please could I have all this data in an excel document or at least a machine readable format.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Normand

Thank you for your request for information below which has been given reference FOI 2089. Please quote this on any correspondence regarding your request.

In order to process your request, we require further clarification as follows:

1. You requested a range of information relating to applicants to BSc Physics, Chemistry and Biology courses. Please could you confirm if you require the information in response to each of your questions to be linked, or if separate lists of A-level grades, GCSE grades, etc, would be sufficient.

Once you have provided the above clarification, the University of Central Lancashire will respond to your request within 20 working days. If there will be a charge for disbursements e.g. photocopying in order to provide the information, we will inform you as soon as possible to see if you wish to proceed.

Dear DP FOIA,

Thank you for your email.

In response to your points of clarification.
1. Separate lists for each subject would be sufficient.
2. Extenuating circumstances in this context means: exceptional, short-term events outside of a students control and had a negative effect on their ability to sit an exam.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Normand

Dear Mr Normand,

Thank you for your email. However, this unfortunately does not clarify point 1 of my previous email.

You have requested:
1. For each applicant, predicted A-level grades,
2. For each applicant, GCSE grades,
3. For each applicant, whether they were successful in getting an interview,
Etc.

Please can you clarify whether this means you want:
a) A list of all applicants to the relevant courses, including all of the information included in your request for each applicant (so that you can cross reference, for example, one applicant's A-level grade with GCSE grades), or,
b) Separate lists of: all applicants' A-level grades, all applicants' GCSE grades, all applicants' success at getting an interview, etc.

Kind regards
