Dear University of Dundee,

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 in advance.

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

Dear Mr Normand,
Thank you for your request for information from the University of Dundee.
While the University may hold some of this information, it is not able to
release it to you as you have requested the data for 'each applicant'.
Releasing such detailed information for each applicant could enable the
individuals in question to be identified and lead to the inappropriate
release of personal data. Disclosure of third party personal data would
breach the data protection principles of the Data Protection Act 2018. As
such, please treat this email as notice per S.16 and S.38 of FoI(S)A that
we are unable to disclose the information you have requested because to do
so could lead to the inadvertent identification of individuals and the
inappropriate release of personal data.
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of further assistance.

 

Kind regards,

 

Alan
