This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

We're waiting for Amelia James-Hart to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear London School of Economics,

I would like to request the following data regarding the 2017 cycle for the applicants to the BSc Economics programme.

1) The number of people predicted (including already achieved) 4A* or more, 4A*, 3A*1A, 3A*, 2A*2A, 2A*A, A*3A, A*2A each and the number of offers for each category of predicted grades.

2) The number of people that only had one module of Maths/FM less than an A (as stated on the UCAS form), and the number of those who went on to get an offer.

3) The number of applicants with an A* prediction in A2 Further Maths and the number of those who also then got an offer.

As I have not requested anything regarding UMS, I am expecting a comprehensive reply. I would appreciate if you could format the data into an Excel file.

Yours faithfully,

Amelia James-Hart

Dear Amelia,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find below the School's response.

1) The number of people predicted (including already achieved) 4A* or more, 4A*, 3A*1A, 3A*, 2A*2A, 2A*A, A*3A, A*2A each and the number of offers for each category of predicted grades.

Please see the attached.

The colleague who provided the information also made the following comments: "For this one I've attached a list of all applicants for BSc Economics in the 2017 UCAS cycle who applied on the basis of 3 or more A levels (both Home and Overseas). Each line represents an applicant and has a comma separated list of their grades alongside whether they were made an offer or not. I included all applicants in a list rather than breaking down the numbers as while the requester has given a list of categories, there are a large number of applicants who apply with more than 4 A levels (up to 8) and as such don't entirely fit the categories. I thought it made more sense to provide all the data and let the requester divide them up as they wanted

As you can probably see from the list, the standard caveat applies to UCAS form data; the predicted grade and results data we receive doesn't have any validation against it. Sometimes grades are represented numerically (e.g. 168/200) rather than as a letter grade, and in some cases the grade is just listed as 'Incomplete' without a predicted grade against it at all.

The final thing to point out is that the list does not factor in whether the A level is in a preferred or non-preferred subject as per UG Admissions policy. It is purely a ranked list of grades from each distinct subject".

2) The number of people that only had one module of Maths/FM less than an A (as stated on the UCAS form), and the number of those who went on to get an offer.

We are not able to provide this information within the cost limit set in Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.

3) The number of applicants with an A* prediction in A2 Further Maths and the number of those who also then got an offer.

352 applicants applied with a predicted grade of A* for A2 Further Maths, 196 of them received an offer.

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise use such information.

Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging to the LSE or a third party.

Yours sincerely,
