Dear London School of Economics,
I am writing you to ask for the following statistics regarding the UGAA tests for the two latest admission cycles. I assume that these will be the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 admission cycles, but please include the 2014/2015|2015/2016 cycles if the data for the latest admission cycles is not yet available for the response.
I would be grateful to you if you could provide we with the following indicators:
1) The total number of applicants for L101 Economics who have a qualification which is not eligible for admission without UGAA;
2) The total number of offers for L101 given to the applicants who have sit UGAA;
3) Mean, median and lowest UGAA mark of the successful (recieved offers) applicants for L101;
4) Total number of applicants and total number of offer-holders for L101.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.
With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached the information you requested.
Please note: Each applicant that sits the UGAA is considered on his/her merit and in competition with the rest of the cohort. Each application is viewed holistically; as well as the UGAA scores the following items are also taken into consideration - academic achievements and qualifications, the personal statement, the academic reference and additional social and educational contextual data. For more information on exactly what contextual information is used in the admissions decision making process please refer to the Undergraduate Admissions Policy.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or put your appeal in writing to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE within 40 days of receiving the School’s response. 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.
