Undergraduate law admissions: data on candidates applying with an Access to HE Diploma

Cardiff University Nid oedd gan y wybodaeth y gofynnwyd amdani.

Dear Cardiff University,

I would like to request the following data relating to all law courses (i.e. both the single honours LLB or BA and any joint honours law courses) offered by your university.

I am requesting the data for candidates who received offers for one of the aforementioned law courses in the 2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/2021 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

If the data for 2020/2021 is not available for whatever reason, this is understandable.

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1) The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

2) The average, highest and lowest LNAT scores (where applicable) of the offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

3) The average, highest, and lowest number of GCSEs of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Singh
