Undergraduate law admissions: data on candidates applying through non-traditional routes

Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Queen Mary University of London.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

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 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

If the data for 2018/2019 is not available for whatever reason, please provide it for 2016/2017 (I am looking for at least two admission cycles’ worth of data, in order to ensure that it is reliable).

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1. The total number of offerholders for the aforementioned law courses.

2. The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed BTECs as their most recent qualification.

3. The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed a Higher National Diploma (‘HND’) or Higher National Certificate (‘HNC’) as their most recent qualification.

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

5. The number of offerholders who received offers while planning to resit their A-levels. (These individuals will show up on your system as having completed one set of A-levels already, with predictions for at least one other A-level).

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

Yours faithfully,

Samira El Amein

Hello,

What exactly do you mean when you say that the information is 'not held'? Every other university that I have sent a similar request to had at least some of the data for Questions 2-5.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Samira El Amein,

I am afraid that we cannot ascertain the most recent qualification of applicants which underpins your request because in our Student Records system we overwrite records.

That is the reason that the information is not held.

Yours sincerely

Queen Mary University of London
