Could I please request the following information be released. The
percentage of successful (successful being received an offer) applicants
for your A100 Medicine course. That achieved the following GCSE results:

All 9s

Mostly 9s with the odd 8

Mostly 8s with a few 9s

This element of the request was clarified as

Odd, few and mostly are just put there to help pull an average! I don't
need 'specifics'  more the success percentage of students that has those
as GCSE's.

 

If you would like to break It into specifics:

 

All 9's

9s 1x 8

8s 3x 9s

8s 3x 9s and 7s

7s with a 3x 8/9s

7s with a 3x 8s and 6s

7s with a 3x 5/6s

6s

 

The information you have requested is not routinely collated. It would
take considerably more than 18 hours to collate the information you
require as each record would need to be examined in order to place them
into categories before calculating percentages. The University is not
obliged to spend more than 18 hours (as set by the Freedom of Information
and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees) Regulations 2004)
collating such information and accordingly the exemption provided by
section 12(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 will apply.

 

 

I trust this information satisfies your enquiry. Should you feel
dissatisfied with this response or the way in which your request was
handled you can request an Internal Review. This should be made in writing
