FOI/2019/296

27^th August 2019

 

Name:  Mr Forgan

By email to: [FOI #593119 email]

 

Dear Mr Forgan,

 

Thank you for your email of 29^th July requesting information concerning
A100 admission statistics.  Colleagues have provided the information you
requested below.

 

My request is regarding statistics for the A100 medicine course. All
requests are for the 2018/2019 cycle. If data for the 2018/2019 cycle is
not possible, I would like it for the 2017/2018 cycle.  Please can I have
the following anonymised data about the candidates who applied?

 

Q1. For each applicant, can I know their A-level predicted grades, GCSE
grades, UKCAT score, BMAT score, whether they were successful in getting
an interview and whether they were successful in getting a place?

Q2. For each applicant, can I also know whether they were home or
international (if so whether they were an EU citizen)

Q3. Please can I know what type of school the applicant went to
(independent, maintained, grammar, academy or boarding)?

Q6. Whether they were on a gap year or taking a deferred place

 

Although the University does hold the information requested for Q1, Q2, Q3
and Q6, it will not supply it to you because this information is exempt
under Section 40 (Personal Information) of the Freedom of Information Act
and is therefore being withheld.  We are unable to provide the data
requested "for each applicant" as this would relate to an individual (even
if anonymised). We believe this information is exempt, as disclosure would
not comply with the principles set out in the Data Protection Act 2018. 
Providing it could enable the individuals involved to be identified,
either now or in the future, and these individuals would have a reasonable
expectation that their information will not be disclosed.

 

We can advise that this data should be available for all UK institutions
via UCAS. Their EXACT service could provide anonymised figures and should
be publicly available in an anonymised form.  Details can be accessed via
their publication scheme via
https://www.ucas.com/about-us/policies/f....

 

Q4. Please could I have a breakdown of their UKCAT and BMAT scores by
section?

The University does not hold data which would allow us to answer this
question.

 

Q5. How their PS and interview performance was graded or scored

For 2020 entry, please see our Departmental Supplement on our website at

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request for
information, you have a right under Section 50 of the Freedom of
Information Act to ask the University to review it; however, you must do
so within 40 working days of the date of this response. Your request
should include our reference number and explain the reason for requesting
a review. Email [University of Liverpool request email] or write to the Freedom of Information
Reviewer, Legal & Compliance, University of Liverpool, Foundation
Building, 765 Brownlow Hill, Liverpool L69 7ZX.  We will respond to your
request for an internal review within 20 working days of receipt.

 

Following an internal review, if you remain dissatisfied with the handling
of your request, you have a right to appeal to the Information
Commissioner at The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF. Telephone:  0303 123 1113

There is no charge for making an appeal.

 

Yours sincerely,
