Dear John Dimitroulopoulos,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act request of 18 January 2020.
I have reproduced your questions below together with SOAS’s response.

 

I would like to request the following information about your single
honours law course (please exclude any data on joint honours law courses
from your reply).

1. The number of students who enrolled in 2019.
2. A complete, anonymised list of the A-level results achieved by each of
the students who enrolled in 2019. Please break this down by student (e.g.
Candidate 1 got A*AA, Candidate 2 got AAA, etc.)
3. A complete, anonymised list of the IB total points achieved by each of
the students who enrolled in 2019. Please break this down by student (e.g.
Candidate 1 got 35 points out of 45, Candidate 2 got 38 points out of 45,
etc.)

 

 

Our response

The information has been withheld under section 22 of the FoIA, which
relates to information intended to be published. The information on the
number of students enrolled will be published by HESA here:
[1]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/data-and-analysis..., and the information
relating to results will be available as a bespoke dataset through JISC’s
tailored datasets: [2]https://www.jisc.ac.uk/tailored-datasets

 

The public interest in disclosing this information early (greater and more
immediate transparency) is outweighed by the public interest in
maintaining the exemption (not undermining the statutory and uniform
collection of data from Higher Education Institutions in accordance with
standard procedures and timescales).

 

Your right to appeal
I hope that you are satisfied with this response, but if you are not you
can ask me for an informal review within 40 working days of receipt of
this response:

If it does not prove possible to resolve your complaint informally, I will
arrange for a formal review of the handling of your request according to
the School's procedures. These can be found on SOAS's website at
[4]http://www.soas.ac.uk/infocomp/foi/appea....

 

If you are dissatisfied with SOAS's response following this internal
review, you can apply to the Information Commissioner for a decision on
whether your request has been dealt with in accordance with the
requirements of the Freedom of Information Act or the Environmental
Information Regulations. The Commissioner will normally require you to
have gone through our internal review process first before they consider
your appeal. If the Commissioner finds in your favour, the Commissioner
can require SOAS to release the information to you. The Commissioner can
be contacted at the following address:
