Please Note: Qualification information is self-reported and therefore may
be subject to error. The request for the final honours classification is
fairly meaningless, as not all offer holders report their final grades and
not all of them are marked in an honours classification, so the numbers
are not complete and based only on those where we have recorded a final
mark in that format.

 

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact Rachael Maguire on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School

Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request
and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the
Information Commissioner's Office [1]http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they
expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint
directly.
