Dear University of Edinburgh,

I wondered if it would be possible to request the following data, in spreadsheet format, for the years 2017, 2018 and 2019. If this is not possible due to cost or any other factor I would appreciate the data for only the year 2019.

A) Number of English applicants to Biomedical Science BSc
B) Number of applicants who received offers
C) The number of candidates who enrolled
D) The A Level grades achieved by each candidate who sucesfully enrolled
F) Was the course in clearing (Yes, No or N/A)

And if the data is available:
G) How many students were accepted via clearing, and what were their achieved grades.
Many thanks in advance.

Yours faithfully,

Georgia Allen

Records Management, University of Edinburgh
