Good morning

In respect of your FOI request below, I have been asked to come back to you for further clarification.

In terms of Points 3, 5 and 6 below, what does 'grade profile' mean in this instance please? Are you referring to predicted grade equivalences of applicants and offer holders and achieved grade equivalencies of enrolled students for example or actual achieved grade equivalencies for all? Please also note that we will necessarily hold all of this information any longer.

In addition, for the fourth point below, how many countries should be listed in the response.

I have placed your request on hold pending further details from yourself.

Best wishes

Good morning

In respect of your clarification below, I note that you have provided clarification n respect of Points 2 and 4.

However, in relation to the other issues raised, I am afraid the University of Bath Security Policy advises against clicking on unsolicited links provided externally and as such, I would ask that you provide a response to the questions posed without the requirement to access a link.

Once I have received an email to this effect, I will re-open your request immediately.

Best wishes

Dear Rebecca,

Here is the clarification you requested.

For questions 3,5 and 6,

I would like a count of the grades of students who applied to Bath (e.g How many students applied with A*A*A*) in a tabulated format.

Table:
Columns:
1 - Students with A*A*A*
2 - Students with A*A*A
3 - Students with A*AA
4 - Students with AAA
5 - Students with AAB and other grade profiles

Rows:
a - Number of students who applied to Bath University
b - Number of students who recieved offers to Bath University
c - Number of students who recieved unconditional offers to Bath University
d - Number of students who have been admitted to Bath University.

(e.g. if 100 AAA students recieved offers to Bath University, the number "100" would be entered in Row B Column 4)

Yours sincerely,

Joseph Lewis
