Dear University of Bristol,

I would like to clarify on my interpretation of the term 'accepted'.

In the context of this request, this should be seen as those sent an offer (conditional and unconditional) by the University of Bristol.

Does this change the results of the request? If so, I would like to request that, under the Freedom of Information Act, the request be processed with my definition of the term 'accepted'. Please see the below for a reference to the original request.

"Under the Freedom of Information Act, I would like to request the following information about undergraduate Computer Science (G400) at University of Bristol.

- Percentage of applicants who were accepted that held an AS-Level in
Further Mathematics; and
- Percentage of applicants who were accepted that held an A-Level in

Dear Mr Patel. 
Applicants are counted as accepted where their application has received an
unconditional offer, which for many applicants follows the meeting of all
conditions associated with a previously conditional offer and where the
applicant has either chosen this as their Firm choice via UCAS or if
applying outside UCAS has given a response we consider equivalent to Firm.
Applicants can be accepted without necessarily going on to register as a
student at the University, as they may withdraw from their place prior to
registration.
Please let us know if you wish to make a further request for information. 
Kind Regards,
