Dear William Banner

 

Colleagues have asked me to get in touch with you to request clarification
in relation to your request below. 

 

We would not respond to your questions relating to 2019/20 admissions as
the cycle is still ongoing.  If you would like to request this data you
would need to re-submit your request after 20th October for this
information.

 

Further information is available from the FAQ specifically about Economics
applications
[1]https://studyatdurham.microsoftcrmportal...
. As mentioned in this FAQ, the number of places available this year has
decreased, so the success rate and qualifications for applicants last year
will not give a good indication of circumstances this year.

 

With the above in mind we would be grateful if you could confirm if you
would like us to go ahead with your request for the 2018/19 information
that you requested.

 

Your request will be placed on hold until we receive the requested
clarification from you.  If however we do not receive clarification within
30 days of this email we will consider the request closed.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear ACCESS I.,

Thank you very much for telling me when I can ask for the 2019/20 data. I understand that the data will be very different for 2018/19 but I would greatly appreciate it if you could still provide the 2018/19 data.

Thank you again,

Yours sincerely,

William Banner
