Dear Imperial College London,

I would like to request the following information regarding the Biotechnology course for UK students sitting A levels:
1) The number of applicants along with the number of offers made
2) For all applicants, their GCSE results profile, with those who had offers made highlighted
3) For students who have already sat their exams , their A level results profile, with those who had offers made highlighted
4) For students who applied in year 13, their predicted grades profile, with those who had offers made highlighted

I would like the information for 2,3, and 4 represented in a table and the admissions information for the past three years, so that would be a table for each years worth of admissions statistics. Further to this I would like the statistics for those who had offers made having their GCSE/ A level profiles shown together, with the same applying for those who were unsuccessful, for example:
Applicants X: GCSE profile + A level exam results/ predicted grades profile offer made
Applicants Y: GCSE profile + A level exam results/ predicted grades profile offer not made
Along with this I would also like to request all of the exam papers for year 1 of this course for the years applicable.

Thank you in advance for your help
Yours faithfully,

David Batelli

Dear Mr Batelli,

 

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request. Please find
below the College's response to your questions.

 

I would like to request the following information regarding the
Biotechnology course for UK students sitting A levels:
1) The number of applicants along with the number of offers made

 

UK students has been taken to mean those who were assessed as being Home
for Fee Status purposes (in accordance with UKCISA and Imperial College
London policies on fee assessment).

 

There were 26 applicants in total to J700 BSc Biotechnology in the 2018
UCAS Cycle who were assessed as Home fee status. Of these 26 candidates, 9
were made an offer.

2) For all applicants, their GCSE results profile, with those who had
offers made highlighted
3) For students who have already sat their exams , their A level results
profile, with those who had offers made highlighted
4) For students who applied in year 13, their predicted grades profile,
with those who had offers made highlighted

I would like the information for 2,3, and 4 represented in a table and the
admissions information for the past three years, so that would be a table
for each years worth of admissions statistics. Further to this I would
like the statistics for those who had offers made having their GCSE/ A
level profiles shown together, with the same applying for those who were
unsuccessful, for example:
Applicants X: GCSE profile + A level exam results/ predicted grades
profile offer made
Applicants Y: GCSE profile + A level exam results/ predicted grades 
profile offer not made

this is personal data. This information is exempt from disclosure under

Along with this I would also like to request all of the exam papers for
year 1 of this course for the years applicable.

 

Please find attached. Four exams are taken in the first year of study:

- Biological Chemistry

- Cell Biology

- Molecular Biology

- Proteins and Enzymes
