Dear James,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information relating to Kingston

Dear Mr Carter,

 

Further to my recent email, I am writing to ask you to clarify some
aspects of your request to ensure that the University has understood your
request correctly and to help us to locate the information you require.

 

Therefore I would be grateful if you would clarify your request by
answering the following questions:

 

1.    Does your request relate to all applications received by the
university or to full-time undergraduate applications only?

2.    Your final paragraph states that you would like data for “each year
in turn being divided up unto the individual courses (which must have
their course code next to them)”. Will UCAS course codes suffice for
course? Please note our eventual response may include non UCAS course
applications for which we will have to include a non UCAS course code
depending on your response to question one.

3.    Several of your paragraphs, e.g. 1c, refer to “the total number of
applications”. Does this total refer to the total of points 1a + 1b, i.e.
just UCAS and direct entrants, or including all other applications not
specified?

4.    The University’s student record system was implemented in 2000-2001
and was not used as the sole admissions system until the 2003-2004
admissions cycle. If we are only able to provide data from 2003-2004 would
this still be of use to you?

 

Please note that your request for information will not be progressed
further until I have received clarification from you. In the event that I
do not receive appropriate clarification within three months from the date
of this email, I will consider your request to be closed.

 

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

 

Kind regards

 

Gail Laughlan
