Dear Mr Singh

 

Thank you for your request for information from Durham University.
Colleagues have provided the information below/attached in response to
your questions.

 

Could you please provide the following information for the BA Economics
(L100) course over the past 5 years:

 

1) Number of applications from students with Advanced Placement (AP)
qualifications

 

2) Number of offers made to students with Advanced Placement (AP)
qualifications

 

3) Number of applications from students with International Baccalaureate
(IB) qualifications

 

4) Number of offers made to students with International Baccalaureate (IB)
qualifications

 

5) Number of applications and number of offers by nationality

 

6) Number of applications and number of offers by domicile (not
nationality)

 

Please refer to the attached document in response to your questions,
noting:

 

·        we have used the HESA rounding methodology. Rounding is applied
after calculations, which is why some numbers do not appear to add to the
total (e.g. a set of 0s can add to 5). We have also included the
percentage of applicants receiving an offer (for questions 5 and 6, just
for the total of the five years) as this gives some additional information
that would otherwise be obscured by the rounding.

 

·        we have defined 'students with' AP or IB to include those who
apply with predicted results as well as completed qualifications. We have
included everyone with at least one AB or IB qualification – please note
that these applicants may also be taking additional qualifications, and
they might be made an offer that also includes other conditions.

 

If you are dissatisfied with the University’s response to your freedom of
information request, you can ask us to internally review our handling of
your request, including the application of any exemptions applied.  To do
this, please email [1][Durham University request email] or write to:

Please state the grounds on which you wish the decision to be reviewed and
enclose any other information that may be useful in considering the matter
further.  We aim to inform you of our decision within 20 working days from
the date your request for internal review is received.

 

If you are not satisfied with the results of the internal review you may
apply to the Information Commissioner's Office for an independent review.
