Dear London School of Economics,
For Financial Mathematics and Statistics 2017 entry (and 2016 if on record), how many applications were made, how many offers were given, and how many people ended up on the course?
And of the students who ended up on the course, how many were international and what proportion were male/female?
This is the second time you have made this request, though you have added 2016 to this one. Repeat requests can be refused under Section 14. Can you please confirm which of your request you want the School to process and withdraw the other.
