Dear James,

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 9^th November 2021. 

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request regarding the number of applicants and offer for the BSc
Management science course, and the average number of A*s at GCSE.

 

We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and this information is provided below.

 

OUR RESPONSE

 

Please may I request the number of applicants and the number of offers for
the BSc Management science course for the 2019, 2020 and 2021 entry
admission cycles.

 

Session Course code Course Title Applicants Offers
2019 UBSMANSING18 BSc Management Science 1300 285
2020 UBSMANSING18 BSc Management Science 1480 655
2021 UBSMANSING18 BSc Management Science 1740 185

 

In each of these years what was the Average number of A* at GCSE for offer
holders. 

 

Session Average A*
2019 0.42
2020 0.33
2021 0.21

 

Note: Since 2017 GCSE is graded differently using numbers and a lot of A*
grades are replaced by number 9, the equivalent. So, from 2020 the Average
A* is not comparable with the previous year, it will be lower as I
observed an increased 9 replacing A*.

 

Whilst UCL is committed to openness and transparency, we are also mindful
of our obligations under the Data Protection regime, and therefore take
steps to anonymise data before it is released. We therefore adopt the
following approach when releasing statistic that relate to people, to
prevent unauthorised disclosure of information that relates to
individuals:

 

•               Numbers of individuals are rounded to the nearest multiple
of five – so if the figure is 102 individuals, this is rounded to 100. Any
number lower than 2.5 is rounded to zero.

 

We have identified that there is a risk of the identification of
underlying individuals in the information that you have requested. We have
therefore applied rounding to the number of individuals to the nearest
multiple of five. The information withheld is personal information of
third parties, or, if linked with other personal identifiers in the public
domain, would be likely to become personal data. This information has been
withheld under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA)
by virtue of Section 40(3A)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles. In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data. The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.
