Dear Rajeev,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached the information you requested.

Points 1-4 for both programmes are covered in the sheet titled "AP and IB Applications_Offers"
Point 5 for both programmes is covered in the sheet titled "Applications_Offers Nationality"
Point 6 for both programmes is covered in the sheet titled "Applications_Offers Domicile"

Please note that numbers for points 5 and 6 that were less than 5 have been changed to <5 in order to protect the identities of those applicants/offer holders.

Please note also that each applicant to LSE is considered on his/her merit and in competition with the rest of the applicant cohort in a given admissions cycle. Each application is viewed holistically; assessing the merit, potential, motivation, skills and qualities of applicants by considering all the information presented on the application form. This includes, but is not limited to, academic achievements and qualifications. The personal statement, academic reference and additional social and educational contextual data also form an important part of the selection process. Ethnicity data is not available at the point of selection and therefore is not used in the decision making process. For more information on exactly what contextual information is used in the admissions decision making process please refer to the Undergraduate Admissions Policy.

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise use such information.

Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging to the LSE or a third party.

Yours sincerely,
Rachael Maguire
Records Manager
