demand on a public authority’s resources in terms of costs and staff time

usual approach to information compliance work, in order to meet the
unprecedented challenges we are all facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic.

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 statistics that relate to people, to
prevent unauthorised disclosure of information that relates to

•                     Numbers of individuals are rounded to the nearest
multiple of 5 - so if the figure is 102 individuals, this is rounded to
100.  Any number lower that 2.5 is rounded to 0.

•                     Percentages that are based on a group of 22
individuals or less are not provided, and this includes requests for
percentile information about marks.

•                     Averages based on 7 or fewer individuals are not


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 the approach to numbers to your request.  The
information withheld is the 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.


If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[2][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:

Please note, complaints and requests for internal review received more
