The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Edinburgh,

I am writing to you regarding your BVM&S Veterinary Science (D100) course.
Could you please provide myself with an Excel spreadsheet with the following data/information from the last 2 admission cycles:
1) A Level grades (predicted)
2) A Level grades (achieved)
3) Whether an offer was made

Also, what was the lowest GCSE grade combination for those given an offer and how many contextual offers were made?

Yours faithfully,

J Singh
