Dear Sam Carlson

 

Colleagues have asked me to get in touch with you to request clarification
in relation to your request below.  Specifically, they would be grateful
if you could clarify the following:-

 

When you ask for details of  "each accepted applicant" do you mean offer
holders, accepted at confirmation (following receipt of A Level results)
or enrolled?

 

Pleas also be aware that to preserve anonymity we will not be able to
provide the individual results for each applicant, instead a summary
grouped by A Level grades e.g. 100 achieved A*AA, 200 achieved AAA etc.
would be provided.

 

Your request will be placed on hold until we receive the requested
clarification from you.  If however we do not receive clarification within
30 days of this email we will consider the request closed.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Durham University,

By "each accepted applicant", I do in fact mean enrolled applicants. (Those who are now currently at Durham University or used to study at Durham University).

And a summary grouped by A'Level grades will be more than enough.

Thank you for your prompt response and I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Sam Carlson

your questions.

 

I am requesting information about the following courses:

-       Mathematics BSc (G100)

 

For each course, could you please provide the A Level grades of each

You clarified your request as follows:-

By "each accepted applicant", I do in fact mean enrolled applicants.
(Those who are now currently at Durham University or used to study at
Durham University).

And a summary grouped by A Level grades will be more than enough.

 

Please see the information attached which is provided on the following
basis:

·         Entrants for the 2019/20 academic year as at our census
population (1^st December)

·         Natural Science data shows all entrant to the degree not just
those who are on the define route of “Computer Science and Mathematics” as
the numbers on the route would be too small to provide detailed data

of entrants into three categories (A-Level, Other and Ovs)

·         For those with A-Level as their main entry qualifications,
provided the breakdown of numbers in the grade groups
