Freedom of Information requests, University of Huddersfield

Dear Dominic,

Our response to your request for information dated 9 August 2019 is provided below, in accordance with the original numbering of your request.

1. The University does not hold a complete dataset of GCSE results for the relevant students. This is because where minimum entry requirements are specified (e.g. 3 GCSEs) the applicant may only provide the information which satisfies the minimum requirement, whilst others may provide a full set of grades at GCSE level.
2. The information requested on A-level grades is exempt under section 43(2) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and is therefore being withheld. The information is commercially sensitive and the commercial interests of the University would be prejudiced by its disclosure given the increasingly competitive nature of the HE sector. Having considered the public interest, the University's decision is to withhold the information.
3. The University does not hold information on IB grades.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your requests, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted within 40 working days from the date of our response to your original request and should be addressed to the University Secretary, University of Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield HD1 3DH or by email to [University of Huddersfield request email].

Please note that all copyright in this response belongs to the University of Huddersfield; you are not permitted to publish, reproduce, copy or otherwise use this response, except as permitted by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

Further information about the Freedom of Information Act can be obtained from the Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF, http://www.ico.org.uk/.

Yours sincerely

Esha Goswami
Information Governance Officer
