Degree Classifications

Chelsea Cole made this Freedom of Information request to University of Bristol

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, University of Bristol should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear University of Bristol,

1) Please could you supply the statistics (grand total and percentage) of students in LL.B. achieving different classifications (1st, 2:1, 2:2, etc.) for the previous 6 academics years, until 2016-2017.

2) If possible, I would like to know the percentage of
international students achieving that classification as well.

This is an example of a similar request made to the university: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/d...

3) In terms of admissions, what is the target student intake for Home/EU students?
4) What is the target intake for international students?

Yours faithfully,

Chelsea Cole

your request under the Freedom of Information Act within 20 working days.

Information Commissioner’s Office to explain the situation.

 

We may need to ask you certain questions to clarify your request to ensure
we fully understand what information is being requested. If so, the 20
working day deadline will be calculated once we have received such
clarification.

We refer to your Freedom of Information request received on 8th October

the situation.

 

Please confirm you still require the information requested and we will
endeavour to deal with your request as soon as possible. If you do still
require the information, please let us know within the next five working
days.  If we have not heard from you during that time, we will assume that

Kind regards
