Distinction and Merit Rate (and Number) for Taught MSc degrees in Social Science department

The request was successful.

Dear University of Edinburgh,

I would like to request the statistics concerning all the degree outcomes for 18/19 and 19/20 academic years for Taught MSc Degrees across the department of social and political sciences. Specifically, I was hoping to learn about both the proportion and the actual number of how many students are awarded distinction and merit.

Yours faithfully,

A

If you are unhappy with the way the University has handled your request,
you do have the right to ask the University to conduct an internal review
of the reasons for the delay. The [3]Scottish Information Commissioner’s

website. If you wish to submit a review request you should write to the
Records Management Section (using this email address), describing the
original request, explaining your grounds for dissatisfaction, and
