Dear Adam

 

Apologies for the delay in responding to your request for information.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request.

 

We can confirm that we do hold some of the information of the description
specified in your request and this information is provided in the document
attached.

 

As you will see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
students is 5 or fewer (indicated by the symbol ≤5), and mean and
percentiles equate to a data set of 7 or fewer (indicated by the symbol
≤7) or 22 or fewer total students (indicated by the symbol ≤22), the
information has been withheld because, with such low numbers even
providing this information without names, it may be possible to identify
the individuals, which would make this personal data of third parties or,
if linked with other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be
likely to become personal data. This information has been withheld under
Section 40(2) of the FOIA by virtue of Section 40(3A)(a).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles. In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data. The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

Please note, UCL does not hold the data for the distribution of numerical
grades of students finishing year 1, 2 and 3 of the BSc Management Science
programme, for the last 3 available years (i.e. 2022, 2021, 2020) because
no numerical grades of students finishing year 1, 2 and 3 of the programme
exists.

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

 

If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:

 

Vice-President (Operations)

Please note, complaints and requests for internal review received more
than two months after the initial decision will not be handled.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner by using the following web
address: [2]www.ico.org.uk/foicomplaints. You should do this within two
months of our final decision.

provided in this letter and including the request reference number.
