Dear London School of Economics,
Can I please have the number of offers and rejections from 2012 admission cycle onwards against their prediction grades.
Can you confirm if you are looking for undergraduate or postgraduate admissions information?
Once we have your response, we can start processing your request.

My colleagues have had a further look at your request and have made the following comments:
'They've asked for the number of offers and rejections against predicted grades so would that mean the numbers broken down by predicted grades e.g. A*A*A* - 14 offers, 9 rejected? Is it for all qualifications, or just A levels, or some selection of qualifications? If it's all qualifications it would definitely exceed the time-limit. There are 300000 records with predicted grades over that period. Even if it's just A levels it's a massive data set due to the time period and the inconsistency of the qualification data. Finally are they looking for it to be broken down by cycle alone, or also by programme?'
Our main issue with qualifications data is that we are sent the data from UCAS and this is entered by applicants and not always in a standard way. Obviously there is an issue with whether the cost limit set in Section 12 of the FoI Act could be breached. If you can let me know which qualifications data you are looking for, and if you are happy for this to be broken down by cycle, I can check with my colleague if this fits within the cost limit.
It will only for a levels in terms of the qualifications I am looking for.
Number of offers and rejections against predictions would be like as you have stated: ***- 14 offers , 9rejected etc.
Finally I would be looking for it to be broken down by both Cycle and programme.
