Please note that any blanks in the above table means that there were no
applicants for those programmes in those academic years.

 

As you can see, exact counts of four or less have been withheld because
these are 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 s40 (3)(a)(i). 

 

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.

 

Q2) Could I have a breakdown of their achieved grades. 

 

A2) Intake criteria is AAA for students. Therefore those that did not meet
that criteria dropped one grade, which means they achieved AAB.
