Dear Anna Hardy,

 

Thank you for your request of 22^nd January.

 

I am pleased to provide the following responses. Please note that we have
renumbered some of your questions as yours did not make sense.

 

1. 2016/17 = 142, 2017/18 = 109, 2018/19 = 129

 

2.

a) How the Academic Points for scoring graduates formed?

Points are awarded to applicants based on the degree(s) held and the class
of these.

b) How many academic points are allocated for 1st, 2.1, Masters, PhD?

6 – 1^st, 4 – 2:1, 1 – Masters & PhD.

c) How many academic points are given for UK, EU, Non-EU degrees? 

The same system is used, but for non-UK degrees it will depend on the
NARIC equivalent. Most of these are converted as 2:1 and are awarded 4
points.

 

3.

The number of graduate applicants to A100 with non-U.K./EU degrees who
applied as a Home student is small in each year. As such, we are unable to
provide some of this information as we believe is it exempt under s.40(2)
or s.40(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The small numbers could
mean that you, or someone else, could be able to identify individuals. We
do not have the consent of the individuals concerned to disclose this
information to the world at large. Therefore, it would not be fair and
would breach the first data protection principle. The Information
Commissioner states, “If the disclosure would not be fair, the information
must not be disclosed”(1). This is an absolute exemption.

a) How many graduate applicants with Non-UK/EU degrees applied for A100
for  2016, 2017, 2018 entry?

2016/17 = 3 or fewer, 2017/18 = 0, 2018/19 = 3 or fewer

b) How many graduate applicants with Non-UK/EU degrees were shortlisted
for A100 interview for 2016, 2017 and 2018 entry?

2016/17 = 3 or fewer, 2017/18 = 0, 2018/19 = 0

c) What were the Academic Score and UKCAT for applicants with Non-UK/EU
degrees shortlisted for A100 interview for 2018 entry?

We are unable to provide this information because there are too few
applicants who meet this criteria. These figures are the personal data of
the applicants in question.

d) How many graduate applicants with Non-UK/EU degrees received an offer
for A100 in 2015, 2016 and 2017?

2015/16 = 3 or fewer, 2016/17 = 3 or fewer, 2017/18 = 0

review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [1]www.ico.org.uk for details.
