Dear Jose Carlos,

 

This is in reply to your enquiry received by the College on 6 July and
made under the Freedom of information Act 2000 (FOIA). I can confirm that
the College does hold some information related to your enquiry. The
information as held by the College is

 

1) Oct 2014 - 12 applicants and 2 offers. We do not hold the applicant
numbers information for 2013 or 2012, there was 1 offer made each of those
years.

 

2) Oct 2014 applications - mean predicted score = 41.6. We do not hold the
information for 2013 or 2012.

 

Offer holders: because it is not possible to anonymise the data the
information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act
section 40(2), third party personal data.

 

3) Again, because of the low number of offers it is not possible to
anonymise the data. Therefore the information is exempt from disclosure
under the Freedom of Information Act section 40(2), third party personal
data.

 

I attach a leaflet outlining the College's FOI Act policies and
procedures.  If you have further questions please ask me in the first
instance. If you are not satisfied with the way in which your request has
been dealt with you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for
a decision. Generally, the Commissioner will not entertain your complaint
unless you have exhausted any relevant internal review procedures.

 

Yours sincerely

Peter Jones
