Dear London School of Economics,
I would like to kindly request the following information, for both the BSC econonomics course, and the BSC economics and mathematics course with regards to the past 2 years.
1) Average IB grade of those offered places in the course
2) Average number of A* (I)GCSE grades for those offered places in the course
Can you please confirm if you are requesting predicted IB grades or the actual results? We will place your request on hold until we have received this clarification.
I am referring to the predicted grade offers.
With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached and below the School's response.
Please note that for question 2, we don't have enough data to make a meaningful report. We only have 1 predicted grade available (an A*) for students fitting the criteria.
Each applicant to LSE is considered on his/her merit and in competition with the rest of the applicant cohort in a given admissions cycle. Each application is viewed holistically; assessing the merit, potential, motivation, skills and qualities of applicants by considering all the information presented on the application form. This includes, but is not limited to, academic achievements and qualifications. The personal statement, academic reference and additional social and educational contextual data also form an important part of the selection process. For more information on exactly what contextual information is used in the admissions decision making process please refer to the Undergraduate Admissions Policy.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7955 7554 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk , though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.
