Information about English Language and Literature admissions process

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Oxford,

According to the Freedom of Information Act, I am requesting the following statistics, broken down by individual colleges if possible, for the past 3 admission cycles for the Q300 English Language and Literature course:

1) I would like to know the average, median and range of ELAT scores for candidates invited to interview and those who were successful.

2) I would also like any scoring or grading system used to assess interview performance and submitted work. If such a form/criteria sheet is provided for admission tutors to record performance, I would kindly request this to be provided separately, and if possible also the average score/grade successful candidates received.

3) The predicted A-level grades and GCSEs of successful candidates(anonymised)

4)Statistics of the number of candidates being drawn to the pool for each college, how many interviews at other colleges did each candidate receive(anonymised) and which were successful

5) Any form/information sheet or general grading system admission tutors used when they present candidates to the pool. If such a document is used, I would kindly request this to be provided separately

Yours Faithfully,
Howard H. T. Liu

Dear University of Oxford,

In addition, I would also like to know
7) How each part of the application process is weighed (UCAS form, ELAT, Submitted Work, Interview) and would ELAT performance be considered when making the final decision of offers

Yours faithfully,

Howard Liu
