other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to become

protection principles enshrined in the Data Protection Act 2018.

Dear University of Bristol FOI Team,

Majority of the information you provided are satisfactory. However, if you could please clarify your answer to Q5, in clear and comprehensible format.

Allow me to rephrase Question 5, what is the progression rate of IFP students applying to a law degree at UoB? For instance, if 10 IFP students applied to a law degree, and only 7 successfully progressed to a law degree, the progression rate would be %70.

Your work is much appreciated.
Yours sincerely,

Mohammed H. G. Almojel
