Thank you for your e-mail.  The University will endeavour to respond to
your request under the Freedom of Information Act within 20 working days.
 However, we are currently experiencing a delay in providing responses.

We are currently short staffed and have a significant backlog
of requests which we are working through as quickly as we can.  This means
that some responses may be delayed beyond the statutory 20 days.  We
apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. We have contacted the
Information Commissioner’s Office to explain the situation.

 

We may need to ask you certain questions to clarify your request to ensure
we fully understand what information is being requested. If so, the 20
working day deadline will be calculated once we have received such
clarification.

Dear Mr Dyer,

 

Freedom of Information Request: Applications to Law (FOI-432)

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information Request received on 18^th November.
 We apologise for the delay in providing our response.  We have a
significant backlog which we are working through as quickly as we can.  We
have contacted the Information Commissioner’s Office to explain the
situation.

 

You requested the following information:

 

Your Request

 

Can you please send me the statistics of student applicants for law for
the past three UCAS Cycles including the following information: 
1) ALL A-level predicted grades and actual grades achieved for AS and
A-level and specified for each subject. 
2) GCSE ENGLISH LANGAUGE GRADE 
3) Whether they received an offer or not 
4) LNAT score

 

University’s Response

 

Further to Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”) we
confirm that the information requested is held by the University of
Bristol (the “University”).

 

We are unable to provide a line by line analysis for each applicant as it
could be possible to identify the individuals concerned. The information
requested in questions 1 and 4 is exempt from disclosure under Section 40
(2) of the Act -third party personal information. This is an Absolute
exemption therefore there is no requirement to conduct public interest
test. Any information is exempt from disclosure under the Act if it
relates to or is supplied by another individual and disclosure of that
information would contravene any of the principles of the Data Protection
Act (1998).

 

We have provided you with a summary for the information requested in
questions 2 and 3. The University does not release exact counts of five or
less because these are personal data of third parties or, if linked with
other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to become
personal data. This information has been withheld under section 40(2) of
the FOIA (Personal Information).
