Dear Mark

I am writing further to your request for information regarding Law students. A search of our electronic and paper records has been completed and I can confirm that the information requested is held by the University.

In answer to your request:

Can you please send me the statistics of student applicants for law for the past three UCAS Cycles including the following information:

The data below refers to the M100 LLB in Law.

We are unable to provide information in relation to 2015 as we estimate that to do this would exceed the appropriate limit as defined by the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This is because the data prior to 2016 is not in an easily accessible format and we would have to go through individual applicant records which we estimate would exceed the appropriate limit.

The Act sets a maximum cost of £450 for public authorities responding to requests for information which represents the estimated cost of one person working for 3.5 days in determining whether the information is held, locating it, and retrieving it. Under Section 12 of the Act the University is not obliged to comply with a request that would exceed the appropriate limit and we are therefore unable to process this part of your request.

1) ALL A-level predicted grades and actual grades achieved for AS and A-level and specified for each subject

It has not been possible to provide details of AS level grades achieved for applicants or offers as under the reformed A level system, schools are not required to certificate AS levels.

Attached is information in relation to A level predictions and actual grades.

We are unable to provide further information split by subject as to do so would greatly increase the likelihood of individuals being identified which would breach the First Principle of the Data Protection Act 1998. This information is exempt under section 40(2) personal data as these individuals have a reasonable expectation that their personal data will not be released.

2) GCSE ENGLISH LANGAUGE GRADE

Attached is the information we are able to supply.

Where figures are less than 10 we have not specified the exact number as to do so would greatly increase the likelihood of individuals being identified which would breach the Data Protection Act 1998 as these individuals have a reasonable expectation that their personal data will not be released.

We recognise that, from the information provided here alone, it would be difficult to identify the individuals concerned. Nevertheless, under the remits of the Data Protection Act 1998, we note that personal data constitutes that from which the Data Controller can identify an individual. Therefore there may be other information which you could obtain from the University, either through further Freedom of Information requests or other means, that could be used to identify the individuals here. The risk of this is greatly increased where numbers are less than 10 and it is for this reason that we do not specify such small numbers of individuals. Should an individual be identified then the University would be in breach of the First Principle of the Data Protection Act.

3) Whether they received an offer or not

4) LNAT score

We estimate that the cost of complying with your request for information for questions 3 and 4 would exceed the appropriate limit as defined by the Freedom of Information Act 2000. This is because the information is not easily accessible and we would need to search for it on individual applications which we estimate would exceed the appropriate limit.

The Act sets a maximum cost of £450 for public authorities responding to requests for information which represents the estimated cost of one person working for 3.5 days in determining whether the information is held, locating it, and retrieving it. Under Section 12 of the Act the University is not obliged to comply with a request that would exceed the appropriate limit and we are therefore unable to process this part of your request.

If you are unhappy with the way in which your request has been handled and wish to request a review of our response or to make a complaint, please see the attached information sheet and form.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any enquiries regarding this email.

Yours sincerely,
Karen Page
