Dear London School of Economics,

For the current entry cycle for Law (i.e. 2018 entry/2019 deferred entry), please may I have, in a single tab at applicant/individual level:

a) An ID to distinguish an applicant (e.g. "1")
b) The applicant's GCSE grades
c) The applicant's A level predicted/achieved grades where applicable
d) The applicant's personal statement score if this exists (separated)
e) The applicant's UCAS form score, if such a score exists
f) Whether they were given an offer or not

E.g:

ID GCSE A2 STATEMENT UCAS OFFER
1 10A* A*A*A* 10 10 Y

Could you please also disclose any methods or procedures used for shortlisting and scoring the UCAS form/personal statement. Thank you very much.

Yours faithfully,

James Wirth

Dear GLPD.Info.Rights,

Where relevant, I would like this info for any students that have taken GCSEs/A Levels, which is in most cases Home/UK students, so for convenience's sake, info for only Home/UK students is fine.

Yours sincerely,

James Wirth

Dear James,

With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find attached the information you requested your questions a to c. Please note that the information comes from UCAS and is entered by the applicants, so not always of the same format.

d) The applicant's personal statement score if this exists (separated)

This does not exist – data not held.

e) The applicant's UCAS form score, if such a score exists

This does not exist – data not held.

Could you please also disclose any methods or procedures used for shortlisting and scoring the UCAS form/personal statement.

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 7849 4622 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.
