Dear Mark

I am writing further to your request for information regarding M100 Law applications. A search of our electronic and paper records has been completed and I can confirm that the information requested is held by the University.

We note that you sent a very similar request to us in November 2017 (see our response attached). Although you have asked questions in a different way, our response will be similar to that attached as we are unable to provide any further information. We have addressed each point in your new request to provide further clarification.

In answer to your request:

Can you please send me the following statistics for the law course (LLB) ( course code M100)

1. Predicted grades and AS grades for each applicant, and to be specified for each subject

It has not been possible to provide details of AS level grades achieved for applicants as under the reformed A level system as schools are not required to certificate AS levels and therefore many applicants do not now have certificated AS levels.

Information in relation to both A level predictions and actual grades was attached to our original response (see attached).

We are unable to provide further information split by subject or by applicant 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. The LNAT score for each applicant

3. Whether they received an offer or not

As we confirmed in our last response (see attached), we estimate that the cost of complying with your request for information for questions 2 and 3 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.

In addition i want the information to be set out for every applicant in the following structure please:

Applicant 1:
predicted grade: SPECIFIED for each subject AS grades: SPECIFIED for each subject LNAT score:
Whether they received an offer or not:

We received over 1900 applications for the M100 course in 2018 and we estimate that to provide the information you have asked for would exceed the appropriate limit (see full explanation above).

In addition, we would be unable to list the applicants individually 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.

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
