Dear UAS Foi,

Hello - thank you for the response. I can confirm that I am ok with the method you wish to use to give AS/A Level Predicted grades, as long as both tabs say whether the person whose grades they were were shortlisted or not and offered a place or not.

Yours sincerely,

James Wirth

Dear UAS Foi,

Please could you provide an update on the request, as today is the statutory deadline.

Yours sincerely,

James Wirth

Dear UAS Foi,

I would like to reiterate that the statutory deadline passed around a week ago.

Yours sincerely,

James Wirth

Dear University of Oxford,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Oxford's handling of my FOI request 'Law Undergraduate 2018 Statistics'.

Dear UAS Foi,

By law, you should have responded to my request by the statutory deadline of 19th February. Thus, your reply is two weeks late, so I would like to request an interval review as to why I have not received a response.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/l...

Yours faithfully,

James Wirth

Dear UAS Foi,

I would greatly appreciate a response to my request.

Yours sincerely,

James Wirth

Dear James

We apologise for the delay in responding to your Freedom of Information request. Increasing levels of workload in all areas of information compliance, including the need to plan for the introduction of new data protection legislation from 25 May 2018, have created pressures which have had an adverse effect on our ability to meet statutory deadlines. We hope to be able to respond to your request by 16 March 2018 and will contact you again should there be any risk of further slippage.

Kind regards
