Dear Arnaud

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 2 April and

We have completed the compilation of information for the admissions
statistics for A level Independent school applicants in 2018, 2019, 2020,
2022 and 2023 for M100 course.

 

I would like to ask for below statistics with the breakdown per year:

 1. Number of independent school A level students applying to M100 course
in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023
 2. Number of independent school A level students who received an offer
for M100 course in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023
 3. Predicted grades of independent school A level students who applied to
M100 course in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023
 4. Predicted grades of independent school A level students who received
an offer for M100 course in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022 and 2023
 5. The mean, minimum and maximum interview score of offer holders from
independent school who applied to M100 course in 2018, 2019, 2020,
2022 and 2023
 6. The mean, minimum and maximum score for Essay of offer holders from
independent school who applied to M100 course in 2018,2019, 2020, 2022
and 2023
 7. The college applied to by each independent school applicant for above
mentioned courses
 8. The breakdown of applicants and number of offer holders and successful
applicants from Wycombe Abbey School, St Mary's School Ascot,
Cheltenham Ladies College for M100 course in 2018, 2019, 2020, 2022
and 2023

 

You further clarified to disregard questions 5, 6 and 7. In question 8,
you clarified ‘successful applicant’ as the applicant who received an
offer from UCL and further provided the following codes for the schools
mentioned:

 

• Wycombe Abbey

URN: 110547, DfE number: 825/6018

UKPRN: 10008608

 

• St Mary's School Ascot

URN: 110120, DfE number: 868/6002

UKPRN: 10006235

 

• Cheltenham Ladies College

URN: 115798, DfE number: 916/6036

UKPRN: 10017612

 

We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and this information is provided in the document attached.

 

As you will see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
individuals is 5 or fewer (indicated by the symbol ≤5), the information
has been withheld because, with such low numbers even providing this
information on an anonymised basis, it may be possible to identify the
individuals, which would make this 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 by virtue of Section 40(3A)(a).

 

We have also withheld all the ‘offers’ information in relation to question
8.  This is because the numbers involved are so low that there is a risk
of identification of individuals when coupled with the ‘application’
information in question 8, even if we used the ≤5 approach.  This
information has also been withheld under Section 40(2) of the FOIA by
virtue of Section 40(3A)(a).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles. In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data. The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

 

If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:

 

Vice-President (Operations)

Please note, complaints and requests for internal review received more
than two months after the initial decision will not be handled.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner at the address given below.
You should do this within two months of our final decision.
