Dear Mr Yeu,

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request.

 

We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and this information, where it is not exempt is provided
below and attached.

 

Information of all international (who qualify as non UK/EU fee status)
applicants and offer holders respectively for M100 Undergraduate Law
Course at University College London for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 entry:

 

Q1) Number of international students applied and places offered

Q2) Nationalities of offer holders

Q3) Predicted Grades or Achieved Grades in A level, IB or equivalent

 

A1-3) Please see attached PDF document.

 

Q4) LNAT results for multiple-choice section.

 

A4) Average LNAT score:

 

Overseas Applicant                Overseas Offer Holder

2015                            24                   
                        29

2016                            25
                                           29

2017                            23
                                           28

2018                            21
                                           27

 

As you can see, exact counts of four or less have been withheld because
these are 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 s40 (3)(a)(i).

 

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 would be considered as their personal data. The disclosure
of this 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.

 

Please note that although we have not included any identifiable details
for the applicants, we believe providing the information requested for
question 4 for each applicant, could be used by ‘motivated intruders’ and
other knowledgeable third parties to identify individual applicants as
part of a jigsaw-effect. This is where strands of data available to an
individual can be put together to create personal data not in the public
domain. There would be no expectation that this type of information would
be disclosed to the wider public and it would be considered unfair to do
so.

 

It is for these reasons that this information is exempt under section
40(2) of the Act.

 

In light of the above, we have provided you with the average LNAT scores
for overseas offer holders.

 

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

Operations, alternatively you should write to:
