Thank you for your e-mail.  The University will endeavour to respond to
your request under the Freedom of Information Act within 20 working days.
 However, we are currently experiencing a delay in providing responses.

We are currently short staffed and have a significant backlog
of requests which we are working through as quickly as we can.  This means
that some responses may be delayed beyond the statutory 20 days.  We
apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. We have contacted the
Information Commissioner’s Office to explain the situation.

 

We may need to ask you certain questions to clarify your request to ensure
we fully understand what information is being requested. If so, the 20
working day deadline will be calculated once we have received such
clarification.

Dear Sir,

 

Freedom of Information Request FOI8537

 

I refer to your Freedom of Information Request received on 24th November
2018.

 

Your Request and Our Response

 

Further to Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”) we
confirm that the information requested is held by the University of
Bristol (the “University”).

 

Please accept our sincere apologies for the delay in responding. We have
experienced a high volume of requests. We have made the Information
Commissioner's Office aware.

 

Find attached spreadsheet which I trust will satisfy your query. Please
note that columns in the green table relate do not relate to the columns
in the blue table. We have made this change in order to prevent you from
identifying predicted scores by nationality as some nationalities
represent a very low proportion of applications and to have otherwise
provided you with the data in structured format would have meant
individuals could have been unfairly identified. Under s.40(2), we would
have exempted this information. We have made these changes in order to be
as transparent and helpful as possible whilst protecting the rights of
those who entrust their personal data to us.

 

Internal Review Procedure

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request then you have a
right under Section 50 of the Act to request an internal review.  All such
requests must sent to us within 40 days and must clearly state your
reference number and your reason for your request for an internal review. 
We will respond to your request for an internal review within 20 working
days of receipt.

 

Your request for an internal review should be sent to:

 

Director of Legal Services

Secretary’s Office

University of Bristol

Beacon House

Or you can email your request to [University of Bristol request email],
quoting your FOI reference number at the head of this letter.

 

Information Commissioners Office

 

Should you remain dissatisfied with the final outcome of the internal
review then you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner (the
“ICO”) for an independent review.  The ICO is the Government’s Independent
Body responsible for overseeing the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the
Data Protection Act 2018 and The Environmental Information Regulations
2004.

 

Please note the ICO will only review cases that have exhausted the
University’s internal review procedure. All correspondence to the ICO must
