Finance.FOI Requests, University College London

Dear Jane

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 21^st July 2022. 

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for information about UCL’s BSc Biomedical Engineering, BSc
Biochemical Engineering and BSc Management Sciences programmes for the
2020 & 2021 admission cycles.

 

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

 

Your Request:

 

 1. Number of offer holders who missed their offer conditions

 

Course Name 2020-21 2021-22
BEng Engineering (Biochemical) 17 8
BEng Engineering (Biomedical) 31 19
BSc Management Science 201 45
Grand Total 249 72

 

 

 2. Number of offer holders who were able to be admitted into the course
after missing the offer

 

Course Name 2020-21 2021-22
BEng Engineering (Biochemical) ≤5 0
BEng Engineering (Biomedical) ≤5 0
BSc Management Science 27 ≤5
Grand Total 32 ≤5

 

 3. The  number of people who got in on results day for the courses listed
above and the grades(A Level & IB) they applied with

 

Intake:

 

Course Name 2020-21 2021-22
BEng Engineering (Biochemical) 16 12
BEng Engineering (Biomedical) 22 30
BSc Management Science 205 75
Grand Total 243 117

 

Mean A levels of intake:

 

  2020-21 2021-22
Course Name A Level IB Score A Level IB Score
BEng Engineering (Biochemical) A*A*A ≤7 AAA ≤7
BEng Engineering (Biomedical) A*A*A n/a A*AA ≤7
BSc Management Science A*AA 40.1 A*AA 39.6

 

 

As you will see within the tables above, where the number of individuals
is five or fewer (represented by ≤5), this information has been withheld
because, with such low numbers, even providing this information on an
anonymised basis, there is a risk that the individuals may be
identifiable, which means that 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.  In addition, we have withheld the
average IB scores of intake for this programme as these are also based on
groups of seven or fewer individuals (represented by ≤7). This information
has been withheld under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act
2000 (FOIA) by virtue of Section 40(3A)(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 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:

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.

 

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact me using the details
provided in this letter and including the request reference number.

Dear Jane

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 5^th August 2022.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for further information in relation to our attached response to
your request (Ref: FOI 022-485).  Regarding the data provided for question
3, you would like to know if that is the number of firm offer holders who
got into the course, or are those the number of students who got into the
course using clearing/adjustments on results day.

 

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

 

Our Response:

 

Please note:  There is no clearing for these courses but there were
adjustments. Adjustments were higher in 2020-21 due to the Covid results

 

Clearing or adjusted intake:    
Course 2020-21 2021-22
BEng Engineering (Biochemical) ˜5 0
BEng Engineering (Biomedical) ˜5 0
BSc Management Science 40 ˜5
Grand Total 45 ˜5

 

As you will see within the table above, where the number of adjustments is
five or fewer, this information has been withheld because, with such low
numbers, even providing this information on an anonymised basis, there is
a risk that the individuals may be identifiable, which means that 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
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) by virtue of Section 40(3A)(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 belonging 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.
