Dear FOI,

Many thanks for you reply. I am looking for the data for EACH MAT score, as stated in my request, not the summary level data you have provided eg 30 candidates for computer science scored 50, 10 were called for interview, 3 were offered a place.

Yours sincerely,

Les Waters

FOI, University of Oxford

Dear Les Waters,

It is not possible to provide the data for each individual MAT score, as the number of candidates for each individual score is, in most cases, very low. We are concerned that individual candidates may therefore be identifiable, along with the result of their application. This would constitute a breach of their personal data. The graphs on page 3 of the pdf document display what we consider to be sufficient information to provide an indication of applications with certain MAT marks' likelihood of success, without sacrificing any individual candidate's personal data.

Yours sincerely,

Information Compliance Team

Dear FOI,

I note your response. I do not agree I am asking for any personal information that could identify candidates. In addition, you provided exactly the requested information for the previous year on 1st October 2018 to S Sayer. Please explain the change in approach, or provide the information requested.

Yours sincerely,

Les Waters

Dear FOI,

I note that I have not received a reply by the indicated date. Please let me know when I can expect to hear back.
