This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Corpus Christi College, Oxford,

Please provide the following information:
1. For each year from 2010 to 2019, how many appeals and complaints (Stage 1 of appeal process) relating to undergraduate admission did the college receive?
2. For each of these years, how many of these appeals and complaints were upheld at Stage 1 and resulted in an applicant receiving an offer? (ie a student appealed a rejection for an undergraduate course and subsequently received an offer from the college without the need to progress to Stage 2 of the appeal process)

Please list appeals and complaints separately.

Thank you for your assistance.
Dr. Mike Whittome
