The request was successful.

Dear University of Bristol,

I'd like to know the average LNAT score for offer holders of the M100 law course during the 2017 to 2018 admissions cycle.

I'd also like to know if there were any candidates with 5 GCSE grades at grade A and 4 GCSE grades at grade B and an LNAT score of 27 and predicted grades of A*AA made an offer during the admissions cycle.

I would only like the information for HOME applicants please.

If the second part of my request is not possible I'll be happy with just the first one answered.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Mohammed Aadam

more details of how applications are assessed.

possible to identify any individuals concerned. The information is exempt

requirement to conduct public interest test. Any information is exempt
from disclosure under the Act if it relates to or is supplied by another
individual and disclosure of that information would contravene any of the
principles of the Data Protection Act (1998).
