2) the overall offer rate for students applying through UCAS
3) the offer rate for "Common Application" applications submitted before January 15
4) the offer rate for "Common Application" applications submitted after January 15

Yours faithfully,

Dear Mr Alexander

 

Colleagues have asked me to get in touch with you to request clarification
in relation to your request below. 

 

Specifically, they would be grateful if you could clarify the following:-

 

1.          We assume that by ‘overall offer rate’ you mean the percentage
of applicants receiving a conditional or unconditional offer, is this
correct?

2.          We assume that by ‘years 2016-2018’ you are referring to year
of entry.  On this basis we would count applicants for deferred entry
against their year of entry rather than their year of application.  Is
this what you are asking for?

 

3.          The Common Application is available to all applicants, not
just applicants from the USA.  However, it is typically used by Overseas
applicants, so a comparison with all applications submitted through UCAS
may give a misleading impression of comparative offer rates.  Would you
prefer the offer rate for Overseas and Home/EU fee status applicants to be
presented separately to allow for more meaningful comparison?

 

Your request will be placed on hold until we receive the requested
clarification from you.  If however we do not receive clarification within
30 days of this email we will consider the request closed.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely
