The request was successful.

Dear Queen Mary University of London,

I would like to know how many people get enrolled although they have missed their offers (BSc Biomedical Science in the last 3 years).

Please include the number of offers and the number of enrolled students, who did not miss their offer. Also, I would like to request the number of unconditional offers given to students.

1. Missed offer by one grade but still enrolled.
2. Missed offer by two grades but still enrolled.
3. Missed offer by 3 grades but still enrolled.

Yours faithfully,

Rayan Saadi

Dear Rayan Saadi,


Thank you for your email of 12^th November.


I am pleased to provide the response below.

Please note:

·                     This does not include Clearing applications for BSc
Biomedical Sciences since these applications do not have offer conditions
and are always unconditional offers.

·                     The data includes applicants who held an insurance

·                     The table shows the status of the applicants who
were eligible to enrol at the end of the admissions process, rather than
those who actually enrolled. This means the applicant held an
Unconditional offer on the Biomedical Sciences programme by the end of
August of the year of entry. We believe to provide information on all
applicants’ actual enrolment status would exceed the appropriate limit as
defined by the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate
Limit) Regulations 2004. For your information this is £450, calculated as
the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours in determining whether
the information is held, then locating, retrieving and extracting the
information. Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 therefore
makes provision for public authorities to refuse such requests.

·                     The data on missed offer conditions is incomplete.
We record primarily only A level applicants for a missed offer condition,
and not all international equivalencies.


If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [1] for details.

Yours sincerely

Dear QM FOI Enquiries,

Thank you for your response. I really appreciate it.

However, the way that it has been copied into this website makes it confusing to understand, if you could help with the layout of the response?

Thank you in advance,

Yours sincerely,
