Undergraduate law admissions: data on candidates applying with an Access to HE Diploma

The request was successful.

Dear Kingston University,

I would like to request the following data relating to all law courses (i.e. both the single honours LLB or BA and any joint honours law courses) offered by your university.

I am requesting the data for candidates who received offers for one of the aforementioned law courses in the 2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/2021 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

If the data for 2020/2021 is not available for whatever reason, this is understandable.

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1) The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

2) The average, highest and lowest LNAT scores (where applicable) of the offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

3) The average, highest, and lowest number of GCSEs of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Singh

Dear Mr Singh,

Further to your recent request for information, the University’s response
follows.

I would like to request the following data relating to all law courses
(i.e. both the single honours LLB or BA and any joint honours law courses)
offered by your university. I am requesting the data for candidates who
received offers for one of the aforementioned law courses in the
2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/2021 admissions cycles (I refer to these
candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

 

1) The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had
completed an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent
qualification.

 

2018/19               Data not available

2019/20               17

2020/21               11

 

The above figures include applications which listed the Access to HE
diploma. We are unable to identify whether it is the most recent
qualification. Please note that the full set of applicant data is only
retained for 2 years in line with data protection regulations. The only
data held in relation to your request for 2018/19 is that relating to
applicants who subsequently enrolled at the University.

 

2) The average, highest and lowest LNAT scores (where applicable) of the
offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed an
Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

 

The University does not hold this data.

 

3) The average, highest, and lowest number of GCSEs of offerholders who
were either planning to complete or had completed an Access to Higher
Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

 

The University does not hold this data.

This completes the University’s response to your information request. If
you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request an internal review of our
decision please contact:

Director of DPO, email : [1][email address] or by post:
 Kingston University, Hind Court, 106–114 London Road, Kingston upon
Thames, Surrey, KT2 6TN. Please note that we are unable to receive post to
this address, whilst staff are working away from campus as a result of the
Covid-19 situation.

In the event that you are not content with the outcome of your complaint
you may then apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision
unless you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by Kingston
University. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:

The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane,
Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

I hope that you now have the information you require.
