Undergraduate law admissions: data on candidates applying through non-traditional routes

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Portsmouth,

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 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

If the data for 2018/2019 is not available for whatever reason, please provide it for 2016/2017 (I am looking for at least two admission cycles’ worth of data, in order to ensure that it is reliable).

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1. The total number of offerholders for the aforementioned law courses.

2. The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed BTECs as their most recent qualification.

3. The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete or had completed a Higher National Diploma (‘HND’) or Higher National Certificate (‘HNC’) as their most recent qualification.

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

5. The number of offerholders who received offers while planning to resit their A-levels. (These individuals will show up on your system as having completed one set of A-levels already, with predictions for at least one other A-level).

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

Yours faithfully,

Samira El Amein
