Use of the personal statement for undergraduate law admissions

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, University of Warwick should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear University of Warwick,

I would like to request the following data about the admissions process for all of your undergraduate law degrees.

1. Whether a candidate's personal statement (which is submitted through UCAS) is considered by the admissions team when considering whether to give that candidate an offer;

If the personal statement is assessed by the admissions team:
2. A list of the marking criteria/factors that are considered by the admissions team when assessing the candidate's personal statement;
3. Whether a candidate's personal statement is given a score or grade of any kind;
4. The weighting attached to the aforementioned score or grade (e.g. 20%);
5. A list of personal statement scores given to offer holders who had applied for undergraduate study in law at your university in the 2018/2019 admissions cycle (and thus received offers for either 2019 direct entry or 2020 deferred entry).

Yours faithfully,

Samira El Amein
