    FOI doesn't apply. Data Protection might, in the sense of you being allowed to ask for a copy of all data held about you - but the university would be entitled to charge you for providing it to you.

    There is no 'right' to feedback, as such.
    i swear there is, to be able to access anything with your name on it or something?

    That's the 'right of subject access' provision in the Data Protection Act.

    FOI is quite different.

    St John's for the win!
    Who did you contact for it out of curiosity? I'm probably just going to wait for the informal feedback in October (provided I get the grades etc)

    Haha yes! They posted it on the applicants' website, and asked for requests to be sent by the UCAS referee to the address '[email protected]'. They will only send it to our referees

    Ah, yes I meant Data Protection lucky I didn't apply for a law course hehe, seems like a pretty fundamental one. It would be harsh indeed if they charged people for it huh

    • Hey I have an offer from St. Johns. Do you know whether we have to reply to both the college AND UCAS??? Because I thought all you had to do was just respond on UCAS. Do I have to reply to the college directly too??

    I don't think it's compulsory to reply to the college but I guess it just shows good manners

    Ah yes, I've seen that post I just thought that maybe since its not for rejects you'd email the secretary who sent you the offer letter (was it Mr Stangroom for you??)

    Mine was Dr Colwell! I donno, it just seem like its an effort. If its not necessary then I don't really see the point in it. After all I would just say I accept the offer blah blah etc.

    Lol that's what I said pretty much and also took the opportunity to ask for clarification regarding the second condition (the weird one with the paperwork), although they haven't replied yet

    It didn't specify whether the requests sent to that address should be for unsuccessful or successful applicants, so I just went for it to be honest nope I got my letter from the lady who did my general interview, but I got a reply to my response to her (accepting the offer) from Mr Stangroom! All very confusing :lol:

    What do you mean by "since it's not for rejects"? Sorry!

    Mr Stangroom is one of the tutorial secretaries so I wanted to know whether he's in charge of both bio and phys natscis :P but my letter was also from the tutor who did my general interview - he was really awesome!!

    Lol I just meant that maybe offer holders have to ask for feedback elsewhere

    Confirming on UCAS is obviously compulsory by the usual deadline. If you firm on UCAS the university will get it electronically the same day. Some people don't like to firm on UCAS to see from curiosity what other offers they get, a few are also looking at US universities and a very small number are in doubt whether to go elsewhere. Although the college won't offer a declined place to somebody who has been rejected, they may do so to somebody who was given a differed entry offer but had originally applied for 2015 as first choice.

    Oh ok. So since i've already confirmed cambridge as my firm on UCAS, I don't think I need to reply to the college directly as well then?

    In the time you've taken to debate this you could have just sent your College a quick "thank you for your offer which I'm delighted to accept" email... they asked for one - why not just send it...

    I wouldn't say so, from what I can gather from my letter...

    ... but it is true, they won't retract your offer for sending them an email, and it might leave a good impression for your potential future tutor

    For which subject? If it's medicine they might be in contention for an Open place.
