# Class Size Dropoff in Year 3?

Watch
#1
Anyone know why the class size drops off so drastically in the third year, particularly for Laws? The data from table B at this link (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/srs/student-statistics).

Like for laws it goes from 185->43. What happened to those 142 kids? Did they go to another program or dual degree or what's up? I thought the LLB program was 3 years for everyone?

If ur looking at B, then there is a column with Year F, representing students in their final year, I'm guessing that's where they went statistically but I'm not sure what the difference between year 3 and F is.

Haha, I'm just daft, I'm guessing that the students who are still in year 3 instead of year F are probably the ones with a 4th year in some other program like the HKU or Columbia program.

Nahh, don't worry about it. I think it's just a weird classification thing anyway.

Great that you're looking at the stats tho, just remember that data is essentially stupid- it doesn't have any intrinsic meaning. It is what you do with data and how you analyse it that gives it meaning.
