We refer to your information requests dated 28 November 2021 made under the Official
Information Act 1982 (the Act). You have requested grade distributions of the 2021 POLS306,
LAWS414 and LAWS301 papers.
We note that we received three requests from you. For efficiency we have combined these three
requests together and are providing the information in one response. Please see attached a
spreadsheet that shows the information you have requested.
For each paper we have withheld the highest passing mark and the highest failing mark. This is to
protect student privacy concerns pursuant to section 9(2)(a) of the Act, noting that revealing these
marks would provide information about the highest mark a (passing or failing) student in the class
could have achieved.
We trust that this information will be helpful.
We note your right to seek a review of these decisions via a complaint to an Ombudsman. However,
we would welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns with you first.
