Dear University of Auckland,

Correction on the previous request due to a typo.

I stated:
"Please provide the following information for applicants to the Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) program at UoA (University of Auckland) for the last Six (6) years (20013-18) entry under the Official Information Act"

Incorrectly typing in the year. 200013-18, this is meant to be 2013-18

The corrected paragraph should be:
"Please provide the following information for applicants to the Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB) program at UoA (University of Auckland) for the last Six (6) years (2013-18) entry under the Official Information Act"

Please reply as soon as you understand the amended request with regards to the typo.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Joseph
