Above and beyond the rather short timescale, the topics requiring a response seem distinctly vague.
Items suchs as Entry Standards and Research Standards mean very little given the diverse portfolio of most institutions: the entry scores for Medicine are hardly applicable to a Fine Art cohort but then our medics aren't required to be able to draw.
Overall, the request seems rather ill thought out and cobbled together following the loss of the TImes contract.

We have just received the attached message via UUK, I assume many of you
have also received it. We're wondering, given the time of year (leave
etc), how many universities are going to be able to meet a 20th/23rd
July deadline for this request? Straw poll?
