Dear University of Cambridge,

I am writing to request statistics regarding the number of undergraduates who commenced Part IA of the Mathematical Tripos, but changed to a different course in the University, dropped out of the University, or disrupted their studies in any way (eg. by intermission).

For the purposes of this request, please consider the streams "Mathematics" and "Mathematics with Physics" to be within the same course (the Mathematical Tripos).

I would like the following data, split by cohort (year of commencement of Part IA of the Mathematical Tripos), and gender.
For each cohort-gender group (one column for each group), please include the following rows:
(i) Size of cohort-gender group at the start of Part IA
(ii) Current size of cohort-gender group (for graduated batches, size of group upon completion of Part II)
(iii) Number of students who switched to a different course within the University
(iv) Number of students who dropped out of the University
(v) Number of students who disrupted their studies (eg. by intermission)

Please provide the data for the cohorts with year of commencement 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019.

Yours faithfully,
Tan Zi An
