Quartile and Median UMS for each undergraduate course at Cambridge

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Cambridge,

I am making a request regarding the statistics for each undergraduate course at Cambridge in the
2013/14 and 2014/15 cycles

I request the statistics for:
1) The median and quartile ranges for the UMS average of the AS levels of those applying.

2) The median and quartile ranges for the UMS average of the AS levels of those given offers.

3) The median and quartile ranges for the UMS average of the AS levels of those accepted.

Please use Best 3 UMS for Arts & Humanities courses, and Most Relevant 3 UMS for Sciences (or whatever the main ranking UMS criteria is for a specific course). Please indicate the UMS criteria used in the data provided for each course.

Yours faithfully,

David Dinsmore

Dear University of Cambridge,

Correction: please provide Quintile data, not Quartile.

Yours faithfully,

Dear FOI,

As you are unable to provide the data as requested, please instead provide the data in respect of the Y12 data at the time of their applications only. i.e. not including their Y13 results.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Dinsmore,

We write further to our acknowledgement email below having consulted with colleagues in the relevant office. It appears that you may have misunderstood our refusal of your earlier request FOI-2015-245. The UMS data we hold relates to an applicant’s status at the point of application: whilst the majority of applicants just have AS UMS scores, some (for example because they took some qualifications a year earlier than normal) have a mixture of AS and A2 and some (for example because they are applying after a gap year or similar break) have both AS and A2. We do not record 'Year 12 UMS data' separately from 'Year 13 UMS data' in the same way that we do not record ‘AS Level UMS data’ separately from ‘A2 Level UMS data’.

Given this, do you wish us to supply the non-segregated UMS data that we do hold? We look forward to hearing from you (until when, in accordance with sections 1(3) and 10(6)(b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the 20-working-day deadline for us to reply to your request is suspended).
