Please refer to the University of Cambridge website for such information:

[1]https://www.plagiarism.admin.cam.ac.uk/i...

Please be advised that for postgraduate students, there is no enrolment
term to fix them to a particular year and therefore we can’t provide
information for questions 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.5.

Due to the small numbers involved we have substituted 0-5 for real numbers
to prevent identification of specific individuals (under Section 40(2) of
the Freedom of Information Act). You have the right to appeal against this
decision by requesting an internal review by ourselves. You may also
complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office, who will only entertain
a complaint after any internal review process is complete.

 

If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your
request and wish to make a complaint or request an internal review of this
decision, you should contact us quoting the reference number given above.
If you choose to do so please state your reasons for dissatisfaction and
any other matters to which the College should have regard.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of your review, you may apply
directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally the
Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted
the complaints procedure provided by the College. The Information
Commissioner may be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office,
Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF
([2]https://ico.org.uk/).
