Dear Jesus College, Cambridge,

I would like to request the BMAT scores and corresponding interview scores of each A100 candidate successful in receiving an offer from Jesus College for 2021 entry. Separately, I would also like to know the same scores for all applicants placed in the pool. If possible could you please indicate which of these applicants were offered a place from another college? Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
Jack Gunning

Dear Jack

Thank you for your request. Relying on Section 36 (2)(c) of the Freedom of Information Act, relating to the effective conduct of public affairs, the College considers that the disclosure of detailed statistics about applications made within the current cycle would be likely to prejudice the notion of a fair and confidential admissions process whereby each applicant has the same information at their disposal. Therefore data will not be disclosed to individuals while the process is ongoing.

Given that extensive statistical information is available about previous admissions cycles is published at https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u... statistics, and that there is a prevailing public interest in maintaining a level playing field in terms of the information available to all applicants, the College declines your request.

Further details about making a request to the College, including your rights if you are not satisfied with our response may be found at https://www.jesus.cam.ac.uk/college/abou...

Dear Jack,

Please see attached for data about offer holders.

Unfortunately we are unable to retrieve this data about students who were pooled. More information about the pool process is here. https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u...

Please note that it is possible to be both pooled and then offered a place by your original College.
