Dear Emmanuel College, Cambridge,
I would like to request some data on the A100 applications from the last four admissions cycles, under the terms of the Freedom Of Information Act 2000.
The data I would like is as follows,
1) How many applicants applied post A level and of those how many received interview and offers.
2) For the applicants who were given offers (post a level ) and the ones who didn't (post a level) could I get anonymised data on what A Levels they had taken and their average ums scores in each invididual subject. If an applicant took retakes , could this be indicated as well as how many were taken.
As well as this, I would like their bmat scores.
3) Could I also have a copy of any scoring system used before, during or after interview.
4) Finally, how is contextual data used for gcse's and are there personalized offers for medicine?
Thank you for your email which contained a request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.
The College does not hold data which comprehensively categorises applicants into pre and post A level or pre or post other final examinations. I am unable therefore to provide information relating to your points 1 and 2. In relation to your point 2, I would not in any case be able to provide the data requested since, given the distinctive pattern of A level subjects and ums scores for each applicant, there would be a clear risk of individuals being identified from that data and personal data therefore being released.
Each interviewer uses a 10 point scoring system to record their overall assessment of an applicant. A higher score is awarded to a candidate who, on the basis of all the information available including the interview, appears strong, with a lower score awarded to a candidate who appears less strong.
Information on the use of contextual data as part of the application assessment process is published on the University website at http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk...
Information relating to the College's offer policy for places to study medicine is available at https://www.emma.cam.ac.uk/admissions/un...
I am attaching a guidance note for those requesting information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.
