Dear University of Oxford,

Thank you for your reply. I have one small follow-up request:

Where the number of applicants/shortlist/offerees is 0 (zero), could you please put "n.a." instead of <3, in order to make the dataset more meaningful? If one wants to see whether a college has accepted someone for PPE studies or not, the existing numbers are not meaningful. I would appreciate if this could be done for either the Mature Students dataset, the Senior Status dataset, or both, if possible.

Yours sincerely,

Man-Hon Yeung
