Dear Mr Probert, 
 
Your request was received on 23 August 2017 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom 
of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’). 
 
You asked: 
 
Please would you kindly provide the following: 
1) For Undergraduate Law, the average number of A* at GCSE (amongst those taking 8 or 
more GCSEs) for applicants and those that received offers, preferably shown both by college 
and university. 
2) For Undergraduate Law, the number of applicants interviewed with International 
Baccalaureate grades and the number of applicants given an offer with International 
Baccalaureate grades, preferably shown both by college and university. 
3) For Undergraduate: the number of overseas applicants given by college, preferably with sub-
categories such as White-non UK, Asian, Black. 
4) For Undergraduate: the percentage or ratio of number of overseas applicants to number of 
students at a college, given by college, preferably with sub-categories such as White-non UK, 
Asian, Black. 

 
The requested information, insofar as is held, is attached. All interview processes for entry to 
undergraduate degree courses at the University are set and managed locally by each of the individual 
Colleges and the University does not know interviewees. Each of these Colleges is a separate legal 
entity and public authority under the Act. The data supplied for Q4 relates to the 2016 cycle as we do 
not yet hold 2017 cycle data. In the data supplied for Q4, where a number is between 1 and 3 inclusive 
(but not zero), this has been shown as ‘<4’ (less than 4) to prevent the risk of any individual being 
identified. In presenting the information in this way, the University is engaging the exemption at section 
40(3)(a)(i) of the Act because its release would breach the first data protection principle (the fair and

Please note that the attached document should not be copied, reproduced or used except in

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 write to Dr Kirsty Allen, Head of the 
Registrary’s Office, quoting the reference above, at The Old Schools, Trinity Lane, Cambridge, CB2 
1TN or send an email marked for her attention to xxx@xxxxx.xxx.xx.xx. The University would normally 
expect to receive your request for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this letter and 
reserves the right not to review a decision where there has been undue delay in raising a complaint. 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 University. The Information 
Commissioner may be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water 
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF (https://ico.org.uk/)
