Dear FOI,

Thank you for the information provided. In the notes where it states that the Adjustment pool place is about 'applicants who met all eligibility criteria', does it mean that all five of the five contextual flags were met? If so, could you provide information on those who were considered for Adjustment for meeting at least 3 of the 5 contextual flags as that's what I meant initially - apologies if that wasn't clear. If not, I'll mark the request as complete and thank you again for the information.

Yours sincerely,

Vishal Gupta

We can confirm that the data disclosed related to those applying and where all five contextual flags were met.

Accordingly, this is to acknowledge receipt of your new request for information. Your new reference number is given in the subject line of this email. We will respond on or before 6 March 2020.

Dear Vishal Gupta,

 

We have liaised further internally and our below email of 10 February was
factually incorrect, for which apologies. 

 

The data included in the response to your request included applicants who
met all of the adjustment criteria as follows:

 

- met at least 3 of the 5 contextual flags OR had spent time in local
authority care

- UK domiciled student

- studying at UK school

- interviewed by a Cambridge College during the 2018-19 cycle

- met and exceeded the terms of their conditional firm offer

- contacted Cambridge once the Scheme opened in August 2019 to ask for
Adjustment consideration

 

Further information on these criteria is available at
[1]https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u....

 

Given this, we think that perhaps you already have the data you sought
after all.  Please could you confirm if you wish to proceed with any
alternative/revised request?

 

We look forward to hearing from you (until when, in accordance with
sections 1(3) and 10(6)(b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the
20-working-day deadline for us to reply to your request is suspended).
