Chemical Engineering via NatSci request

We're waiting for Mr Smith to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Churchill College, Cambridge,

I am writing to ask if you would be so kind as to provide the following data:

1) Number of people applying for Chemical Engineering via Natural science.
2) Number of people made offers for Chemical Engineering via Natural science with details of all A level and/or AS level subjects and/or GCSE's and/or EPQ qualifications and/or any DofE awards.
3) Number of people made offers for Chemical Engineering via Natural science that did Physics A level.
4) Number of people made offers for Chemical Engineering via Natural science that did Further Maths A level.
5) Number of people made offers for Chemical Engineering via Natural science that did not do Physics AND Further Maths A level.
6) Number of people made offers for Chemical Engineering via Natural science that did do Physics AND Further Maths A level.

I would like this data seperated into columns for each years intake beginning from the latest years intake.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Smith

Sharon Knight, Churchill College, Cambridge

Dear Mr Smith,
 
Re.: Chemical Engineering via Natural Sciences at Churchill College
 
Thank you for your e-mail. To follow, details of applications made to read
Chemical Engineering via Natural Sciences at Churchill College. You did
not stipulate a timeframe in your query, so I have provided figures for
the last three admissions rounds. Both the University and Colleges
frequently express admissions numbers in three-year rolling averages, and
this period should cover natural year-to-year variability.
 
 
We require candidates presenting A Levels to offer *at least* A Level
Chemistry and Maths. We regard Physics and Further Maths as highly
desirable, and most applicants will present one or both of these
qualifications, in addition to Chemistry and Maths.
 
Research conducted by the University has demonstrated that the correlation
between GCSE grades and performance on our undergraduate degrees is weak.
Consequently, we do not put huge emphasis on this qualification when we
are making admissions decisions. In practice, we only looks at relevant
subjects (Maths and Sciences) and would expect high grades in these
subjects. We do not stipulate which GCSEs candidates take; virtually all
applicants presenting GCSEs will have done Maths, Chemistry and Physics
(or double science) and achieved A* grades. As a rule, we are not
concerned about the total number of A* achieved, although the mean figure
for successful candidates is typically 6-7 .
 
Extra-curricular activities such as DoE play absolutely no role in the
Cambridge admissions process, so we do not record this type of data.
 
Similarly, whilst EPQs can enable students to develop independent study
skills, they are not a critical component of the admissions process and we
do not record which students present them.
 
With very best wishes,
