Dear FOI,

Thank you for the data.

Once the data for point 19 ("Indicate whether an applicant received an offer after interview") is held, please could you re-release all the data in a format akin to the data in University of Oxford's response to the following FOI request from last year: "Economics and management admission statistics at oxford" (URL: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/e... ).

Yours sincerely,

Soi Wan

FOI, University of Cambridge

The University itself never holds data on who was and was not interviewed for undergraduate courses, for the reasons given in our response letter, so this information will never be held.

Dear FOI,

Could you instead just indicate whether the candidate received an offer?

Yours sincerely,

Soi Wan

FOI, University of Cambridge

Yes, we could answer your original Q19 based on all offer-holders (rather than interviewees that subsequently received offers). If you wish us to do so this would constitute a new request. Please let us know if you wish to submit such a request.
