Dear Joseph,

Thank you for your email which contained a request for information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.

I'm afraid that information relating to those individuals applying to us is Personal Data and the College does not have the consent of applicants to process that data for the purpose of responding to requests such as this. However we do publish a great deal of data relating to admissions as well as advice on the admissions process.

At https://www.emma.cam.ac.uk/admissions/un... we provide information about admissions to the College to study Economics including details of our standard offers for the subject.

At https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u... the University provides information about entrance requirements across subjects and across colleges.

At https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u... the University provides detailed admissions data relating to the admissions cycles form 2011 to 2016 which includes application numbers by college and by subject.

I am attaching some guidance notes for those requesting information under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act.

Yours,

Mike Gross
