Hello Jade

Thank you for your patience whilst I looked into this with my
colleagues.

For Section 1 of the Engineering Admissions Assessment, the data from
the test session is analysed using the Rasch model
([4]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rasch_model). The resulting output
is used to create a raw-total to scaled score conversion table. The
conversion tables for Part A (Mathematics and Physics ) and Part B
(Advanced Mathematics and Advanced Physics) are attached.

With kind regards

Dear Jade Low,

Firstly, thanks for getting this information from Cambridge, it looks like it might be the only data we have from them regarding the engaa. However, it looks like you haven't uploaded (or the website automatically removed) the data that Cambridge sent with regards to conversion tables for section one from raw marks to the mark out of 9.
Could you upload those tables? If not through this website then through some other file sharing service, as this is vital information for analysing the little data the Cambridge has given us.

Many thanks,
Jeremy
