Dear Downing College, Cambridge,

For the current UCAS cycle, I would like to have the following data with respect to applicants who had applied for engineering :

1. Achieved/Predicted Scores of applicants
2. If they were a home, EU or international student
3. Subjects taken by the applicants
4. Their ENGAA scores (seperated into raws and reported scored for section 1A,1B and 2)
6. Their interview scores
7. If they were admitted, rejected or pooled. Do list if the pooled application was successful and the college which admitted them.

I would appreciate it if I could receive the data in an excel spreadsheet.

Yours faithfully,

Karthik Ram

Paul Boult, Downing College, Cambridge

Dear Mr Ram,

 

Thank you for your request to Downing College concerning Engineering
applicants for the current UCAS cycle.

 

Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act states that personal data
about identifiable living individuals (as defined by the Data Protection
Act 2018) is exempt from disclosure and, as Downing College is only a
small community, we feel that there would be a risk that individuals could
be identified if we were to provide you with line-by-line information
about each applicant, especially as only 13 students were offered places
at Downing. However, I am able to provide you with a summary of the
information as follows:

 

·         We received 94 applications: 9 from the EU, 28 from Overseas,
and 57 from Home.

·         77 applicants were interviewed and 13 offers were made by
Downing; 16 were Pooled and two were offered places elsewhere (Christ’s
College and Hughes Hall).

·         The most popular subjects taken by the applicants: Maths,
Further Maths, Chemistry, Physics, and Economics.
