Dear Robinson College, Cambridge,
Could you please list the criteria and give the spreadsheets (for the last complete UCAS cycle for 2019 entry) that are used for each subject (English, Law, Economics & Psychological and Behavioural Sciences) to assess whether each applicant should get an interview and offer. No names need be in the spreadsheet but column headings of criteria and the actual data so it can be seen the level and scores of each student that is successful in obtaining an interview/offer. Any blank form used to by interviewers to assess during interview would also be appreciated.
Dear Mr Pattison,
Please find below the response to your recent FOI.
The University and the College aim to provide clear information on
applicants' chances of getting a place at Cambridge, while at the same
time maintaining the confidentiality of the academic and personal
information of individual applicants.
We therefore provide a range of information on applicants' chances of
getting into Cambridge by publishing annual statistics of applications,
offers and acceptances:
(1) for each course and/or College for the last five years, through an
interactive graph generator;
(2) by gender, age, geographical region, ethnicity, disability and UCAS
tariffs, through a published report; and
(3) by UCAS Apply Centre, through a published report.
These are available at:
Other guidance on what we are looking for can be found at:
We are not in a position to provide complete or blank forms used by
interviewers to assess during interview as we have concluded that this is
not relevant for Section 43 exemptions.
For applicants to receive an offer in English, Lw, Economics and
Psychological and Behavioural Sciences, all received predicted grades at
least in line with the standard offer. For these subjects, the College
policy is to make that offer, which is A* A A at A-level (or equivalent).
More information can be found
We regularly keep under review the information that we believe is relevant
and helpful for you in assessing your likelihood of coming to Cambridge.
If you have any views or comments on what additional information would
generally be helpful, please let us know at [email address] and we
will feed that into our annual review cycle. We would ask you to review
our published information and please get in touch with us if that
information is not sufficient for your needs.
