Dear David,

 

Thank you for your patience while the information you requested was
collated by the Admissions Department.

 

Data from admissions cycles for entry in 2022 and 2023 is attached.

Under section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act we are not able to
provide line-by-line information relating to our applicants and
offer-holders, as the provision of this information might lead to an
individual person being identified. Instead, we have provided summary data
to provide sufficient information to answer the intention of the request.
Freedom of Information Act Section 40(2) also insists the disclosure is
exempt owing to the small number of individuals concerned. As such we have
stated less than 5 students to prevent identification.

 

 

Alas, data from the 2024 admissions round is unavailable.

The information requested, insofar as it is held (noting that the current
undergraduate applications cycle is ongoing), is exempt under section
36(2)(c) of the Act because its disclosure would be likely to prejudice
the effective conduct of public affairs, in this case the integrity of
Peterhouse's applications and admissions process which form a fundamental
part of its mission as an educational institution. As the information
requested is statistical in nature, the opinion of the qualified person
did not need to be sought for this application of section 36. The current
undergraduate applications cycle is ongoing and applications are still
being assessed. The College considers that the disclosure of detailed
statistics about application and offers made within the current cycle
would likely prejudice the notion of a fair and confidential admissions
process whereby each applicant had the same information at their disposal
and partial granular data is not disclosed to specific members of the
public while the process is ongoing. As this is a qualified exception, the
College has considered whether, in all circumstances of the case, the
public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest
in disclosing the information. The College considers that, while some
people might have an understandable private interest in these statistics,
there is no genuine public interest in them when set against the extensive
statistical information available about previous admissions cycles
published at [1]https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u..., coupled
with prevailing public interest in maintaining a level playing field in
terms of the information available to all applicants.

 

Kind regards,
