Dear St John’s College, Cambridge,

I am making a request regarding the statistics for undergraduate applicants in the current cycle who applied with ISC/CBSE (Indian Curriculum) predicted grades.

Please provide for each applicant the following data in a single table with one row per applicant, and columns contain the following data:

*The course the applicant applied for
*The College the applicant applied for
*the applicant's predicted marks.
* a yes/no to indicate if applicant was called for interview
* a yes/no to indicate if offer was made
* a yes/no to indicate if applicant was pooled
* a yes/no to indicate if applicant has received offer from the pool, for the pooled applicants

Yours faithfully,

Shaurya Jain

Freedom of Information Officer, St John's College, Cambridge

Dear Mr Jain
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request concerning statistics
for undergraduate applicants in the current cycle who applied with
ISC/CBSE (Indian Curriculum) predicted grades.
 
To answer your questions would require the processing of the personal data
of applicants for a purpose other than that for which it was obtained and
would therefore conflict with the Data Protection Principles. However, we
can supply you with the following information:
 
In the 2017 Admissions Round we had two applicants who applied with
ISC/CBSE (Indian Curriculum) exams, both for science courses. As the
numbers are so small, we cannot release details of which subjects they
applied for as it may identify them.
 
The predicted grades were in the high 90s across all subjects. Both were
interviewed, one was rejected and one was made an offer at decision
processing.
 
If you are dissatisfied with my response you may seek an internal review
in writing setting out the grounds for review. It will be dealt with by a
College Officer. Should you not be satisfied with the outcome of the
review, you will have a right of appeal to the Information Commissioner by
writing to him at Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.
 
Yours sincerely
