The request was refused by Jesus College, Cambridge.

Dear Jesus College, Cambridge,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I would like to make a request for data stored on applicants to the undergraduate Mathematics (G100) course at Jesus College, Cambridge for entry in 2019.

For each applicant (anonymised), I request the following data:
1) Number of A*s achieved at GCSE (if applicable)
2) A Level subjects declared on UCAS and the grades predicted/achieved (if applicable)
3) Interview Scores
4) Whether the applicant was made a direct offer
5) Whether the applicant was placed in the Winter pool
6) Whether the applicant was made an offer subsequent to being pooled

Yours faithfully,
J. Stewart

Susan Webb, Jesus College, Cambridge

Dear J Stewart,

Thank you for your request.

The College's view is that this is information exempt from disclosure under Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act. Publication of each individual's application details (even if anonymised) could possibly lead to their identification and therefore contravene their right to fair and lawful processing under the Data Protection Act 2018.

We could however provide some averages and figures for the subject as a whole, for this year's admissions round at the College if this would be of use to you.

The University routinely publishes Undergraduate Admissions statistics here if you wish to go further back. I believe that statistics for 2018 (for entry this year) are due to be published shortly.

Further details about making a request to the College, including your rights if you are not satisfied with our response may be found at

Information and advice about the Freedom of Information Act and making requests is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office

Best wishes
