Dear University of Cambridge,

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information from the University of Cambridge:

The number and percentage the applicants to KL41 Land Economy, the number and percentage of those that were made offers, and the number and percentage of those which achieved those offers and were admitted to the university, for each of the application cycles 2013-2018, inclusive, as well as the averages over that 5 year period, in the following categories:

total (offering any subject(s))
those not offering any post-GCSE Mathematics qualifications
those offering any post-GCSE Mathematics qualification(s)
those offering IB SL Mathematics or Mathematical Studies
those offering IB HL Mathematics and/or IB HL/SL Further Mathematics
those offering A-level Mathematics
those offering A-level Mathematics and either AS or A-level Further Mathematics
those offering A-level Law
those offering A-level Law in combination with any post-GCSE Mathematics subject

Please provide the information in the form of a PDF file(s). As above, please indicate these values for each application cycle noted, as well as the average across the application cycle, including the relevant percentages for each data set. Individual applicant information is not required in line with preventing the disclosure of personally identifiable information.

If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.

If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to reply to this request and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.

Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,

S Powers

After contacting the Cambridge Admissions Office we write to seek clarification on what you mean by "any post-GCSE Mathematics qualifications". Do you mean simply A-Level or IB qualifications or are you including the wide range of other qualifications, both inside and outside the UK, that applicants might apply with?

We look forward to hearing from you (until when, in accordance with sections 1(3) and 10(6)(b) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the 20-working-day deadline for us to reply to your request is suspended).

Dear FOI,

This nominally would include all qualifications; however if this would take more than 17 hours to collate, I am satisfied to restrict it to major UK quaifications (IB, A-level, SQA Higher/Advanced Higher, and Cambridge Pre-U).

Yours sincerely,

S Powers
