Dear Mr Maxwell,
 
Thank you for your Freedom of Information request regarding Mathematics
application statistics for 2019 entry.
 
Section 40 of the Freedom of Information Act states that personal data
about identifiable living individuals, as defined by the Data Protection
Act 2018, is exempt from disclosure, and as Downing College is only a
small community we feel that there would be a risk that individuals could
be identified if we were to correlate the A-level subjects, interview
scores, predicted grades and UMS. Therefore, here are the figures
presented in decreasing order and in non-correlating lists.
 
(Please note: there were 32 applicants total, but not all applicants took
A-levels and not every applicant was interviewed.)
