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.)
