Dear University of Cambridge,

Please can you advise for the past 5 years

2. The proportion of offers to those with post A level acheived A level grades of 3 or 4 A* in Science subjects ?

3. What percentage of UK candidates with 3 A * at A level and at least 10 A * at GCSE( with no lower grades) are shortlisted. Are they automatically interviewed and pooled ?

4. What weighting is given to UCAS scores, A level A *, GCSE A* and then the NSAA test and School reference and Interview ? Does Cambridge have an algorithm to calculate a scaore for this and if so please set exactly out how it works. Ie 4 A * at A level is 10 points and 10a* at GCSE is 10 etc ?

5. Is there a min cut off score for NSAA ?
