Dear Ms Behrens,

Thank you for your request.

The College is not able to provide this information at present as the Admissions Round is still in progress and we cannot provide the complete set of statistics that you have asked for.

The information that we have is as yet uncollated and as per Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act would take the College more than the 18 hours (£450) limit to process into a reportable form.

I am sorry that we cannot help you at this time. There are statistics about previous years on the University website see https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u...

Further details about making a request to the College, including your rights if you are not satisfied with our response may be found at https://www.jesus.cam.ac.uk/college/abou...

Information and advice about the Freedom of Information Act and making requests is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office http://ico.org.uk/for_the_public/officia...

Dear Susan Webb,

Would it be possible to include part of the information, and if not, at what time might it be? I would also like to add that similar requests for the same cycle have been responded to by different colleges of the university of Cambridge.

Yours sincerely,

ms Behrens

Susan Webb, Jesus College, Cambridge

Dear Ms Behrens,

Unfortunately not. The admissions round is still "live" so we simply do not have finalised data and are not in a position to collate it yet.

Statistics appear on the University website once prepared, although not in the detail that you have asked for. As we are required by law to exercise proper care in handling and release of personal data it would be unlikely that the detailed list that you have asked for would ever be available due to the risk of individuals being identified.

I have checked dates and the last cycle's statistics were published in May. For ease of reference they can be found here https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u...
