Dear Jesus College, Cambridge,
For the 2020/2021 cycle, I was hoping to find out:
a) how many people applied to this college
b) how many people were offered
c) how many people were offered, specifically for medicine
Thank you for your request. The College is unable to supply further information about the current admissions round.
Relying on Section 36 (2)(c) of the Freedom of Information Act, relating to the effective conduct of public affairs, the College considers that the disclosure of detailed statistics about applications made within the current cycle would be likely to prejudice the notion of a fair and confidential admissions process whereby each applicant has the same information at their disposal. Therefore data will not be disclosed to individuals while the process is ongoing.
Given that extensive statistical information is available about previous admissions cycles is published at https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u... statistics, and that there is a prevailing public interest in maintaining a level playing field in terms of the information available to all applicants, the College declines your request.
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...
