Dear Ms Gurnell,

Thanks for your email. By early June 2020 the vast majority of offers will have been made and so the data would be in an almost-final state. It will not be finalised until after the cycle has closed in early September 2020.

Dear Ms Gurnell,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you. We have confirmed that all of the data you requested originally is available as it relates solely to applications and offers (rather than acceptances) for the current cycle. There is a small possibility of further minor changes to the dataset, but in broad terms it is finalised. Answers to your first two bullet points have just been published in the interactive graphs at https://www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.u...

Would you like us to handle your original request afresh now?
