1. rUK (England, Wales, NI) domiciled students? How many of these gained their entry qualifications at a private or fee paying school?

2. EU domiciled students? How many of these who gained their entry qualifications at a private or fee paying school?

3. Scottish domiciled students who gained their entry qualifications at a private or fee paying school? if any of these applicants were in the SIMD20 regarding deprivation, please state how many.

4. overseas domiciled students? How many of these gained their entry qualifications at a private or fee paying school?
