Dear Mr King

Further to your request dated 12 December, under the Freedom of
Information Act, the answers to your questions are:

Queens' College no longer holds the data for unsuccessful applicants who
applied for 2017 entry.

We had 13 acceptances and 2 acceptances who have deferred entry until 2018
for Maths. The average UMS for those that took A Levels was 98%.  All
these students were interviewed
and their interview scores ranged between 6-10.  None of these applicants
were put in the Winter Pool and we did not take any applicants out of the
Winter Pool.

If you feel that we have not dealt with your request under the Freedom of
Information Act properly, the College’s procedures indicate that you may
complain to the President who may be contacted at Queens’ College,
Cambridge, CB3 9ET, email: [1][email address]. 

You also have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner for a
decision on whether your request has been dealt with in accordance with
the Freedom of Information Act.  The Information Commissioner will usually
expect complainants to have exhausted an organisation’s internal
complaints procedures before accepting a complaint. 

The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
