We're waiting for Edward Hammond to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge,

It would be wonderful if you could provide the following information for any re-applicants for the Natural Sciences Tripos, at Gonville and Caius, between 2015 and the current application cycle.

a) Interview?
b) Offer?
c) Number of A* A Levels
d) Average UMS Score
e) Average Natural Science Admissions Assessment Scores
f) Any commonalities in the way successful re-applicants spend their gap year

I am aware that the college may not be able to differentiate between those applicants who were previously rejected and are re-applying, and those applicants who are applying for the first time after receiving A Level grades. If such is the case, it would still be wonderful if you could provide the information above for any post-A Level applicants.

Yours faithfully,

Edward Hammond

CAIUS Senior Bursar, Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge
