Dear Mr Yunus,

We refer to your below email and an almost identical one timed a few minutes earlier.

We will carry out a formal internal review if you wish, but it appears that you have misunderstood our response. We stated in our covering letter that we did not hold much of the information because we do not hold statistics about who is interviewed. That is why no information was supplied for those questions.

Your original request did not ask for the statistics we do hold to be broken down by College. If you wish to ask for this now you will need to submit a new request.

Please let us know how you wish to proceed.

Mr. Samir Yunus

Dear FOI,

But I did not receive any Statistics for unsuccessful applicants although I have ever requested statistics for unsuccessful applicants with their BMAT and A levels results , in my original request. So please could you provide me with these statistics.

Please, could you carry out the formal internal review? If you don’t mind. And could you make the statistics in this response broken down by college without the need to make a new request ? In this case you will help me much because I really need these information and I can not wait more.

Yours sincerely,

Mr. Samir Yunus

FOI, University of Cambridge

Dear Mr Yunus,

We reiterate for a third time that we do not know which applicants were 'successful' or 'unsuccessful' in terms of receiving an interview or not, which is how those questions were framed.

As you have specifically requested an internal review we will now carry this out. Accordingly, this is to acknowledge receipt of your request for a review of our handling of request number FOI-2020-316. We will respond on or before 22 June 2020. We will include your new request for college-by-college statistics within that review and reply at the same time. There is no way to expedite this as you did not ask for it originally.
