The following tables and charts are produced annually on behalf of the Admissions Forum of the Cambridge Colleges and are intended to provide a statistical analysis of applicants to the Cambridge Colleges based on UCAS data.
The data has been prepared by the Cambridge Admissions Office, Fitzwilliam House, 32 Trumpington Street, Cambridge CB2 1QY; Telephone: 01223 333308; Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Website: www.cam.ac.uk/proxyadmissions/undergraduate/.
Undergraduate admissions statistics are provided in the following categories:
The admissions process
These statistics refer to applicants making an application in October 2008, either for entry in October 2009 or deferred entry in October 2010. Applicants holding a deferred offer from the previous admissions round are not included. Please note that the statistics also exclude 222 (221 last year) applicants through UCAS who did not submit a Supplementary Application Questionnaire (SAQ) in addition to a UCAS application.
The term ‘Home’ refers to applicants who have indicated that they are in UCAS residential categories A, B, C, D or G (that is all categories except O). For more information about UCAS residential categories contact UCAS (www.ucas.ac.uk).
Acceptance figures include only those applicants who received an unconditional firm offer of a place. It excludes those made conditional offers who were unsuccessful at confirmation.
In many places percentages have been rounded to the nearest whole number, so values given do not always add up to 100.
Please note that the statistics contained in this document are not intended for use in the University’s return to the Office of Fair Access (OFFA), as they are calculated on a different basis. OFFA reporting is on a year of entry rather than an admissions round basis and students are classified according to fee status rather than residential category.
Table 7.1 Applications and Acceptances by Socio-Economic Category
UCAS have advised that publication of data relating to the socio-economic classification provided by applicants during the 2008–09 admissions cycle has been delayed. Tables showing application and acceptances by socioeconomic category will therefore be published later in the year
