Notes for information •

• • • • •

These statistics refer to applications made from September 2014 onwards for admission to courses starting in October 2015 or by deferred entry for courses starting in October 2016. Applicants holding a deferred offer from previous admissions rounds are not included. Please note that the statistics also exclude 104 applicants (242 last year) through UCAS who did not submit a Supplementary Application Questionnaire (SAQ) in addition to a UCAS application, as required to complete their submission to the University. The term ‘Home’ refers to applicants who have indicated in their UCAS application that they are UK nationals permanently resident in the UK. For more information about the UCAS application process please see: www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/apply-and-track. Offer figures refer to applicants who received a conditional or unconditional offer of a place. 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. Success rate figures show the proportion of applicants accepted at confirmation. Percentages throughout have been rounded to one decimal place, so values given may not always add up to 100. Please note that the statistics 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 excludes students who withdrew post-confirmation or otherwise did not come into residence at the University. Equivalent tables for the previous application cycle may be found in: www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/files/publications/undergrad_admissions_statistics_2014_cycle.pdf

In this table the three highest A Level grades in all subjects, excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking, are used for scoring purposes. The UCAS tariff score refers to the scoring system where at A Level A* = 140, A = 120, B = 100, C = 80, D = 60, E = 40 and where at AS Level A = 60, B = 50, C = 40, D = 30, E = 20.

In this table the three highest A Level grades in all subjects, excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking, are used for scoring purposes. The UCAS tariff score refers to the scoring system where at A Level A* = 140, A = 120, B = 100, C = 80, D = 60, E = 40 and where at AS Level A = 60, B = 50, C = 40, D = 30, E = 20. More information about the UCAS tariff is available at: www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/getting-started/entry-requirements/tariff. * This table reproduces figures from UCAS, which have been rounded to the nearest five applicants, so the values of the individual categories may not add up exactly to the given totals.

Applications and acceptances for these courses are recorded under the first year subjects taken by the applicants involved. * The ‘All Others’ category includes Home applicants not at UK schools and colleges and all other applicants at any type of institution. † While most applicants for the Medicine Graduate Course apply to Cambridge for entry directly following study at an HE institution, some applicants undertake further science A Level study at UK schools or colleges and are categorised accordingly above. Such applicants are recorded in this table for completeness but omitted from the charts that follow as their number is so small.

The College of application in the data above is defined as the applicant’s first choice College (or, in the case of an open applicant, the College to which the applicant was allocated) regardless of subsequent transfers through the pools. The figures include only Home applicants who applied from a school or college in the UK and show the percentage of applications and acceptances by College from the maintained sector, including FE institutions. * The majority of applicants to the four Mature Colleges apply from institutions other than UK schools and colleges, or independently of a school or college. Relevant applications and acceptances are counted in this table, but differences of one or two applicants can have a disproportionate effect on the percentages year-on-year and no particular conclusion should be drawn from this.

* The ‘All Others’ category includes Home applicants not at UK schools and colleges and all other applicants at any type of institution. Applications: • Applicants to Cambridge can choose to make a direct application to a College of their choice or to make an open application, where the application is allocated to a College by computer algorithm. • Applicants may be placed in the Winter Pool by the College to which they applied (or were allocated in the case of open applicants) for a number of reasons, summarised here: www.undergraduate.study.cam.ac.uk/applying/decisions. Offers: • Direct offers are those made by the College to which applicants applied (or were allocated in the case of open applicants), regardless of whether the application was placed in the Winter Pool. • Offers made via the Winter Pool are those made to pooled applicants by a College other than that to which they applied (or were allocated). • Offer-holders may sometimes be placed in the Summer Pool by their offering College if, following the publication of examination results, they have narrowly missed the conditions of their offer. Acceptances: • Acceptances may be made by the offering College, regardless of whether the application was placed in the Summer Pool, or by a College other than that which made the original offer via the Summer Pool.
