NOTES

  These figures are taken from the UCAS data base and include only those applicants who applied directly from a school or college in the UK. Some of these will be overseas students studying in the UK.

  The numbers shown by College are the percentage of applicants and the percentage of those finally admitted from maintained schools and FE institutions. (The rest are from independent schools and colleges.)

Mature students not applying through a school or college in the UK are excluded, but these numbers are very small. Mature students may apply either to a standard Cambridge College or to one of the four Colleges who take mature and graduate students only.
