Select Committee on Education and Employment Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


APPENDIX 13

Further memorandum from the University of Oxford (HE 112)

  Further to my letter of 16 January, and our telephone conversation today, I am sending you more detailed data on percentage success rates for applications by type of school, for the years 1993-94 to 2000-01. As we have discussed, the percentage success rates for 2000-01 indicate that the maintained and independent sectors have reached parity.

  I must stress that the 2000-01 figures are provisional: confirmed figures will not be available until 31 January, after which the University will make them available publicly. However, the figures are not expected to change significantly.
