Update on Undergraduate Admissions

Since last week, Fitzwilliam has been working with offer-holders who have missed the terms of their offer. This work has involved correspondence with schools to obtain background data, including Centre Assessment Grade (CAG) data, to enable us to confirm places.

In the light of the government announcement on the use of CAG data, we are delighted that this work can be rapidly accelerated. According to our current data, we are nearing 80% of our UK intake next year from state schools, with over 50% of these from underrepresented groups.
