Number of applicants missing conditions of offers

Request 

Hello, 
 
I hope you're well. I'd like to make a Freedom of Information request for the following. In each of these enquiries, I am requesting data for each individual admissions cycle and not for data from the three admissions cycles added together.
 
1. In each of the last three admissions cycles for which data is available, how many UK applicants failed to meet the conditions of their conditional offers?
2. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet their conditional offers, how many were independent school applicants and how many were state school applicants?  
3. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet their conditional offers, how many were students from ACORN categories 4 and 5?
4. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet their conditional offers, how many were students from POLAR quintiles 1 and 2?
 
5. How many applicants who failed to meet the conditions of their offer were allowed to still take up their places over each of the last three admissions cycles for which data is available? Could this please be expressed both as a raw number and as a percentage of the total answer to Q1.
6. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet the conditions of their offer but still took up their places, how many were independent school applicants and how many were state school applicants?
7. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet the conditions of their offer but still took up their places, how many were students from ACORN categories 4 and 5?
8. Of the UK applicants who failed to meet the conditions of their offer but still took up their places, how many were students from POLAR quintiles 1 and 2?
 
9. The total number of unconditional offers given to undergraduate applicants for each of the last three admissions cycles, expressed both as a raw number and as a percentage of the total number of offers given out in that admission cycle?
10. The total number of conditional offers given to undergraduate applicants for each of the last three admissions cycles, expressed both as a raw number and as a percentage of the total number of offers given out in that admission cycle?
 
For questions 2, 3, and 4: could the answers please be given both in raw numbers and as a percentage of the total to question 1? Likewise, for questions 6, 7, and 8 could the answers please be given both in raw numbers and as a percentage of the total to question 5.
 
I've made a spreadsheet template so that you can easily input the answers into the relevant boxes. Please download it/copy it over from here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1cegiisNMyePodplnLU9nKlcdzyDRVwGcFiP_rQbknPU/edit?usp=sharing
 
Thanks so much for your help with this. I realise this looks a quite lengthy request, but as you can see the question format is repeated so I hope it isn't as cumbersome as it might appear. Please do let me know if you have any issues or if the request can be modified so as to better achieve a substantive response.
 
With best wishes,
 

Response
