it is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. this means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. it is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.
the data contained in the tables in this workbook (tables 1a, 1b, 2a and 2b) have been rounded and suppressed as follows:
numerators and denominators have been rounded to the nearest 10. where the numerator or denominator rounds to 20 or less, the data will be suppressed with an 'n'.
percentages will be rounded according to the smallest, unsuppressed denominator with a given mode and characteristic. if the denominator rounds to:
n/a' is displayed where there is no provision in a given mode or level
dp' indicates suppression for data protection reasons. this is applied where the numerator is two or less, or differs from the denominator by no more than two students.
