    I'm just wondering: does the NatSci to Maths include Maths&Physics to Maths?

    I doubt it. I'm pretty sure that's basically still classed as the Maths Tripos (could be wrong though...).

    Lot's of good mathematicians in NatSci so it's not terribly surprising.

    So it'd be included in "Maths to Natsci" numbers then? It just seems weird with the NatSci -> Maths given that they haven't sat STEP, so ruling out switches in first year. And 25 switches in later years seems a little high.

    Yep, according to that FOI approx 300 students change Tripos each year. Although from humanities to a science looks unusual
    That's me all over

    Well there's a LOT of NatScis (over 2000 of them) so a few swapping across after Part I isn't so unlikely.

    Fair enough, I guess.

    ...okay, I think I've got issues. I've been reading "Maths to Natsci" as "Natsci to Maths" and vice-versa for the past 10 minutes. It makes total sense now.

    I don't think it's showing offers yet, and I think your attachment link is broken also.

    Correct, no offers yet. They won't appear for a while (my guess is May).

    The attachment is just a screenshot of the totals for 2017 and prior years. It seems ok on my devices but I'll check it again later.

    Over the last 5 years Computer Science applications doubled, while offers raised by only a third and acceptances are up by around 10%.

    P'raps. But Cauis didn't get a huge spike from hapax legomenon. Or Trinity the year before. Yes they saw increases but not really so much.

    hapax legonemon deserved a spike tbh.. I guess Peterhouse is a small college so perhaps the number of people who are swayed by the UC champions is about the same every year and it just had a bigger proportional effect lol

    Is it common/possible to switch tripos before the start of your degree? I am considering switching to History & Politics, having initially applied for History.

    Not common, but not necessarily impossible. Best to speak to your college asap.
