And someone with the potential to study at Cambridge should have a) the research skills to see this has been done to death before and b) the ability to understand that it is impossible to measure.

Who said anything about going to Cambridge? I'm just curious.

Then why are you having a transcript dilemma and worrying about how many colleges you can apply to on the SAQ etc?

Off the top of my head I would say traditionally competitive subjects like medicine, law etc but actual statistics might differ on that

I have noticed that the applications to admissions ratios for many of the top universities (such as Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial) for computer science are very high (I think Imperial was 10-1 or 12-1)

Imperial is crazy this year. Apparently it was 18:1 applicants to places for computing. They're now raising the entry requirements for 2020 entry.

A review was done a couple of years ago by I think the Telegraph. Cambridge had the 8 top subjects based on entry points and Maths had the highest points. Of the top 10 universities Maths and Physics were the top subjects for entry points.

That's insanely high. Although it kind of makes sense, as computing and technology is becoming very important in the world...

Going by applications per place is misleading because some subjects attract more underqualified applicants than others. But if you take that into account there's no real way to compare different subjects since the pools of people applying for say architecture and medicine are very different.

This information is published on their admissions pages every single year, as link by an above poster.

Normally the most competitive are graduate entry medicine and architecture in most years however. Both are very small courses with a lot of applicants, and a wider range of requirements for entry too (e.g. the portfolio for architecture, work experience for medicine).
