The same FOI also has a breakdown by College. Note the Adjustment process acts like another Summer Pool, so it's less likely an Adjustment applicant will land a place at their original college.

What makes a person more likely to get in through adjustment. Is it mostly your grades at the end, or how you did during the application process

As with all things Cambridge, it's holistic. They will re-assess your entire application incorporating your A-level grades.

Just found this FOI. It shows the number of applicants and acceptances via Cambridge Adjustment in 2019:

Overall 152 Applied, with 67 Accepted.

Attachment 880074
What an amazing find, nice one.

I know that 71 were offered a place. I wonder what courses those 4 have applied for.

Is it just me or is anyone else starting to doubt whether or not Cambridge is right for them?

Was definitely rethinking whether I should even bother doing adjustment if I do exceed my firm. Fear of imposter syndrome? On the other hand, I still think if you got pooled (which you have) Cambridge do think you are a typical student that would study there.

That's true but then again the fact that I got rejected from pool makes me feel like even though Cambridge thought I could study there, I just wasn't good enough compared to everyone else in the pool.

Also I've been told that the amount of work you're expected to do at Cambridge means it's just not worth it because you could go to somewhere like Imperial and not be under as much stress and enjoy uni life more while still getting a degree at the end of it.

Out of the ones who were offered a place last year, how many were pooled?

Do you think being pooled or not could have an impact on your adjustment application?

No idea.

No.
Wouldn't it make sense for pooled applicants to have a higher chance of being successful in adjustment than non-pooled (assuming they achieved the same A level results)?
I'm only assuming this since I thought Cambridge consider your whole application again before letting you in and pooled applicants would have a better application than non-pooled applicants?

Not really, and yes your achieved A-level grades will be a significant factor.

But fundamentally I wouldn't overthink all this.

If someone is interested in a "second chance" with Cambridge, and they qualify for Adjustment, etc - then they should Adjust and see what happens, if not don't.

Yeah whether or not we've been pooled shouldn't be an excuse not to work as hard as we possibly can for that spot
