Why was Warwick Engineering so oversubscribed this year?

Why was Warwick Engineering so oversubscribed this year? (2022 entry, cohort). The last 8 years this school/department was in clearing so why all of a sudden is it not in clearing?

Probably because many people deferred applying due to covid, including international students

Course numbers changed/applicant numbers increased/offer holder yield improved/more deferrals/accepted more near misses... it could be any number of things, you can always submit some FOI requests to get s better idea.

What are the odds of them not being in clearing for this subject again next year (2023 entry)?
Also how do I go about doing an FOI request do I simply email the university and if so do I just ask for the statistics on how many people were accepted and how large the over subscription of the course was this year?

It’s not possible to answer this with reasonable confidence either way.

It's known more for Maths, MORSE and those type of courses rather than Engineering.

yeah definetely, i assumed it was only really good for maths econ cs and stuff
but since im considering EEE, id assume its maths and cs would mean its engineering must be atleast decent?
is it actually bad for eng or just not special?

ahh i see, will take this into consideration.
thanks so much
In previous years Warwick Engineering was in clearing for 5+ years straight, however from 2020 onwards (covid years) the course stopped going into clearing because students were being predicted better grades because of covid. My question is did warwick engineering actually fill all those spaces in the years that it did go into clearing. Furthermore, do you have any link for clearing statistics for warwick?
